We start this session by getting to know you, we talk about your pregnancy, previous birth experience (if any) your hopes/fears and expectations for your forth coming labour and birth. You will discover Hypnotherapy as a profound and powerful tool to support your mindset towards a more positive and healthy way of viewing birth. We learn about what Hypnobirthing is really all about and all the amazing benefits it brings. You will learn how your birthing body works (its so amazing!) and you will learn how to then work with your birthing body and how you can positively effect the way your body flows during the birth of your baby.
In this session we teach you and your birth partner invaluable techniques and show you how you can keep your body and mind calm during birth. You will learn so many amazing practical tools and techniques that will help you stay calm, focused and in control. We also look at how we can support your pregnant body in preparation for birth, not just emotionally, but physically too. Understanding this has a huge impact on how your labour and birth unfolds on the day.
Here we look at all the birthing information you will need to know to practically support your labour and birth. We look at the medical side of birth, understanding what medical intervention is, when medical intervention is appropriate and all the risks and benefits if we need them during our birth. All the amazing information you learn will make you more knowledgeable and this enables you to see just how much choice and control you really have. You will also feel prepared in making important decisions that are safe and right for you and your baby. You will learn about the different stages of labour stages of labour and the physiological changes that happen, understanding how you can cope with every stage of labour, down to every surge/contraction you have.
This section focuses on the birth partners role. Birth partners learn all they need to know to support you on the day of your baby’s birth, we look at the process of birth all the way to when your baby is born. We do an exercise to look at different case scenarios and what techniques you could use and when, so you will feel completely prepared for any deviations your birth journey may take. We look at how you and your birth partner can start preparing before the birth, then what you can do during the birth, supporting each individual couple feel totally prepared, confident and in control! Then at the end we work on your birth plan, our focus is to look at everything you have learnt and create the ultimate birth plan bespoke you your individual needs.
As you can see our course is packed with amazing information (this is just an overview of what we cover, as there’s to much to list otherwise!) by the end of the course your mindset will completely changed regarding how positive and empowering labour and birth can really be and excited to met your baby for the first time. You will be brimming with confidence and feel reassured that you and your birth partner have the tools to cope with labour and birth in the best possible way for you.
