Hypnobirthing is well received and encouraged by the maternity Hospitals here in Ireland as a result of the positive experiences and results - birthing is quicker, there is less need for pain management and interventions, such as forceps, and women have said they feel more in control or empowered.
It amazes me the number of couples who come to hypnobirthing because they do not want to experience the painful birth that their friends have had along with the high level of interventions experienced, resulting in aftercare and recovery taking between three and six months.
Some people use hypnobirthing alongside epidurals often reducing the amount of additional intervention that can come with medicated births.
Back in the 1920's, there was a British obstetrician Grantly Dick-Read who wrote a book called Childbirth Without Fear - The concept of painless childbirth through positive thinking!
The Hypnobirthing Online course is now available on line for couples, has been undated to support you through COVID-19 along with private one to one session, audios, so that they can also practice and mentally prepare at home in maintaining a positive frame of mind so by the time you attend the hospital for the birth of your baby, you have done everything that you can do to support both you and your baby's birth!
