The Benefits of Hypnobirthing

The benefits of hypnobirthing to mums, babies and dads are innumerable, read below to find out some of the main advantages.

To get a more personal view of how hypnobirthing has helped mums have a read of some positive birth stories 

Benefits for the mother
  • A hypnobirthing mother will be relaxed when she is in labour facilitating the production of oxytocin and endorphins, this will help the birthing muscles to work better and without pain. 

  • The hypnobirthing mother will have released all fear prior to going into labour and will calmly face her labour and whatever circumstances may arise. 

  • Hypnobirthing mothers are much less likely to need drugs or have medical intervention during their births

  • A hypnobirthing mother will be well informed about the birth process and about all her options so will feel more in control of the process.

  • Hypnobirthing mothers often have a shorter labour (on average 3 hours shorter)

Benefits for the father
  • A hypnobirthing father will play a very important role in the birth of his baby and may have a much closer bond with his partner and baby as a result. 

  • The father will be  the voice for the mother when she is concentrating on giving birth and will play an active role in (and also benefit from) the relaxation process. 

  • The father will also be well informed and calm (and therefore helpful) when the mother is giving birth.

Benefits for the baby
  • The hypnobirthing baby’s mother is much less likely to want drugs which can pass into the system of the baby, therefore the baby will arrive a lot more alert. 

  • Hypnobirthing babies very often have a high APGAR score. This is the evaluation given to babies just after birth to assess their health.

  • There will be no forced pushing in a hypnobirthing birth so the journey though the birth canal will be much easier making for a more comfortable and stress free experience for the baby. 

  • Hypnobirthing babies are usually much calmer than their non hypnobirthing counterparts.
