If a mother is well-prepared both physically and mentally before the birth of her child, it is likely that her birthing experience will be easier, more comfortable, gentler and often less painful. One way of giving birth and remaining less stressed is to use hypnobirthing techniques.
Hypnobirthing is a philosophy and method in obstetric care which is based on the belief that all children should come into this world in a calm and cheerful environment. This approach includes a thorough preparatory programme that is much needed by the future parents, teaching them relaxation, breathing, visualising, affirmation and massage techniques as well as basic knowledge about pregnancy and childbirth.
The main objective of the course is to reduce fear and tension, which in turn allows the body to go through a natural birthing process. The class teaches methods that enable you to reach a deep level of relaxation whilst maintaining focus and a positive attitude throughout childbirth.
