- Live tuition for you and your birth companion
- Four HypnoBirthing relaxation audio tracks
- Lots of handouts in a folder to support guide your practice.
- Continued support via phone or email with Claire until your birthing day and beyond.
Since baby receives the benefits of the relaxation practices and fear release, it is beneficial to do the workshop as early as possible. This also gives you lots of time to practice the techniques you will learn in class.
There is no risk of forgetting the techniques because you will have the audio tracks and all of the handouts to keep referring back to.
What we don’t cover is the more medical side of birthing, so if you want to learn about that you might like to also attend an antenatal course.
You will be given lots of resources to pass on the information to them if they can’t make the workshop.
We are preparing the mind and body for success in the same way that sports greats prepare for their big event.
We thought it might be quiet spiritual and come on a bit strong, but we were pleasantly surprised. Especially Tom.
It was relaxing and not intense in any way. And an incredibly informative and positive experience.Katy Powell, First time Mum.
Through the workshop you will receive the tools to remain calm, positive and in control, regardless of how your baby enters the world.
You will learn how to to evaluate your options and make informed decisions at every step of your pregnancy and birth experience, allowing you to remain empowered and reduce the risk of regrets.
Prepare for a no-fault birth.. If you confidently participate in all the decisions made during your labor and delivery – even those that were not in your birth plan – you are likely to look upon your birth with no blame and no regrets.William and Martha Sears, The Birth Book
The techniques work to bring you into a state of calm and relaxation making your birthing unfold in an easier manner even when medical support is required.
In workshop you will learn the difference between necessary and unnecessary medical intervention which will allow you to feel well prepared to make informed decisions.
In class we discuss the physiological reason for pain in birth. With this understanding, mothers, with the support of their birth companions, are able to work more effectively with their birthing bodies instead of fighting against the natural process.
Many mothers report that applying the techniques enabled them to have wonderful rewarding experiences that were free of the intense pain that is often associated with birth.
You can read the wonderful birth stories of other parents who have been through Auckland HypnoBirthing classes here.
In the workshop you will receive a detailed birth preferences template to fill it out and take it to an upcoming visit.
The Birth Preferences enable you to have a very clear conversation about exactly what you are hoping to achieve on your birthing day. This sets the groundwork for a wonderfully detailed conversation with them and you will have the opportunity to hear how they practice in all the areas that are covered.
Of course we can never guarantee that things will go exactly to plan, but after you have created this framework, if things do need to deviate from there, you can ask the questions, that you will receive in class, to get all the information about your situation and then make an informed decision from there.
