HypnoBirthing for Everyone

HypnoBirthing is for everyone, not just for those who choose home birth. In fact, we do not advocate home birth only. We support any choice of birth you make: Birthing center, water birth, home birth and even a hospital helped birth. The only thing we do not advocate and do not support is drugged birth, scheduled cesareans and unnecessarily manipulated birthing. We do not support deliberate ignorance and carelessness. We teach you to be comfortable at your birth and be safe, as well as be able to feel the way to WANT to feel, happy, elated, joyful, bonded with your baby and loved ones, orgasmic, loving, light, smiling, or laughing, rather than scared and pained. We help you relieve the fears and concerns before birthing, so you can go into the birthing happy and light and enjoy your time.

When you give birth at home, your feel safer, unrushed, comfortable and supported by your family, than in a hospital facility, where you are pushed to finish up, and agree to measures you don't like, or have no decision privilege. Fact: in 1900s 90% of all births happened at home; in 1955 only 1% of births took place at home. Business of Being Born, a Documentary by Ricki Lake, sites: Hospitals are businesses, beds need to be filled and then emptied, and many women do not have the time to enjoy the birthing process naturally, as it should go on. They are induced, they are sped up, they are made to comply the orders of the hospital, doctors, and the whole business of birthing. Use of Caesarian section is peaking. In the 1970s - only 40%, last decade -70%, since 1996 the case of using caesarian section for birthing had risen to 96%, in 2005 on in every three women had caesarian!

Stay In The Flow

Dear Pregnant Mom,
Whether or not you are aware, during pregnancy, labor and birhing of your baby you experience a separation from ordinary reality, allowing you to experience a deeper connection with your baby.
This is what I have called "Being in the flow". "Staying in the flow" is when you have access to the "Flow" by "Being in the FLow" all the time, at will.
  Most people live their life by someone else's design: they are told what to do, and they go on doing it.
  By staying in the flow you step into the opportunity to break that cycle, for yourself and for your baby
and to begin to create a new template of your choosing easily and gently making the subtle changes in attitude and action that create a labor where satisfaction and enjoyment are at least POSSIBLE.
If you've read this far you probably are more interested and willing than 99% of pregnant women to whom I sent this letter, which  makes you special. The sad truth is that most people are seeking a magic pill for their labor, and they are unwilling to do what it takes to have what they want:
Yes, the magic pill exists and it is just a temporary fix for those who don't want to feel the full satisfaction from the birthing process, the sexual charge it gives, the plesure, the awakening of the large feeling of love to their baby, bonding with your partner, and the fulfilling feeling of legacy they are creating.  
The legacy for your baby, because babies do remember birth...
What I'm offering is a life-long answer to the desire for fulfillment and satisfaction in labor, the feeling of "feeling alive", that most women say they want. 
I expect that as few as 1 % and no more than 2% will understand it, and 98-99% will reject it immediately, and I'm willing to accept it. I know, sadly, that the natural, enjoyable, satisfying birth is NOT for everyone. Those who want the quick fix will have just that. Not satisfaction.
This is about a road to awareness/enlightenment/fulfillment/satisfaction about the dream birth less traveled, but traveled by mothers who create orgasmic birth, love and life of passion, feelings of being alive and fulfillment. Who are usually willing and able to master what it takes to get desired results: short labor, calm and smooth birth of their baby.
I am always eager, actually, to take unusual individuals, who value the journey, to creating the journey of labor and birth that is more fulfilling than they ever dreamt before or may think is possible, at the same time creating sustainable stability for their family in an unstable world.
If you want to go inside to where the flow is where I've most effectively helped others stay in their flow, their connection with the future of possibility of creating the birth that they want,
I invite you to begin now. Subscribe to my HypnoBirthing class now. 

All the best,
Morrin Bass

Use Birthing Stool for Comfortable Squat

What you see here is a 16-century birth stool used for the final stages in childbirth labor. (I like the curtains on the sides!)

When the baby begins to crown, a mother needs to continue to use the gravity of the baby, whose weight helps the movement down the birth path without pushing.

Sometimes it is easier to sit on the stool than squat and concentrate all your attention on the final stages of baby coming out.

The idea of the birth stool has been in use in midwifery for centuries.
Until very recently, in Europe, particularly in Northern Europe, in Denmark, birthing stool was considered a family treasure, and was preserved in the family for generations. A bride brought to the new family the birth stool inherited from her mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. After all, the importance of procreation was emphasized and strengthened by the religious influences.

Today, we don't have to store such commodity for generations. Each mom can get her own. In fact, each one can get their own style.

You can have one with handles, which makes it quite comfortable to hold onto, while your husband is behind you whispering positive HypnoBirthing affirmations into your receptive ear.

Or you could have modern sterility in plastic, with a helping figure for its back to lean on, while your midwife talks you through your calm and comfortable J-breathing (Birth Breathing) in the final stages of your baby arrival.

So feel free to choose your style, as long as it is comfortable for you and fits your needs.
