Benefits of Hypnobirthing

Benefits of Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing has many benefits for the whole family; Mother, Baby and Father!

The essence of Hypnobirthing is in deep relaxation, enabling a Mother to relax deeply during pregnancy and labour.  Relaxation has an affect not just on your mind, but on your body and your baby.  Babies of hypnobirthing Mothers are reported to be calmer, more content, feed better and sleep better.  Research shows that prenatal hypnosis and a relaxed Mother had positive effects and better outcomes for babies (resulted in higher 1-minute neonatal Apgar scores and improved performance on the Neonatal Behavioural Assessment Scale).(1,2)

During deep relaxation, fear and tension are replaced with positive thoughts, as a result leading to a more positive pregnancy, birth experience and the potential to reduce pain. Research shows that prenatal hypnosis leads to significantly less use of sedatives, analgesia, and regional anaesthesia during labour. Those Mothers who practiced hypnobirthing are less likely to have intervention.  Relaxation has a positive impact on women's emotional state and pregnancy outcomes are improved (with fewer admissions to the hospital, fewer obstetric complications, longer gestation, reduction of caesarean sections, and fewer postpartum complications).

The deep breathing techniques that are taught, help supply Mother and Baby with nourishing oxygen, calm and focus.  All the techniques can be applied to future births and other situations in life. Learning to enter deep relaxation has shown to release muscle tension, lower blood pressure and can even have beneficial effects on your immune system.

Hypnobirthing also enables you to understand your body during labour and allows you to listen to your instincts.  It empowers you to feel more in control and confident, regardless of how or where your birth takes place.

Hypnobirthing can also enable your birth partner to feel more actively involved in the birthing process, to feel more empowered and allows them to feel proud they can be of help.  It is a great way for you and your partner to enjoy time together before the arrival of your little one, strengthening your bond, and your bond with your baby before it arrives.
