    Birth choices in Swindon

    Very often with hypnobirthing, couples feel more confident to opt for a home birth, choosing the familiarity, private and peaceful environment that they can offer. Alternatively, many couples opt for birth centre births, particularly for first time births. Birth centres are usually in the hospital and are midwife-led, catering predominantly for natural birth. For some, the labour ward is necessary for medical reasons but is still a good environment for hypnobirthing. In Swindon, the Great Western Hospital is conveniently located near junction 15 of the M4. You can get in touch to book a tour or ask any questions:-

    FAQs

    Hypnobirthing can be regarded as a sophisticated form of pain management but there is a lot more to it. You can read all about it on my ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

    Actually, it is a lot more complicated than that. During childbirth, a lot of unforeseen circumstances can arise that are completely out of your control. Sometimes you might need pain-relieving drugs as a last resort for you and your baby. Moreover, hypnobirthing should be regarded as an acquired skill, with its success heavily relying on the amount of practice you put into it during the entirety of the 4-week course.

     

    Around 65%-70% of Hypnobirthing mothers typically do not feel the need to use any medical forms of pain relief according to the research conducted by Hypnobirthing Institute. In fact, exactly 69% of the hypnobirthing mums I have taught did not require any pain-relieving medication. A further 20%-25% of mums only typically need something mild, such as air or gas. The last 5%-10% of the Hypnobirthing mums are ‘special circumstance’ cases where medical intervention is the only option. Even in these borderline cases, the mums claimed that hypnobirthing techniques helped them in a lot of different ways. You can check out their individual experiences right here on my blog.

    Even though epidurals might seem a good idea, they can complicate things to an unmanageable degree. Mums who have had epidurals have complained about not being able to move around freely or change their birthing positions, which can be highly challenging if the baby is in a complicated position for the delivery. Moreover, epidurals can actually prolong the overall birthing time and increase the chances of a forceps delivery or vacuum extraction. Mothers who have had natural births also mention that they recovered faster and with no unforeseen complications.

     

    With Hypnobirthing, you’re provided with the best opportunity to have a natural, drug-free birth as it greatly alleviates the prospects of needing pain relief. This way is a lot more beneficial for both the mother and the baby. 

    You should wait till after your 20th pregnancy week but not later than your 30th week. If you are later than that, you can still join the course, but please get in touch. As another option, you can also choose the one-day intensive course that happens each month.

    It is advisable to practise whenever you can between your regular online hypnobirthing classes since it is more of an acquired skill than a gift. The 4-week time frame of our interactive hypnobirthing course enables you and your birth partner to feel fully confident and prepared as you approach your birthing day.

     

    If you’ve chosen the one-day intensive hypnobirthing course, it is best that you start a few weeks before your delivery date to give yourself enough practice time.

    Hypnobirthing is not for anyone in particular. It can be beneficial in many ways for all of the expecting couples. In general, hypnobirthing is best suited for anyone wanting to feel more confident and prepared about childbirth. First-time mums with no prior childbirth experience often look toward hypnobirthing to dispel their fears. Second-time mothers might be looking for an alternative approach to childbirth after a difficult first experience. For example, if they’ve had a C-section before, they might look toward hypnobirthing to help them give birth vaginally. These techniques are always useful regardless of where you choose to give birth. 

    Hypnosis is not anything weird that will put you in a trance. In actual facit, it just allows you to enter a more relaxed state. Self-hypnosis can work on anyone as long as they put the necessary effort into perfecting this skill throughout the duration of the 4-week online hypnobirthing course or, in case of the two-day or refresher courses, in the time afterward. Moreover, my online hypnobirthing course for Swindon couples involves so much more than mere self-hypnosis. You’ll learn a whole new philosophy and approach to giving birth. 

    Yes, hypnobirthing not only helps you, it also benefits your baby in numerous ways. During pregnancy, whatever you experience the baby does as well. So, when you’re calm, your body releases endorphins which are the body’s natural relaxant. These have been found in the placenta as well as the umbilical cord and might serve to help the baby get accustomed to life outside the womb and make its journey more comfortable. Research suggests that babies of mums who’ve had a natural birth, are a lot more alert and show enhanced interest in different breastfeeding behaviours. 

    Yes, at minimum your internet should have a 2Mbps upload speed. You can test it using Speedtest by Ookla.

    There are a lot of MP3s and CDS on the market to help you with your pregnancy but they would never give you the same interactive experience as with my online Hypnobirthing classes. My courses ensure that you learn all of the important techniques that are necessary for experiencing a calm, relaxing birth.
