Frequently Asked Questions

Here you will find many of the most common questions people ask us about Mucha Mama Hypnobirthing course.   When would be the best time to attend a course? We suggest leaving around 6-10 weeks before your due date to attend a course. This will give you enough time to enjoy the exercises and allow everything to sink in. If you are very scared you could start a little earlier. If you are confident already, you can attend a litle later. What is hypnosis? We’re all hypnotized several times a day; when you are dropping off to sleep, when you daydream, when your son or daughter is totally engrossed in a film and does not hear a word what you are saying or when you are driving 10 miles without knowing how you got there!  It is completely safe and natural and in this deeply relaxed state the subconscious mind can be accessed directly. As the subconscious mind doesn’t differentiate between fact and fiction positive suggestions can be made and taken on by you, fears can be released easily and future events, such as an easy birth, can be imagined and experienced as though they were reality. This is what occurs when listening to hypnobirthing mp3 downloads (or a hypnobirthing cd) specifically designed to create a positive birth experience in a mother How does Mucha Mama HypnoBirthing Course differ from other childbirth preparation programs? Unlike other childbirth methods and programs that teach you how to cope with and manage pain, Hypnobirthing is based on the premise that childbirth does not necessarily need to be painful if the mother is well prepared, knows how to work with her body and remains relaxed. Hypnobirthing enables you to learn how to release fear and stimulate to create endorphins—the feel good hormones. You are then also able to change your vision of birth; long, painful labor and are able to replace them with expectations of a more comfortable birth experience. Through breathing techniques and relaxation techniques, Hypnobirthing parents learn to achieve a shorter and more comfortable labor for mam and her baby. More flexible course days The Mucha Mama hypnobirthing course differs as well as it is different from other hypnobirthing courses because of the set up;  one full day course  or  3x 2.5 hours course. These possibilities were created because a modern mom these days, is very busy woman. You need flexibility in order to be able to enjoy and experience this great method of happy birthing into your busy life. Extra course materials As well with the Mucha Mama hypnobirthing course you will have the access to various video´s  & Mp3  downloads;  including » different hypnobirthing sessions/affirmations sessions/breathing sessions.  These are great assets to consult whenever you need a reminder of what you learned in class. Extra support packages At the end of your pregnancy you still might need some extra assistance, with for example your baby who is passing the birth date that is calculated by hospital or obstetrician (happens most of the time) / you need to be induced / or your baby is in a breech position. We are always there to assist you with these special circumstances and will offer you extra support, inspiration and exercises to turn things around! Extra professional training All teachers in the Mucha Mama method have received on average 25% more training than most other hypnobirthing methods. Also our teachers receive practical training during live courses. This is unusual for most methods. Does this course ensure you will experience a pain-free and natural birth with hypnobirthing? As much as we would like to ensure that, it is simply not possible, though many hypnobirthing mothers do report having a relatively pain-free birth and not needing other forms of pain relief due to the fact they were well practiced in the techniques that we teach. Achieving a calm, comfortable birth depends on a number of factors, the most important being the amount of practice that you put in outside of the classes.  When the cause of pain; ‘fear’ that constricts the birthing muscles—is eliminated, birthing can be accomplished in a shorter period and much more comfortably. A relaxed mother’s body will produce more endorphins, nature’s own relaxants. Hypnobirthing mothers may still experience sensations of tightening or pressure; but most describe their birth experience as working with their body through the sensations, and thus avoiding the excruciating pain that is frequently spoken of by women who have prepared for their birth differently. Sometimes women don’t get the natural birth that they so desperately desire due to many different factors – however hypnobirthing teaches you to stay calm and in control no matter what direction your birth takes and no matter where you choose to birth,  you can still enjoy a wonderful birth experience.  Women who have a cesarean operation also benefit greatly from the techniques and achieve beautiful birth experiences. Is hypnosis and hypnotherapy scary? Is Hypnobirthing safe? When you use the hypnobirthing techniques you will be aware of what is going on around you, you will be free to focus on your surroundings or just yourself as you please. At all times you will be the one in control. It possibly makes you more aware as you are able to process things more What if you are not sure if Hypnobirthing is the perfect match for you?
