You will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles work in perfect harmony–as they were designed to–when your body is sufficiently relaxed and you trust birth. You will learn how to achieve this kind of relaxation, free of the resistance that fear creates, and you will learn to use your natural birthing instincts for a calm, serene and comfortable birth.
When you have your baby with HypnoBirthing®, you will not be in a trance or a sleep. What you will experience is similar to the daydreaming, or focusing, that occurs when you are engrossed in a book or a movie or staring into a fire.
You will be conversant and in good spirits–totally relaxed, but fully in control. Awake throughout, you will be aware of your body’s waves and your baby’s progress; but because you will have trained yourself to reach complete relaxation, you will be able to determine the degree and the manner in which you will feel the waves. You will experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear that prevents the muscles of your body from functioning as nature intended them to. In this calm state, your body’s natural relaxant, endorphins, replaces the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.
The overall effect of practicing HypnoBirthing techniques is that you are better able to appreciate the benefits of calm, gentle birthing, making the experience a joyful one for your entire family — benefits that can last a lifetime!
Contemporary women in our culture hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth, too often associating it with excruciating pain, thereby causing their bodies to become unable to perform what should be a normal physiological function. HypnoBirthing® is a unique method of relaxed, natural childbirth education enhanced by self‑hypnosis and guided imagery techniques that allow you to use your natural abilities to bring about safer, easier, and more comfortable birthing.
HypnoBirthing® techniques are tools to release all prior programming about birth and be free of limiting thoughts and emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and resistant muscles. When giving birth with HypnoBirthing®, you will not be in a trance or asleep but instead in a state of deep relaxation—awake, aware, and fully in control.
In a series of confidence-building classes, you will learn what makes labor hurt; but more importantly, you learn the logic behind why labor doesn’t have to hurt and what you can do about it. You will study the physical and chemical changes that occur over a period of time when fear and anxiety are allowed to accumulate. This awareness of the fight, flight, or freeze response helps you to choose calm. The practice of HypnoBirthing techniques in class is designed to help you see the relationship between fear and the possibility of pain. These exercises become life skills that also shore up your parenting skills. Armed with this knowledge, the pattern of calming techniques and steps that you will learn to help you to create endorphins and avoid the effect of the negative hormones that cause your body to constrict, rather than open.
The class series includes a HypnoBirthing techniques textbook, relaxation CD, and everything you need to know to reconnect with your birthing instincts and create an amazing birthing experience. I have now included a bonus class HypnoMothering just for the moms -- dads can plan to gather for final meeting as well!
