Affiliated with the HypnoBirthing® Institute
HypnoBirthing® is as much as philosophy as it is a technique. It is a rewarding, relaxing, stress‐free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of calm and joy. When a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally, and spiritually, she can experience that sort of joy, birthing her baby in an easier, more comfortable manner. Through a well‐thought‐out program of deep relaxation, breathing, visualization, affirmations, and education HypnoBirthing® returns to a woman the art of birthing in a way that allows her to summon her natural birthing instincts and to birth her baby in safety and with ease.
Mothers were asked to rate a series of statements about how they perceived HypnoBirthing benefitted them. These are the percentages who agreed or strongly agreed.
Between November 2010and May 2014, the HypnoBirthing Institute received 1,504 Parents’ Birth Reports from United States.
