5. Avoid giving birth on the back and follow the body’s urges to push - lead author Joyce DiFranco, RN, BSN, LCCE, FACCE

We teach about many different positions moms can push in.  Upright is better, because it opens the pelvis more and gravity can also assist in the baby descending.

We also teach about mother directed pushing.  Purple pushing (yelling 1, 2, 3, 4…) is not a necessary thing for un-medicated moms.  It is better for mom to follow her body and push in a way that feels best for her!

3. Bring a loved one, friend, or doula for continuous support - lead authors Jeanne Green, MT, CD(DONA), LCCE, FACCE, and Barbara A. Hotelling, MSN, CD(DONA), LCCE, FACCE

We learn about this in class 3 and we teach the birth partner how to provide the best support throughout the Hypnobabies Class series.  It is very helpful for mom to have someone their to support her continuously throughout her birthing time.  Ideally this person will know about her hypnosis tools and cues.

For single moms without this option, Hypnobabies is actually a great choice as well, because it is set up so a single mom can do it on her own.  With the CDs you will have the continuous support of Kerry’s voice throughout your birth as well.

2. Walk, move around, and change positions throughout labor - lead author Teri Shilling, MS, CD(DONA), IBCLC, LCCE, FACCE

Another great tool to help your birthing time go more quickly and easily.

Hypnobabies is great, because it is eyes open childbirth hypnosis.  Moms using Hypnobabies are able to open their eyes, walk, talk, shower, sit on birth balls, do pretty much anything!  By following their body in moving to different positions, it helps their baby move down and out more quickly!

Avoid Interventions

4. Avoid interventions that are not medically necessary - lead author Judith A. Lothian, RN, PhD, LCCE, FACCE

My favorite class to teach is class 3, when we cover all the choices a mom may have before, during and after her birthing time.  We talk about the pros and cons and that way mom and dad will know when an intervention is necessary.

Often while birthing in a hospital, they offer interventions to everyone, whether needed or not.  It is just their routine.  If you educate yourself on your choices, it will help you to know what the best decision for YOU is!

I am Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Hypnobabies Instructor, as
well as a Yoga teacher. I have been practicing yoga for almost 20 years, and
have been working with women applying various modalities for the past 12.

My focus is to work with women at any stage of their lives, but particularly
during the pregnancy and postpartum stage. Teaching Hypnobabies has been
very rewarding for me, as in my other offerings I typically work with mom
alone, and in Hypnobabies class I get to work with dad/partners as well.
They need this! The partners often feel left out of the whole process, and
worry about their role during their child’s birth.  Hypnobabies offers so
much to the couple, much more they can imagine.  It brings them together so
well, empowering them both to feel ready to welcome their child into the
world in a gentle way.
Please see my website for more information.

The Birth Survey.

My sister in law was inspired to have a homebirth for her third (in part by me) but did not study Hypnobabies.  As she started her birthing time on sunday, I sent her a quick email simply saying “Enjoy your birth.”. These are words you gals so often say here.

It turns out that those three words transformed, in that instant, my SIL’s perspective on her impending birthing time.  She said it was so encouraging and gave her a helpful,  healthy perspective.  I can’t wait to hear the specifics.  It brought me to tears knowing that I could have such an impact on someone like that during such a major life event…and without even trying!

The trickle down theory at work with Hypnobabies…

BBC Interview on hypnosis

It was nice to hear a doc proposing that hypno-anesthesia can help make some medical procedures safer and save costs even, and that it should be made more readily available!


I am not sure I agree with this doc’s estimation that 25 percent of adults are ‘not hypnotize-able’ though. I have been taught by more than one instructor that anyone of average intelligence, who can follow verbal directions, and who wants to be hypnotized can be.
 
 
There is no difference between the hypnosis that this doc was talking about and what our Hypnobabies moms learn, since ALL hypnosis is SELF hypnosis, because we allow it to happen, and deepen, and accept suggestions or not.
