What is Hypnosis?

Water birth

Hypnosis is a naturally induced state of relaxed concentration in which we communicate suggestions to our subconscious mind. This part of our mind influences what we think, how we feel and the choices we make.

It can actually control pain. There is no magic to achieving success with self-hypnosis. Almost anyone who chooses to, can reach deep relaxation and redirected focus.

When having your baby with HypnoBirthing, what you experience is similar to the daydreaming or focussing that occurs when engrossed in a book or staring at a fire. You will be conversant and in good spirits - totally relaxed, but fully in control. You will be aware of your body's contractions but will be able to determine the extent to which you feel the surge.

You will experience your birthing in calm relaxation, without the fear and tension that cause pain. Your body's natural anaesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones that create pain, and when it's time for baby to be born, you will be fully awake and involved.


Leanne Jackson | HypnoBirthing Practitioner

I have been in the field of Natural Therapies for many years and although I began as a Naturopath, and originally studied hypnosis to support this, it was the hypnosis that really held my interest.

The more practical experience that I had, the more obvious was the understanding that the mind controlled the physical body and was capable of healing a vast range of illnesses, pain and emotional disturbances.

Pain is an indication that there is something wrong with our body, so I began to ask myself why it should be associated with childbirth, when this is a most natural occurence for a woman's body.


It was a matter of wonderful good fortune that I discovered the HypnoBirthing programme on a visit to the United Kingdom. As I studied it more catefully, I became excited by the concept that birthing can be a painless experience.

"The course is designed to remove all of the old concepts that we have been programmed with over the years, and allows our bodies once again to enjoy the bringing forth of new life in a safe and comfortable way."

What Parents Say...

"How could I believe this when I had gone through, not one but two, long and excruciating labours? I was petrified - then I found HypnoBirthing. This birth took just over four hours. I was relaxed and comfortable all the way. It was wonderful!"

"I was with my wife for the birth of our first child which was a bad experience for us. Most of the techniques we practised from the other course just weren't for us. HypnoBirthing was far more than we had ever hoped for. Our daughter came into the world so easily and in such a calm atmosphere."

What Medical Staff Say...

"This is the way all babies should come into the world. It's beautiful. Keep up the good work"

"I'm a labour and delivery nurse. I work in the field of Obstetrics every day. I can hardly believe my eyes as a I watch HypnoBirthing mothers in labour. It's amazing."

"I've been delivering babies for twenty years, and I've never seen anything like this method. It's incredible."
