What Is Natural Birthing Mothers ?

Natural Birthing Mothers uses deep relaxation which can reduce or completely eliminate the perception of pain associated with labor. Natural Birthing Mothers teaches the pregnant woman how to release fear and to relax her body fully, which she calls upon in labor to decrease her resistance to the natural process of birth. The deeply relaxed state that is achieved during labor helps accelerate the birthing process and create a natural and positive birthing experience.

How does it work ?

Natural Birthing Mothers involves learning relaxation, anxiety reduction, relaxed breathing and guided imagery. A hypnotic state is a natural state of deep relaxation with inner focus on suggested positive thoughts, images or sensations. The process is pleasurable, relaxing, furthers family bonding and not just about the moment of birth but deeply supportive of the mother during pregnancy.

Benefits of using hypnosis for childbirth:

i. Fewer medications or no drugs at all means less risk of side effects on mother and baby.

ii. Shorter labors - resistance of the birthing muscles as a response to pain is minimized or eliminated.

iii. An awake, energized mother, due to total relaxation throughout the birthing process.

iv. A calm, peaceful birthing environment. Creates a more integral role for the birthing companion. v. Fewer interventions and complications during labor.

vi. Babies who are better sleepers and nursers due to fewer drugs in their systems.

The profound relaxation and focusing allows the mother to be totally present in this beautiful process of birthing. Never in a fog state but in hyperawareness and wrapped in relaxation.
