Course information Hypnobirthing

"Well begun is half done"

The birth of your child is a unique life event and causes an imprint for the rest of your and your baby’s life. "Well begun is half done " or in other words; good preparation for birth is very important.

What’s extremely important during labour is that you can relax and focus on your breathing. During the course I will teach you deep relaxation-, visualization and breathing techniques.

It is important that body and mind are in balance with each other and free of stress. If a mother is physically, emotionally and mentally relaxed and self-confidence this has a positive effect on the experience and the progress of the delivery. If you are tensed, this can stop further dilation and your body will produce the stress hormone adrenalin which aggravates the pain experience. During the hypnobirthing course you also learn to make any possible fear disappear.

It is essential that all different course forms at Hypnobirthingrandstad are taught by Esther George. She is also a medical midwife, has followed the Master of Science in Midwifery and therefore has a scientific background, which makes the course very practical and the information well substantiated. 

The relaxation-, breathing-, and visualization techniques you learn, are of great importance for a beautiful, relaxed birth experience.

The hypnobirthing techniques will make it possible to achieve immediate relaxation and to maintain being relaxed for as long as you want during birth. You will see, hear and practice these techniques during the course. The support of your birth partner is of great importance here; he/she will have an important and active role during labour. The “light touch massage” which is being taught to him/her will ensure that your body produces endorphins, which reduces the pain experience. Furthermore, you will receive a lot of information about the delivery during the course, so you are fully prepared for giving birth with full self-confidence. For your child it is essential to be born as relaxed as possible.

You will learn special relaxation techniques that will enable you to work together with your baby and body during birth. It is essential to practice these techniques at home, so that your body and mind become conditioned and you can apply them properly during birth.
  • You learn to bring yourself into a deep state of deep relaxation and concentration, so that you can apply it directly during birth. This way your body will produce endorphins (a natural painkiller) in your body, which reduces the pain experience.
  • You learn to eliminate fear, so that the stress hormone adrenalin also disappears. Adrenalin aggravates the pain experience because the muscles tighten.
  • You gain insight into the functioning of your body during birth and how you can support your body with your positive mindset.
  • You receive nutritional and exercise advice.
  • Your (birth) partner will be taught to apply "light touch massage" to you. This also makes endorphins thus the pain experience will be less.
  • You will learn to trust your own knowledge and ability, allowing you to enter your birth confidently.
  • We make / discuss your birth plan.
The difference between the one-day and the four-day course is that with the four-day course you have more time in between to let the information settle and to learn the exercises. If you are almost due or short on time, a one-day course may be more desirable.
