My top tips on how to achieve your own positive birth experience with the hypnobirthing* techniques.
If there's no medical indication that there's something wrong if you or the baby the best thing is to wait. Before that time the baby and your body are simply not ready.
2) PRACTISE & PREPARE
Change takes time! I can't stress this enough. You need to practice the techniques in order get your hypnobirth. About 80% of the work is done before your birthing day. Please practice every day.
3) FIND YOUR TRIBE
Make sure you have people who think and feel the same way about giving birth as you do now. You can do it is by going online social media, find your Positive Birth Movement Group or get Rockstar Birth Magazine. Most of all you need of to find a doctor or midwife that will support you giving birth the way you want.
4) FILL YOUR MIND WITH POSITIVITY
During a hypnobirthing course you changed your conscious mind with all the special techniques and information that has been provided. What you need to do now is work on your subconscious mind. For example, find as many hypnobirthing videos on YouTube and read as many positive birth stories as you can.
Remember; your body is designed to give birth! All you have to do is enjoy this amazing journey you're about to go on. Follow your instinct and whatever you do is right. And most of all, if things don't go to plan, you do not fail! You cannot fail if you put yourself and your baby first.
So stay calm brief and birth in love.
