Birth has a myriad of feelings attached to it – from curiosity, wonder, excitement all the way to fear, anxiety and for some absolute terror.
Sad as it may seem, our current maternity system leans toward intervention and often requires women to be savvy about their birth place of choice. Couples are therefore empowered with evidenced-based education, knowledge and practical strategies so they can be the decision makers in their birthing journey, navigating the birth system in the preparation of a positive birth.
The skills taught in the Hypnobirthing Australia ™ course help couples understand the importance of mindset for helping the body to stay calm and relaxed over pregnancy and during birth, allowing it to release hormones that ACTUALLY makes birth efficient.
The Positive Birth Program provides a woman and her partner with comprehensive knowledge of what to expect during the birth experience
The hallmark of the program and the “hypno” part of hypnobirthing refers to the teaching of the powerful skill of self-hypnosis to keep a woman in her zone, relaxed and grounded during birth and also for releasing fears and anxieties.
Hypnobirthing Australia ™ however is SO MUCH MORE than just the self-hypnosis (although it’s an amazing tool! ).
These hypnobirthing skills ensures a woman has a plethora of tools and techniques that she can choose and use as needed, to work with the intensity of labour, stay present in birth and see the experience as functional.
Birth partners are taught how to provide effective and loving support, all which help a woman feel safe, supported and loved at a time when she is at her strongest yet most vulnerable.
