Hypnobirthing is a process by which pregnant women use guided imagery, relaxation techniques, meditation, breathing exercises and sound therapy to have a natural birth with no fear. There’s an entire science behind it that goes far beyond my level of expertise and understanding. If you’re interested in learning more, google it. There’s a wealth of information out there on it, as well as different methods, techniques, classes and so forth.
Hypnobirthing is well-established and much more common in Europe than in the USA. In fact, it’s huge in the UK. I didn’t really know much about it, until many of my customers told me they were using the ZENBand for hypnobirthing. That’s when I did a little research and realized the ZENBand was a great tool for hypnobirthers ( is that a word?), because it’s super-comfortable, the speakers stay in place ( unlike ear buds), you can lay down comfortably while wearing it, and you can wear it while giving birth. It’s also not noise-canceling, which is important during the birthing process. You need to hear what’s going on! Anyhow, ZENBands WILL be a part of the International Hypnobirthing conference held later this year in October out in San Diego. I haven’t been to San Diego since I was a cadet at West Point, but I remember it being beautiful so I can’t wait to go. That said, here is a great review from one of London’s top hypnobirthing instructors on our ZENBand:
I have been luckily enough to get my hands on a zenband and I LOVE it. The inbuilt speakers in the band just mean I can listen to some hypnosis or music on the go ???? #hypnobirthingrocks #hypnobirthing #hypnobirth #birthwithoutfear #birth #motherhood #parenthood #pregnancyaffirmations #pregnancy #affirmations #positivebirth #duedate #oxytocin #mommy #mindfulness #mindfulbirth #happybump #postpartum #bekindtoyourself #love #mantra #birthmantra #zenbands @zenbandszentones
