Where is your head at right now in relation to your baby's birth?
Is it buried in the sand? Is it full of scary stories about what can go wrong? Are you worrying about whether you can cope with the pain or ‘handle it’ if you need intervention?
The course is so empowering and not at all ‘hippy’. If you are in two minds about attending this course I would say to definitely go for it, and you won’t find a better person to help you along your own birth story. I will be forever grateful for all you have done for me, my partner and my perfect little lady.
Maybe you are thinking “I better not do a course like The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme because they are going to tell me that I can’t have an epidural, or that I won’t need it because I won’t feel any pain if I just do as they say?”
Perhaps you are frightened of setting yourself up because you’ve heard that if hypnobirthing goes well then it’s like a dream come true, but if it goes badly then you are going to feel like you’ve failed.
Potentially all of these kinds of thoughts have got you so worked up, that you are too scared to even think about getting prepared for birth, and are wondering if it’s just better to see how it all goes on the day.
Hold those thoughts for a moment, have the courage to lift your head out of the sand for just a few moments, and have a read and see if what The Wise Hippo has to offer you is different to what you might be thinking.
'The course helped give my partner a clear role in how to support me in the birth. He loved the course and it helped us both understand how important his role was. He was brilliant and I was able to cope well with every twist and turn to have the right birth on the day. I can't recommend enough'
Because here’s the thing…
Whilst The Wise Hippo may use hypnosis as part of its suite of tools and techniques it doesn’t mean that it has the same view on birth as traditional hypnobirthing.
Because what we want for you is to have THE RIGHT BIRTH ON THE DAY!
So let’s start there.
What is the 'right birth on the day'?
Focussing on having The Right Birth on the Day provides you with the opportunity to create a positive mindset about birth, whilst building up your ability to make sure that everything that happens on the day (and beforehand if necessary) is what you believe is the right course of action for you to take.
You might wonder why this approach is so important, after-all traditional hypnobirthing will tell you never to focus on what could go wrong. It is because that isn’t realistic as life throws us curve balls sometimes doesn’t it? It doesn’t matter how positively you focus on your birth, how much practice you do or how much you plan, sometimes things don’t go the way you hoped they would.
The important thing for you to understand in relation to this is that is not your fault.
Yes, it can absolutely help your chances of having the birth you wish for if you have a positive mindset about birth. Yes, you will enable your body and baby to work at their best if you learn how to be calm and relaxed during labour. Yes, you will have a better chance of staying in control of your birth if you plan ahead of time and know how to communicate in a useful way with your medical care givers.
It doesn’t stop the curve balls though.
'By gaining more knowledge about the whole process we felt more confident and more in control when our baby was born. Even though we didn't get the exact birth experience we wanted, we were prepared for the one we got'
Mindi & Dan
However, and this is really important for you to take notice of, even when the curve balls turn up you can use the tools and techniques you’ve learnt to remain emotionally in control. You can make sure that you ask all of the right questions of your medical caregivers, so that you fully understand all of the decisions that you make, which means that you will be able to look back on our baby’s birth no matter how it turns out on the day and know it was right for you and your baby.
If this is all resonating with you then let’s dive a bit deeper now into The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme.
We bet you'll be Blown Away..
