Benefits of Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing makes a positive difference to birth for both you and your baby:

  • You are likely to experience a more comfortable birth.
  • The length of your labour is often much shorter.
  • Less drugs and medical intervention are needed (including ventouse, forceps and caesarean births).
  • Your birth partner will learn how to support you and have a central and active role in the birth.
  • Reduced incidence of perineal trauma/tearing.
  • A calm and gentle birth for you, is also a calm and gentle birth for your baby! Your baby will be born into a calm and relaxed environment; alert and ready to bond with you.
  • Quicker physical postnatal recovery.
  • The initial benefits are obvious, but the long term benefits to you and your baby cannot be over-estimated either. Couples who practice hypnobirthing feel a greater sense of satisfaction overall with their birth experience and start parenthood is the best possible way. And a baby who enters the world alert and calm, and who is welcomed into a mother’s arms who is also alert and calm, loving and confident, starts life and forms its first relationship in this world in the best possible way.
