Most women who are pregnant look forward to giving birth, but for some there is a tinge of fear. Partly due to historical reasons, and partly due to negative birth stories. The modern media has a heavy responsibility in portraying birth as a traumatic experience in order to make it more dramatic on screen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fear inhibits the normal efficient functioning of the body. Hypnobirthing is a process of releasing this fear so that a woman is free to give birth efficiently and comfortably. Learning how to work with your body through each sensation will make a huge difference to your birth experience. Fear = Tension = Pain By the time it comes to give birth, the perfect system which is already in place in every woman’s body can work in the way it’s designed to do. The work to release the fear is really important.
