Many first-time moms are anxious and fearful about their upcoming labour and delivery. Managing pain during childbirth is typically what women fear most and causes the most stress. Not managing this stress may lead to a more painful delivery or negative birth experience.
What is Hypnosis for Birthing?
Hypnosis for Birthing helps pregnant women prepare for childbirth. It is used to manage pain, create resilience, reduce stress, build confidence, promote bonding between mother and baby, and provide new moms with the best mental head-space to make informed choices during delivery.
Working with a trained professional, hypnosis provides the patient with the ability to relax the mind, while getting rid of stored stress in the body. It is a safe and inexpensive way to address stress, remove harmful thoughts about delivery, and bring a positive mindset to the birthing experience.
Hypnosis for Birthing has been documented as early as the 19th Century. Today, it is continuing to evolve and is gaining popularity around the world, helping pregnant women prepare for childbirth.
