Hypnobirthing for a Calm, Gentle & Empowering Birth
At Hypnobirth Sydney we teach the Hypnobirthing Australia™ program, uniquely designed for Australian mothers and their birth partners. Our hypnobirthing classes prepare you with the knowledge, confidence and tools you need to birth calmly. Birth can, and should be, a positive experience – one that you will never want to forget!
What is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing creates a calm and positive mindset for pregnancy and birth, so that you can birth free from fear and pain. Hypnobirthing uses techniques which include breathing, deep relaxation, visualisations and positive affirmations. These techniques help to reduce your levels of stress,anxiety and fear, and so promote the release of the wonder hormones, "endorphins" and "oxytocin", allowing your body to give birth efficiently and comfortably the way that it is designed to do.
Hypnobirthing gives you the tools you need to release any fear and tension that you may be holding on to that could impact on your having the type of birth that you desire.
How Does Hypnobirthing Work
When we have fear during birth we create tension in our body. This tension causes our muscles to tighten and hold everything in, so the body can’t relax into birthing as it is designed to do. Hypnobirthing will teach you to release any fear so you can trust your body. You and your birth partner will learn a range of strategies and techniques to maintain your positive and calm mindset during birth, such as relaxation and meditation, using light touch massage to release endorphins, using music and aromatherapy, using visualisations and positive affirmations.
Mothers are given the information they need to understand how their body is working during labour. They learn the choices that are available to them, so that they are equipped to inform their doctors & midwives of the type of birth they want, and as a result a mother can often experience a more comfortable, drug free, calm and gentle birth.
Are Partners Involved?
Hypnobirthing acknowledges the importance of the birth partner and gives them a specific role to play which, as a result, can bring couples closer together as they work in unity as a team to birth their baby.
Our Hypnobirthing classes prepares couples for what they need to know to help bring their baby into the world, and helps them to connect at a deeper level with their baby.
