HypnoBirthing Classes ( 08:30 - 16:00 )
Theoni is one of a handful of certified Hypnobirthing® practitioners in South Africa. Using Hypnobirthing® methods she teaches mothers and birth companions techniques for safe and satisfying birthing through guided imagery, visualization, and special breathing.

About Hypnobirthing ®


The HypnoBirthing Childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing.  HypnoBirthing® teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner.  You will learn to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication.  When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same will-designed manner that it does with all other creatures.

You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing ® films showing labouring mothers, awake, alert and in good humour as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome.  
HypnoBirthing® teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles.

HypnoBirthing® will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts.  With HypnoBirthing, you will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.

YOU WILL LEARN:

  • Everything you need to know to achieve safer, easier and more comfortable birth

  • To explode the myth that pain is a necessary accompaniment to labour

  • What’s wrong with labour as it exists with most other childbirth methods

  • Techniques of deep relaxation to help you eliminate the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome

  • How your body is naturally designed to conceive, nurture and birth your baby with ease and comfort

  • To create your body’s own natural relaxant, the only safe labour enhancement

  • Natural ways to bring your body into labour without artificial chemical induction

  • How you and your birthing companion can create a birthing environment that is calm, serene and joyful, rather than tense and stressful

  • Gentle birthing techniques that allow you to breathe your baby into the world without the violence of hard physical pushing

  • To use your natural birthing instincts to birth your baby in a way that most mirrors the way that nature intended

Pre-Natal Yoga ( 18:00 - 19:15 )

PRENATAL YOGA

  • Recommended by most doctors and midwives, prenatal yoga offers a multitude of benefits to both mother and baby throughout pregnancy, during birth and beyond:
  •  
  •  
 
  • Joint exercises - perfect for poor circulation, swelling/water retention and excellent to improve mobility. Also enhances squatting and other birthing positions.
  • Gentle Stretching - maintains supple and toned muscles.
  • Breathing – balances the autonomic nervous system which regulates the major systems of the body and controls hormonal secretions. Deep breathing increases the intake of oxygen to both mother and baby. ‘Birthing breaths’ aid in the preparation for a calm birthing.
  • Yoga Nidra - Blood pressure is also lowered and during this relaxation technique and one gains the equivalent of 4 hours deep sleep. Yoga Nidra also promotes inner communication with your child and assists in releasing any impressions associated with the fear of birthing.
 
  • In addition, by developing a deeper awareness of your body, a powerful connection between a mother and her child is established.
