FAQs

You can read about hypnobirthing on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

It is possible that hypnobirthing can make labour and birth 100% pain-free but this cannot be guaranteed as every mum is different. The more hypnobirthing practice you do during the course, however, the better it will be for your overall experience. The studies carried out by the Hypnobirthing Institute show that about 65%-70% of hypnobirthing mothers do not have any need for pain relief. 69% of the mums I researched who did my course were able to give birth without pain relief too. The studies carried out by the Hypnobirthing Institute show that only 20%-25% of women need something mild, such as gas and air. Moreover, only 5%-10% of women require medical intervention. My hypnobirthing female students who required medical intervention tell me that hypnobirthing still really helped in their case. 

Giving birth without an epidural means you can move freely, which is extremely

helpful, especially if the baby is in a difficult position. According to the studies, an epidural extends the birthing time and increases the likelihood of medical interventions. It should be kept in mind that any drugs that the mothers take will also affect the baby. Mothers also tell that drug-free birth allowed their bodies to recover faster and easier. Hypnobirthing significantly lessens the requirement for pain-relief drugs, which makes the birthing experience calm for both mother and baby. Nevertheless, it cannot be denied that there are times when medical intervention is required. In such cases, mothers can still advantage from the tools and practices learned in hypnobirthing classes in Birmingham, which help in every aspect of labour and birth.

You can start the course between the 20th and 30th week of your pregnancy. Although, even after this, we can still enrol you on a course, up to 36 weeks.

Yes. Hypnobirthing is all about acquired skills; therefore, you should do appropriate practice to achieve maximum success. The course prepares you and your birth partner and makes you feel calm and confident for your birthing day. Even after you take the course, you can contact me anytime you want, either through phone or through email.

Anybody who wants to feel relaxed at the time of birth can go for hypnobirthing classes in Birmingham. A lot of first-time mothers choose hypnobirthing to ease their worries at the time of labour and birth. Mothers who are on their second or subsequent pregnancies may opt for hypnobirthing as it increases the chances of a natural birth. Hypnobirthing practices are suitable for both home births and hospital or birth-centre births.

You should not be scared about hypnosis as it only helps you to relax. Even in this state, you are completely aware of your surroundings, and will still feel normal. Self-hypnosis can be learned and improved through appropriate practice.

 

The course is not only about learning self-hypnosis and is a complete viewpoint and attitude

to labour and childbirth. Not only this, even after the birth, the relaxation methods are also extremely effective and useful.

Hypnobirthing is not only safe but also helpful for your baby. When inside you, your baby

feels your emotions. This means when you are relaxed and calm, your baby will also enjoy that feeling. Studies show that babies born through normal delivery are more alert and are more comfortable with breastfeeding.

To attend the live online classes you will preferably require a minimum upload speed of

2Mbps.

The market is full of CDs suitable for relaxation during pregnancy, however, they are not as effective as actually doing a course when you learn the invaluable techniques that you need.
