How does KG Hypnobirthing differ from traditional antenatal preparation education?

image16

KG Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal  and preparation for parenthood course.


The 'hypno' part of hypnobirthing relates to hypnotherapy  and the  techniques  that you learn will work in two main ways:


You will learn how to achieve deep relaxation states and how to use hypnotherapy techniques to release fear and build confidence in your body's ability to birth your baby.

Staying relaxed during labour is key to ensuring that you have the right amount of the right hormones coursing through your body during labour. Oxytocin is the hormone which governs labour and is also known as the love hormone. To keep this hormone at a peak level, stress hormones have to be kept at bay and this is where Hypnobirthing techniques help you to  take control of your labour and birth experience. 


Hypnobirthing also covers the following in detail; 

  • what to expect as pregnancy progresses, 
  • relationship building with your unborn baby, 
  • positive communication with care givers
  • hypnobirthing in different scenarios at home and in hospital
  • hypnobirthing in water and on dry land
  • hypnobirthing and induction-natural and medical.
  • signs of labour, 
  • stages of labour 
  • meeting your baby-the early hours, days and weeks of parenthood.

Everyone can benefit from  KG hypnobirthing and although hypnobirthing does not guarantee a 'perfect birth', it always makes a difference. Fear release exercises reduce anxiety, allowing your body to work as nature intended.

KG hypnobirthing is beneficial whatever birth you have, whether it be a home, water birth, a hospital birth or a planned caesarean section as the focus is on achieving the birth that is right for you, whatever the circumstances surrounding your pregnancy and birth.

The KG hypnobirthing course teaches all of the techniques needed to help you achieve a calm birth. Both partners are encouraged to participate in relaxation and breathing exercises, therefore both benefit.

Do Not Intervene to Speed up Labour


 

Medical staff and midwives should not intervene to speed up a woman’s labour unless there are real risks of complications, says the World HealthOrganisation (WHO), warning that too many are not having the experience of natural childbirth that they want.

New guidance from the WHO overturns decades of previous advice, which said that labour which progressed at a slower rate than 1cm of cervical dilation per hour in the first stage was risky. Women are often given the drug oxytocin to speed up labour and end up with epidurals because of the pain, followed by forceps or vacuum deliveries and in some cases a caesarean section.
