Who is Hypnobirthing designed for? Will I remember my birth experience?

Common misconceptions about hypnobirthingThe word “hypnobirthing” can sound a bit hippy which can create misconceptions. We are here to debunk some common misconceptions surrounding hypnobirthing. 

One misconception we hear all the time is that Hypnobirthing is only for natural births. MYTH! Hypnobirthing is for everyone who wants to achieve a positive and empowering birth regardless of whether you’re having a natural, caesarean, water, home, hospital birth which is why it is revolutionising birthing in Australia. 

Basically we promote POSITIVE birth and are well prepared for whatever turns our birth may or may not take. Chances are, our birth will be natural, but all throughout the course it is  emphasised that the techniques serve us well in any scenario. 

The second myth is that you will be unconscious and won’t remember your birth experience. MYTH! The ‘hypno’ part in hypnobirthing refers to self-hypnosis. Despite misconceptions and misinformation, you are definitely not unconscious during self-hypnosis.

The Hypnobirthing mother is deeply relaxed, she is totally aware and may return to a conversant state or choose to become mobile whenever she desires. Hypnobirthing mothers often find that they experience time distortion and are not distracted by other people or their birthing environment, while they focus on their birthing and their baby.

The Hypnobirthing Australia Positive Birth Program is an evidence-based and comprehensive course that prepare you with the knowledge, confidence and tools you need to birth calmly and regardless of how your baby enters this world – be it naturally or via caesarean, home birth, hospital birth or water birth
