For most people, it’s hard to relax in a moment of such importance as the birth of your child. That’s why practising in advance with relaxation techniques, is very helpful. Releasing all the negative thoughts in advance will make you feel more self assured and more self-empowered. With doing the exercises you reach deeper thoughts. With hypnobirthing, you can release fears, worries and doubts. You clear the pathway for birthing with trust in a calm way. This is why hypnobirthing is different from all other pregnancy courses.
Hypnosis is a state of relaxation combined with having a focus. Everybody goes into such a state several times a day. For example, when you are driving, walking, reading, listening or dancing. While you relax you are still aware and attentive. Hypnosis, as it is shown in theatres or on television, is very different from hypnobirthing and does not relate the course. During the course you are conscious and at all times you make your own decisions.
