This month I have asked hypnobirthing expert Kristin Hayward to share how this technique can help you prepare for birth, during this especially anxious time, and how to access support from home –
The C word in pregnancy usually refers to Contractions, Caesarean, C-section or even Complications. But two more words have suddenly appeared – Covid and Corona.
Covid-19 has affected everyone however pregnant women may well be particularly anxious with the current uncertainties surrounding birth.
What about my home birth? Is it safe in hospital? Who can come? How will I cope? What about partners? I feel out of control! …. And help! My antenatal class is cancelled!
The more we let our minds wander, the more we realise that Covid-19 has turned our world upside down.
But remember – your baby is safe and will come into your arms with little regard for this new situation. Your priority is to give your baby the best start in life. Hypnobirthing provides the best solution, teaching you how to achieve deep relaxation, eliminate stress, stay in the moment and remain calm and confident for birth.
Midwives all agree that a relaxed mother releases her baby more quickly, comfortably and safely.
Through hypnobirthing you can learn powerful techniques to create a beautiful birth zone away from everyday worries and to reach the level of deep relaxation needed for an easier, positive birth experience.
It’s vital to have tools to release stress, reconnect to the joy of pregnancy and embrace birth confidently. Hypnobirthing babies are calm and happy, quite simply because they reflect their mother’s calm, confident energy. Hypnobirthing gives a mother the gift of enjoying her experience of birth and partners love it too!
‘I never believed I could enjoy labour – my midwife was amazed how quickly my baby came, my partner was amazed that I stayed so focussed and calm and our baby is perfect! Great course, it really works – thank you!’ Beth & James (Northampton)
The good news is that hypnobirthing is easy to learn online at home, at your own pace. Courses can be supplemented with online live sessions so there’s no need for traditional classes. Feel less alone, more connected to your baby and ready for a beautiful birth through hypnobirthing and the power of your mind.
