FAQs

You can read all about the process of hypnobirthing and how it can benefit you by accessing the ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

The effects of hypnobirthing are as good as the amount of practice you put into it, like any skill. According to research conducted by the Hypnobirthing Institute, an estimated 65%-70% of mums who give birth through the Hypnobirthing process do not require any pain-relieving medication. 69% of the women that I taught over a 2 year period did not need any other form of pain relief. Moreover, according to the Hypnobirhting Institute, 20%-25% only tend to require very mild forms of pain relief such as gas and air whereas the remaining 5%-10% fall under the category of special, unforeseen circumstances where medical intervention becomes a necessity. These ‘special case’ mums do claim, however, that Hypnobirthing methods gave them a lot of strength and positivity throughout the process. Check out my blog and read the stories of hypnobirthing mums for yourself.

Mums who undergo an epidural face a lot of difficulty in moving around, going to the bathroom, and changing positions throughout labour, which is pivotal if the baby is in a difficult position for birth. In fact, research suggests that an epidural increases the birthing time and often leads to external interventions such as a forceps delivery or vacuum extraction. This is why hypnobirthing methods are now so commonly used, to provide mums with the best chances of a natural birth.

It’s best if you start the 4-week online hypnobirthing classes somewhere between your 20-week scan and your 30th pregnancy week. You can still get in touch if your pregnancy is at a later stage.

One cannot stress enough when it comes to hypnobirthing techniques that practice makes perfect. The more you train yourself at home, the better-skilled you’ll be to handle all kinds of situations that may arise during childbirth. Our four-week online Hypnobirthing Cardiff courses ensure that both you and your companion are fully prepared and confident. 

The Hypnobirthing process is ideal for increasing the chances of natural delivery. Anyone can learn the methods and practice techniques that are offered throughout the entirety of this course, especially first-time mums. If you do not have previous birthing experience, then hypnobirthing will prove substantially helpful for instilling confidence and eradicating all your fears regarding labour. Alternatively, if you’re a second or third time mother looking for a better experience, hypnobirthing will ensure a much more enjoyable birth.

Firstly, let’s address the fact that there is nothing sketchy about hypnosis. Consider it as a fancy term for entering into a more relaxed state. You won’t be under any sort of trance, you’ll be fully aware at all times. You’ll have a lot of time to learn and practice self-hypnosis until you feel the effects. It is easy to learn. Moreover, there is a lot more to this course than just learning self-hypnosis. You’ll be exposed to a whole new philosophy and a reformed approach regarding childbirth. 

Yes, of course. Hypnobirthing techniques allow you to feel calm and relaxed during your birth, minimising stress. Your body releases endorphins – natural relaxing chemicals – when you’re in a calm state. These have been found in the placenta and the umbilical cord during childbirth. So, whatever you feel, the baby feels as well. Studies show that babies born from a natural childbirth are much more alert and engage in positive breastfeeding behaviours including sucking and massaging the mum’s breasts.

Learning something by merely watching is never as effective as doing an actual interactive course. You’ll notice that there are a lot of CDs and MP3s on the market but they would leave you with more questions than answers. My courses offer valuable, experience-based insight into the whole birthing process and the techniques that you need.
