The seminar chaired by Rara Yumna Elfrida was begun with a description of hypnobirthing in Indonesia today. Lanny explained, more women and their partners are educated and want to know how to have a comfortable and safe childbirth.
“Many pregnant women want to learn because, this digital era, almost all clients who had hypnobirthing shared what they experienced, shared their stories through social media. Thus, my class is always full, “stated Lenny.
Not only giving material about hypnobirthing and the influence of maternal psychic health on childbirth by using this technique, there was also a workshop implementing hypnobirthing for all ESTRADIOL participants. Participants can feel directly how the two presenters perform the technique.
Lanny explained, learning hypnobirthing must be able to relax. One technique is distracting yourself, or moving your focus. So, there will be several techniques that will be put into practice.
