Childbirth Made Easier
Childbirth Made Easier
As a mother myself, I truly understand the benefits of hypnosis, not only during childbirth, but during the pregnancy as well.
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. Suggestion is given to the subconscious mind to believe that birth will be comfortable, easy and more enjoyable.
Fear and Expectation
In other cultures, childbirth is regarded as a natural, normal event in a woman’s life. The women in labour are given support from other women, and children are often present 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.
As a result, 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 painful and agonising work, to be faced with fear and trepidation. We experience pain in childbirth, in part, because we very much expect to!

I teach the benefits of self-hypnosis to enable a relaxed approach to the baby’s birth and not necessarily just with the mum-to-be, dads are invited too, so they remain calm under pressure and play an active role in the birth.
