What is Hypnobirthing with Indigo Orca?

Hypnobirthing is a complete Antenatal course…That’s it! Nothing weird. Just a complete Antenatal course that will leave you feeling informed, empowered and ready for a positive birth. You won’t need to attend any other Antenatal course (unless you want to!).

Hypnobirthing can help:

  • Reduce the need to intervention
  • Reduce induction rates
  • Reduce C-Section rates
  • Reduce anxiety levels
  • Reduce pain experienced during birth
  • Reduce length of labour
  • Reduce epidural rate

To summarise, Hypnobirthing allows you to be calm and relaxed throughout your journey towards the birth of your baby. It allows you to give birth without fear and tension, allowing your body and muscles to function as nature intended. This course will leave you feeling informed and prepared to handle any twists and turns that your birth may take in a calm, relaxed and positive way.

What can I expect from the course?

A Hypnobirthing course with Indigo Orca will teach you using the Calm Birth Method where you will:

  • Learn the tools you need for a calm and confident birth
  • Learn the power of affirmations, visualisations and relaxation during pregnancy and labour
  • Learn and practice three MUST HAVE breathing techniques for labour
  • Learn all of the things you want to know about the birth process (the science, the evidence, and the practicalities)
  • Leave feeling informed and empowered and it works alongside OR instead of any other antenatal classes you choose to take
  • Be able to discuss birth and ask any questions you may have 
  • Receive ongoing support after the course during the lead up to the birth. If you have any questions, I am still here for you

Why Should I choose Hypnobirthing?

Does the idea of giving birth fill you with fear and make you want to pretend that it isn’t happening? Feeling unsure about what to expect and scared that you might not be able to handle the pain of birth when you can’t even handle your once a year, pre-holiday bikini wax? 

Let’s be honest, it’s not surprising that you feel like this. I felt exactly the same way too!

Since you were a young girl, so many things around you have taught you to be frightened of birth and how painful it’s going to be. From every birth in a soap opera or sitcom, to the stories you read in the papers, even your friends and families telling your stories about birth. They are all telling you that birth is hard, birth is painful, and birth is dramatic.

What if I told you that there is another way?

A way where you could learn that birth can be calm.
A way where you could learn powerful tools and techniques which will guide you towards experiencing a positive birth. 
A way where you could learn that birth could even be orgasmic (crazy I know but it is true. If you don’t believe me, look it up!)

The secret to feeling informed, prepared, empowered and confident about giving birth is Hypnobirthing.

Hypnobirthing will teach you the tools and skills you need to replace your fears and anxiety with a CALM confidence

Hypnobirthing will help you feel fully prepared to deal with whatever twists and turns your birth may take.

It will teach you to take back the power and make confident and informed decisions about where and how you would like to give birth.  

Hypnobirthing will even teach you the tools you need to make your contractions less painful or even pain free!

I strongly believe that every woman deserves to have a calm and positive experience of birth and I also believe that every baby deserves to be brought into this world in a calm and positive way and I believe that hypnobirthing is the answer to that.
