What is HypnoBirthing?
HypnoBirthing self-hypnosis is used in 2 different ways:
Firstly, to help women change any fearful, negative expectations of birth they might have to positive ones. When we move into trance the conscious, analytical side of the brain becomes side-tracked and we become much more open to suggestions (as we see with the stage hypnosis). Only suggestions that we are open to accepting will be useful though and for birth of course our focus is on building confidence that birth, without any special circumstances, can be a positive experience in which a woman remains, calm, relaxed and in control.
The second way in which HypnoBirthing helps is that women learn simple yet powerful techniques that ensure that they are able to remain emotionally and physically relaxed during labour enabling their body to work at its best. This in turn will also ensure that they are able to remain calm and in control throughout their labour no matter what turn their birthing takes.
