World Hypnobirthing is a day where we all come together to celebrate this life changing education.
Hypnobirthing is a childbirth education method that focuses on self-hypnosis, relaxation techniques, and positive affirmations to help women and birthing people have a calm and natural birth experience.
The goal of hypnobirthing is to empower parents to trust in their body's ability to give birth and to reduce fear and anxiety during pregnancy and whilst birthing.
A few benefits of hypnobirthing include:
Reduced fear and anxiety: Hypnobirthing helps parents to release their fears and negative thoughts about childbirth, which can lead to a more relaxed and positive birth experience.
Many parents report less pain and discomfort: The relaxation techniques used in hypnobirthing can help to reduce the perception of pain whilst birthing, making the experience more comfortable.
Fewer medical interventions: Hypnobirthing can help to reduce the need for medical interventions such as pain medication, episiotomy, and caesarean births.
Shorter labours : Those who use hypnobirthing techniques can have shorter labours on average compared to those who don't.
Improved outcomes for mother and baby: Hypnobirthing has been associated with better outcomes for both mother and baby, including fewer special circumstances and a faster recovery time.
Hypnobirthing provides families with helpful tools to achieve a more positive, relaxed, and empowered birth experience.
