By the end of this course, you are officially #MadeInBenchLab and will know: 1) issues with labour in our current setting and to debunk the myth that pain needs to accompany mothers in labour, 2) how the body is naturally designed to conceive, nurture and birth your baby with ease and comfort, 3) how to achieve a safer, easier and more comfortable birth, 4) techniques for deep relaxation to help eliminate the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome, 5) how to create and use your body's own natural relaxant and painkiller, which is the only safe labour enhancement, 6) natural ways to bring your body into labour, without artificial chemical inductions, 7) gentle breathing techniques that allow you to breathe your baby without the violence of hard physical pushing, and 8) how to use your natural birthing instincts.

BenchLab Talented Instructor: Ruzanna Abdul Rahman of Baby With Bee. You'll be learning from a mother of three who has experienced firsthand how HypnoBirthing has helped her since her very first childbirth experience during which she was first introduced to this birth education programme. Ruzanna is a certified AMANI childbirth educator and doula and a certified HypnoBirthing instructor. The birth of her first child has motivated her to learn more about natural labour and understand how this process can be made easier and safer for expecting mothers while also benefiting the birthing companion as well as the baby. Knowing the science behind the physical and psychological effects of deep relaxation techniques on labour will aid the experience and this is what Ruzanna hopes to share with her audience. She also hopes for expecting mothers to have a better postpartum experience with these techniques and for their babies to benefit from the childbirth in the long run.
