I’ve been studying Hypnobabies since 20 weeks (I’m 37 weeks now) and finally had a chance to try out my mad hypnosis skillz today. I have a complete phobia of needles, like paralyzing, fainting bad. My midwife wanted to do a blood draw last week and I said no, let’s wait a week and I’ll come prepped for it.

This morning I did a Hypnobabies "Fear Release" hypnosis session but was still feeling nervous. So I get there today, go and lay down before the appointment and listen to one of my scripts on iPod. I told DH to have them draw the blood as quickly as they could without disturbing me while I was in hypnosis and relaxed. So I’m laying there and I feel her put on the band and wipe with alcohol and then a tickle on my arm like she brushed it with her finger. All of a sudden the band is off and I’m like *what the heck, she missed the vein!!!*. 

So I open my eyes and she says “All done, you did great!”. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously!!!!!

Last time I had my blood drawn I fainted and it took me 10 minutes to come around fully. This time I stood up and said “wow, that was it?” and walked into her exam room without batting an eye!!!

I am so jazzed to use this for birth now. Even if I just get to use hypnosis for blood draws for the rest of my life it would be totally worth it but now I completely believe it is going to be awesome for my birth and I can’t wait to share my birth story with everyone on the Moms Forum.
