We are indoctrinated from a very young age that giving birth is a distressing and painful experience that ALL women will have to go through it! if they want kids and yes, it may well be said, in order to put teenagers off having sex at a young age!
However, by the time young girls mature into adults, the seeds of childbirth have been well planted and the damage is done! They have been filled with the beliefs that pregnancy, birth and even parenting can be painful, difficult and challenging!
Our culture, books,media and stories have programmed us form a very early age that childbirth is a negative experience instead of it being a empowering experience of life!
We have NINE MONTHS not just for pregnancy! but also to prepare our minds and bodies for an empowering birth experience!
Hypnobirthing is antenatal training from the inside out!! That is simple, logical and profound. It is for both parents and teaches you how your body works along with relaxation techniques, self - hypnosis and breathing exercises!
This involves training the mind to believe that a woman's body has the ability to bring a baby into the world in a calm and gentle manner without the need for any pain relief or medical interventions. A lot of preparation goes into conditioning the body and mind through mental rehearsal over the weeks and months in the lead up to the big day!
Hypnobirthing does not mask pain, it reduces it down considerably and puts you in control of your body in a way that prepares you to accept and embrace whatever childbirth brings in a confident and empowered manner.
The mother is always aware of what is happening and is confident in her body's ability to handle the birth, and empowered to the extent of feeling very much in control from a positive perspective.
Softer vocabulary is also used in hypnobirthing from CONTRACTIONS to Surges and Waves of Energy and from PUSHING to Breathing your baby down through you.
Hypnobirthing online classes will guide and coach you and your birth partner on self-empowering techniques from; affirmations to visualisations, reading positive birth stories shared by others who have used hypnobirthing techniques.
