Many women have fear and anxiety related to childbirth. This fear can stimulate the release of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, which can result in a racing heart, increased tension and tight muscles. This often results in a more painful and longer labour, and may increase the likelihood of intervention, e.g. forceps or Caesarean birth.  

Mind Body Birthing teaches women and their birth partners techniques such as breathing, relaxation, visualisation and self-hypnosis to instead induce relaxation/love hormones (such as oxytocin) and endorphins (morphine-like hormones). These hormones are important in the birth process and can alter our perception of pain. These techniques, combined with good knowledge and support, empower couples to have a more calm and positive birth experience.
