When you have your baby with Hypnobirthing, you will be totally relaxed, but fully in control.
Hypnosis is a natural state of relaxed concentration and focus. What you experience with Hypnobirthing is similar to the daydreaming or focusing that occurs when you are engrossed in a book, staring at a fire, or are driving a car. You will be fully in control and able to carry on normal conversation. You can remain in touch with the instruction, encouragement and support of your birthing companion. You will be aware of your surges (contractions), but you will feel relaxed and calm.
Your body’s natural anesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones that create pain. Without fear and tension, you will be able to work in harmony with your body. You can be awake and aware throughout the birthing. At the moment of birth you can fully experience all the intense feelings and sensations of the miraculous moment and begin to bond immediately with your baby.
With Hypnobirthing you will be:
- Alert and aware
- Interactive and conversant
- Fully in control
- Relaxed and calm
- More rested, during and after the birth
