What is Hypnosis for Childbirth?
Hypnosis is recognized by the American Medical Association and defined by the US Department of Labor as, “the bypass of the critical faculty of the conscious mind, followed by the enhanced ability to accept suggestion”.
Clinical hypnosis for medical purposes is used to slow pulse and respiration rates, lower blood pressure, and lessen or eliminate pain entirely. Doctors and dentists use this type of hypnotic conditioning with their patients to create “hypno-anesthesia” for their patients who are allergic to medical anesthesia. These doctors and dentists perform surgeries with no medical anesthesia, with no pain and no side-effects.
Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis teaches the same hypnosis techniques to expectant mothers, allowing them to experience their contractions as “pressure sensations” or as ‘”tight squeezing sensations”, greatly minimizing or eliminating labor discomfort.
Hypnobabies’ hypnosis training is easy to learn, practice and use in childbirth, and expectant mothers throughout the world are now using our program to safely prepare for a comfortable natural birth.
