How HypnoBirthing Helped Me

I went from not knowing what to expect from birth and having awful images in my head about what birth was supposed to be, to feeling confident and empowered; trusting my body's ability to birth. I have had two amazing births and am currently pregnant with my third. My first was born in The Netherlands, the second in Malaga, Spain, and my third little one will also be born here in Malaga.

In my practice, I share from my experience as a HypnoBirthing mom as well as from the perspective of a HypnoBirthing practitioner. This makes my course rounded and rich. While theory is valuable, practical experience enables me to share the information with greater depth and understanding.

Do you recognize yourself in this;

First prenatal visit in Spain, difficulties speaking to your doctor as a foreigner

Your appointment with your healthcare provider is today. Your heart sinks to your boots. You want a natural birth without interventions or medication, but you find it hard to talk to your healthcare provider. They already assume so much that you will opt for pain medication that it didn´t even really come up as a question. When you said you want a natural birth they just stared at you. You are worried; ¨How do I go into the conversation about this? How do I make clear what I want? And how do I make sure I am taken seriously?¨

You have no clue what is normal or desirable during pregnancy and birth, let alone here in Spain where you don´t fully speak the language and don´t know how the maternity system works or what is allowed in pregnancy and birth! You are afraid you miss important information.

Ever since you became pregnant, horror birth stories have been flying around your ears. As if suddenly is written on your forehead; dump your birth trauma here. You are sure you want birth to be different. ¨It must be possible to have a positive birth experience, right?!?¨ You think to yourself, ¨But how? Where to start?¨ You have no idea and that makes you feel insecure.

Hanging up on your friend, panic breaks out! She said very sweetly that she thinks it's so brave of you to go for a natural birth without pain relieve. During the conversation, you still felt very determined about it, but now doubts strike! Your thoughts start racing; ¨Help, I actually have no idea how to obtain a natural birth and certainly not here in Spain! What can I expect?¨ Surrounded by questions you start to feel insecure and start doubting if this is something you really want and can do.

After a long day, you finally lie in bed, happy to rest your feet for a while. Now that you have time to unwind, the staring contest with your ceiling begins and your thoughts start haunting you... ¨Can I handle this? I do say I want a natural birth, but actually I don't know if I can handle it at all! What if I can't relax at all? What if my pain becomes too much for me anyway? I don't have such a high pain threshold. What if I can't handle it? Do I agree to pain relieve anyway? What can I do if I don't want medication? What if I go over time? Are there natural ways to induce birth?¨ You have so many questions about birth, you feel overwhelmed. And then you're 2 hours on and still staring at your ceiling, while you so desperately need your sleep right now. Off to the toilet again.…

The worst thing that could happen?

Your doctor decides for you what is best, stripping away your control over your pregnancy and birth. It makes you feel like your pregnancy is being taken over, and things are happening to you rather than with you. If this trend continues, the entire birthing process will be taken out of your hands too, leaving you feeling helpless and powerless. You might even end up with the very thing you don’t wish for: difficulties attaching to your baby or your baby to you due to a challenging childbirth, challenges with the start of breastfeeding due to sedation, difficult and long healing process due to a cesarean, birth trauma, postnatal depression or a lifelong feeling of guilt and regret. The dream of a positive start and beautiful birthing experience for both you and your baby slips away. Remember, you don’t get a trial run, no do-over for the childbirth of this child.

The Antenatal HypnoBirthing Course will provide you with everything you need to feel prepared for birth, including how to navigate the Spanish maternity system, cope with pain, and achieve the positive birthing experience you desire.
