The Nowbaby Hypnobirthing Course
Nowbaby designed this course to support you to keep calm and relaxed, to breathe and to ‘enjoy’ your birth. It is designed to fill you with knowledge about the birth process, fill you with confidence, eliminate fear and to support you through the intensity of the surges (contractions).
This programme is instructed by Marley Hall (Midwife Marley) who is a leading UK midwife, author, speaker, hypnobirthing expert and mother of 5. The knowledge you will gain from the course will help you to make your own informed decisions about your birth and provide you will a range of tools that you can practice with at home in preparation for the day you will meet your baby. The crucial techniques essential to hypnobirthing include guided meditations, visualisations, breathing and several others that you practise at home.
What you will learn
In addition to these techniques, you learn about the normal physiology of birth, setting the environment, the role of the birth partner, preparing your body for the big day, making informed decisions and much more. Once you piece this all together as you go through the course, you will be well on your way to having a real positive experience that you can look forward to.
Hypnobirthing methods are traditionally used for those who are working towards having an unmedicated natural birth but the truth is, being able to get yourself into a relaxed, calm and confident state during any birth, whether that be an induction, an assisted birth or even a c-section, will have a positive effect on both you and your baby.
