Giving birth will be your greatest achievement. I can certainly say it was mine. For a mother, hypnobirthing enables her to work with her body, which is naturally designed to give birth. It releases the fear and negativity that she has been programmed with from an early age that birth is painful, and replaces it with calm confidence. Hypnobirthing will enable a mother to remember the birth as the most wonderful and empowering experience of her life. A father who has learnt hypnobirthing with his wife and practised together throughout the pregnancy, will produce hormones of confidence and calm. He will also have a positive impact on the environment. Being a supportive and protective part of the process of his baby being born can enrich and deepen the couple’s relationship and also deepen the relationship of father and child. The father will feel empowered knowing he played an important part in how his child entered the world. The birth of a baby is positively impacted when the mother is a hypnobirthing mother. When a mother is feeling calm and confident during labour, the muscles of the uterus are relaxed and provide a more comfortable journey for the baby. In addition, the oxygen carried in the mother’s blood is the oxygen which goes through the placenta to the baby, so the baby’s oxygen supply is not compromised. As a result the baby is relaxed and labour progresses more efficiently.
