What you get in a hypnobirthing class that you won’t find in many other antenatal classes is the opportunity to go deep within yourself to find and unlock that inner power, that you as a woman have within in you. This is the power that makes you who you are, this is the power that society, and years of living and trying to fit in with our peers has so often been pushed down and away by our fears and misunderstanding about ourselves.
It is the power, that as a birthing woman, you may need to find to just keep going a few more minutes for the natural course of labour to continue; it is the power to know that when things aren't going according to plan, you have it in you to ask the right questions and, that if you decide to, it is OK to hand over to the professionals; it is the power to know that if you do, you aren't doing yourself or your baby a disservice by not sticking to your original plan; it is the power, that as a new mum, when breastfeeding isn't quite as easy as you thought it would be you can keep going; it’s the power to trust your instinct, that you will call on in the darkest days, when your baby won’t sleep, and you have everyone telling you what you ‘should’ be doing and it’s the power to (politely) ignore them.
I could go on, but hopefully you get what I am talking about now. Find and unlock that power, that you already have in you. It’s there, I promise, we all have it. We just need to guidance, encouragement and support to bring it out and let it grow. Hypnobirthing classes do that.
What a wonderful story you will be able to tell your baby about his or her birth. Their birthday won’t just be the day you brought them into the world, which of course is such a special day in itself, it will also be the day you brought your inner goddess out, in the most powerful way a woman can.
I’ve been there, and it changed me. Be a Birth Goddess!
