Hypnobirthing is a method of pain management that can be used during labour and birth. It can include controlled breathing, visualising, calming and mindfulness techniques to help you concentrate on you and the birth of your baby.
Hypnobirthing can be used alongside other types of pain relief. The techniques can also be used for natural births, assisted births or c-sections.
