FAQs

If you want to find out more about Hypnobirthing, such as what exactly it is, and how it can help and work for you, visit our webpage.

Hypnobirthing is an acquired skill, so its success also depends on the amount of practice done during the online hypnobirthing course. According to research from the Hypnobirthing Institute, no pain relief was needed by 65-70% of hypnobirthing mums. As many as 69% of the mums I trained over a 2 year period, did not need any pain relief during labour. The study from the Hypnobirthing Institute also revealed that gas and air was required by just 20-25% of hypnobirthing mums and special circumstances in which medical intervention was needed happened in just 5-10% of the cases. 

It is very important for mums to be able to stay in contact with their birthing bodies so that they can breathe their baby down easily. Drug-free births help mothers move freely, go to the bathroom, and walk around during the whole labour period. A drug-free Hypnobirthing process also reduces the labour time and reduces the chances of medical intervention, such as forceps and vacuum extraction. A drug-free birth also ensures no drugs get passed on to the baby. 

The most suitable time to start the 4-week Hypnobirthing course is between the 20th (after your 20-week pregnancy scan) and 30th week of your pregnancy. If you are later than 30 weeks, no worries, we should still be able to fit in the course for you, so please still get in touch. 

Certainly, yes. Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are acquired skills. It is learned through practise, both in class and in between our weekly course classes. The time frame of the 4-week course enables you and your birthing partner to feel absolutely prepared, relaxed and confident as you advance towards your birthing day. 

Hypnobirthing is for anyone who wants to feel fully prepared, calm and confident about birth. Often, first-time mums with no previous experience of childbirth will use this technique to calm their nerves. Mums who are on their second or subsequent babies may want an alternative and safer approach to childbirth, having had a difficult and painful first experience. Also, mums who previously had fears about having a vaginal birth may opt for hypnobirthing to have a vaginal birth following Caesarean (VBAC). Hypnobirthing techniques are useful for both home births and at hospital or birth-centre births.

There’s nothing strange about hypnosis. It’s just about entering a state of relaxation. You will always be fully aware of what’s going on around you and you can still communicate normally. You can learn and acquire the skill of self-hypnosis easily on the course. The hypnobirthing course is also much more than simply knowing about the self-hypnosis; it involves a whole positive philosophical attitude towards pregnancy and childbirth.

Every time you become relaxed and calm, your baby will also enjoy exactly the same calm sensation because your baby feels exactly what you feel. So Hypnobirthing is definitely beneficial for your baby. Your body’s natural relaxant hormones, endorphins, released when your body is in a natural calm state during childbirth, have been found in the placenta and umbilical cord. This may serve to help the baby adjust to life outside the womb as well as making the birth journey more comfortable. 

 

Research studies have shown that babies of mothers who had natural childbirth are more alert, active, show more cognition and interest in breastfeeding behaviours such as suckling and massaging the mother’s breasts.

Yes, for the live online Hypnobirthing classes you will ideally need a minimum upload speed of 2Mbps. You can also run a test on your computer to check your upload speed with this tool. http://www.speedtest.net.

You will find CDs and MP3s available in the market, and while they might be useful for relaxation during pregnancy, they cannot be nearly as effective during childbirth as actually doing a course. The course that I teach ensures that you learn important techniques for a successful birth.
