hypnobirthing(R), a better way to birth
Defintion: - HypnoBirthing is as much a philosophy as it is a technique. It is a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy. When a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally, and spiritually, she can experience that sort of joy, birthing her baby in an easier, more comfortable, and often, even pain-free, manner. Through a well-thought-out program of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualization, affirmations, and education, HypnoBirthing returns to a woman the art of birthing in a way that allows her to summon her natural birthing instincts and to birth her baby in safety and with ease. -Marie Mongan HypnoBirthing Founder and Author of HypnoBirthig The Mongan Method
The Advantages of Using HypnoBirthing: - Eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome before, during and after birth
-Reduces, and often eliminates, the need for chemical anesthesia, episiotomy, and other interventions.
-Lessens fatigue during labor, leaving the mother fresh, awake, and energized as she brings her baby into the world.
-Shortens the thinning and opening phase of labor
- Brings the mother, the baby, and birthing companion together in a wonderful prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal bonding experience.
- The birthing companion is an integral part of the birthing, not and onlooker.
-Mothers don't run the risk of hyperventilating from shallow breathing.
-Birthing is returned to the safe, beautiful, peaceful experience that Nature intended.
