When pregnant, you may be concerned at what style of birthing will most suit you. There are many strong opinions on which birthing style is best, but, with a little information, the style which suits you is ultimately the best one for you.

We’ve presented many different styles of birthing for you to choose from in our selection of birth videos and galleries, and here’s another option to consider: Hypnobirth.

Farewell to fear?

Hypnobirth is described as the process of diminishing intrusive fear or anxiety in childbirth by using hypnotherapy. It’s often associated with water birth and birthing pools and is facilitated by a hypnotherapy coach.

If you’re eaten up with anxiety over childbirth, take a look at what a hypnobirth looks like in this short video:
