Giving Birth – Using Hypnosis for a Happier Mother and Baby!

Childbirth is extremely painful. This belief in our culture has spawned medical interventions to help women in giving birth. Unfortunately science can be exact but not entirely perfect. New methods are now being used for a healthier baby and a happier mother. Hypnosis is being used as an effective tool in having a safer childbirth.

As we grow up we will always come across a horrifying personal account of a relative. As kids it starts as ghost stories. As we move closer to adulthood this is replaced by trials and tribulations of previous experiences of family members. Sometimes adults don’t exactly give the best advice. They either sugar coat the fact or twist it to scare you enough.

In our culture we were brought up with the fact that childbirth is a test of will and tolerance. It involves a lot of pain, screaming and blood. In movies you will always see that women giving birth are drenched with sweat, screaming as if she’s giving birth to a pineapple.

This has prompted medicine to devise ways to relieving pain in childbirth. Through the centuries as medicine flourished modern technology evolved to fit the needs of the succeeding generations. Medication assisted delivery has 催乳香港 helped mothers give birth. Unfortunately medicine is as limited as its creators.

Medical interventions have been found to cause side effects. They may not occur in every delivery. In fact sometimes these medical interventions are actually needed. Some women don’t have the needed structure (the proper pelvis to be exact) to have a vaginal delivery. Others have compromised health conditions or complications that deem them too fragile to have a normal spontaneous birth.

For others who have a low risk pregnancy a natural childbirth will be the safest method. Natural childbirth is not martyrdom. It’s about having a safe childbirth without drugs and medical procedures that you don’t need in the first place.

The main difference between medication assisted delivery and natural childbirth is pain management. In response to this new techniques have been devised to help women in choosing natural childbirth.

Hypnosis has been used before anesthesia was introduced in medicine. The American Medical Association recognized it in the early 50’s as an indispensable tool in health care. Natural childbirth was prevalent in the 60’s and 70’s. The dawn of modern medicine and systemized health care has overshadowed this method in the last decades.

Contrary to popular belief hypnosis is not some magic trick. Hypnosis cannot be used to control a person against her will. The mother is the only one who can get in and out of a hypnotic state with the help of her hypnotherapist. Self-hypnosis is not going to take the mother’s mind lost in outer space. It will help her calm her mind and relax her body. This shortens the duration of childbirth and avoids unnecessary medical procedures such as a cesarean section, forcep delivery or vacuum extraction.

Giving birth using hypnosis gives the mother control over her childbirth. She can induce self-hypnosis to reduce pain. She can even convert pain into nothing more than a feeling of pressure when giving birth. It also encourages the participation of the husband or partner.

A mother’s contractions and gravity can delivery the baby without any medical intervention. Without the influence of drugs she will be able to use her body reflexes to push the baby out. She can deliver her baby at her own pace without being forced to push. Without any invasive procedures the mother will be able to recover faster
