Childbirth is an exciting part of many women’s lives. Hypnotherapy and hypnosis are effective, non-invasive tools that help women achieve peace and calm before, during, and after giving birth. They provide simple, accessible tools one or both parents can use to create a positive beginning for themselves and their new baby.
Our conscious mind can only focus on a few things at any given moment in time, but our subconscious is much bigger and is constantly processing information and storing it away. Hypnosis works with your subconscious mind to help overcome unwanted habits or physical responses. Hypnotherapy or hypnosis is based on easy relaxation and visualization techniques that enable women to harness the incredible power of their subconscious to bring their baby into the world.
Under hypnosis you are deeply relaxed and can learn techniques that that help you visualize your baby in your womb. There are many advantages to the use of hypnosis in early pregnancy. One of the first problems during pregnancy is the onset of morning sickness. Hypnosis helps to reduce the feelings of nausea and sickness by suggestions to relax and to release any stresses and tensions. It also removes the extreme tiredness you may experience. Heartburn, backache, swollen feet & legs, high blood pressure, headaches, fluctuations in temperature, aching joints & aching of the breasts quite often are due to the increased weight as the baby grows. All of these ailments can be controlled by hypnosis and in most cases removed completely where hypnosis has been used in early pregnancy.
Hypnosis is an excellent option for any pregnant woman who is looking for a non-invasive way to welcome a child into the world. Women and their partners are also taught a new vocabulary to describe labor and birth, to break the traditional association of birth with pain.
