Greg Rutherford - Olympic Gold Medalist - Hypnobirthing with Natal Hypnotherapy
"I wasnt against Natal Hypnotherapy, but I hadnt read up on it and didnt think it would be particularly beneficial to me at all. Well, how wrong I was!
Now I feel ready. Now I feel like a superhuman midwife man hero. I am here! I am equipped with relaxation techniques! Ive been taught ways in which I can help slow breathing, encourage without making Suz want to kill me and work with the midwives to make sure everything goes smoothly and suits our birth plan. All silliness aside, Id presumed Id just *be* there when the day came Id make sure Suz got what she wanted. Now I feel like Ive got a purpose and can actually help - it was hugely useful to both of us.
Birth needs to be something the men are fully prepared and involved in. And actually, I think a lot of guys want to be, we just dont know how. Its really easy to feel helpless. If you think your wife/girlfriend might be keen on giving the whole Natal Hypnotherapy a whirl then as a couple, we couldnt recommend it more."
