What is hypnobirthing?

Have you read about hypnobirthing but not really sure what it’s all about? You’ve come to the right place. Hypnobirthing is a technique to use during labour and birth where you learn relaxation and self-hypnosis tools to help you feel calmer, more relaxed and more confident. Good huh? If you’re feeling anxious about giving birth, hypnobirthing can really help you to feel more in control both leading up to the birth and during labour. Lets face it, giving birth can be a daunting prospect whether it’s your first child or your fifth! We’ve got a collection of videos from mums just like you talking about their experiences and their plans on having a hypnobirth.

Using a hypnobirthing doula

Many doulas and some midwives are trained in hypnobirthing techniques. There are private practitioners that can teach you the techniques too and our videos will show you what to expect and what to try. There are hypnobirthing books you can buy too.

Do chat to your midwife if you’d like to consider having a hypnobirth. They’re supportive and can help you with having the birth that you really want. The earlier you start using the techniques the better the outcome – but it’s never too late to get started!
