HOW THIS COURSE CAN HELP YOU

During a Empowered Birthing course, the woman and her birthing partner are taught hypnobirthing techniques of deep relaxation, breathing techniques, positive affirmations and visualization which are practiced for the remainder of pregnancy. This also allows the woman to bond with her baby and connect with her body.

This is taught along with usual antenatal education, resulting in a comprehensive course which also empowers the woman and her birthing partner with skills to help navigate decision making during both pregnancy and labour. When the well informed hypnobirthing woman goes into labour she and her birthing partner are more prepared to achieve an empowered birth.

 

WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING?

Hypnobirthing is grounded in the philosophy that childbirth is a normal part of life. When a woman understands the physiology behind labour and birth, and the importance of relaxation and trusting her birthing body and utilises hypnobirthing techniques, she can birth in a more empowered way. A hypnobirthing woman is aware of everything that is going on around her (like meditation) yet is calm, relaxed and in tune with her body.
