Our Hypnobirthing program is a beautiful, modern program aimed directly at women birthing within the Australian maternity care system so the information is relevant and up to date. You will be provided with a folio of informational handouts, as well as Hypnobirthing MP3s. I will continue to provide support at the completion of the course if you need assistance sourcing additional information, services or support.
Once you have completed the course you will find that you have a huge number and variety of tools to help you achieve a safe, calm and positive pregnancy, labour, birthing and post partum. These tools include (but are not limited to!):
KNOWLEDGE – knowledge about “normal” birth and how it works; knowledge about the physiology as well as the emotional side of birth; knowledge about some of the special circumstances that can come up and ways these can be handled calmly; knowledge about your rights and options; knowledge on decision making processes; knowledge about the mind – body connection and reprogramming the subconscious.
RELAXATION techniques – releasing endorphins; relaxation breathing; affirmations; visualisations; guided relaxation (self-hypnosis) scripts; beautifully relaxing cds; facial relaxation and the knowledge of how these techniques can help you to have a calm, positive and safe birthing.
BREATHING – Breathing techniques for labour and birth – relaxation breathing; surge breathing; and birth / bearing down / “J” breathing.
Bringing the BIRTH COMPANION into it all – Your birth companion will come along to all the sessions and will be taught the skills necessary to help you to use all these tools. Your birth companion will learn how to anchor you; advocate for you; bring you into deep relaxation and assist you with decision making along the way.
