Benefits of Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing makes a positive difference to birth for both you and your baby:


  • You are likely to experience a more comfortable birth.

  • The length of labour is often much shorter.

  • Less drugs and medical intervention are needed (including ventouse, forceps and caesarean births).

  • A calm and gentle birth for you, is also a calm and gentle birth for your baby! Your baby will be born into a calm and relaxed environment; alert and ready to bond with you as nature intended.

  • Reduced incidence of perineal trauma/tearing.

  • Mums recover physically much more quickly.

  • Your birth partner will learn how to support you and have a central and active role in the birth. 

  • The benefits to you are obvious, but the long term benefits to your baby cannot be over-estimated. A baby who enters the world drug-free, alert and calm, and who is welcomed into a mother’s arms who is also alert, loving and confident, starts life and forms its first relationship in this world in the best possible way.  

“I would 100% recommend the amazing Rachel and her hypnobirthing course. After having a previous labour which resulted in c-section, I wanted to learn how to feel in control and calm for this labour. Through using all of the techniques which I learnt on the course, I had an amazing natural birth. If you’re undecided about whether to book a course with Rachel, don’t think twice. It’s totally worth it. Your labour experience stays with you forever so why not give yourself the best chance of having a nice experience?” – Ellen Murray (client pic above)
