WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING?
Hypnobirthing is a birthing method that uses self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques to help a woman feel physically, mentally and spiritually prepared and reduce her awareness of fear, anxiety and pain during childbirth.
Hypnobirthing techniques teach mothers how to release all prior programming about birth to free herself of limiting thoughts and emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and resistant muscles. When giving birth with Hypnobirthing, a mother is not in a trance or asleep but instead in a state of deep relaxation. She is awake, aware and fully in control which allows for a much more tranquil birthing process.
Our Hypnobirthing classes teach participants to practice and use a combination of music, visualization, positive thinking and words to relax the body and control sensations during labor with hypnosis. Keep in mind that Hypnobirthing can also be used in combination with many other birthing techniques
HISTORY OF HYPNOBIRTHING
The use of hypnosis for more comfortable childbirth has a long and distinguished history. The first documentation is from the 1920s in Russia. Doctor Platanov was well known for his hypno-obstetric success. Ferdinand Lamaze learned hypnotic techniques during a visit to Russia and brought them back to France where he developed the Lamaze Method, that is still used today. He called it, “childbirth without pain through the psychological method.”
