Hypnobirthing

The Hypnobirthing Australia program is uniquely designed for Australian mothers and their birth companions.  Hypnobirthing Australia classes prepare you with the knowledge, confidence and tools you need to birth calmly.  Birth can, and should be, a positive experience – one that you will always want to remember.

Hypnobirthing is as much a philosophy of birthing as it is techniques. When a mother and her birth companion are able to approach their birth without fear and with knowledge, good support, and tools for the birth – then their birthing can be a positive and empowering experience.

The ‘hypno’ part of ‘Hypnobirthing’ refers to the hypnotherapy that we use during the program to release fears and condition ourselves to release endorphins at times during our birth. With the help of hypnotherapy, the birth of your baby can be a more calm and relaxed experience. One where you are in the drivers seat, rather than feeling like a passenger. This is likely to reduce the need for interventions during your birthing.

The concept of Hypnobirthing is not new, but rather a combination of different techniques and philosophies that have existed for many, many years. Ancient wisdom is combined with modern theory – giving you the advantage in your acquisition of knowledge as you prepare for your birth.

You will learn relaxation techniques so that you can give your baby a welcome that is calm, gentle and safe.

Here are just a few things you will learn with Hypnobirthing Australia classes:

  • How fear affects women in labour and how to use hypnosis and relaxation to creative positive birth outcomes.
  • How to use hypnosis and relaxation to create a positive birth outcome.
  • Self-hypnosis techniques for labour and birth.
  • Relaxation and visualisation techniques for labour and birth.
  • Breathing techniques to use during labour and birth.
  • How to prepare your birth plan.
  • A simple explanation of what happens during labour and birth.
  • How you can breathe to minimise tearing during birth.
  • How your partner can have an active role during labour and birth.
  • Strategies to avoid an induction of labour.

After completing a Hypnobirthing Australia course you will be fully prepared, educated and confident in how you can achieve a positive, calm birth outcome. Hypnobirthing classes are usually taught over 4 consecutive weeks of 3 hours each. If you are very near to your birthing time, we can make special arrangements for individual classes tailored for you.

Studies show that women who have calm, natural births with minimal intervention experience better recovery and higher breast feeding rates.  Their babies are more alert with higher APGAR scores at birth, cry less, sleep better and have better long-term health. Evidence also shows that good antenatal preparation helps with birth and parenting, so is it any surprise that Hypnobirthing couples experience lower intervention, induction and caesarean rates in their birth, as well as substantially less pain relief administered than their peers.
