This is a beautiful interview with a couple who completed the Positive Birth course with Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner Shari Lyon from Belly2Birth Hypnobirthing on the Gold Coast.
Hannah is a midwife and Garth is a Doctor (Paediatrician) so when it comes to the physiological side of labour, these guys have it covered. However, after a traumatic first birth they did some research and decided to attend the ‘Positive Birth Program’ to focus more on their fears and mindset around birth.
This is a must-see video for all couples – particularly if you are curious about Hypnobirth, but not sure how it could help you in your birthing journey. Watch how Hannah describes her two births and the Hypnobirthing tools and techniques she used to achieve her positive and ‘healing’ second birth.
In the words of their Hypnobirth teacher…
“When I was first contacted by Instagram Influencer and midwife Hannah Polites about doing the Hypnobirthing Australia program with me to help her work through the trauma of her last birth and prepare for this birth without fear I knew that I didn’t need to teach her about the physiology of birth.
From our first session together I knew I had to help Hannah get out of her Midwife Brain where she over thought all the possibilities of what could happen and teach her how to come into her instinctive brain and gain the confidence in her ability to have the birth she wanted and deserved.”
