Why do people book a hypnobirthing course?

These results are from a hypnobirthing survey I set up in 2016


Hope birth goes smooth with no complications

Hope for a calm birth

Hope to have a natural drug free birth

Hope to learn techniques to make it a positive birth

Hope to remove fear of birth


Fear of pain/ tiredness/ panicking

Fear of not coping with labour and birth

Fear of lack of control

Fear of coercion eg GBS, prev PPH

Partner’s thoughts:

Want to help partner stay in calm and in control

Want to be composed and calm myself

Want to be able to help out at birth

Want to better understand what my partner needs
