The HypnoBirthingÂ® Childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving natural delivery in a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free manner. By inducing a state of total relaxation, the body is able to assist, rather than resist, the childbirth process. By contrast, traditional childbirth practices can allow physiological responses to fear, stress and pain to build in a cycle that causes more of the same.
HypnoBirthing encourages the body to relax the muscles surrounding the birth path, allowing the baby a much easier and trauma-free exit.
This method teaches participants to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust their body and work with it, as well as how to clear harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles. This greatly enhances the likelihood of achieving a totally natural delivery, and avoiding excessive medical intervention. The need for surgical procedures and medical sedation is minimized or eliminated. The mother’s body experiences less ripping, tearing, and general trauma, resulting in faster recovery.
By eliminating trauma and focusing on positive visualization, HypnoBirthing permits mother and baby to share a profound, joyful experience as nature intended it. Partners are encouraged to participate and join in the bonding.
Hypnotic induction is used to enhance relaxation, and participants learn specific techniques to induce on their own. The mind is reprogrammed to expect an enjoyable, even pleasurable experience. The result is a happier mom and baby, who are both better equipped to begin their adventure together.
