Does Hypnobirthing guarantee you have a 'natural birth'?

Simply put - No.

The term 'natural birth' is a slightly odd term as in essence all births bring a baby into the world which is a natural event.

What most people are referring to is having a spontaneous, instinctive birth without medical intervention. The majority of women who use Hypnobirthing techniques do give birth instinctively and do not need any additional support or intervention. However, there will be times when some women require additional support. No matter what this support entails, hypnobirthing tools and techniques will still help you work with your body and with the medical team around you.

Every Birth is unique and every birth takes it’s own journey. There are no guarantees when it comes to birth, so the most important way to prepare is to learn to let go of anxiety, to learn to relax deeply at will and learn to breath and stay calm. All of theses things will give you the most positive chance of a spontaneous, instinctive birth.
