HypnoBirthing and Aromatherapy

‏How HypnoBirthing and Aromatherapy Can Make a Gentle Birth Experience

‏Every woman dreams of an easy, relatively painless birth without complications. The ultimate solution is combining the special birth technique, HypnoBirthing with the support of essential oils, namely aromatherapy.
‏Why exactly can these two techniques help best?
‏The philosophy behind HypnoBirthing is that fear creates tension, and tension causes pain for mother and stress for her baby. By reducing fear childbirth can be calm and relaxed, faster and easier, without artificial intervention (by chemicals), accompanied by fewer complications.
‏HypnoBirthing tools are meditation, guided imagery and special breathing techniques. Here aromatherapy may fit in as a powerful, subtle and effective tool supporting these important methods in order to achieve a gentle birth.
‏Aromatherapy is one of the alternative medicines, the use of essential oils in a holistic approach. Aromatherapy affects the body, soul and spirit simultaneously.
‏HypnoBirthing puts the main emphasis on the mother's mental state. When the mother is relaxed and calm, trusts her body and works together with the baby during birth, the birthing process is full of the magic of supportive hormones and turns out to a happy experience. Here are several examples of how HypnoBirthing and aromatherapy help to achieve this state:
‏• Meditation: a change in consciousness using techniques such as guided imagery. Essential oils are known and were used for thousands of years for this purpose. For example, Frankincense essential oil represents the nobility of essential oils, which connects soul and spirit and gives a person a deep inner calmness. (In churches it is still in use) Frankincense has the ability to slow down and deepen your breath, which is very conducive to prayer and meditation. Frankincense contains chemical components called monoterpenes. These molecules are known to alleviate pain, they are powerful sedatives.
‏• Breathing techniques: There are three types of breathing according to the phases of birth. Sleep breathing helps to achieve a meditative state, serves to calm down. The most important breathing technique is slow breathing, aiming on the expansion of the cervix during labor. The last special type of breathing is used when the "mother breathes the baby into the birth canal." All types of breathing require some support, so there are three different types of aromatic blends, containing various essential oils.
‏• Supporting environment: during the birth the surroundings have a profound influence on the mood of the mother. The partner, doula and midwives play a very important role in the birth process and can affect birth outcomes. Hypnobirthing guides them through and teaches gentle way of support. Aromatherapy is a fine representative of Mother Nature by ensuring psychological support, relaxation and stress relief. It clears the air of the birthing room, uplifts your mood and recharges positive energy.
