Hypnobirthing is a pain management technique which is used to minimise and manage the pain of labour and childbirth.
Increasingly, women are opting to have natural labour, free from drugs and other medicines. Electing for a natural childbirth can be a very powerful experience for the mother and minimises the possibility for side effects of drugs used during childbirth.
Hypnobirthing uses the principles to guide the individual into a state of relaxation which aims to help manage the pain experienced during labour. Hypnosis centers the individuals thoughts into one area of focus at the exclusion of everything else with the intention of releasing endorphins. The relief of positive hormones will help reduce and alleviate the pain of birth whilst still remaining aware, present and involved in the entire labour experience.
Hypnobirthing is a technique which is practiced in classes prior to the labour. It helps to attend classes with the partner who will be assisting you during the labour. Your partner will help you through the techniques of relaxation and visualization during labour. This technique is safe and suitable for all women.
