We know you have many choices and many decisions to make for your birthing experience. You have choices in selecting your care provider; you have choices in selecting the environment in which you will bring your baby into the world. Another important choice is that of the childbirth education classes you will choose to prepare for the birth of your baby.
For most of their lives, women have been inundated with the negative stories of other women’s birth experiences. Everyone, from their mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends, and even strangers, wants to tell them the horrors of giving birth. They have been conditioned to believe that excruciating pain is associated with labour; and because of this, women today hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth. This extreme fear causes their bodies to become tense, and that tension prohibits their bodies from easily performing a normal physiological function. The result is exactly what they feared most–long, painful birthing or unnecessary intervention.
People who are drawn to HypnoBirthing® have long been searching for a way to give birth confidently and as calmly, safely, and gently as possible, whether they have chosen to birth in a hospital, a birthing centre or at home. Until HypnoBirthing®, this kind of birthing seemed almost seemed unattainable for the general population.
Through a very simple program of self-hypnosis and education, healthy, low-risk women, as well as women who need medical assistance because of special circumstances, learn to dismiss fear-based stories, misinformation, and birthing myths; and they are helped to see birth as normal. They learn to trust that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world in the calm and gentle way that Nature intended.
I’ve been a Labour & Birthing nurse for 17 years; and after attending HypnoBirthings, I’ll never look at birth in the same light. It’s incredible.
Cecilia masterminded Mamas to be dedicated to the principles and philosophy of gentle pregnancy, birth and mothering. HypnoBirthing® philosophy and techniques espouse those precisely with it’s mother-directed birthing process. She is fully a certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner with HypnoBirthing® the Mongan Method, a Master Practitioner of Hypnotherapy, Advanced Practitioner of Life Coaching, Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming and qualified in Natural Nutrition. She HypnoBirthed through her own 6.5 hour labour and natural water birth (drug free). Cecilia is a mother with a mission to support and lovingly educate others on integrated health choices, natural birth and creating a holistic lifestyle for ourselves and our whole family. It all however has to start somewhere and where better than with a calm, gentle entry into the world.
