I’ve heard of Hypnobirthing, can I access this through One to One?
Hypnobirthing is the use of relaxation in childbirth, and focuses on preparing parents for a gentle labour and birth experience. Hypnobirthing encourages a calm, peaceful and natural pregnancy, birth and bonding experience for families.
Hypnobirthing can be beneficial for every woman, however can be particularly helpful for women and support partners who have had a previous bad experience or are particularly fearful of childbirth. Hypnobirthing uses relaxation techniques combined with parent education throughout the antenatal period to allow women & their support partners to discuss & work through any fears they may have regarding labour and/or childbirth. This enables you to allow your body to do what comes naturally when birthing your baby, without fear or resistance.
At One to One, we currently have 2 midwives who are able to provide Hypnobirthing classes to women under the One to One service. If you are interested, or would just like more information, speak to your One to One midwife. Hypnobirthing cannot promise you the perfect birth, but will definitely make a difference to the way you feel about labour and birth.
