Advanced Hypnosis for Childbirth ( Hypnobirthing ) courses

Advanced Hypnosis for Childbirth courses occur each month on an ongoing basis. There is a choice of two Saturday half days OR one Saturday full day to complete the course. The advanced course can be attended with or without first attending an introductory workshop.

Birth has the potential to be one of the most wonderful experiences of your life.
Childbirth is a natural physiological process that a woman’s body is fully equipped for.
Each birth is unique, and easibirthing® is about empowering you to manage your individual experience, not fear it.
We train you to use self-hypnosis, relaxation, visualisation and breathing methods to prepare mind and body for birth. The easibirthing® method teaches you how to use hypnosis for pain management and aims to boost your trust in your body so you enter labour feeling calm, confident and in control.
This is about reaching a state of deep relaxation, maintaining perception of control over the process and developing a positive attitude.
It is about changing your expectation of birth so that you help rather than hinder the natural process, and develop valuable life skills for parenthood.

Below are some Salisbury women's descriptions of their childbirth experience following attendance of the advanced course:

“I knew exactly what to expect and was able to imagine what was happening. Felt calm during labour and know I can do it again.”           Amanda, 1st baby
"Wonderful, amazing-a testimony to hypno & faith!"   Joandi, 1st baby
“Very moving, amazing bringing our baby into the world. Strengthened mine and my husband’s relationship, we were a fantastic team."     Sarah, 1st baby
"An absolute essential-as necessary as a birth plan. I couldn't birth without this course in my armoury."                          Kelly, 3rd baby (attended course for all 3)

What are the benefits of using the ‘easibirthing’® method?

  • Reduce or eliminate fear
  • Produce pervasive relaxation
  • Significantly diminish or eliminate the need for medication; thereby eliminating its risks and post-delivery effects for both mother and child
  • Increase the rate of spontaneous vaginal birth, reducing the need for intervention 
  • Shorten the period of labour; by reducing anxiety during each stage
  • Make it possible the management and control of sensations of discomfort
  • Promote a steady recovery
  • Foster and increase positive emotions during the entire birth process
  • Help you create of an experience which has positive memories attached
  • Reduce incidence of post-natal depression
  • Stimulate and maintain a strong energy level into the post-delivery phase
  • Promote lactation for breast-feeding
  • Calmer, more laid-back baby

We work closely with the National Childbirth Trust in Salisbury. Many of our women and couples also choose to attend a local nct antenatal preparation course. easibirthing and nct attended together complement each other perfectly to build your confidence to give birth and to prepare you for feeling empowered to make the right choices for you during birth.
