The Hypnobirthing Australia™ course is a childbirth education program which teaches women and their birth partners techniques and a mindset that supports them to have a positive birth experience. The program incorporates teachings from many respected pregnancy and birth experts, along with hypnotherapy techniques to provide a comprehensive and up to date childbirth education program. As a midwife I have worked with many women during their birth, and have seen firsthand the impact that a positive birth experience can have on women and their families. Hypnobirthing can help you to have an amazing birth experience, whatever turn your birth takes!
Our program is designed for both natural and caesarean birth, which is why I believe it can help ANY couple preparing for the birth of their baby. We promote POSITIVE birth and Hypnobirthing Australia™ couples are well prepared for whatever turns their birth may take. Chances are, their birth will be natural, but all throughout the course is it emphasised that the techniques will serve you well in any scenario.
Each couple receives a parent resource folio, ebook and hypnobirthing relaxation mp3 downloads that can be used during pregnancy and birth. The parent folio is frequently referred to within the course, and provides many practical resources that can be used during birth.
The hypnosis part of hypnobirthing uses hypnotherapy techniques to let go of any fears that we may have about birth, and is also used to condition ourselves to release endorphins during labour (our natural painkillers!). These techniques also allow women to reach a deep state of relaxation, which allows their body to labour as its designed to without any resistance, and for their natural endorphins to be released.
During your hypnobirth you will not be in a trance or asleep. You may look like you are asleep but you will actually be in a heightened state of awareness – awake, but incredibly relaxed. The Hypnobirthing Australia™ program uses self hypnosis techniques, and you are always completely in control and able to come out of hypnosis at any time if required.
Although hypnobirthing may sound a little ‘hippy’, it really is an incredibly down to earth program that can benefit women from all walks of life. Natural birth is of course not a new concept, but the Hypnobirthing Australia™ course combines practical techniques and modern theories in order to help support you to have a relaxed, empowering birth. This course provides you with the knowledge, tools and support to calmly meet whatever turn your birthing takes! Remember that not every Hypnobirthing course is the same - I chose to train with Hypnobirthing Australia™ because I believe that it is the best course around to give you current, research based information and techniques, as well as being designed by an Australian for Australian parents!
The Hypnobirthing Australia™ course is perfect for you if...
- You want to have a natural, low-intervention birth but don't really know how you're going to achieve this.
- You are worried about the pain and how you will manage.
- You've been struggling with fear and anxiety about birth, and you don't know how to manage these feelings.
- You're feeling overwhelmed at all the information that is out there, and want someone you can trust to help you learn exactly what you need to know.
- You want more from your Antenatal Classes than just the standard hospital program.
- You want your partner to feel included, and for them to know how to best support youduring your labour and birth.
Most of all, you want to feel fully prepared for your labour and birth - to have a mindset and tools that you know will actually work and help you to achieve a calm, positive and empowering birth!
