Our Foremothers fought to bring their lovers into the birth space as we moved from woman centered care to medical centered care. Birth is the final act in the ultimate show of love and we want our partners there to experience it with us.
A VBAC is a vaginal birth after Cesarean. In the absence of special circumstances it should be achievable for a the majority of Mama's who have had a Casarean. However you should go into your birth with a lot more tools in your tool kit. HypnoBirthing® can add to your tool kit in many ways.
HypnoBirthing® involves a lot of demystifying child birth and releasing any fears you may have. If you had an emergency Cesarean due to circumstances that happened during birth you may have specific fears around the labouring process that need to be released and healed so you can move forward to a beautiful experience next time around.
The HypnoBIrthing® International program I teach dedicates a session to choosing care givers and talking to them to receive the best outcome for yourself and your baby. Sadly a lot of woman feel that care givers contributed to the circumstances that led to their Cesarean birth. Getting educated on choosing the right care giver and working with them for your birth will help contribute to you having your ideal birth. *As always when I talk about about care givers please call me for a chat before you choose yours and I'm happy to talk to help you make the right choice.
The breathing techniques taught during the program will help you relax and work with your labouring body. They will give you the confidence to trust your body to go with the process and the knowledge that what you are doing is working.
I also teach your partner the above and techniques to help you manage any pain or discomfort you might feel during labour. Early labour may benefit from light touch massage while late stages may require acupressure, thoughtful birth positioning or traditional rebozo techniques to bring you comfort or move a stubborn baby. They will also have the confidence to see you through a very powerful birthing experience after a Cesarean.
If you think HypnoBirthing® is for you please give me a call or send me a message. I would love to answer any questions you might have.
