We care about you!
Huge congratulations to you on your pregnancy!
Let’s dispel the myths of what hypnobirthing is…maybe you haven't heard too much about it, so let's find out what it's all about...
What is a hypnobirth?
Hypnobirthing is a calm, gentle and comfortable birthing process, where mothers connect to the inherent wisdom of their bodies through deep, relaxation techniques.
In hypnobirthing, affirmations are used to focus the mind to prepare for a positive birth experience.
How long has hypnobirthing been around?
Probably forever! Though modern teaching is linked to the work of British obstetrician Grant Dick-Read, the modern method is based on Marie Mongan’s conclusions and teachings. Many other people have since created their own version, though fundamentally, the principles and teachings are the same.
What will hypnobirthing feel like?
Hypnobirthing doesn’t mean you’ll be in an altered state - you will always be aware of what is happening around you, but you will be doing it from a place of control and tranquillity.
Why is Romford Hypnobirthing different to the others?
Romford Hypnobirthing’s course is a complete antenatal and birth education programme that teaches you simple, but specific, self-hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques for a better, and often easier, birth.
With hypnobirthing, you’ll discover that pain does not have to be a part of your labour. The course will teach you:
We don’t just teach you the course and then leave you to it. We personally care about each and every mum and her baby, so we will be in touch with you right up until the birth of your baby - answering any questions that you may have, by phone or email, ensuring that you are in the right head-space on your big day.
Also all mums who have been on our hypnobirthing course only pay half-price for the Relaxation Sessions that take place each Friday.
Is hypnobirthing just for the mums?
Absolutely not, whoever your birth partner is, whether it is the dad, a family member or a friend, they should join you for your hypnobirthing course – otherwise how can they effectively help you if they do not understand your preparation and preferences for labour and birth? (If you have more than one birth partner, they are welcome to the course too, at no extra cost).
Is it only for first-time mums?
Definitely not! Mums who have given birth before can definitely benefit from hypnobirthing and use the techniques to have the birth they want for themselves and their baby, especially if maybe the previous birth didn't quite go to plan. Even mothers who have previously had a Caesarean section, and have been given the 'all-clear' to have a vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC), will find hypnobirthing a completely different experience.
Will hypnobirthing help me if I need to have an induction or Caesarean birth?
Yes! Sometimes, medical intervention is needed for the safety of the mum and her baby. Hypnobirthing techniques will help you stay in a calm and positive state of mind and help you be better prepared for any changes on the day. Hypnobirthing mums say that the techniques really helped - even if they had to be induced, have an assisted birth or ended up with a C-section.
In fact, the principles of hypnobirthing will no doubt help you in other experiences outside of labour.
When should you start the hypnobirthing course?
We recommend that anytime from 20 weeks of pregnancy is a good time to do the course. This allows you the time to complete the course (evening classes are over a one month period) as well as allow you time to practice the relaxation and breathing techniques, so that it is second nature to you.(Remember how clunky and awkward those first few driving lessons were. But after a while, when and how you needed to change gears, or when to hit the brakes, became instinctive – the same theory applies to hypnobirthing).
Hypnobirthing will give you and your birth partner the birth that is right for you and your baby.
