About Hypnobirthing® Antenatal Classes

HypnoBirthing Antenatal classes
Affiliated with the HypnoBirthing® Institute.

HypnoBirthing teaches you the ease of using your own natural birthing instincts.
With HypnoBirthing, you will be aware, fully in control and active, but still profoundly relaxed during your labour.

What HypnoBirthing is and how it works

The HypnoBirthing Childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a
technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing.

HypnoBirthing teaches you and your partner to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant, thereby
lessening, even eliminating, discomfort and the need for medication.
When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony,
nature is free to function in the same well designed manner that it does with all other creatures.

HypnoBirthing teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work
with it, and how to free yourself of harmful emotions, like fear, that cause muscles to become unyielding,
which causes pain.

You will learn:
  • Everything you need to know to achieve a safer, easier and more comfortable birth.

  • To explode the myth that pain is a necessary accompaniment to labour.

  • What is wrong with the concept of labour as it exists with most other childbirth methods.

  • Techniques to achieve deep relaxation in order 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.

  • To create your body’s own natural relaxant, the only safe labour enhancement.

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

  • How you and your partner can create a birthing environment that is calm, serene and joyful, rather than tense and stressful.

  • Gentle birthing techniques that allow you to breathe your baby into the world without the violence of hard, physical pushing.

  • To use your natural birthing instincts to birth your baby in a way that mirrors the way that nature intended.

A couple will come and share their HypnoBirthing experience with the group.

The hypnobirthing® course was invaluable. My husband and I learnt so much about our pregnancy, our values and what kind of parents we want to be. The course gave us an understanding of what the birthing process should be. Had we not attended the hypnobirthing® classes, we would not be as confident about our baby’s birth. I feel that we are now better equipped to make certain that my baby has a safe, happy and healthy birthing experience. I am empowered as a mother and no longer feel bullied by doctors and clinical birthing practices.
