“Kate Middleton says hypnobirthing didn't just get her though labour—it got her through pregnancy.”
Kate Middleton has spoken to fellow hypnobirthing advocate Giovanna Fletcher about how hypnobirthing helped her deliver all three of her children.
“I saw the power of it really, the meditation and the deep breathing and things like that—that they teach you in hypnobirthing—when I was really sick and actually I realised that this was something I could take control of, I suppose, during labour,” she said.
It’s different for everyone, although I do recommend the hypnobirthing classes. I highly recommend it. It just makes you chill,” Jessica told US Weekly.
Fearne reveals she used hypnobirthing for Honey’s arrival as well as cards with positive slogans on to help keep her focussed through labour.
The mum-of-two said Honey’s arrival was a ‘positive experience’ which was both ‘intense and euphoric’.
‘Having a natural pain relief free birth was the most intense and euphoric experience ever’ she wrote. ‘My first birth was very different to this and although all we want is our babies to be healthy I think it’s important to remember how strong us women can be and what our bodies can do.’
New mum Giovanna Fletcher has spoken out about her labour, calling it “amazingly powerful”. She also revealed how Michael McIntyre and Coldplay helped her through the birth experience.
Giovanna used hypno-birthing techniques to help her relax and recalls happily that her labour was nothing like the horror stories she’d heard.
She said: Tom was as encouraging as I knew he would be – rubbing my back and reminding me to breathe anytime a frown appeared on my brow. He anchored me and made sure the day was as we’d hoped it would be.
