Hypnobirthing teaches self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques for an easier, more gentle birth that is often accompanied by a significant reduction in pain. It uses techniques such as breathing, visualisation and meditation. Hypnobirthing helps women and their birthing partners to feel more confident and calm about the birth and looks at birth in a positive light rather than a negative one.

It is not about preparing to have “the perfect birth”, it’s about preparing to accept whatever birth brings in a confident and empowered manner.
