Hypnobirthing for a c section

Hypnobirthing for a Caesarean Birth: Vanessa Bernard

We all know that sometimes childbirth doesn’t go according to plan. Whether or not you have a c-section, planned or emergency, it is really empowering for all pregnant women to understand techniques to create a positive experience in any situation you might find yourself it. Hypnobirthing for a c section birth is one way to help create a positive experience. And today I am joined by Vanessa Bernard, mother of two, pediatric nurse, and certified hypnobirthing practitioner to discuss hypnobirthing for caesareans, as well as all births.

We dive into the key ways hypnobirthing techniques can be helpful if you are having a c section caesarean birth. Vanessa Bernard shares my belief that knowledge is power, and we discuss the different ways a pregnant mama can educate herself and the people around her about the possibility of a caesarean birth. Most of all she wants all mums to understand that if you have a change in circumstances, you can still have a really beautiful, positive caesarean birth experience. Her tips are practical, helpful, and easy to implement so make sure you have a notepad with you as you listen!

Vanessa shares tips for pregnant women surrounding preparation for birth, but also birth itself. We discuss hormones of birth (vaginal and caesarean), and ways to bridge the ‘hormonal gap’ that might occur, which can help to improve the beautiful connection to birth and your baby.

If you’re pregnant, this episode is for you, no matter how you end up giving birth – vaginal birth or caesarean birth – I am sure you will find this hypnobirthing for a c-section episode useful.
