You need to take birthing into your own hands. To have the best possible experience you need to take the time to get educated and stay positive. You need some good tools up your sleeve for when the going gets tough or you need to be able make decisions quickly and know how to ask the right questions.
A hypnobirthing course puts you firmly in charge of how you want your birth to unfold, and how to manage if your birth deviates from what you hoped for.
Please don’t wing it, or leave it to the experts.
Here is why I think every women should get educated about childbirth –
The ability to relax and get yourself easily into a state of deep relaxation is such a wonderful gift. Relaxation doesn’t always come easily, it takes practice, but is the one thing that you can do that is so good for your body, your mind and your heart. During labour and birth, relaxation is the key to remaining calm, if you can do this, you remove tension in your body and if you remove tension, you can birth more easily and in less pain. Hypnobirthing doesn’t promise a pain free birth (even though this is possible and some women experience this), it gives you everything you need to make it as easy, comfortable and manageable as possible.
We are exposed to so many birthing horror stories, it is no wonder we feel scared about giving birth. Once we are educated about how our bodies give birth and what our bodies need to make this as smooth as possible, we can more easily release our birthing fears and replace them with positive feelings and thoughts about birth. Learning techniques for releasing fears and maintaining a positive mindset is one of the best life skills you will take away from hypnobirthing classes. This is the exact kind of work that athletes do before a big race.
Taking the time to think about baby, connect with baby, relax, visualise birth and fully prepare for those first few weeks and months of motherhood will help you to develop a strong bond with baby during your pregnancy. Bonding with baby in the womb will help you develop a connection and attachment that will help you cope with the pressures of motherhood and give your baby everything it needs for the best start in life.
Hypnobirthing will help you to make time for yourself, and give yourself and your baby the opportunity to have a wonderful birth experience to set you off on your journey as a mother.
There is no room for perfectionism in birth, and no matter how much we plan, baby has its own ideas. What we can do is be prepared. Once we are prepared, then we can handle anything that comes our way.
You wouldn’t run a marathon without doing some training first, and buying yourself a decent pair of trainers. Hypnobirthing and pregnancy yoga classes are your training for birth. If you do the work, you will get the results.
