Because the basis for a calm and peaceful birth is inside every mammal
Did you know women are, like all other female mammals, programmed to give birth without suffering and in a very natural and gentle way?
Unfortunately, however, the vast majority of women is bombarded with negative ideas and suggestions about birth from a very young age, and therefore see birth as a very difficult and painful process.
This negative approach causes tension, fear and anxiety during labor this will trigger the so called "fear response" in the body: blood is deviated from the uterus and the release of labor hormones is disturbed. That leads to an extremely long and difficult labor.
But believe me: it's NOT meant to be like that.
Hypnobirthing helps to direct the mind and the body to a calm, healthy and natural birth by changing this negative vision and, therefore, preventing the creation of tension and anxiety during the process. This way, instead of feeling stressed and anxious, the women feels confident and calm during labor. This will then boost the production of good labor hormones and facilitate the process.
The result: a calm, peaceful and positive birth experience for mother AND baby, which will then carry the impressions of this day for the rest of their lives.
I believe that the right knowledge can transform birth into a beautiful and life changing experience- for mom and for baby
My name is Angela, I'm a biologist and totally passionate about everything surrounding the birth universe. The way mammals can support and give life to their babies has always fascinated me.
I practiced Hypnobirthing myself for the birth of my second daughter. It gave me the opportunity to experience a very calm and focused labor and no pain medication was needed. (you can watch a short video below :-)
In the beginning of 2018 I went to London to study the methodology and became a certified Hypnobirthing instructor. I trained with Katherine Graves, author of The Hypnobirthing Book and head of the KGHypnobirthing method in the United Kingdom.
I truly believe that the right knowledge can transform the way a family experiences birth and along this journey I have been helping couples to achieve a positive birth for their babies.
I'm Brazilian, currently living in the Netherlands.
I hope we can meet soon and I wish you an amazing pregnancy and birth journey!
