Hypno-birthing  is a specific approach to the  preparation for childbirth, central to which is hypnosis. A programme of body awareness and  self -hypnosis  techniques are designed to maximise the opportunity for  a positive and calm  and natural birthing experience.  A reduction in physical and emotional stress and anxiety, enables your energy to be directed more appropriately, and detailed preparation for both mind and body enables you to have trust  in yourself, having also gained knowledge and confidence in the biology of the birthing process. Hypno-birthing preparation also brings huge benefits to partners, who have their own specific needs and concerns in addition to the need to feel prepared  for a  supporting and coaching role.
