What is hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing is as much a philosophy of birthing as it is techniques. When a mother and her birth companion are able to approach their birth without fear and with knowledge, good support, and tools for birth – then their birthing can be a positive and empowering experience.
The ‘hypno’ part of ‘hypnobirthing’ refers to the hypnotherapy that we use during the program to release fears and condition ourselves to relax; helping our body to release endorphins at peak moments of birth.
With the help of hypnosis, the birth of your baby can be a more calm and relaxed experience; one where you are in the driver’s seat, rather than feeling like a passenger. Hypnobirthing parents are proven to have a lower intervention rate than non-hypnobirthing parents. This is due to the knowledge and confidence you gain in preparation for your birth, which helps you to make informed choices.

    Birth stories

    After giving birth for the second time I can honestly say how grateful I was to do the hypnobirthing course with Kassie. 

    Initially, after loosing my cousin in a very rare birthing tragedy, the thought of birthing was one of my biggest fears. After my first hypnobirthing class Kassie had me feeling excited about giving birth, very well educated and calm in understanding that the negative experiences of another did not have to become my own. The course allowed me to trust my instincts and prepare for what was to come. 

    Not only did I use these incredible tools for my first birth but I felt as though I could improve on them for my second. 

    The course is also structured to help guide your partner, which is a crucial element of birthing. My husband was confidently able to assist and understand what I may go through. It helped us become a team and it wasn’t just me having to prepare for the birth on my own. We came into the birth together and we were going to come out at the end together holding our precious child. 

    I can honestly say I feel honoured to have taken part in such a course as it enabled me to have two drug free births and be in the moment every breathe of the way.
