Pregnancy relaxation and hypnobirthing retreat

Pregnancy relaxation and hypnobirthing retreat

Posted on behalf of HypnobirthingHub

Join thousands of mothers worldwide who have discovered the joys of a calm relaxed birth whilst experiencing a rejuvenating weekend away with your birth partner. We offer a unique weekend residential course to learn and practice hypnobirthing skills in the comfort of a beautiful cottage within walking distance of Bournemouth's stunning beaches. Hypnobirthing is being talked about a lot at the moment particularly with royals Megan and Harry advising they will be using it for their pregnancy and birth. Here at HypnobirthingHub we aim to take the fear out of birth by delivering better birth stories.

What is hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is a complete prenatal course which prepares you for pregnancy, birth and beyond. You will learn relaxation and breathing techniques to help you have a calmer birth and reduce pain. It is however, so much more than this. The skills you learn will last a lifetime as they enable you to release your fears and build self-confidence. We teach the physiological process of birth so that you can learn to trust your body. Nature designed you to give birth efficiently and and comfortably and hypnobirthing shows you how.

What are the benefits?

  • Hypnobirthing will give you a tool kit of techniques to help you relax, to remain calm and focused and really understand how the body is designed to give birth.

  • The techniques are adaptable and can benefit most birth stories including c-sections.

  • It can shorten labour and reduce the need for pain relief.

  • It can reduce the risk of tearing and pelvic floor damage.

  • You will feel confident, in control and empowered to ask for what you want.

  • If your birth partner is also practising the techniques it will enhance the communication between you and they play a really important supporting role throughout each stage.

  • Your baby will have a calm birth and often maintains this calmness afterwards which aids with sleeping and feeding.

  • We also discuss what happens after birth and how to look after yourselves as a family to ensure everyone feels supported and cared for.

Why learn at a class?
You'll get to meet other expectant parents and share experiences with them.
You will be working with a qualified practitioner and as a hypnotherapist and hypnobirthing teacher I will teach you the techniques of hypnosis in a way that works for you I can show how to use the techniques as effectively as possible during pregnancy and beyond and you will have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like and be able to practice your new skills.
There is focus on both you and your partner so that you are equally involved in the birth process. This includes post natal support too with a focus on you as parents but also on the special family connections that are fundamental in healthy relationships.

What does the weekend include?

There is space for three mums and their birth partners to enjoy a relaxing weekend away staying in a stunning detached period cottage within walking distance of Bournemouth's seven mile stretch of unspoilt coastline. The cottage was completely refurbished in July 2018 and you can stay for two nights starting on the Friday night. Breakfast and lunch is included within the package leaving you free to explore the beautiful sandy beaches and surrounding area in the evenings.

A great benefit of coming to stay at The Lodge is that you can really focus on time with your birth partner and immerse yourselves in the experience whilst learning skills which will last a lifetime.
The course runs across Saturday and Sunday and follows the KGH programme. It is recommended for those who are 20-34 weeks pregnant but you can join at any time.
