World Hypnobirthing Day
The second “World Hypnobirthing Day” takes place on Saturday 21st March 2020.
Celebrating the immense impact that Hypnobirthing has had on so many women, their birth partners and of course their babies! And how this has changed the lives of birth professionals as they care for these parents-to-be.
History and Growth of Hypnobirthing
From its infancy with research from Dr. Grantly Dick Reid, work from Ina May and Michelle Leclaire O'Neill, hypnobirthing has come on in leaps and bounds. The graph below shows the growth in interest in the worldwide searches of hypnobirthing (from Google trends). The middle spike shows when Prince George was born in 2014 (with the world's media speculating if Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, had used hypnobirthing techniques) and the far right spike recently in 2020 is when Kate actually confirmed in a podcast that she had used hypnobirthing for all three of her royal births. On top of this, the rise of high profile celebrities sharing their own hypnobirthing stories, have lead to the steady rise in people in people talking about it and knowing what it actually is!
