I am often asked about HypnoBirthing and if it is possible to relax while giving birth. Now ladies, I know that I am a guy and that I don’t know much about giving birth, but I do know that over the years numerous female clients have come to me to learn hypnosis for delivery of their baby. During a phone call last week from an expecting Mom I referred her to this CNN article. After sharing it with her partner that night, she called the next day to schedule their hypnosis sessions. Relaxation is such an important component for giving birth. Orange Blossom, my free hypnosis MP3 download is played in delivery rooms around the world.
HypnoBirthing: Relax while giving birth?
CNN, August 12, 2011: Instead of contractions, they’re called surges. And don’t call it labor, it’s birthing. When the discomfort of childbirth kicks in, it’s pressure — not pain.
The philosophy behind HypnoBirthing is to remove the fear of giving birth, its practitioners say. They believe that by training themselves to calm their body and mind to a state of self-hypnosis, they can reduce pain and discomfort.
It does not promise pain-free childbirth.
“The difference is that we’re saying let us teach you what happens within the body,” said Marie Mongan, a hypnotherapist who founded the HypnoBirthing Institute. “What we’re doing is educating them about what is happening within the body.”
“The body knows how to birth the baby, just like it knew how to grow that baby for nine months,” Poplar said. “I’m teaching the moms the skills to listen to their bodies and the power of the uterus to do the work.”
