Why do I need to do this course if I am already taking an NCT or NHS course?
These workshops are an excellent compliment to other antenatal courses as they approach birth preparation from a unique yet simple, easy and effective angle covering areas not covered by most other courses. As one mother said:-
"This course reaches the parts other courses can not reach!"
Most courses focus very much on what will happen during birth and all the procedures and protocols of our modern maternity system. There is often a strong emphasis on the types of medication and intervention available, however there is usually little taught on mental preparation and practical tools and techniques that a woman can do to help herself.
The Natal Hypnotherapy workshops focus exclusively on what you can do to help yourself have the most positive birth experience, regardless of the type of birth you are planning. Whether you want a natural water birth at home or are open to having an epidural in your local hospital, what you learn on these workshops will give you the confidence and ability to work with you body no matter what your birth choices are.
So what will I learn on each workshop?
- Natural pain relief - Hypnosis for birth
The first of the 2 workshops focuses exclusively on natural pain management tools and techniques - namely breathing, relaxation and self hypnosis. This workshop can be taken as an individual or as a couple. The natural pain relief workshop focuses very much on your mental preparation for birth, again an area often missing on other courses. It helps you address and overcome any fears, teaches you how to relax and use your breathing effectively and helps you understand why and how these things are so important.
The workshop is either a full day from 9.30 - 5pm or 2 evenings from 7 - 10 pm during which you will learn:-
· Natural ways to reduce pain in child birth
· Self-hypnosis skills to overcome fear and increase your confidence and trust in your ability to give birth
· Effective breathing and deep relaxation techniques
· How fear or anxiety can have a negative impact on your body during the birth and learn how to reduce it
· Ways your birth partner can help you achieve a deeply relaxed state
This one- day workshop can be taken at any time during your pregnancy and is the perfect complement to NCT / NHS classes, as it covers areas that are not covered on the majority of these courses.
- Practical birth preparation
The second workshop is a very practical day to help you and your birth partner prepare both physically, mentally and emotionally for the birth. During the day you will be taken step by step through the birthing process from a physical as well as emotional perspective, learning practical tools and techniques to help you work with your body in the most effective way.
The birth preparation workshop teaches you simple, effective and practical tools and techniques to stay calm, relaxed and confident as well as helping you understand the physical as well as emotional map of birth. The emotional map is one which very few other courses touch on and yet for hundreds of couples who have done this course, they feel that this was one of the most important things they learnt.
This workshop can be taken as an individual or as a couple, however it is extremely useful for a birth partner to attend as many techniques work best when a birth partner is involved. The workshop is a full day from 9.30 - 5pm or 2 evening sessions from 7 - 10pm during which you will learn:-
· Practical techniques to help you stay calm and relaxed during the birth including massage, using a birth ball and birthing positions
· How your body works best during labour and what you can do to help it
· Practical tools and techniques for your partner to keep you calm, relaxed and ease discomfort during the birth
· How your emotions change during the labour and signs to look for
· Effective ways to work with the medical team supporting you
This one-day workshop can be taken at any time during your pregnancy however most couples prefer to take it closer to the time of birth (from about 32 weeks onwards).
This workshop is a natural compliment to the natural pain relief workshop. It also works well with couples attending NCT or NHS classes as it covers elements such as the emotional map of birth and physical techniques that are not covered on most other antenatal courses.
"The best part for me was understanding the emotional aspects of birth (not covered by other courses) the importance of preparation, really grasping how natural childbirth is and giving me the confidence and trust in my body. This course has really helped me! Thank you!' Kate
"The key issues for me that came out of the course were all the ways to provide effective support for my partner, increasing my confidence to deal with the hospital environment and the relaxation techniques. The course was extremely useful. Men need to know this stuff." Chris
