Can you afford to NOT do HypnoBirthing Classes?

Over the last few weeks I have had a few inquires from expectant new mums about doing my HypnoBirthing classes.  The conversation ended with oh.. I am not sure we can afford to do classes.

Knowing what I know about our maternity system I’m not sure you can’t afford to do HypnoBirthing classes!

So let’s break this down.. HB classes are NOT just about preparing you for the physical, logistics of birthing a baby.  That is what run of the mill normal childbirth classes do. That is why they are held over one day or split into a weekend course.

If these classes were so fantastic about birth preparation then we wouldn’t have these current Australian statistics:

1:3 babies are born via caeseran section now.

1:4 labours are via induction.

1:3 woman describe their birth as traumatic.

1:4 woman suffer some kind of major physical trauma with birth.

1:7 woman are now diagnosed with post natal depression.

1:10 dads are now diagnosed with post natal depression.

The number ONE cause of perinatal morbidity is SUICIDE…

WTF is going on……

we also know that babies are conscious beings before birth… they are aware of their environment in the womb.. they are marinating in the hormones of their mothers. So preparation for celebrating their birthday matters!

Here is the most recent WHO recommendations on reducing non medical interventions and unnecessary procedures. Number one recommendation is education programs that teach preventiong programs on prevention of fear and anxiety!

The birth education is much more than just the birth of a baby… it is about a WHOLE experience and journey through conception, labour and birth and the post natal experience. We are talking about a 10 month journey.

Preparing for the birth of your baby deserves the research, the education just like you would planning for a physical event, a holiday and a wedding! Certainly more than walking around a parenting expo and test driving a pram!

 

[ARTICLE] “Infant Sleep Myth Put To Bed At Last”- Courier Mail November 17th 2018

THE “gold standard” target that a baby should sleep through the night before the age of one has been smashed by experts.

The researchers examined whether infants who didn’t sleep for six or eight consecutive hours were more likely to have problems with physical skills, such as movement and dexterity, or mental development. They found no correlation.

The researchers also found no link between infants waking at night and mothers’ post-natal mood.

Queensland midwife and baby sleep consultant Amanda Bude said understanding the normal sleep needs and variations for babies after six months was important for reassuring parents.

[ARTICLE] “Pregnancy Weight Guidelines Spark Fatshame Fears”- The Courier Mail 5th November 2018

NEW clinical guidelines for pregnant Australians will put more focus on weight, a move slammed by maternity consumer advocates who fear women will feel fat-shamed.

A summary of the updated recommendations, published today in the Medical Journal of Australia highlights that health practitioners should offer pregnant women advice on weight, diet and physical activity and the chance to be weighed at each antenatal visit.

Gold Coast midwife Amanda Bude, who teaches private childbirth classes, said guidelines should focus on body mass index rather than weight.

“A high BMI of 30-35 at the first antenatal visit can alert pregnancy carers that a woman maybe at risk for complications in pregnancy, such as DVT, gestational diabetes and high blood pressure,” Ms Bude said.
