Frequently Asked Questions

Questions people often ask

 

Should I do an NCT course or NHS ante-natal course as well as Hypnobirthing?

The course offered by Little Owl is a complete ante-natal training. It covers all aspects of pregnency and birth, as well as teaching the techniques of Hypnobirthing. However, it is up to you which other courses you would like to attend.

 

Will I be hypnotised like you see on TV and the stage?

No! It is not possible to make someone do what they don't want to do, in fact Hypnotherapy and Hypnobirthing techniques won't work very well on someone who does not wish to be effected.

Hypnobirthing is not about going into a trance. It is about practicing deep relaxation so that you are able to stay calm and focused during labour and birth.

 

I work during the week, can I take classes during the evenings or at the weekend?

Yes. Both the private 1 to 1 classes, and the skype/phone course, are taught at a time to suit you.

 

I am having a planned Cesarean, so I guess there is no point doing Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing is always useful, regardless of the type of birth you have. It has a big effect on both pregnancy and birth, and often parents say how calm and relaxed their baby is after birth. Did you know that there is such a thing as a Natural Cesarean Section? Involving a more Mother and Baby centered approach to the operation.

 

I can't decide where to have my birth. Does Hypnobirthing work wherever you have your baby?

The techniques that are taught work just as well whether you choose to have a home birth, go to a Birth Centre or to Hospital. Hypnobirthing provides you with all the tools you need to have the best possible birth.

 

I want to know the facts about pregnancy and birth, will I learn this doing Hypnobirthing?

Yes, the course teaches what to expect during pregnancy and birth, and what decisions expectant parents may need to take.
