HypnoBirthing® is very much for both parents rather than just the expectant mum. Fathers are a very important part of the HypnoBirthing process and dads often thank me for giving them a role during the pregnancy and the birth itself – no more standing in the corner of the delivery room wondering what to do with themselves! Anyway, as before, I think a HypnoBirthing® dad can explain this far better than me so I’m going to hand over to Nof, very proud father of Santino:
Gill and I are the proud parents of Santino.
Prior to the birth we were bombarded by our friends’ birth stories which included 36 hour labour, all manner of drugs and potions, and lots and lots of pain and screaming!
Gill’s labour lasted for just seven hours. I’m in no doubt that this was due to the breathing exercises and visualisation learnt during Helen’s HypnoBirthing® classes.
As the Dad, it was amazing to feel part of the whole experience and to help keep Gill focused on her breathing.
Santino was born alert and calm with no distress. It is absolutely true that a baby will pick up on their mother’s anxieties.
Incidentally, I use the techniques gained during our HypnoBirthing® sessions for everyday life
Helen was brilliant and I have no hesitation in recommending her for HypnoBirthing®.
