Benefits of using hypnosis for childbirth
- Fewer drugs or no drugs at all means less risk of side effects on mother and baby
- Shorter labors – resistance of the birthing muscles as a response to pain is minimized or eliminated.
- An awake, energized mother, due to total relaxation throughout the birthing process.
- A calm, peaceful birthing environment.
- Breech and posterior babies can be turned using hypnosis.
- Fewer interventions and complications during labor.
- Babies who are better sleepers and nursers due to fewer drugs in their systems
How to study: Where do you start?There are choices open to couples who are ready to begin their hypno-journey, and it will benefit each one to research all of their options to find one that allows them to achieve their goal. They include: Choice # 1: You can seek out a childbirth hypnosis class in your area. Some are taught at local birth centers, holistic offices or the instructor’s homes. The backgrounds of instructors should include hypnosis training and childbirth education, both necessary for excellent results. Hypnobabies Instructors have both and are well-trained. Choice # 2: You can choose a self-study birth hypnosis course. To find one, you can do a search on the Internet for: “hypnosis, childbirth, self-study.” An adequate home study program will have detailed information on hypnosis and how to use it in childbirth, and hypno-tools for you to achieve your goals; books, tapes or CD’s, a course manual, handouts, hypnosis scripts. Since you will be studying on your own, it is your responsibility to gain as much knowledge as possible, so choose well. Hypnobabies is a complete childbirth course with real medical hypno-anesthesia, providing the most comprehensive childbirth hypnosis instruction. It is also extremely important to make sure that whatever birth hypnosis program you choose has excellent an ongoing support, both by telephone and e-mail. Hypnobabies has both, from our main office as well as dedicated instructors, home study supervisors and an online Hypnobabies Moms support group.
