Confront childbirth nerves with Hypnobirthing classes

Hypnobirthing is about preparing you for a more calm and positive labour and birth. It is about providing you with the tools and the support so that you are the one that is in the driver’s seat.

So, what is hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing is for EVERYONE!  It is about allowing every childbearing person to have the birth that they deserve; a positive and empowering birth experience no matter the circumstances. 

In today’s society it is natural to be overcome with apprehension and fear around birth.  It has almost become taboo to talk about our birth experiences.  Particularly our positive ones; leaving our imagination to run wild with the  birth stories that we do hear and the portrayal of birth on our TV screens.  Because of this, we have forgotten that birth is really just a natural and innate part of being a childbearing human.  This is literally what we are born to do.  We must remember this and trust our bodies!

At Little Bird Flies, Melissa provides you and your birth partner with the tools and the knowledge to not only approach birth calmly but with courage and confidence.  It is about having the support and the preparation you can draw on when you need it most and Hypnobirthing Australia’s Positive Birth course allows you to do just that!

Whilst the Positive Birth course is built upon the belief that when you harness the power of the mind-body connection you are able to remain calm and in control, it is just ONE part of what is the most well-rounded childbirth education class Australia has to offer.

What does the evidence say about hypnobirthing?

Studies show that complementary antenatal education programs like Hypnobirthing Australia’s Positive Birth program can have wonderful benefits on birthing outcomes and maternal satisfaction. A 2016 Australian study by Kate Levett found that epidural and caesarean section rates were halved and babies were less likely to require resus; with higher 1 minute APGAR scores. A study (Smith et al, Adelaide, Australia) conducted in Adelaide found that women who were taught self-hypnosis had decreased requirements for pharmacological analgesia and were more satisfied with their pain management in labour whilst a small study in the UK found that women had a greater sense of relief and consolation, self confidence, satisfaction and decrease in fear of natural childbirth. They expressed increased concentration on their uterus and cervical muscle and had a much greater awareness of all stages of their labour (Abbasi et al, Middlesex UK). The most important thing about Hypnobirthing Australia’s Positive Birth Program is that it will leave you feeling prepared for whatever pathway your birthing journey takes.
