“Birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear”
What is hypnobirthing?
At its core, hypnobirthing enables a woman to work with her body, which is naturally designed to give birth. It helps women and their partners release any fear or anxiety that they may have around birth, either from a previous birth experience or from what they have learnt about birth from an early age (everyone knows birth is supposed to be painful, right?), and replaces it with calm and confidence. A mother who uses hypnobirthing will often say that giving birth was the most wonderful and empowering experience of her life.
The Nurture Nest hypnobirthing course is a full antenatal programme which teaches couples about not only the physiology of birth and what is happening within our bodies during labour and birth, but also relaxation techniques to help relax the body and mind before and during labour and birth. When the body and mind are in a completely relaxed state, birth can happen more quickly and comfortably because the body isn’t fighting the natural process which is taking place.
Is Hypnobirthing right for me?
The simple answer is YES! Hypnobirthing does not guarantee a ‘perfect birth’ but it can benefit everyone and will ALWAYS make a difference. Hypnobirthing is about achieving the birth that is right for you, whether this is a home birth, a water birth, a hospital birth or a cesarean section.
At The Nurture Nest I teach the KG Hypnobirthing course which teaches all of the techniques needed to ensure a calm and serene birth. Both partners are encouraged to participate in relaxation and breathing exercises.
