Who is Hypnobirthing for?
Hypnobirthing is for everyone. In it’s simplest form it can be described as a relaxation exercise, that with a bit of guidance and practice can be used to help you birth your baby naturally, calmly, more quickly and more easily. Reducing risks of trauma to you and your baby. And giving you and your birth partner the gift of understanding and enjoying the birth process.
Birthing is also a physical experience, so we offer massage and acupressure training to help you create the team you need to birth your baby in comfort.
If you are 12 weeks pregnant or more, you are ready to learn our birthing skills.
What is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is the use of simple self-hypnosis techniques to enable the mind and body to stay relaxed and in control throughout the whole birth process – no matter where or how you give birth to your baby.
Sorrell have guided hundreds of women through childbirth over her 21 years in practice. Supported every eventuality from natural breech births to phobias of hospitals and planned c-sections. Birth is not always ‘natural’, but we believe with our experience and bespoke courses, we can help you to have the best birth possible for you and your baby, we support ALL birth choices.
Hypnosis also causes our body to release natural anaesthesic chemicals into the body. We can tap into this innate ability during childbirth using our Hypnobirthing techniques to relieve the discomfort and increase our pleasure. So if you are hopeful for a natural birth, Hypnobirthing is a tool you will be forever grateful you learnt!
The Benefits of Hypnobirthing
- You are likely to experience a more comfortable and sometimes pain free birth.
- Your baby will arrive to a serene and relaxed environment, alert and ready to bond with you as nature intended.
- Length of labour is often much shorter with Hypnobirthing births.
- Less drugs and medical intervention are used in Hypnobirthing births allowing your baby to develop naturally and easily after they arrive.
- Mums often bounce back quicker after a Hypnobirthing birth as the physical impact of giving birth is reduced.
- Your birth partner will learn how to support you and have a central and active role in the birth. A truly shared and loving experience.
The benefits to you are obvious, but the long term benefits to your baby cannot be over-estimated. We repeatedly get wonderful birth stories of Hypnobirthing babies being calm, content and sleeping really well. Mother and baby simply seem to thrive better.
Can anyone learn Hypnobirthing?
The techniques are easy to learn, and easy to use. It starts with learning self-hypnosis, a deep relaxation and trance like experience. Using hypnosis you will learn to relax deeply at will and control your mind. You will develop the ability to produce a natural form of anaesthesia which can support your birth process whether you choose a home or hospital birth. The reality of birth is that often there maybe stages where pain and stress can make you feel out of control and fearful. Learning hypnobirthing techniques will enable you to prevent stress from affecting your mind, you can stay relaxed and in control through the whole process. The natural anaesthesia techniques enable you to welcome the contractions, relieving the pain significantly, sometimes totally. This pain relief reduces the need for drug interventions, however, if intervention is required the techniques can be adapted to use in conjunction with them.
