What is Hypno-Birthing.

Hypno-Birthing is childbirth education for a natural, calmer and more comfortable birth experience helping to prepare parents and baby for a gentle birth.

The aim of the Hypno-Birthing Program is to teach you how to relax into your body and the birthing process. When the mind is free of stress and fear that cause the body to respond with pain, then nature is free to process birth in the same well-designed manner that it does for all our other normal physiological functions.

The concept of Hypno-Birthing is not new, it is a "rebirth" of the philosophy of birthing as it existed thousands of years ago that childbirth is a natural, normal and healthy function for women, and instinctively women and babies know what to do. When a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally and spiritually she can experience birthing her baby in an easier, more comfortable and often even pain free manner.

Benefits of Hypno-Birthing:
- Eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome before, during and after birthing.
- Reduces, and often eliminates, the need for epidurals, other chemical pain relief, episiotomy and other interventions.
- Shortens the first stage of labour by several hours.
- Lessens fatigue during labour, leaving you with energy for birth.
- Your birthing companion is an integral part of the birthing, not an onlooker.
- More rapid postnatal recovery.
- Happy, well adjusted babies, resulting in better eating and sleeping routines.
- A more relaxed and enjoyable pregnancy.
- A calm, peaceful and confident birth, leaving you and your baby with a positive birthing experience.

Hypno-Birthing classes:
Hypno-Birthing classes are face-to-face classes that inspire confidence within parents and you will learn proven techniques in well thought out program of deep relaxation, visualisation, affirmations, self-hypnosis and special breathing techniques to achieve a confident, calm, peaceful birth for both you and your baby.

It is a great bonding experience for birthing partners to be involved in the experience and also a great opportunity to meet with other like-minded, positive birthing couples. Many of whom develop friendships and remain in contact after the birth.

What you will learn:
- Relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques to eliminate the fear and tension that cause long labour and unnecessary levels of pain, replacing them with confidence, calm and comfort.
- Special breathing techniques for relaxation, labour and birth.
- Visualisation to produce a shorter, more comfortable labour.
- To create and control the body’s own natural anaesthesia.
- Birthing Affirmations to build confidence and to help you look forward to giving birth.
- Massage to release endorphins.

Fear Release to overcome any concerns you may have about giving birth and parenting. To build confidence and trust in yourself and how to listen to and work with your baby and your body. How the mother’s body is designed to work in neuromuscular harmony with nature throughout labour. To practice deep relaxation during and between uterine surges. The importance of prenatal and perinatal bonding.

Each course includes:
- Marie Mongan’s HypnoBirthing® book,
- Two relaxation MP3s
- A folder for your scripts and handouts
- Refreshments and nibbles
- 12 hours of tuition
- Ongoing additional support (if required) via phone/ email.

When Should I Start?
The best time to begin your classes is between 18 – 30 weeks pregnant, however it is never too early or late to start! If you are beyond 30 weeks, you will still find the course very valuable, as long as you complete it prior to going into labour.
