Hypnotically prepared births have shorter stage 1 labours, less medication and more spontaneous deliveries. Hypnosis has been proven to significantly reduce pain and fatigue during labour and women have quicker postnatal recovery.(1) Hypno-birthing teaches you to use the power of the breath to control fear and pain. It teaches deep connection with your body and your baby. It encourages further release of your relaxin hormone.
Learning these Endorphin triggers enhances flexibility and creates an easier experience. Hypno-birthing gives you the ability to have a powerful connection with your baby – and to use this connection technique – visualising your baby’s journey through the delivery. Your body automatically forms your baby from the moment of conception for you, from you. Naturally it has the ability to automatically open, relax and deliver your baby safely and smoothly into your arms.
