How can hypnobirthing make a positive birth experience?
The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) Better Births campaign says “Relaxation is a key factor in promoting normal physiological labour and the wellbeing of mother and child. But in order to relax in labour, it is necessary to diminish pain and anxiety. Research shows that it is not the external environment but what could be described as the ‘inner environment’ that is the principal factor in whether a woman can relax in labour. If she is able to ‘go within herself’ this can more than compensate for a lack of external privacy and for unfamiliar surroundings.” Read more here…
If you have any fear or anxiety in pregnancy, or any worries about birth, then a hypnobirthing course will be beneficial for you to work through those worries so your body can then work efficiently. It can help if you are having difficulty getting comfortable, sleeping in pregnancy, general pregnancy stress or if you are overwhelmed with negative birth stories and wondering if there is another way. (There is!) As a midwife I have seen couples who have learnt hypnobirthing enter their birth room filled with an amazing calmness and confidence, and it has helped me through my own births too!
This group Birmingham hypnobirthing course has been running for several years, and is in a friendly but professional format. Hypnosis for childbirth could be compared to athletes seeing sports psychologists, but it is also under the same umbrella as mindfulness, so if you have practised yoga or meditation then you can adapt those skills easily to your birth environment. Get in touch with any questions.
The course successfully focuses on the 5 C’s: staying in control, being calm and confident, communication and discussing choices with care providers. Read some of the testimonials to see how happy people are!
