How does HypnoBirthing work?
"HypnoBirthing is a tried and tested method that lets you discover the joy and magic of birth, and is much more than just self-hypnosis or hypnotherapy. The method has been developed from the work of the British obstetrician, Grantly Dick-Read, the pioneer of natural childbirth.
It is deeply relaxing and effective, and allows your mind and your body to work in harmony, the way nature intended.
The Advantages of using HypnoBirthing during childbirth Eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome before, during and after birthing Allows relaxation, and side-effect free pain relief during labour Eliminates or greatly reduces the need for chemical painkillers Shortens the first stage of labour by several hours Eliminates fatigue during labour, leaving the mother fresh, awake and with energy for actual birthing More rapid postnatal recovery Returns birthing to the beautiful, peaceful experience nature intended Creates a more integral role for the birthing companion
