When I was pregnant with my first baby, I spent my first trimester absolutely dreading giving birth. As the weeks went by, I felt like I had this shadow looming over my pregnancy. Birth seemed like this unavoidable ordeal I would have to go through, and it was inching ever closer.
Fortunately, my wonderful midwife told me to look into Hypnobirthing. I had never heard of it before. When she saw me give her an odd look, she laughed and promised me that it’s not anywhere near as hippy as it sounds!
Initially I was definitely sceptical. However, I was amazed to discover that Hypnobirthing isn’t hippy at all, but completely scientific and logical. I was hooked!
My husband quickly got on board with how logical and practical it all was, and enjoyed learning the science about how we are actually perfectly designed to give birth. Together we learnt the tools we needed to make our baby’s birth an amazing, positive experience.
