It’s Never too Early to Start HypnoBirthing! (our workshops are available from 24 weeks pregnant)
If you’ve discovered HypnoBirthing then you could be at any stage of your pregnancy.
Many future parents arrive at a HypnoBirthing workshop having consumed a very large amount of information on the internet and with their heads quite possibly buzzing with everything they’re trying to take in. Add to that the fact that you’re far more likely to find articles on what can go wrong with a pregnancy than anything else and this can create a level of anxiety. HypnoBirthing aims to combat this, and the positive effects can be felt immediately, meaning there’s no wrong time to start.
What is hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing has a focus on natural birth.
Hypnotherapy harnesses the power of positive language, with methods designed to induce deep relaxation. The methods include breathing techniques, visualisation, and positive thinking, which aims to lower anxiety, stress, fatigue and fear – all of this helps lessen pain.
Expectant mothers are particularly interested in how to manage the birthing experience itself, which is something that HypnoBirthing can offer. However, the approaches we use work at their best when practised until they becomes second nature. This is why we advise that it’s never too early to take up HypnoBirthing. Controlling stress and promoting confidence in your body is something that takes time to develop, both for you and your partner. The positive results for the approaches aren’t just restricted to the birthing experience itself but can help make the entirety of the pregnancy a far more calm experience. Focusing on positives and trusting in your body to know what it’s doing is especially relevant for today’s expectant mothers who often experience information overload.
