Positive Gentle Births Are Possible:
How Can HypnoBirthing Help You Achieve Your Birth Goals?
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 labor 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.
Amelia Villada became a HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator with The HypnoBirthing® International teaching the Mongan Method. She has birthed all three of her children using the very techniques she teaches. HypnoBirthing® is a tried and proven method that guides and prepares women and pregnant people in giving birth in a peaceful and calm manner. It is a program that considers the psychological, as well as the physical, well-being of the pregnant parent, their birth partner, and the newborn, independent of context, whether that be in the quiet of a home, a hospital, or a birth center. The HypnoBirthing® program is built around an educational process that includes special breathing, relaxation, visualization, meditative practice, attention to nutrition and positive body toning. Most importantly it fosters an air of mutual respect for the birthing family, as well as the health-care provider in a traditional health-care system or an alternative setting.
