A natural, pain and drug free birth is something that every woman wants and also every baby!
Women using hypnosis and positive visualisations before and during childbirth have noticed many benefits. Among the most usual are:
– Deep Relaxation
– Deeper and more restful sleep both before and after the birth
– Feeling less worried and anxious about the birth
– Lower blood pressure
– Labour more often than not begins spontaneously and there is less need for an induction
When fewer or no drugs are used there is less risk of any side effects for both mother and baby Labour is shorter. When the mother is relaxed and not in pain the muscles in the uterus contract more strongly.
When suggestions have been absorbed during trance for being able to stay relaxed and in control no matter what happens, the mother can remain calm, stay in trance and work with the hospital staff in a manner that helps everyone
– The atmosphere in the labour ward remains peaceful and tranquil
– Generally fewer interventions are needed and fewer complications arise
– Babies sleep and feed better when they have fewer drugs in their systems.
Altogether, there are many reasons for using Hypnosis and Self-hypnosis and none against. It cannot cause harm in any way whatsoever when used as directed.
