Sandringham HypnoBirthing Wednesday Night Program
"A rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing, that is based on the belief that when a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally, and spiritually, she can experience the joy of birthing her baby in an easier more comfortable way" - HypnoBirthing® International (2016)
WHY HYPNOBIRTHING WORKS-
According to Dr Grantly ****-Read, when fear is not present neither is pain. Fear causes the arteries leading to the uterus to constrict and become tense, creating pain. In the absence of fear, the muscles relax and become pliable, and the cervix is able to naturally thin and open as the body pulsates rhythmically and expels the baby with ease.
Through deep relaxation and innate breathing, you can rid your body of the debilitating fear that creates tension and labour pain. HypnoBirthing® creates the ideal platform for yourself, your partner and baby to learn the necessary tools in order to achieve your ultimate birth wishes. These relaxation exercises become life skills that also shore up your parenting skills. Armed with this knowledge, the pattern of calming techniques and steps that you will learn help create endorphins and avoid the effect of the negative hormones that cause your bodies to constrict, rather than open.
HypnoBirthing reminds you that birth is normal and natural, and like the bodies of other mammals in nature, a healthy pregnant woman instinctively knows how to birth, just as the bodies of other mammals instinctively know how to conceive and nurture the development of their babies.
