Hypnobirthing: The 7 Key Benefits To Using Hypnosis For Natural Childbirth

For moms who are looking to enjoy their labour, and have a relaxed, natural, pain-free childbirth, Hypnobirthing is becoming a popular natural birth alternative.

Yes ... Pain-free natural childbirth is possible. Hypnobirthing prepares moms for a beautiful, calm and relaxed birth.

But what exactly is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is a method used by moms-to-be to prepare themselves for the upcoming birth of their baby. Through hypnosis sessions, ladies are able to eliminate all the fear and expectations of pain commonly associated with giving birth, and prepare themselves to be comfortable, deeply relaxed and excited as their baby enters the world.

What are the benefits to having a Hypnobirth?
The key principal to Hypnobirthing is that it programs moms to be calm and relaxed. When mom is relaxed, her muscles are relaxed. This allows baby to flow much quicker and easier through the birth canal. This offers many benefits, such as:

  • Considerably shorter labour and birthing times. 
  • Significantly fewer surgical births
  • Higher number of comfortable, natural births with no technical assistance
  • Highly energized moms in good spirits following births that are calm and gentle
Benefit for Dad / partner:
  • Hypnobirthing engages dad (or partner) too! They become a central part of the birthing process, helping mom to stay calm and focused. 

Benefits for baby:Many benefits have also been found for babies born using Hypnobirthing. Because they are birthed much more gently and calmly, hypnobirthed babies tend to:
  • Be calmer as they experience less trauma
  • Feed & sleep better
  • Usually even have higher Agpar scores.
How to have a Hypnobirth:
Preparing for a hypnobirth can be done either in a class setting, one-on-one with a certified hypnotherapist, or even with a home study course. Home study courses are great as they allow moms (and dad / partner) to prepare for the birth at their own pace, right from the comfort of their own home. Also ... these courses are extremely affordable and very effective.
