The Little Birth Company programmes will support you regardless of where or how you give birth, you will develop the confidence to plan for a positive experience and the practical tools to navigate your birth and adapt as you need to.
Hypnobirthing is a birthing method that uses self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques to help you feel physically, mentally and spiritually prepared and reduce awareness of fear, anxiety and pain during childbirth.
Your hypnobirthing classes will explain the physiology of birth, how visualisations work, practical breathing techniques, the power of positive thinking and language to relax the body and mind. You will learn the importance of creating a birth environment that supports a positive birth. We empower birth partners to understand their role so that they can be fully confident and present.
What are the benefits:
The Little Birth Company families say that the Hypobirthing tools and techniques supported them throughout pregnancy, birth and into parenting.
Research and anecdotal feedback shows that Hypnobirthing can shorten the length of labour, reduce the need for medical intervention and pain management.
Hypnobirthing produces clinically beneficial results.
A recent study (Veringa-Skiba et al 2021) looked at the effects of fear of childbirth, comparing ‘enhanced care as usual’ with ‘mindfulness based childbirth and parenting’ (hypnobirthing techniques).
Using data from mindfulness-based childbirth education and obstetric interventions, researchers found that parents who had a fear of childbirth and took a hypnobirthing class were:
36% less likely to have an epidural
51% less likely to ask for a Caesarean birth
Twice as likely to have a unmedicated birth than those who didn’t do the course
Had babies with higher APGAR scores 1 minute after birth
Mindfulness based childbirth education was significantly superior to ‘enhanced care as usual’ in decreasing fear of childbirth, catastrophizing of labour pain, preference for non urgent obstetric interventions, and increasing acceptance of labour pain.
