Hypnobirthing Swansea - Teachers' Directory
I was a first-time mum in 2016, and I thought I already knew most of what I needed to know. I'm a biology teacher, and what I didn't know, I'd just Google, right? Everybody does it, so giving birth must just be easy, I'll be fine. In amongst my Googling, I did come across Hypnobirthing, but wasn't really interested in finding out more.
More than anything, I wish I had found out more and utilised Hypnobirthing when my son was born. I was in labour for three days, I was totally unprepared, and I ended up traumatised and terrified of the possibility of ever needing to go through that again.
When I became pregnant for the second time, I was determined to make sure it was a more positive experience. I promised myself that if hypnobirthing was everything I'd hoped for, I would teach others and help them have the same positive experience.
... and hypnobirthing was everything I'd hoped for... and more.
It's a logical, evidence-based approach to pregnancy and birth, and it gave me all of the options and information I needed.
My husband was sceptical at the start but really enjoyed learning about the biology of birth and was relieved that he was given a specific role in the birth. The relaxation techniques were a great resource during my pregnancy and when my waters broke in the middle of the night, we were both prepared, calm and confident.
