Gaining Trust You Can Do This
Before starting hypnobirthing classes, many mothers say that they simply don’t believe that they can give birth. For some it’s a lack of trust in their mental ability to stay calm and to cope with the process. Others don’t have confidence that their body can do this.
Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing helps you put together your own set of positive mental tools that you can use to develop confidence in yourself and in your body.
Trusting Your Body
Right from the first class, I’ll guide you to realise that your body absolutely does know how to give birth – it’s what women’s bodies evolved to be able to do. And that trust in your body increases your sense of calm during the rest of your pregnancy.
The good thing is that being mentally positive and calm, with the mind at ease, seems to enable the body to get on with using its natural, physiological processes as the muscles contract to open up the way for the baby and then to guide the baby out.
Trusting Your Mind
By the end of your Confident Childbirth classes, you’ll have a range of tools for calm and for pain control. Many of these work automatically, so that you can relax into being excited about the birth of your baby.
“In the lead-up to the birth, Confident Childbirth gave me something to work on and believe in to make the birthing experience a good one. It enabled me to stay calm.” AH
