For most of their lives, women have been inundated with the negative stories of other women’s birth experiences. Everyone, from their mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends, and even strangers, wants to tell them the horrors of giving birth. They have been conditioned to believe that excruciating pain is associated with birth; and because of this, women today hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth. This extreme fear causes their bodies to become tense, and that tension often prevents them from easily performing the normal, physiological function of birth. The result? Exactly what they feared most long, painful, disappointing birthings.
People who are drawn to Hypno Birthing have long been searching for a way that helps women give birth as calmly, safely, and gently as possible. Until Hypno Birthing was founded, it seemed almost unattainable. Through a very simple program of self hypnosis and education, women learn to release emotions tied to fear-based stories and misinformation, and they are helped to see birth as normal. They learn to trust that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world in the calm and gentle way that Nature intended.
"I was really scared about the pain of childbirth, having heard horror stories all my life and was expecting more of the same. The first time I heard Kay explain the principles of Hypno Birthing™ I experienced a 'light bulb moment' and began to relax and believe that I could really do this! And I did do this! Arriving at hospital fully dilated and completely calm and having to convince the nurses that I was actually ready to give birth!" Laura
