How we approach birth matters. Our approach to birth defines our birth experience, and our birth experience shapes our life. Let’s take gentle steps and walk together towards a beautiful & peaceful pregnancy, birth and motherhood. Because you and your baby deserve nothing but the very best.
“It is not only that we want to bring about an easy labour, without risking injury to the mother or the child; we must go further. We must understand that childbirth is fundamentally a spiritual, as well as a physical, achievement. The birth of a child is the ultimate perfection of human love” – Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, 1953
Dr. Grantly Dick-Read was the grandfather of Hypnobirthing – the original founder of its concept. Though Hypnobirthing’s philosophy is tied to the way that birthing was practiced in ancient times (as a celebration of life) its practical origin lies in the work of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read. He was the first professional of modern obstetrics to introduce pain-free birth (a revolutionary thought in the 1920s) and the “Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome” theory upon which Hypnobirthing stands. Though he didn’t live to receive respect for his work during his lifetime, his findings have been validated by multiple studies of hormonal orchestration during labour and the power of the human brain. He was right – empowering, pain-free, joyful birth is, indeed, possible. Find out how it works:
Learning to practice Hypnobirthing allows you to experience a relaxed pregnancy and eliminate fears well before your baby’s birth. It empowers you and your partner in knowing pregnancy and childbirth are both normal and natural, and your body has been perfectly designed to perform the miracle of birth. Using auto-hypnosis during labour allows you to enter a deeply relaxed state where your body can let go and open while your brain remains tranquil and peaceful. As a result, you and your baby feel calm, yet energized, ready to get to know each other through the lovely act of bonding and breastfeeding. Find out more >>>
The placenta benefits the new mother by supplying incredibly rich iron, amnio acids and essential fats which is the perfect replenishment following birth. Stems cells and growth factors in the placenta play a key role in healing the wound left inside the uterus after birth by the separation of the placenta from the uterine wall, further preventing postpartum hemorrhage. And last, but certainly not least, placenta contains hormones. Unlike synthetic hormones, these are natural hormones uniquely made by your body for you. Reintroducing these hormones to your system boosts your energy and milk supply, strengthens bonding, and eases postpartum hormonal fluctuations, hence reducing the odds of postpartum depression.
