Birth Hypnobirthing

Can I do Hypnobirthing on my own?

Yes, it is possible to teach yourself hypnobirthing. Maggie Howell taught herself for the birth of her first son in 2000.

The key areas to focus on are

  • really think about what you want for your birth – rather than what you don’t want
  • think about and practice mental imagery that you find safe and relaxing
  • think about ways you like to relax and use visualisation or music to help you get into a deeply relaxed state
  • create a list of positive suggestions regarding the birth ie how you want to feel, what you want to (post hypnotic suggestions)
  • write your own hypnosis script
  • add in your relaxation, visualisation imagery, and positive suggestions regarding the rest of your pregnancy and birth
  • record your script
  • Listen to your recording at least 3 times a week from 32 weeks onwards.

This is the same process that was used to create the Natal Hypnotherapy hypnobirthing audio tracks
