Hypnobirthing audio helps you to positively prepare for a calm, relaxed birth as part of the full hypnobirthing training programme. Alongside visualisations, bodywork, knowledge of how your female body works and birth care, among other things, the audio files are an important foundation of hypnobirthing. Here is a guide to the use of these auditory relaxation exercises for pregnant women.
HYPNOBIRTHING MEDITATIONS AND SCRIPTS
Most Hypnobirthing methods have their own audio files, each with its own flavour. Some are based on a certain tradition, such as vipassana or mindfulness meditation, others have another origin. But which sound files do you choose? At KG Hypnobirthing, we work with scripts according to the principles of hypnotherapy, written by hypnotherapist Katharine Graves. This means that the texts are written in such a way that they have an optimal effect on your body and mind. The choice of words and sentence structure is geared to that.

WHY KG HYPNOBIRTHING RELAXATION?
What I find special about the KG Hypnobirthing relaxation exercises is that they are very universal. Natural and universal associations are used. Think of butterflies and rivers. Thus, you can use them regardless of cultural background or spiritual orientation. A good example is an exercise that takes you to your safe place. A place where you can always go through visualisation to relax and feel at home. With words that invite you to land and build confidence.
HYPNOBIRTHING FOR MIDWIVES
Do you want a taste of the hypnobirthing audio in the course? Or do you, as a midwife, also want to benefit from the positive effects of these hypnobirthing tools and at the same time be able to put yourself in the position of the hypnobirthing mothers you are guiding? Then listen to the relaxations below. Not only supportive for midwives, but also for clinical midwives and obstetrics nurses, maternity nurses and other birth workers.
AUDIO – DEEP TRUST FOR MIDWIVES
AUDIO – CALM AND CONFIDENCE FOR MIDWIVES
WHERE DO YOU LISTEN TO THE HYPNOBIRTHING MP3S?
You can download the sound files as mp3s to any device you like. Then you can listen to them at any time and any place you want. It doesn’t matter if you are fully conscious or doing something else in the meantime, it always makes a difference because your subconscious is recording it anyway. Hanging out the laundry or going for a long walk is fine. This is how you train yourself for a positive birth and immediately experience calm and tranquillity. What more could you want?
If you want to hear something else than hypnobirthing audio downloads, listen to a podcast. These are not about relaxing, but about getting informed on all kinds of topics related to hypnobirthing.
A hypnobirthing podcast to recommend is that of the Nurture Nest, made by a British hypnobirthing teacher. Positive and light, in my opinion very nice to listen to. It includes interesting episodes on aromatherapy during pregnancy and childbirth and extensive personal experiences with breastfeeding and pumping. Other episodes are about the history of hypnobirthing, the place to give birth and pain management.
Soon there will also be a podcast of KG Hypnobirthing. As soon as it becomes available, here is the link. For now, a sneak preview with Katharine Graves via the Motherkind Podcast.
With the course you will also receive a personal selection of teacher Marise for in-depth Dutch and English podcasts and livestreams.
PODCAST – CAN GIVING BIRTH BE EMPOWERING?
LISTENING: THE MORE OFTEN, THE BETTER
For all hypnobirthing audio the rule is, the more often the better. With every minute you listen, your body-mind connection is further developed. So that when the time comes, you don’t have to think about anything and you can just be in your birth bubble. Or if you are just out of it, you will be invited back in again. With a familiar sound to come to yourself. Listen to them!
P.S. With the course, both Dutch and English scripts and hypnobirthing audio are available.
