HypnoBirthing and the Birth Partner – How to Not Feel Like a Spare Part!

HypnoBirthing and the Birth Partner – How to Not Feel Like a Spare Part!

Birth Partners are a big part of HypnoBirthing courses too!

As a Clinical Hypnotherapist and HypnoBirthing Specialist based in Saltash, Plymouth and Tavistock, one thing I love about the HypnoBirthing course is how involved birth partners are in the process.

The most common reasons for attending a course is to learn how to birth calmly and gently but also to be able to learn tools and techniques and reduce any anxieties surrounding the birth. After all, we prepare for big events like marathons and spend a huge amount of money on prams, cots etc so why not invest in a course that will help you not only learn a great deal amount about birth, babies and the early days but will help bond you and your partner together and prepare for what may be the biggest day of your lives?

Birth partners often tell me that after they’ve taken a HypnoBirthing course they feel so empowered to support their partner both before and during the birth. HypnoBirthing encourages the birth partner to be actively involved in supporting and advocating for mum and can be an incredible bonding experience. 

The course covers many ideas for support including advocating, coaching, providing comfort, massage techniques and preparation. We also cover bonding with baby both during pregnancy and once baby is here as well as supporting mum during those first important weeks.

Read on for just two testimonials from happy birth partners who attended births in Derriford Hospital, Plymouth and Truro Birth Centre:

“When Sam and I found out we were pregnant we chose to explore the HypnoBirthing route and found that it was exactly what we needed to help us in pregnancy and to prepare for the birth of our son.

Unfortunately the classes we signed up to fell through and we thought we’d miss out on this incredible and beautiful approach to birthing but thankfully Laura stepped in and took us on at short notice and on the weekends when she could be enjoying her own family. The course has been nothing short of brilliant and I have been enlightened in so many ways that I am now thoroughly looking forwards to our birth and completely confident I can support my partner.

Laura has been amazing from start to finish and I cannot speak highly enough of her. Kind, Patient, Happy to help and so much more.

I’m excited and happy to have had Laura with us through this experience and will miss our sessions and Laura’s experience, knowledge and friendship.

If you are looking for HypnoBirthing look no further. Laura is fantastic.” Tom

“My partner and I attended hypnobirthing sessions with Laura, these really helped to build our confidence and reduce our anxieties prior to the birth of our daughter.

Laura’s sessions were calm, welcoming and the salted caramel flapjacks weren’t bad either!

I would certainly.recommend Hilltop Hypnotherapy if you have any interest in trying hypnobirthing.” Ian
