Hypnobirthing – Farnham – Guildford – Hampshire – Surrey
I met up with the lovely Natalie the Dragonfly Doula recently to have chat about all things hypnobirthing. She is so friendly, super calm I can totally see why clients choose her for Birth Preparation Classes and Hypnobirthing.
I will leave the words to The Dragonfly Doula……
Hi, I’m Natalie
Not sure what hypnobirthing is all about?
Right, let me say one thing right off the bat… Hypnobirthing needs a name change because let’s face it, it’s pretty rubbish and it doesn’t really define what courses like this are about these days, well… most of them anyway!
Hypnobirthing has been around for a LONG time and it’s definitely not the fad that it’s made out to be. Nor is it all about crystals and chanting! Since it’s inception many years ago, it has evolved into something pretty awesome.
Hypnobirthing, to me, is something that informs, educates and supports families. Which in turn helps them to empower themselves when it comes to having a baby and all the options and choices that birthing and parenthood entail.
A Dragonfly Doula Hypnobirthing Course is one that is logical, evidence based and mostly importantly is underpinned by science. It is a complete antenatal programme that aims to cover everything from how the body and baby work together during pregnancy and birth, the different places to birth, the options when it comes to forms of pain relief including both pharmacological methods and Hypnobirthing tools and techniques, positions for labour and understanding the biomechanics of birth, birthing aids as well as planning for those early days postpartum etc, etc.
A Hypnobirthing course will help you understand the impact that years of negative conditioning about birth will have on the mind and body and ultimately the experience that’s often had, resulting from what we refer to as the fear-tension-pain cycle. You get the opportunity to acknowledge your fears and address them, replacing them with knowledge so that you’ll see the bigger picture and feel more confident and positive about birth.
You’ll learn far more than just breathing and relaxation tools because as lovely as that is, as someone who has had three children (two using hypnobirthing techniques) I’m fully aware that as much as they can help, it’s more the knowing you have rights and choices, that you’re the decision maker and that you should have the loudest voice in the birth room which can really help you feel that your experience is a positive one.
I’m a huge believer that the tools and knowledge you get from a Birth Preparation & Hypnobirthing Course can be of huge benefit in many different birth scenarios, including induction, caesarean, and those situations where things start to stray from your ideal birth preferences. That’s why it’s so important that we cover and learn all about the different types of birth, what your options are for each of them and how to ask some really important questions to make sure you are getting the right information to help you make the decisions that are right for you and your baby.
Then get in touch today, book an exploratory chat and take advantage of this fab opportunity to learn, feel empowered and excited about the arrival of your new baby. Whether it is your first pregnancy, second, third or even more I can guarantee that you’ll learn something new that will support you to feel calm, relaxed and positive about the prospect of birthing your baby! I am now taking bookings for my group courses at a wonderful new venue,
The Healthcare Hub,
Sessions will be tailored to your individual needs, with plenty of time to ask all the questions you have and best of all whilst making new friends with other parents-to-be that are going through similar experiences to you!
