Hypnobirth is a way of thinking, an attitude, a philosophy. It is also physical and mental preparation for birth.


Although birth can be described as a natural process, western society has medicalised the concept of birth to a point where women feel less confident in their ability to give birth.


Whilst birth intervention rates have risen, there have not been any corresponding improvements in health outcomes. Caesarean rates have increased without any significant change in intrapartum-related perinatal mortality.


Women and their birth partners are increasingly looking for coping skills and antenatal education that offers a holistic package that is more than a traditional antenatal class.


Hypnobirth offers techniques for any birth experience, including caesarean birth. Ii t encourages couples to remain relaxed and focussed whatever path their birth takes.


Hypnobirth combines:


  • Deep relaxation techniques
  • Breathing techniques for birth
  • Understanding how fear and negativity affect the mind and the body
  • Visualisation and the use of supportive language
  • Knowledge of the birth process
  • An understanding of hormones and their role in labour and birth
  • The importance of the birth environment
  • The importance of the birth partner
