‘The conscious mind can win the battle but the unconscious mind always wins the war.’ Carl Jung
Hypnobirthing is a programme of antenatal education that enables us to let go of negative thoughts, cultural influences and false assumptions that get in the way of allowing our bodies to work the way they are designed to work in childbirth. In hypnobirthing we work with the mother and her partner to eliminate any fears or apprehension they may have around childbirth which can hinder the natural birthing process.
Using self-hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming and deep relaxation techniques, we create a calm state of mind and body, allowing oxytocin and endorphins to flow. Oxytocin helps the muscles of the cervix work to their optimum efficiency, whilst endorphins are the body’s natural pain relieving hormones, said to be 200 times more powerful than morphine!
