What is Mindful Hypnobirth?

The New Mindful Hypnobirth Course by Julie teaches the belief that woman can experience birth through the natural flow and rhythm of their labouring body; to release birthing over to their mind and body and to trust their body to function as it was intended to.

These are the courses midwives bring their own partners to truly prepare them in the easiest, most positive way, so they know what to do and say during labour.

The course explains the instinctual mind and body connection in childbirth and how a woman’s emotional state influences the birth both mentally and physically.

The program is founded on research from neuroscience, midwifery, obstetrics and epigenetics; and uses the extensive understanding of the relaxation response and its influence on birth.

The New Mindful Hypnobirth is a pre-natal education program for pregnant couples preparing for a positive birth experience no matter how the birth unfolds. The aim of the program is to help pregnant couples attending the classes eliminate the fear, experienced by many, in relation to their approaching labour and birth.

This amazing course is rich with life skills, women’s birthing wisdom, insightful and inspirational ideas for men and women equally, it’s easy to participate, comfortable, pleasurable, amusing and feels so very worthwhile.

Switch anxiety, fear, self-doubt, worry into confidence, knowledge, understanding, empowerment and self-awareness. Julie’s courses will boost your relationship to yourself and with each other to prepare you well for becoming a family moving forward with wonderful values and goals.

During the course, couples discover how the laboring mother’s body responds physiologically when fear is present, how to prevent it from happening or overcome it if it does occur. They also learn practical skills of Relaxation, Breathing and Creative Visualization which are used during pregnancy, labour, childbirth and beyond.
