How do we compare to hypnobirthing?

We had a great question on our facebook discussion board the other day from Leigh.

-> Your programme sounds very very like hypnobirthing mixed around……??

Well, for starters, the term ‘hypnobirthing‘ is a generic term used to refer to any hypnosis for childbirth, so the question really is ‘which hypnobirthing programme’?

It’s true that we have the same underlying philosophy as other hypnobirthing programmes such as ‘HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method(R)’, Mindful Mamma hypnobirthing, Natal Hypnobirthing and ‘Hypnobirthing Original Method(R)’ – i.e. that childbirth need not be painful.

We also believe that it is fear and tension which interfere with birth, causing longer labour and labour pain.

But then, this idea was not new.

It was British obstetrician, Dr Grantly Dick-Read (1890–1959, and first president of the National Childbirth Trust here in the UK), who first proposed the idea in his 1933 book “Childbirth Without Fear”.

Now, we’re not going to knock other hypnobirthing programmes, because they also work, and they have a lot of supporters worldwide.

We are Cognitive Hypnotherapists by trade. And whilst traditional hypnosis techniques work well for lots of people, the cognitive approaches to hypnotherapy are being scientifically proven to work even better.

So, rather than just blindly following the herd (and wanting the best approach for our own births!), we decided to see if we could do it our way. Especially the fear removal side of things, which is at the core of the philosophy of natural birth.

Now, because of our similar philosophy, we’re pretty sure our programme would fit someone who has done another form of hypnobirthing before, or heard good things about it.

So why would someone choose little old us instead?

Well, for starters, you can download our programme and learn at your own pace at home. With many of the other hypnobirthing approaches, you have to pay out for a hypnobirthing class to get all the fear removal stuff.

You also get a 60 day, no hassle and no quibble money back guarantee from us. Try asking your HypnoBirthing(R) practitioner for that!

Bye for now,

Ps – our programme is now open again for May. Remember, we only have around 50 spots available each month, so if you would like to become a Blissful Birther this month, now is the best time to do it.
