The Big “C”

Lots of people are wanting to find out more about HypnoBirthing.©. Great News!. Not mainstream yet, but, hey, back in the day,water births were not mainstream either.It is only a matter of time. I do realise that having a baby, especially a first baby will often throw the budget into disarray.

Although, when I think about MY BABIES, I seem to recall that preparing for their arrival was actually the cheapest part of having children. Easy in hindsight. Some people ask me if reading the HypnoBirthing book will prepare their mind. For some, it may suffice. However, the book is just the tip of the iceberg. So much more than the written word. Being with like minded couples helps. The skill and training of the hypnobirthing practitioner is important too. Plus her background.

As a midwife, I feel so fortunate to have a lifetime of skills and experiences to draw from as the HypnoBirthing© course unfolds. Plus, I am also able to offer waterbirth sessions and practical “Baby”sessions for the men, and daytime”Mothering”sessions just for women.

Each year, as a practising midwife I have an annual Supervisory with my Supervisor of Midwives. Always so valuable. Learn so much. What a shame that from next March, Supervision for Midwives will be abolished. What I did learn with my update was that the midwives who work on labour ward actually are noticing the difference between couples who have read a hypnobirthing book, and those couples who have undertaken a hypnobirthing course. Curious to find out more, I asked the crucial question.Why does it matter???  I was pretty sure I knew the answer, but wanted to make sure I was on the right track.

Commitment. Pure and Simple. Commitment.

With the HypnoBirthing course you are guided all the way. Lots of demonstrations on how everything works, and also lots of practising. In the sessions and then when the couples are at home.

So there you have it. Straight from the horses’ mouths.

HypnoBirthing prepares your mind for the best birth you can have.The way you birth effects your baby, with his or her personality and with all his or her future relationships.Get in touch to find out more about having a baby using HypnoBirthing Techniques. Would love to hear from you. Annie xx
