What will you learn?
During our course you will learn that you have choices in your birth journey. You will learn that there are different types of birth, and that each birth opens you to having different experiences. You will learn that there can be twists and turns in your pregnancy, and also during your birth experience, and that some births are more suited to others, than they are to you, but most importantly, you will learn that every birth experience is different, there isn’t a one size fits all option, but many options to fit everyone.
We will teach you about the history of birthing and where did birth, a natural physiological event, become so medicalised and full of intervention, when it’s not always necessary. We’ll talk to you about the physiology of birth and that women’s bodies were made to do this. We will show you what options are available to you in birth. We’ll talk about the Dutch maternity system, and pain relief. Yes, I said it, HypnoBirthing, isn’t only about having a “natural” birth, it’s also about knowing what pain care is available to you, should you feel you need it, and the impact of that. We’ll educate you on natural forms of induction, demonstrate comfort measures for labouring, talks birth preferences, understanding your options and owning your voice in the birth room, wherever that may be. You’ll learn to work as a team with your partner, and lets not forget your baby, because they also play a big role in your birth journey.
