Birth education may feel like a nice to have, an extra financial investment, especially when you can get it for free from the hospital (if you’re birthing in one of course). And how do you even know if it works??
As for every other big decision in your life, feeling informed will lead you to the path of confidence and capability. The more informed you feel leading up to your birth, the more you can birth from a place of power, and we know this increases birth satisfaction. Independent Birth Education is an efficient way for you to educate yourself and your birth partner.
There can be ulterior motive in hospital classes that helps mould parents to be more compliant with the hospital policy that is not necessarily best for that specific mother and baby.
So if you’re still considering Hypnobirthing but are unsure if it is the research based option you are looking for, here is the research to prove the outcomes are so much better for both Mother and baby:
Here’s what the research has to say about the benefits of Hypnobirthing –
- Significant reduction in the use of epidurals
- Reduced rate of augmentation
- Reduction in emergency caesarean section
- Reduction in length of second stage
- Reduction in perineal trauma
- Reduction in resuscitation of newborn
- Higher 1 minute neonatal Apgar scores
Birthing mothers describe the experience as having:
- A sense of relief and consolation
- Lack of suffering labour pain, changing the feeling of pain into one of pressure
- A decrease in fear of natural childbirth
- Lack of tiredness
- Lack of anxiety.
The real question is, what do you have to lose?
Say yes and prioritise yourself.
