I love the way Hypnobirthing helps you get in touch with that deep instinctive part of you that “knows” how to birth your baby so that by listening to your body you can help it to work as well as it can. And the amazing thing is that when you can do this, bringing your baby into the world becomes the lovely experience it can and should be – even when your body needs a little help.
It was my daughter’s first labour, which was long and difficult and ended in a caesarian section, which pushed me to explore hypno-birthing. My daughter came on one of my courses for her second baby and went on to have a lovely, calm home birth. When I taught antenatal classes for NCT I always felt there was something missing – hypno-birthing supplies that something.
