‘Birth Is NOT Supposed To Hurt’: Fact Or Fiction?
North London expectant couples are discovering little known birth secrets and are preparing for and planning their births based on the proven FACT that ‘BIRTH IS NOT SUPPOSED TO HURT’ . By using simple birthing facts and techniques, they are having the calm, gentle, pain-free births that nature intended – without even asking for chemical pain-relief.
Medical experts have known for years that there is nothing in the physiology of birth to indicate that pain is nature’s birth plan. The muscles of the womb have very few pain receptors and when the birth muscles work without tension, there is no resistance and no source of pain. In fact all doctors know that pain is nature’s way of signalling dysfunction. As long as muscles are used for their intended function, there is no pain. And yet, for generations, women have been led to believe that their bodies are destined to malfunction.
Sam and Patrick of Enfield attended a series of classes with Christine Hill, experienced local HypnoBirthing Practitioner, and learnt how women who are anxious and fearful during their labours experience tension and resistance, which results in very real pain . With Patrick’s help, Sam learnt to relax deeply and re-programme her mind not to fear birth and to focus on a positive experience. Sam says ‘Due to working with my surges (contractions) and breathing with them rather than against them, not only was the 'pain' diminished but I suffered no tearing or stitches.... honestly, I'd happily do it again tomorrow!’
Helen of Southgate says that the HypnoBirthing education they received was a great success. ‘I laboured and got to full dilation, with no need for pain relief, staying in control and working with my body.’
Katie of Winchmore Hill chose HypnoBirthing for their second baby’s birth, because they were seeking a better birth experience than first time round. Katie’s HypnoBirth was completely different: about 9 hours of labour and no pain relief needed, most of it spent at home with her young son.
