When we first fall pregnant we don’t really give much thought to the birth process; or to natural birth!
But as each new trimester begins our thoughts turn to birth. We may assume that we will just go into hospital and come out with a baby, but there is so much more to it than that.
Birth for some women is described as pain-free or even orgasmic, but that certainly isn’t the case for many. Hypnobirthing techniques do, however, help your birth become as comfortable as it can be.
There are things you can do to prepare….
Setting up your environment is probably the most important thing you can do. Setting up the space that you will spend a significant part of your labour in, will help you remain calm and keep your birthing hormones at optimal levels. Understanding your body’s natural ability to birth will help you organise your home for birth and beyond. Being ready is helpful!
Feeling confident in your ability to birth, understanding what is happening and why it’s happening, can make all the difference as you feel the sensations of birth. Knowing how the body expels the baby, helps you understand the sensations that you are feeling and when you know what your body is doing, you can anticipate your need for comfort measures.
Understanding how mindset impacts your ability to birth – how all those stories you have been told are held in your memory. These are sometimes remembered as something to be feared. Learning fear release prior to birth can really help you to a natural positive birth.
