Hypnobirthing is a childbirth education program that teaches women and their partners techniques to achieve a calm and relaxed birth. Hypnobirthing uses a combination of relaxation, visualization, and breathing techniques to help women manage pain and anxiety during labour.
Hypnobirthing emphasises the natural physiological process of childbirth and aims to empower women to trust in their bodies’ ability to give birth. By using hypnobirthing techniques, women can reduce the need for medical interventions such as epidurals and cesarean sections, leading to a more positive birth experience.
Hypnobirthing classes typically cover topics such as the stages of labour, positions for birth, and the role of the partner during childbirth. Participants learn how to enter a state of deep relaxation, release fear and tension, and focus on positive affirmations and visualisations during labour.
