Hypnotherapy in pregnancy and childbirth is about preparing the mother and the partner for their birth of the baby, and to enable them to experience a calmer, more comfortable and stress-free birth, as far as possible.
So, for example, how does hypnosis for pregnancy and childbirth work?
Hypnotherapy can help to eliminate any fears, misconceptions, apprehension, nausea and tensions at each stage of the pregnancy. When a woman feels fear during childbirth, her body releases stress hormones that trigger the body's "fight or flight" response. This causes muscles to tighten and interferes or may delay the expansion and birthing process. By training the subconscious mind through hypnotherapy to expect a safe, gentle birth, women may help avoid going into the fight-or-flight state, allowing for a smoother birth.
As each stage of pregnancy and childbirth is special to you, so each hypnotherapy session will be tailored to meet your individual personal needs and requirements.
