What Does A Hypnobirthing Instructor Do?
I usually get one of three possible responses when I tell people I train others to be hypnobirthing teachers.
Response a) “I wish I’d known about hypnobirthing when I was pregnant”
Response b) “What does a hypnobirthing instructor do?”
Response c) “How do you train to become a hypnobirthing instructor?”
There’s not really a lot I can say to the first one other than smile and nod my head a bit, but if I get asked the second one, it’s all I can do to stop myself inviting them to pull up a chair and ask them how long they’ve got?
I have developed a sort of interim response in order to determine how interested they actually are, and not to scare off those who are simply being polite, which goes something like this:-
“I teach people how to remain calm during childbirth” which then either leads to a non-committal response (see response a) or they press me further.
