The HypnoBirthing® program facilitated by the education team at Women’s at Sandringham, follows the Mongan Method, with all facilitators trained through HypnoBirthing® International. HypnoBirthing® is the work of Marie F. Mongan, Founder and Director of the HypnoBirthing® Institute. https://au.hypnobirthing.com
HypnoBirthing® is described by HypnoBirthing® International (2016) as a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that when a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally, and spiritually, she can experience the joy of birthing her baby in an easier, more comfortable way.
Why HypnoBirthing works…
According to Dr Grantly Dick-Read, when fear is not present neither is pain. Fear causes the arteries leading to the uterus to constrict and become tense, creating pain. In the absence of fear, the muscles relax and become pliable, and the cervix is able to naturally thin and open as the body pulsates rhythmically and expels the baby with ease.
Through deep relaxation and innate breathing, you can rid your body of the debilitating fear that creates tension and labour pain. HypnoBirthing® creates the ideal platform for women, their partners and their babies to learn the necessary tools in order to achieve their ultimate birth wishes. These relaxation exercises become life skills that also shore up their parenting skills. Armed with this knowledge, the pattern of calming techniques and steps that they learn helps them to create endorphins and avoid the effect of the negative hormones that cause their bodies to constrict, rather than open.
It reminds us that birth is normal and natural, and like the bodies of other mammals in nature, a healthy pregnant woman instinctively knows how to birth, just as their bodies instinctively know how to conceive and nurture the development of their babies.
The workshop runs over 5 consecutive weeks of 2 and ½ hour classes. Each class starts at 6:30pm and is held at the Family Life Centre, 197 Bluff Road, Sandringham. There is onsite parking available. The course includes a textbook & relaxation CD or MP3 to support your learning and preparation towards the birth. Each session has a different focus, as listed below:
Session 1 – Building a positive expectancy
Session 2 – Falling in love with your Baby. Preparing mind & Body
Session 3 – Getting ready to welcome your baby
Session 4 – Overview of Childbirth – A labour of love
Session 5 – Birthing – Breathing
