Birth choices in Aylesbury

HypnoBirthing often gives couples the confidence to opt for a home birth, attracted by the privacy and the peaceful environment, which helps make birthing easier. If you prefer to give birth at hospital, or are advised to for medical reasons, you don’t have far to travel to get to Stoke Mandeville Hospital. The midwifery-led Aylesbury Birth Centre attached to the hospital is a popular choice for women without complications and offers an environment more conducive for natural childbirth. The other choice is the Wycombe Birth Centre, a stand-alone midwifery-led unit, located on the Wycombe Hospital site in High Wycombe. The centre is not as busy as Stoke Mandeville Hospital and offers a more homely and quieter environment. Your birth partner can also stay overnight following the birth, and visiting is not restricted like at hospital.

You can visit the Stoke Mandeville hospital and the Wycombe birth centre websites for more information and to book a tour, by clicking on the links below:

FAQs

To find out more, please visit the ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ tab on our website.

The skills you learn in the hypnobirthing class help you manage pain during labour and birth. Although a completely pain-free birth cannot be guaranteed, it is possible. According to the Hypnobirthing Institute, 70% of hypnobirthing women did not require any other form of pain relief. You can read more about the experiences of other mums who have taken the course on my blog.

Whatever you ingest in your body directly affects your unborn child. Using an epidural not only restricts your movement but also limits you from changing positions because you have to be monitored in these circumstances. Research shows that your baby will be more alert and will find feeding easier if you have a drug free birth.

The 4-week course is ideal for women between their 20th and 30th weeks of pregnancy. You can still take hypnobirthing classes at Aylesbury, even after your 30th week. Please get in touch for more details.

You will learn the techniques and skills taught in our online hypnobirthing classes. With the 4-week course, you and your partner have enough time to practise and master them effectively. If you need any further assistance after the course, please get in touch with me via phone or email.

Regardless of whether it is your first or fifth pregnancy, hypnobirthing is for you. The course aims to prepare you for a smoother and more pleasurable birthing experience.

Hypnosis is more of being in a state of deep relaxation. It is not as how it appears in the movies or television. You are still in full control and can respond to anything happening around you.

When in a state of deep relaxation, your brain releases endorphins. The hormone has a calming effect on the body, and your baby feels the same. The hormone helps your baby feel more comfortable during birth. Research states that babies born naturally exhibit more interest in breastfeeding behaviours and are more alert.
