I love a good Hypnobirthing script.
They are like tiny little bursts of Hypnobirthing magic…with SUPER powers!
Because the more you practice with a your script (and this freebie is for preggies, not teachers) the more familiar it becomes. And the more familiar it becomes, the BETTER it feels.
The first time your mind hears any NEW birth meditation or relaxation script, the subconscious mind stays on guard, looking out for any surprises, triggers or anything that does not align.
But the more your subconscious hears a hypnobirthing script. The more your brain learns to like it, trust it & the more you can relax into it. It’s like knowing what’s around the corner!
And you feel more relaxed (on every level), the more resources & energy you give to the muscles of your birthing body.
And WOW does your birthing body love that!
Plus, if you have any fears or worries about birth? Hypnobirthing scripts can help you reframe them so you can start focusing on what you do want, instead of what you don’t want.
What was my biggest fear in my first pregnancy?
THE HEAD COMING OUT
(of that private little space down there)
And when we get scared? The jaw tenses and the pelvis tenses with it.
Not helpful when a baby needs to come out!
But here’s the thing…
When you relax your face, your pelvis relaxes too!
So it’s a birth NO BRAINER is to learn to relax your face. Smiling & kissing have the same effect. (And please don’t mis-read that to mean you have to smile and kiss at the same time…can you IMAGINE?!!)
And if you want to be fully prepared with mind-body tools and techniques for mental and physical deep relaxation during the ‘Down & Out’ phase (aka the pushing or crowning bit) or Eek…’Ring of Fire’ take a peep at my one off Down & Out Hypnobirthing Class here.

My Free Hypnobirthing script – Face & Pelvis relaxation is below. Please have a go before being distracted by the fabulous links below!! Face & Pelvis relaxation is a handy hypnobirthing technique for learning to instinctively relax ‘down there’ and enhance the natural connection you already have between jaw and pelvis. Face and pelvis relaxation is beyond beautiful when used alongside my River of Birth Relaxation. River of Birth beautifully combines direct and indirect trance (and a touch of Coué) to relax and positively the subconscious mind with your birthing body.

Face & Pelvis Hypnobirthing Relaxation
Settle yourself into this gentle practice, by just making yourself comfortable…however your comfort guides you…letting your eyes close softly and gently and allowing yourself to become quiet… relaxed…and still…
Just take a long and gentle breath as you quietly begin to focus in ward for a while…
You can acknowledge sounds coming and going and let them be whatever they are…
Use my words…merely as pointers to your own…quiet… internal… experience…
Notice your breath…not controlling your breath…just letting your breath be whatever it is…
And bring your experience to the sensation of your face…
Noticing the temperature of the air is rests against your skin…
Noticing your face…how it feels in this moment…and gently allowing your face to relax…allowing your face to release
Noticing how soft your face feels…as it softens and settles…
Noticing your forehead relaxing gently…eyes so soft…eyelashes resting so softly on your cheeks…and your cheeks gently relaxed…even your ears gently relaxed…thinking down…to your lips gently relaxed…so soft… whether closed or gently parted
Your jaw gently relaxing too…relaxing and releasing…tongue gently relaxing and teeth gently relaxing too
Shoulders dropped to their natural level
Just noticing every part of your face…how it feels…how gently relaxed it can feel….so soft…so settled…so easily…so effortlessly…just by focusing inward for a while….
Tuning in to your own inner wisdom…acknowledging the deep connections within your body…seen or unseen…known or unknown…deep connections that run deeper…and deeper…between your emotional and physical self
Deep connections between thoughts and feelings
Deep connections between confidence and trust
Deep connections between autonomy and birth
Deep connections between birth and your baby
Deep connections between face and pelvis…connections that mean that as you gently and naturally relax the muscles of your face…you gently and naturally relax your pelvis…gently and naturally relaxing the muscles of your pelvic floor…gently and naturally softening your perineum
Because even without even trying…that connection…that connection between your face and your pelvis…that connection that works…for you…for your birth…for your benefit…for your confidence and trust…
Gently softening, relaxing and releasing your pelvis… just by relaxing your face
And now…feeling that inner wisdom…that effortless connection between face and pelvis…that connection that can be used by you…to your highest benefit… so whenever you relax your face…you can relax your pelvis…and allow that connection to grow…gently and naturally… without even trying
So you can allow your pelvis to soften and release…relaxing gently and naturally…
Just as it will when your birth your baby
So take a moment now…notice with curiosity…
With no effort at all…these natural internal connections…combining…working…gently relaxing…so naturally…so easily…softening…settling…relaxing and releasing
Each and every time you choose to practice this mindful hypnobirthing relaxation…to find a moment to soften gently
Deciding on certain times in the day…knowing the more regularly you do this…the quicker the connections will grow…the more gentle and natural they’ll become…the more you’ll feel yourself softening, setting and releasing
Now in your own time…start bringing your awareness back towards the here & now…listening to the sounds around you…noticing not just your face…and your pelvis…but your whole body from the tips of your toes to the top of your head.
Opening your eyes, softy and gently…feeling confident in your own internal journey and your ability to gently soften and relax your pelvis when you softly and easily give birth to your baby.
A comfortable birth starts at home – with your body! And all the things we naturally do to help with pain, help with child birth as well, but we tend to over think it! And then worrying makes it even worse.
So start with something simple, like progressive muscle relaxation and this script to make it easy!
