What you will learn

You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing  films showing labouring mothers, awake, alert and in good humour as they experience the kind of gentle birth that is possible when you are free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome. HypnoBirthing teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and tense muscles.


The HypnoBirthing course is taught over a total of 12-13 hours. This is usually 4 x 3 hour sessions. In the relaxed and supportive class environment you will learn:


Everything you need to know to achieve a safer, easier and more comfortable birth


How pain is not a necessary accompaniment to labour no matter what you have been told


Techniques of deep relaxation to help you eliminate the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome


How your body is naturally designed to conceive, nurture and birth your baby with ease and comfort


How to draw on your body’s own natural anaesthesia


Natural ways to bring your body into labour without artificial chemical induction


Breathing techniques that actually help the birth (and it's not the panting that most people think they have to do, which can cause you to hyperventilate)


How to massively reduce the need for medication


How to reduce your risk of needing an episiotomy during birth with a stunningly simple massage technique


How to be confident and informed when dealing with the medical staff - when to question, what to ask...and when it's time to let them take charge


How to release any fears you might have about childbirth


How to bring about your own easy start of labour with simple, natural techniques, if you go beyond your "estimated due date"


Most importantly, you'll know how to relax and stay calm and in control - regardless of what's happening around you


HypnoBirthing is designed as a structured but informal class format that teaches about the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of birth. You'll learn why your body does what it does, as well as how.  Go to About HypnoBirthing for more information.


Plus you'll receive The official Hypnobirthing text book, an affirmations and relaxation CD, and numerous weekly handouts, all included in the price.
