No Pain Relief Hypnobirthing: The Guardian's View

A number of articles have appeared in the press following on from the backlash that Harry Kane received after praising his partner Katie Goodland after her 'no pain relief hypnobirth'.

After talking to Katharine Graves about Hypnobirthing, The Guardian published a comprehensive article.

Katharine's comments include; "This is the biggest revolution in birthing in history......It still has connotations of tree-hugging hippies but people are beginning to realise there is another way.  Our country is one of the most advanced in the world in this area, but we still have a way to go."

Why are naysayers shaming Harry Kane for being proud of his partner Katie's hypnobirth?

Harry Kane just shared a joyous moment with the world after the birth of his daughter.   The twitter storm that followed has been both shocking and upsetting.

It has put hypnobirthing at the centre of this storm, with detractors misinterpreting what it is, and how it helps women.

It also puts women and their birth experience at the centre of this storm.  This chatter can have some far reaching knock-on effects that can be very negative to a women's birth experience.

The popularity of hypnobirthing has increased dramatically over recent years and this is certainly helped as more celebrities jump on the bandwagon and publicly share their experience with the media. In a recent issue of OK! Magazine they investigate it further:

'Hypnobirthing has become all the rage among celebrity mums and has apparently even been given the royal seal of approval. HRH the Duchess of Cambridge, who displayed the first signs of a baby bump during a reception at Buckingham Palace last week, is thought to have used the technique when she was pregnant with Prince George, listening to meditation recordings to get her into a relaxed frame of mind ahead of his birth.'

Expert Feature - Mother and Baby Magazine

Katharine was recently asked to join the expert panel for Mother and Baby to answer a question often posed to her:

What is hypnobirthing and how can it help me during labour?

Breathing exercises, visualisations and relaxations have been around for years, and they are helpful.  But what sets hypnobirthing apart and makes it so much more effective?  

The most important thing is the way it works on fear.  Remember the story of The Princess and the Pea?  The princess couldn't sleep because the pea under her mattress irritated her constantly.  Even when the servants added more mattresses, she couldn't sleep because the pea still irritated her.  The pea is like fear.  Every woman, however much she is looking forward to giving birth, will have seen a TV programme or film which showed a less than positive birth experience. This may be buried deep in her subconscious, but it is there.
