Benefits of Hypnobirthing

London Hypnobirthing with Alexa Dean

Childbirth can be an empowering experience that you will treasure for the rest of your life.

 

Benefits of Hypnobirthing for mums-to-be:

  • Release fear, tension and pain – which lead to interventions
  • Self hypnosis to induce deep relaxation
  • Massage techniques to release endorphins, your body’s natural anaesthetic
  • Visualisation exercises and affirmations to keep you grounded, serene and positive
  • Your increased knowledge and awareness put you in control
  • You are more likely to experience a natural, calm, drug free and comfortable birth – labour can be shorter and more comfortable
  • In many cases you will need no pain relief throughout the whole empowering experience
  • Reduced need of episiotomy and eliminated fatique during labour
  • HypnoBirthing can be used for induction or caesarean section
  • Postnatal recovery is much faster
  • Lower risk of postnatal depression
  • HypnoBirthing can be used at home, the birth centre or hospital

 

For fathers-to-be, hypnobirthing can offer many benefits:
– Helps them to understand the process of labour and delivery
– Gives them an essential, active role in the birth of their baby or as the birth companion
– Enables them to make informed decisions about their baby’s birth or to act as an advocate for the labouring mother
– Encourages them to bond with their baby before he or she is born
– Creates a positive mind-set to becoming parents
– Gives them the tools they need to relax and empower your partner as she gives birth

 

Hypnobirthing is good for the baby leading to:
A calm, drug-free birth which leaves the baby relaxed and alert
This calm birth can help your baby to:
– Feed well
– Sleep well
– Develop and thrive quicker
– Feel content

Hypnobirthing cannot promise you the perfect birth, no one can, but it can allow you to have a much more positive, comfortable and relaxed birth. The techniques are for all mums whether birthing at home, a birth centre or in hospital having normal or more complex births. It’s a birth preparation course in itself.

This article from Karen Baker explains how midwives can help women who have opted for this technique to have the type of birth they want.
