Hypnobirthing now available at Barnsley Hospital

Having a comfortable, relaxing birth is one of the top priorities of mums-to-be. And that’s why Barnsley Hospital has introduced a brand new hypnobirthing service.

Hypnobirthing is a complete birth education programme which aims to put mothers and the fathers in control of the birth of their child.

The techniques allow the mother to use her natural instincts and help her to have her baby easily in an atmosphere of calm. Severe discomfort does not need to be part of labour and childbirth.

Hypnobirthing is intended to help expectant mums have the most positive childbirth possible, and can be used whatever kind of birth they’re planning – homebirth, hospital or birthing centre. Research has shown that women who use the techniques have less caesarean sections, less pre term labours and less postnatal depression.

Following a successful pilot programme in 2009 with 28 couples, it was agreed to incorporate hypnobirthing into the hospital’s services. Seven Barnsley Hospital midwives have now completed the training to become specialist practitioners.

Angela Healey the first hypnobirthing practitioner at Barnsley Hospital, said, “This is a brand new service for the people of Barnsley and beyond. We are delighted that we can now offer regular hypnobirthing programmes which will extend the choices for our mums-to-be.”

Hypnobirthing includes breathing exercises and visualization, to help keep the expecting mother relaxed and less anxious. Kate had her husband, Prince William by her side to support, reassure and coach her during the labor. This must have made it easy for Kate, the Mirror reported.
Actress Jessica Alba also used hypnobirthing during the birth of her daughter, Honor.
Kate and William welcomed their little prince, July 22 at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, where William and Prince Harry were born. The royal baby, who weighed 8lb 6oz, at the time of the birth, was named Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.
The Duchess was hailed by mothers to step out with post-baby bump. “In a couple of minutes on the steps of the Lindo Wing Kate has done more for new mums’ self-esteem than any other role model,” Siobhan Freegard, founder of the British website Netmums, told Sykes.
After the delivery, the uterus takes time to go back to its original shape. This makes a woman look around six months pregnant even after giving birth. “One of the most surprising things to a first-time mom is that her belly doesn’t immediately go back to normal after the baby comes out!” said Dr. Jennifer Ashton, an OB-GYN and senior medical contributor for ABC News. “Rest assured this is totally normal and, with time, things can and do go back to their original shape.”

Jessica Alba over HypnoBirthing®:


Toen Jessica Alba zwanger was wist ze precies hoe ze de zenuwen voor haar tweede bevalling onder bedwang kon houden. De toen 30-jarige actrice had haar rust gevonden door een cursus HypnoBirthing® te volgen.

“Ik raad iedereen lessen over HypnoBirthing® aan. Het maakt je rustig”, vertelde Alba destijds aan het Amerikaanse tijdschrift Us Weekly.
