FAQs

Hypnobirthing is a technique which is used to teach pregnant women to give birth in a relaxed way. Self-hypnosis is a technique that is widely used in Online Hypnobirthing Classes. To learn more, visit ‘What is Hypnobirthing?’ on the website.

Hypnobirthing is a learned skill and its success is totally dependent on the amount of practise that has been carried out during the course. According to the Hypnobirthing Institute, around 65%-70% of hypnobirthing mothers do not require any type of pain relief. 20%-25% of hypnobirthing mothers need something light relief, such as air and gas and the remaining 5%-10% mostly have special circumstances in which medical intervention is necessary. 

 

Those hypnobirthing mothers who have faced special circumstances report that hypnobirthing techniques still helped them even if they had to opt for a caesarean. The objective of hypnobirthing is to teach you a positive birth experience so that you can stay calm and relaxed no matter what circumstances you experience. 

It is a fact that those mothers who give birth without an epidural can walk easily, they can go to the bathroom on their own and even change positions throughout labour. This is very important in those situations when the baby is in a challenging position for birth. Mothers, while staying connected to their birthing bodies, can breathe their baby down more easily and usually faster. 

 

Studies conclude that an epidural extends the birthing time and raises the chances of other medical treatment such as vacuum extraction. Parents should also know that any type of drug a mother takes also affects her baby. Mothers report that their recovery was much faster after a drug-free childbirth. Hypnobirthing provides the best opportunity for a drug-free birth as it reduces the need of pain relief. A drug-free birth is the ideal scenario for both mother and baby.

You should start your course between the 20th and 30th week of your pregnancy as it is the ideal time to learn about hypnobirthing. If you are later than this, for instance, up to the 36th week of your pregnancy, you can still be fitted into the course, so please do get in touch.

Yes. Deep relaxation and self-hypnosis are acquired skills which need enough practice to work effectively. These techniques should be practised during and after the 4-week course. The time period of 4 weeks is sufficient for you and your birth companion to prepare completely and feel relaxed while approaching your birthing day.

Hypnobirthing is not limited to any specific type of person. It is effective for everyone who intends to feel confident about birthing. First-time mothers without any previous experience of childbirth find it helpful to fully prepare for birth. Those who are pregnant with their second or subsequent child may wish to opt for a different approach to childbirth because of a previous difficult experience. In the same way, mothers who had a caesarean and wish for a vaginal birth, find hypnobirthing very helpful in releasing fear and anxieties about vaginal birth. Hypnobirthing techniques are effective for both home births and hospital or birth centre births.

Hypnosis is about experiencing a state of relaxation during which you are still aware of things happening around you. Self-hypnosis is the basic technique of hypnobirthing which is simple to learn and can be improved throughout the course. During the hypnobirthing course you will learn much more about self-hypnosis as it is a philosophy to pregnancy and childbirth. With the help of relaxation techniques, you will learn how to stay calm and stress free even after childbirth.

Hypnobirthing is very beneficial for your baby as well. Your baby can sense how you feel, so whenever you feel calm and relaxed your baby will get those same feelings, too. Endorphins are released when your body is in a calm state during childbirth. This will help the baby to adjust to the outside world and it will make the process of birth easier. Research has proven that babies of mothers having natural childbirth are more alert and take more interest in different behaviours, for instance, breast feeding.

You need an ideal speed of the internet to attend the online classes. To check the speed of your internet, use the following link: http://www.speedtest.net

You can get a CD from the market which might be helpful during the pregnancy but it may not prove to be effective during the childbirth. You are better off learning the practical techniques from an instructor during a live interactive class, for a successful birth.
