What is hypnobirthing?
So, you may have thoughts of pendulums swinging and being convinced to dance around like a chicken. Well rest assured this isn't the case here!
Hypnobirthing is about getting into a deep state of relaxation, to help open your mind to ideas. To open your mind to birth being an enjoyable experience. To allow you to feel deeply relaxed, yet still totally in control.
Through hypnobirthing you learn the tools and techniques you need to achieve the birth what you want. And even if the birth doesn't go to plan as you wanted, you will be able to feel confident in yourself, your body and your baby that you can do this!
From first timers who are terrified, to second timers who need the help to overcome their fears of a previous birth, hypnobirthing can help you achieve a calm birth experience.
