The Partner’s Role
You can come to Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing classes on your own, as a couple, or any other birth partner – or any combination of the above!
My aim is always to be sure that the mother who is giving birth has everything she needs inside her head to handle this birth for herself so that she feels in control and confident.
At the same time, your partner or birth supporter can play an invaluable role through their calm presence and also by being prepared to communicate positively with all concerned and maintain the right atmosphere.
Some birth supporters are unable to come along to classes and I often find myself working with them through the mother who can pass on useful information and techniques back home.
The birth partner may also like to have a session or two on their own to address any issues or fears that they may have in connection with this birth.
