The benefits of hypnobirthing classes

by Marygrace Anderson, hypnotherapist at the Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy 

Marygrace Anderson is now offering hypnobirthing classes at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy. The benefits of hypnobirthing include:

  • Manage any discomfort through powerful breathing techniques.
  • Reduces fear, tension and discomfort, thus naturally increasing discomfort threshold.
  • Learn relaxation techniques that will help your body to work the way it is designed to.
  • Learn how to put yourself in control of your birth, rather than blindly turning your birthing experience over to your doctor or midwife.
  • Less medication and chemical anaesthesia is needed as muscles thin and open easily.
  • Hypnosis shortens the first stage of delivery by approximately 3 – 4 hours for mother's delivering their babies. For subsequent deliveries, it is not unusual for them to be as quick as 60 - 120 minutes long.
  • Learn visualisation techniques that can help your body to do what it wants to do. Allow your mind and body to work together in harmony. Experience the pleasures of birth rather than the negative experiences you may have heard from others.
  • Release worries and concerns you may have about birth.
  • Enables mother to go into "hypnotic relaxation" if unable to sleep between feeds.
  • Raises resistance to fatigue during delivery thus minimizing maternal exhaustion.
  • Encourages the production of milk.
  • Decreases "post natal blues" and speeds up recovery. Using the endorphin release to increase your body's natural anaesthetic; a much safer option than relying on pharmaceuticals and other drugs.
