Hypnobirthing is growing in popularity worldwide, it’s been huge in The States, the UK and Australia for a while and now we’re finally hearing about it here in Sweden, but what is it exactly…
Hypnobirthing, when taken as a course is a complete birth preparation method for both the pregnant person and their partner/support person. You don’t need to do any additional birth preparation courses but if you do, they will compliment one another nicely.
Hypnobirthing is a combination of deep relaxation, breathing techniques and knowledge about the body, birth and birthing environment. Together these create a fantastic foundation for exploring birth.
Unique to Hypnobirthing is fear release through self hypnosis and reframing negative assumptions/thoughts about birth. It also has very beneficial effects during pregnancy and the time after the birth.
