Well done Dutchess of Cambridge for choosing hypnobirthing

It is so wonderful for Kate to raise the profile for hypnobirthing. It is such a natural process to give birth so why not make the whole process natural?

I am sure you have all read the reports and know why it is a great way to have a baby but just to remind you of the benefits:

Benefits of Hypnobirthing

  • Manage any discomfort through powerful breathing techniques
  • Reduces fear, tension and discomfort and thus naturally increase discomfort threshold
  • Learn relaxation techniques that will help your body to work the way it is designed to
  • Learn how to put yourself in control of your birth - rather than blindly turning your birthing experience over to your doctor or midwife
  • Less medication and chemical anaesthesia is needed as muscles thin and open easily
  • Hypnosis shortens the first stage of delivery by approximately 3 – 4 hours for mothers delivery their babies. For subsequent deliveries, it is not unusual for them to be as quick as 60-120 minutes long
  • Learn visualization techniques that can help your body to do what it wants to do
  • Allow your mind and body to work together in harmony
  • Experience the pleasures of birth rather than the negative experiences you may have heard from others
  • Release worries and concerns you may have about birth
  • Enables mother to go into “hypnotic relaxation” if unable to sleep between feeds
  • Raises resistance to fatigue during delivery thus minimizing maternal exhaustion
  • Encourages the production of milk
  • Decreases “post natal blues” and speed recovery
  • Use the endorphin release to increase your body's natural anaesthetic – a much safer option than relying on pharmaceuticals and other drugs
