THE HYPNOBIRTHING BOOK
hypnobirthing: practical ways to make your birth better
Siobhan is on a mission to show women everywhere that birth can be better. And not just better, but amazing!
This book is for EVERY woman growing a baby and for EVERY type of birth -- from a home water birth through to an unplanned caesarean.
So, what is hypnobirthing? Essentially, it's a form of antenatal education, an approach to birth that is both evidence-based and logical. Hypnobirthing teaches you how your body works on a muscular and hormonal level when in labour, and how to work with your body to make birth more efficient and comfortable. Being relaxed is key, so you will learn how to quickly and easily access a state of deep relaxation using a combination of breathing techniques, visualisations, guided relaxation exercises, light touch massage, positive affirmations and various other techniques.
Hypnobirthing will change your mindset towards birth and give you the tools needed so that you can navigate your birth - and any twists and turns - with confidence, feeling calm and in control throughout.
No matter where you sit on the 'anxious-to-excited' spectrum at the moment, by the time you finish this book you'll feel relaxed, capable and genuinely excited about giving birth, because it's truly the most awesome thing you'll ever get to do in your life.
