Hypno Birthing

Women using hypnosis and positive visualisations before and during childbirth have noticed many benefits. Among the most usual are:

  • Deeper and more restful sleep both before and after the birth
  • Feeling less worried and anxious about the birth
  • Less worried about life issues in general
  • Fewer digestive problems and less heartburn
  • Lower blood pressure – this can be immensely important to anyone susceptible to high blood pressure, which causes pre-eclampsia
  • 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 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. Pain can create resistance in the muscles to contract. Oxytocin levels, the hormone in control of the strength and duration of the contractions, are as they should be and not reduced by stress.
  • A shorter, relaxed labour means that the mother has more energy
  • 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 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

Clients usually have at least 4 sessions during their pregnancy starting with the Free Initial Consultation which lasts for about an hour. It is beneficial for the birthing partner to attend sessions too if desired
