You’re Going to Be a Dad!
Congratulations and welcome to HypnoBirthing.
This is such an exciting time for you both, and we know you are probably feeling a little under-prepared at this time, and also wondering what’s involved in being a great birth partner, and what ‘HypnoBirthing’ is all about! So, we want to share with you what other new dad’s are saying and what you can expect!
The knowledge gained from HypnoBirthing will help you approach the birth of your baby with confidence and excitement – and give you a role to play with a toolbox of techniques, to ensure you are a part of this wonderful experience.
HypnoBirthing dads will learn:
- How to be intimately involved in the labour and birth of your baby and how you can help your partner stay focused and grounded. Your physical and emotional support is crucial as the hospital midwife will have other women to support and have paperwork, blood pressure, baby monitoring and other tasks to get through.
- Techniques to support mum during labour, and guide her through labour with your voice and your touch.You will be able to help with breathing techniques for the different stages of labour, offer massage and help with different labour and birth positions.
- How to avoid unnecessary routine procedures and what to ask if medical intervention is needed so you stay fully in control of the decision-making process surrounding the birth of your baby. You will be the advocate, spokesperson and guide to lead the birth in a direction that is safe, and not intervened with unnecessarily.
- That through participating in the classes, and practice at home, you will enhance your connection and bond deeply with your baby and partner.
