The complete Hypnobirthing programme - 4 session course

Hypnobirthing is about promoting a positive birth experience whatever journey your birth may take. If you were planning for a big occasion like a wedding you would plan for the best day you could possibly have with lots of attention to detail, you would have contingency plans for example if its raining etc; so why when it comes to planning for birth do so many parents say ‘we are just going to see how it goes and not put any pressure on ourselves to have a natural birth’.

Birth can be unpredictable and may not be the birth experience you originally had in mind. If you have made a plan, then youcan make an informed decision that is right for you and know your options you are more likely to have a positive experience.
