In recent years more and more women decide to learn Self Hypnosis for an easier childbirth. Even Princess Kate used Hypnotherapy to help her with her morning sickness and will use Hypnosis to give birth to her baby. This is a positive way forward as If we look to other cultures childbirth is regarded as a natural, normal event in a woman’s life. As a celebration of life where other women gave support and often even children are to witness the event. In this way, birth is celebrated and honoured.
Young girls then grow up with the belief system that birth is a positive event and their expectations of childbirth reflect this attitude.
This leads as a result, that their births are similar to their predecessors; without pain and fear. They have a positive expectation of childbirth. In our culture, it is very much the opposite. For many generations we have been told that delivering a baby involves many hours of painfully agonising work, to be faced with fear and trepidation. We have all heard stories from well-meaning friends and family that made us fearful of this beautiful event. Pain is than experienced in childbirth, in part because we expect it to be . . Can women give birth without experiencing pain? They can, but there are many variables in labour and birth that can affect the outcome, and couples need to have a positive but realistic view of hypnosis for childbirth.
How can Hypnosis help?
The mind can be trained to experience discomfort as only pressure, and that is what is achieved in childbirth hypnosis. In addition, with labour, the more relaxed the mother is, the more comfort she will have.
Physical relaxation, using guided visualisations followed by positive hypnotic suggestions, is learned and practiced daily in preparation for birth. The subconscious mind is trained to believe that birth will be comfortable, easy and more enjoyable.
These sessions will teach you how to enter into self-hypnosis instantly, and create your own natural anaesthesia whenever and wherever you need it. You will have control over your body, and be able to be an active participant in your birth process. As labour progresses, you relax even more, trusting in your body’s natural ability to give birth with ease and comfort
