Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing is a complete alternative childbirth preparation programme for a calm, gentle birth and confident and joyful parenting.

I teach a full Hypnobirthing syllabus in five 3.5 hour weekly sessions and provide practical and emotional tools to empower you in your pregnancy, birth and parenting choices.

Through my experience as a Doula and Lotus Hypnobirthing mother myself, I also cover other alternative aspects to help you prepare for the exciting journey and choices that lay ahead.  For example, in addition to the standard modules, I also include a module on discussions around the placenta; the physical, emotional and spiritual thought processes behind the options that are available to honour and utilise this amazing organ.

Hypnobirthing instills confidence in Fathers and Birth Partners by giving them an in-depth understanding of the birthing process and offering an active participatory role that may otherwise have been left unexplored.

When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when her mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with all other creatures.

You will be fascinated as you view Hypnobirthing films showing labouring mothers, awake, alert and in good humour as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome.

Hypnobirthing teaches you to release all prior negative programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles.

The use of relaxation during pregnancy and labour creates the following benefits:

  • Reduces the length of both first and second stages of labour.  (Several studies support a reduction of around 3 hours, others up to a seven and a half hour reduction for the first stage)
  • Women report more satisfaction with their experience of labour and other benefits such as reduced anxiety and help with getting to sleep.
  • A reduced requirement for pain relief medication.  (Multiple research pieces report an incidence of 60-79 % non-medicated births)
  • Reduced rates of intervention, including induction, caesarean, forceps or vacuum.
  • A lower incidence of Post Natal Depression.

This course will aid bonding of the whole family and will help you to welcome your baby tenderly into the world.  Many parents who have used this technique feel that their babies are more settled, feed and sleep better.

The cost of the course is:

1450 AED for a group class (Classes will be a maximum of 4 couples)

1750 AED for individual classes (Classes can be held in the comfort of your own home)

Includes :

  • The Hypnobirthing book.
  • A complete practical compilation of handouts for you to keep and use for your home practice.
  • A guided imagery exercise on CD
  • Birthing Affirmations on CD
  • A complete antenatal teaching program 

A deposit of 250 AED will secure your place on the course.  Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on +971 555 080 359 or email me at viki@blessedbirth.co.uk
