What is HypnoBirthing?
For most of their lives, women have been
inundated with the negative stories of other
women’s birth experiences. Everyone, from
their mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends,
and even strangers, wants to tell them the
horrors of giving birth. They have been
conditioned to believe that excruciating pain
is associated with birth; and because of this,
women today hold an unprecedented fear of
giving birth. This extreme fear causes their
bodies to become tense, and that tension
often prevents them from easily performing
the normal, physiological function of birth.
The result?—exactly what they feared most-
long, painful, disappointing births.
People who are drawn to Hypnobirthing
have long been searching for a way that
helps women give birth as calmly, safely,
and gently as possible. Until Hypnobirthing
was founded, it seemed almost unattainable.
Through a very simple program of self hypnosis
and education, women learn to
release emotions tied to fear-based stories
and misinformation, and they are helped to
see birth as normal. They learn to trust that
their bodies know how to bring their babies
into the world in the calm and gentle way
that nature intended.
Advantages of Hypnobirthing
eliminate the fear that causes tension
and, thus, pain
need for chemical painkillers and drugs
achieve a gentle, calm birth for
themselves and their baby
role in the birthing
a woman to gently breathe her baby
into the world without the violence of
hard, physical pushing.
