HypnoBirthing® Concept

HypnoBirthing® and Trust In Birth are as much a philosophy as they are natural childbirth techniques. The concept of HypnoBirthing® and Trust In Birth is not new, but rather recaptured in the work of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, an English obstetrician and father of natural childbirth, who first forwarded the concept of natural birthing in the 1920’s.

The HypnoBirthing® and Trust In Birth natural childbirth methods teach you that in the absence of fear and tension (Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome), severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labour. Grantly Dick-Read, discovered that when labouring mothers were free of fear, their bodies relaxed; the muscles of their cervix relaxed; and something wonderful happened that permitted an easier natural birth.

You will gain an understanding of how the Birthing muscles work in perfect harmony – as they were designed to do – when your body is sufficiently relaxed.

When you have your baby with HypnoBirthing® and Trust In Birth you will not be asleep. What you will experience is similar to the daydreaming or focusing that occurs when you are engrossed in a book or a movie or staring into a fire.

You will be conversant and in good spirits- totally relaxed, but fully in control. Awake throughout, you will be aware of your body’s surges; but because you will have trained yourself to reach complete relaxation, you will be able to determine the degree to which you will feel the surges. In this calm state your body’s natural anesthesia, endorphins, replaces the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.
