What are HypnoBirthing ™ Antenatal Classes?
Congratulations on your pregnancy! If you are planning for your pregnancy and birth then you will be very happy that you found this page. HypnoBirthing ™ prepares you for a natural, beautiful childbirth with great memories. The HypnoBirthing™ program has been spreading across the world since it was designed by Marie Mongan in 1989 in the US. It is now taught in 45 countries and many NHS Trust hospitals in the UK and is approved by the Royal College of Midwives. Even Kate Middleton Duchess of Cambridge used HypnoBirthing™ for the birth of her son! I cover Marbella to Gibraltar, teaching group classes in Gibraltar, Estepona & Sotogrande. Don’t worry if you are a long way away in Spain or even in another country, classes can be held over Skype if necessary and if you are close to your due date we can space the classes over a smaller time period.
“Never in my life would I have believed I would have a childbirth as wonderful that.” Michella
HypnoBirthing can be your key to a comfortable, wonderful childbirth. It is a completely logical and well established method which allows your mind to work in harmony with your body, the way nature intended. It is a full antenatal course which helps you release any fears you may have and gives you all the tools and confidence you will need. Practice and preparation puts you in charge, allowing your baby to be born calm and alert, able to bond with you quickly and to settle into healthy sleeping and feeding patterns. HypnoBirthing teaches mums to call upon their natural instincts to achieve a birth that is not only beautifully designed but also free of fear, discomfort, and anxiety.
Please take a look at the Birth Stories page to read my clients’ wonderful experiences.
“When a woman is properly prepared for birthing, physically, mentally and spiritually, she can birth her baby in an easy, comfortable and often pain-free manner.” Marie Mongan – HypnoBirthing™ Founder
How does HypnoBirthing ™ work?
HypnoBirthing™ is based on the belief that a woman’s body is perfectly designed to give birth without experiencing pain. When a woman is properly prepared 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. After all, why should a woman’s uterus not function just as comfortably as other muscles in the body? The reason is FEAR. In the west a fear of childbirth has developed over centuries and when we are fearful, we are also tense and when we are tense we experience pain.
Through simple hypnosis, deep relaxation, visualisation and breathing techniques we can eliminate the fear of childbirth leaving mums to birth as nature intended.
“Our baby girl was born today. Mum & baby are doing great. All natural, no drugs and fast. This Hypno stuff definitely works..” Pete
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is simply deep relaxation, like the dreamlike state just before you fall asleep or wake up. It is a natural, pleasant state that we all experience just like when we daydream, or are totally engrossed in a book, or when we drive somewhere without remembering some of the journey. This deeply relaxed state is profoundly therapeutic for the mind and body and allows positive changes to be made.
“When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change.” Marie F. Mongan
