What is Hypnobirthing?

Have a positive, calm and confident birth. Learn about the benefits for you, baby and birth partner.

Mindful Hypnobirthing is a way of thinking, an attitude, a philosophy. It is also a physical and mental preparation for birth. It combines hypnosis techniques and mindfulness practice to eliminate fear about birth and instead replace it with positivity, knowledge and empowerment.

Using self-hypnosis and mindfulness techniques together will encourage your body to respond well during labour enabling you to create confident, calm and positive thoughts about the birth, and allowing your body to relax and do what it is designed to do.

Mindful Hypnobirthing differs from basic relaxation techniques as it helps change your responses to birth at an unconscious level.

Hypnosis and mindfulness are the perfect combination for a positive birth experience. Your hypnosis preparation will help you process unconscious fears about birth, allowing your body to relax and release endorphins, it’s own natural painkillers. Your mindfulness practice will help you be present in each moment during labour, fully connected to the rhythm of your body and your baby, surrendering to the process of birth and trusting your natural ability.

Mums who have used this [Mindful Hypnobirthing] technique always comment on how they looked forward to the birth of their baby, feeling calmly excited rather than apprehensive or anxious.
— Sophie Fletcher, author Mindful Hypnobirthing
