Women are constantly bombarded with negative stories about childbirth. They are often told that it is the most painful thing they will ever do in their lives. They are told all the gory details of births that had complications and all the medical intervention that could occur. It is no wonder women get anxious and worried about it. It is no wonder they are tense and unable to relax. It is no wonder that the ‘pain’ of childbirth then becomes a reality.
But it need not be like that. Childbirth is a natural process and one that women’s bodies were designed for.
I have a degree in biology. The human body fascinates me. Having my two sons were the most remarkable experiences for me and I enjoyed both of their births. In fact feeling the first strong uterine contraction was the most amazing experience of my life! (Maybe this is because I am a biologist and so had a scientific curiosity about this?) The uterine muscle is not under the control of the will and when all the hormone levels are correct and it is time for the baby to be born this muscle will contract whether you want it to or not. So you have two choices, to work with your body or not! Doing the former means that you make the birth a magical experience as it should be.
Thus with an understanding of the human body
and having studied hypnotherapy
I combined these two areas of knowledge and created the
Inner Power Hypnobirthing
method for natural childbirth
The Inner Power Hypnobirthing childbirth method is a philosophy and technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing and stress free birth.
