Hypno-birthing becoming Standard Practice

Posted by Mariah Shipp on

Hypno-birthing is the alternative birth method that midwives predict will be standard practice within a decade. Hospitals  are reporting a steep rise in the demand for classes in hypno-birthing, which focuses on relaxation and self-hypnosis during the birth process. This article in the guardian talks about the increased interest in hypno-birthing.

“Hypno-birthing works on the premise that it’s unnatural to have pain in labor in the first place and the root of the problem is fear. Women think of childbirth and they think of pain. Rarely do they think of what an incredibly empowering experience child birth is. When a woman goes into labor prepared, having learned the proper breathing, relaxation and visualization techniques through hypno-birthing, then birth becomes an amazing and wonderful experience.

When using hypno-birthing the body can work naturally to release endorphins, (the hormone that dulls the sensations in the part of the brain which registers pain). Most labor related pain is because of fear and tension, which can be diminished or completely eliminated with hypnotherapy.

The contractions are merely pressure and knowing this will help you to relax. Through hypno-birthing you will learn to let the contractions to do their own work and let your body flow with it's natural rhythms. Labor is a normal, physiological process and contractions of the uterus are no different from contractions of any other muscle of the body. You will learn natural anesthesia techniques to numb your body consciously and dull your nerves using self-hypnosis .
