HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy as it is a technique that introduces hypnosis, a naturally induced state of relaxed concentration in which we communicate suggestions to our subconscious mind. This part of our mind influences what we think, how we feel and the choices we make. Almost anyone who chooses tocan reach deep relaxation and redirect their focus. Birthing becomes a calm, relaxed experience, without the fear and tension that cause pain. The body’s natural anaesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones that create pain, and when it’s time for baby to be born, the mama is empowered, confident and peaceful.
