THE GENTLEBIRTH PROGRAM
Gentlebirth is a unique antenatal class as it offers many tools and techniques as part of a labour toolkit which can be used to have a positive, gentle birth no matter what form that birth may take. Parents can therefore pick and choose which of these tools work best for them rather than been confined to just one technique such as hypnobirthing or breathing exercises. It uses proven brain science techniques such as hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, sports psychology, meditation and mindfulness to help reduce fear, anxiety and pain in labor. These “brain hacking” techniques will help you become relaxed, confident and ready for the birth of your baby no matter what situation may arise on the day. Many GentleBirth moms report that they were so relaxed and confident during labor that care providers do not believe that they are actually in labor until they are examined or the mom starts to push. This is a significant change from the majority of moms who would experience a lot of anxiety and pain in labor.
In addition to the brain hacking techniques the GentleBirth antenatal workshop will go through the various comfort measures you can use such as acupressure, aromatherapy, TENS machines etc. to help reduce pain in labor. Many GentleBirth moms report that when they have used these techniques that they have found the labor pains manageable and many have not required the use of any analgesic during labor. The workshop is for moms and their birth partners and gives the birth partner all the knowledge and information they will need in their their role as birth supporter, facilitator and advocate on this very special day. COVID update: these classes will be either online antenatal classes or in person classes depending on COVID restrictions. See below for more.
The GentleBirth App provides everything you need for a more relaxed positive pregnancy, birth and parenting journey. Each day you’ll be guided through our unique brain training program tailored exactly to your circumstances. You’ll learn simple effective breathing, mindfulness and medical hypnosis techniques that you’ll use long after your baby arrives.
