With all the horror stories and dramatic birth scenes in medical dramas, it's understandable why we tend to associate giving birth with pain, and how it's the hardest thing your body will go through.

But forget gas and air and epidurals, hypnobirthingputs you in a place of calm and reduces some of the fear and pain you get with labour through self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques, and it's becoming increasingly popular with mums all over the world to help them get through their labour.

Hypnobirthing is a way to put yourself back in control of your birth, and there are many classes and courses you can attend to help you learn the important techniques. Even better, you can now also practice these techniques via books, podcasts and on your phone. Have a scroll, and find the best app for you.
