Ok lovely gorgeous pregnant Mama! I know what you are thinking. ''If you say I have everything I need to Birth my a baby why would I need hypnobirthing!?'' We say ALL the time feel & know how amazing you are.
And you ARE!
You are growing a baby, you will birth that baby and you will nurture & grow that baby earthside. 🙌You are amazing 🙌You are strong 🙌You are powerful
So why then do you need hypnobirthing?
Well sadly we live in a world that teaches us to mistrust and feel negative about our bodies.
We are not good enough
We cannot do X Y or Z without help
We are distanced from what we are and we forget that we are so SO well designed.
Birth is hidden, or realistic birth is.
We see birth in films where a 6month old gets coached out of a frightened woman lying on a bed surrounded by white coats - all of which happens in about 10 mins.
We see programs like one born every minute marketed as factual and lifting the lid on birth BUT actually are edited, manipulated and set up (women picked who are more likely to have a more 'exciting' birth)
Birth (unless you are a birth geek like myself) is boring and on the most part pretty uneventful until baby is born.
So all this, along with the media, layers up to create FEAR. 😔Fear of birth 😔Fear of motherhood 😔Fear of what might happen 😔Fear of being out of control 😔Fear of not being able to do it
Trust me I know- this was me.
The catch 22 is that everything you have in your body that helps your baby to be born only works smoothly or works at all if you are CALM and RELAXED.
We need calm and connecting hormones- we need to be riding the waves of our surges and we need to be relaxed and not resisting (even if that is only subconsciously) what our bodies are doing.
Hypnobirthing helps us to do just that. (On a personal note- doing it when I was pregnant with Esther totally changed my life.) Hypnobirthing does so much....
