Since baby receives the benefits of the relaxation practices and fear release, it is beneficial to begin the classes 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 your book, audio and all of the handouts to keep referring back to.
They report feeling well prepared for the birth and have really enjoyed being exposed to so many positive aspects of birthing.
What we don’t cover in HypnoBirthing classes 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 classes.
The practices we teach are time proven techniques of breathing, relaxation and visualisation. They all work perfectly to support the physiology of Mother’s birthing body.
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.
You will be amazed at how much you will have remembered.
Refresher classes are usually just one hour private sessions with Claire.
These sessions are tailored to meet your specific needs. We can go over the breathing, relaxation practices and also do a fear release if you wish.
HypnoBirthing gives parents the tools to remain calm, positive and in control.
They learn to evaluate their options and make informed decisions at every step of their pregnancy and birth experience.
This allows them to feel safe, calm and empowered about the birth, regardless of how the baby enters the world.
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 HypnoBirthing 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 classes 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 HypnoBirthing 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.
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 we give you in class to get all the information about your situation and then make an informed decision from there.
