Self-Hypnosis in Childbirth

This is a course for mother and partner to prepare them for the birth and teaching them to use self-hypnosis before and during labour.

Courses run for 4 weeks of approximately 1½ hours from 30 weeks of pregnancy.

Some of the reported benefits of Hypnosis for childbirth are:

  • Improved sleep prior and after
  • Reduction of heartburn
  • Control of blood pressure
  • Removal of fear and anxiety
  • Less need for induction of labour
  • Shorter labour – the resistance of birthing muscles due to pain is reduced
  • A more relaxed mother throughout the birthing process
