Here is one that caught my attention, as quoted from Molly’s blog.
This one is from a book I love called Transformation Through Birth:
“There are many women who delivered their children naturally who swear by [a specific birthing method]. It is sad to see so many women credit a technique rather than themselves and their own inner resources for their birthing experiences. Women who birth joyfully do so because of who they are, what they believe, and how they live.” (emphasis mine)
That last sentence is what really struck me. “Women who birth joyfully do so because of who they are, what they believe, and how they live”
I think that is one reason why for ME hypnosis helped me have the birth I wanted. It helped change what I believed.
After my first birth, bedrest, Preterm labor, emergency cesarean at 34 weeks, I didn’t believe my body could carry a baby full term, deliver vaginally… but with hypnosis I was able to change my beliefs about my body and birth.
So, while I think it is possible for many women to birth joyfully without certain programs. For moms who need extra help changing their beliefs about birth, Hypnobabies is a great tool to help with that! Sadly in today’s society most women don’t develop positive beliefs about birth on their own.
I guess I do credit Hypnobabies for the wonderful birth I had with Bryson. But I guess I really feel I got tools and helped change my beliefs with Hypnobabies and that helped ME to have a wonderful birth. Because my wonderful birth did stem from what I believe!
