An article came across my inbox from a colleague that I’d like to share with you here on my website. It pertains to the use of hypnosis to reduce all the problems that arise during labor and childbirth.
To quote directly from the article,
To deal with fear, overcome anxiety associated with pregnancy and labour, to increase self-confidence and trust in your body’s natural ability to give birth, hypnosis techniques can therefore greatly reduce, if not eliminate the fear and tension, which leads to severe pain during the birthing process.
Using the science of neuroplasticity, hypnosis is able to channel endorphins during the birthing process, only after the hypnotist, such as myself, has walked the expectant mother through the process several times mentally and emotionally.
For example, I would hypnotize the woman’s subconscious usually a carefully tailored induction a half-a-dozen times, so that by the time she actually gives birth, she is neurologically rewired to counteract the pain, anxiety, and fear. Because on a day like that, who needs to feel anything but extreme joy?
