The award winning SIMPLE Hypnobirthing Method can help you to release fears and anxieties you may have about giving birth, including helping you overcome previous more traumatic births. It teaches you to understand your pregnant and labouring body, we teach you: what hypnobirthing is and how it works; how the body works in labour; how the mind has an effect of the physiology of birth; how to promote the bodies natural painkiller to help an easier and more painfree birth. It promotes self-awareness and self-control. Additionally, the training in self-hypnosis assists you in reaching a level of relaxation and calm, at the times when you need it most.
The aim? To stop your body tensing at a time when release is all important.
It also encourages you to be emotionally strong. Understanding your body during birth is empowering, which helps mum (and dad!) stay calm and focused.
