HypnoBirthing helps the mother to become more relaxed, taking away the fear which is often what makes the process so painful and difficult. HypnoBirthing teacher Stella Greenhalgh says she believes that many of women’s fears about birth comes from television shows, popular culture and horror stories from friends and families.
HypoBirthing helps create a calming and relaxing environment, combating fears and anxieties, and can reduce recovery time after the birth. It also means that the baby comes into the world without having been subjected to any drugs, which may make it more alert.
HypnoBirthing aims to make the birthing process a more natural process rather, taking away the medical aspect.
