I am scared of hypnosis. Will I be made to do anything embarrassing?
Hypnotherapy helps you reach deeply relaxed state which can be safely achieved by all with practice and a desire to do so. The portrayal of hypnosis in the media has given a false impression of hypnotherapy and its power. Hypnosis is simply a deep state of physical, mental and emotional relaxation occurring alongside a heightened sense of awareness. You will have been in similar states when ‘zoning out’, reading, driving and watching TV. It is nothing to be afraid of.
Does Hypnosis Work?
Absolutely, there are many positive birth experiences reported citing HypnoBirthing as playing a massive role in parents achieving a positive, natural birthing experience. Even those who needed intervention still maintain that using the HypnoBirthing techniques allowed them to remain calm and empowered when circumstances deviated from their initial hopes.
Will I be in a trance or ‘out of it’?
No you will take yourself into a deeply relaxed state. You will be fully in control of yourself and aware of everything around you.
Who is HypnoBirthing® Suitable for?
All mums to be, whether you’re a first timer or a seasoned pro on your second, third, fourth…
HypnoBirthing can be particularly helpful for those who have had a bad experience previously and want a different experience this time around.
Are you telling me I will have a completely pain-free labour and birth?
No I am afraid not. There are many factors that can affect a birth, some of which are outside our control. The key aim of HypnoBirthing is to have calm, gentle and comfortable birthing experience. Many factors may influence birthing and a lot of them are not under your control. What is under your control however is preparation and practicing of HypnoBirthing techniques which will increase your chances of having them be successful.
That being said the HypnoBirthing Institute reports that
“arouPagesnd 65-70% of HypnoBirthing mums don’t need any form of pain relief. Nearly all the mums in this category simply don’t experience any pain – just pressure. Around a further 20-25% only require something mild, like gas and air.The remaining 5-10% usually fall into what we call ‘special circumstances’, where medical intervention is required. However, the HypnoBirthing mums still tell us that HypnoBirthing really helped – even if they were induced, or ended up with a caesarean”.
Does my birth partner have to attend?
Ideally yes, it is important for the birth partner to attend the classes for them to fully understand their role. If the intended birth partner is unable to attend please bring along someone else (sister, mother, friend etc) to experience the classes with you if possible. If nobody can come with you don’t worry, there are still plenty of benefits you can get from the classes.
There is no teacher in my area or I am too close to my birthing time – help!
