If you are expecting a baby in the next few months and you’re looking for a calm and positive birth experience, then book yourself onto our Online Antenatal Course, as part of our Full Membership package.
The expectant mum and her birth partner will learn practical tips to stay relaxed, focused and positive in late pregnancy, labour and birth and they will come away completely informed about the possible scenarios that may arise during labour; so that they know how to make decisions wisely that are right for both mum and baby.
Each week we like to bring to you a video of positive birth experiences.
This week we share the interview that Paula Lane gave in 2017 following her hypnobirthing course with Katharine Graves herself.
Magical Baby Moments has partnered with Movement for Modern Life to bring to you pregnancy and postnatal videos that you can do in the comfort of your own home.
As a hypnobirthing teacher, one of the important elements that we state to expectant parents is the power of movement during labour. We encourage all labouring mums, to be as mobile as they can be during labour (this notion of sitting on a bed waiting for baby to pop out is a nonsense). Being on a bed, for prolonged periods of time, is the worst thing you could possibly do.
Every woman is entitled to have the birth that is right for her. However, this often is NOT the case. After 8.5 months of caring and nurturing their baby on their own, suddenly the team of caregivers around her — usually midwives or obstetricians — is suggesting ‘plans of action’ should this baby not arrive ‘on time’. When really, in most cases, there is no medical reason or need to rush baby out. And there certainly isn’t any need for human meddling, which invariably leads to a medicated and uncomfortable birth.
