Why would you have natural childbirth? Why would you want to feel all that pain? You wouldn’t get a tooth pulled without drugs, why would you give birth without drugs?
Not a perfect comparison
Why? Think back to when you were little kid and your teeth fell out on their own.
Did you need anesthesia for that? No, it may have hurt a little, but it wasn’t agonizing. Why? It wasn’t horrible, because your teeth were meant to fall out!
But it can be a powerful analogy when you look at it this way…
Mind Shift – Dental Work and Hypnosis
Well, I had a huge mind shift when I saw videos of people getting dental work without drugs using hypnosis! There was a man getting a root canal without drugs? Wasn’t he in agony? NO! He felt totally comfortable.
A woman getting her front teeth pulled and implants put in, all without anesthesia. Was she freaking out? No, but I was freaking out just watching her! It made my teeth ache just to watch.
Right there shows the incredible power of our mind! If my teeth can hurt just watching her, then can our mind be powerful enough to create pressure, where there is usually pain?
This leads me to the question:
If hypnosis can work for dental surgery, can it work for birth?
Yes it can! And it works even easier than for teeth. Why? Remember birth is a natural process and dental surgery isn’t.
Do you think your body is made to give birth? Yes, a mom’s body knows just how to give birth. It is a matter of our minds and fears getting out of its way!
Did you know that your uterus has 2 opposing muscles in it? The inner horizontal muscles hold your cervix closed and the outer vertical muscles help to open your cervix.
All mammals uterus are like this, because it helps them escape from predators. If you were a gazelle giving birth and suddenly a lion snuck up on you, your body needs a way to stop birth.
The fight flight hormone (adrenaline) causes the inner horizontal muscles to stop your cervix from opening. When the two muscles are fighting against each other it causes pain.
But if a mom can let go of her fears and stay deeply relaxed then her birthing muscles can work in harmony and birthing comfortably is possible. When you add the power of medical grade hypnosis on top of your body’s natural ability to birth, then you have an amazing recipe for an Enjoyable Birth!
Staying comfortable with no medication!
Wait a minute you say! I have tons of fears about birth! How am I going to let them go? Luckily hypnosis can help with that as well. (more on that in a moment)
I wanted to have the benefits of natural childbirth.
- Freedom of movement
- No catheter
- No drugs
- Easier Pushing
- Amazing hormones
- Better for baby!
BUT I didn’t want the pain. So I tried hypnosis for childbirth with my last two births.
My 1st birth using hypnosis
My first birth had been an emergency cesarean, so I had a lot of fear lingering from that experience when I got pregnant with my 2nd baby. The program I used was…
•More Guided Relaxation than Hypnosis
–Gave me confidence and helped me let go of my fears.
–I didn’t have enough tools so I lost focus
–I chose to get an epidural (remember I didn’t want pain)
–Great Birth for me – my goal was a VBAC
–The program was helpful and I was glad I used it.
My 2nd birth using hypnosis
For my next birth I looked for a more complete childbirth hypnosis program. I knew that hypnosis could work for birth, but I needed more tools. I wanted deeper hypnosis, more tools and a CD especially for my birthing day. I found all that I wanted in Hypnobabies.
– Like Dentist’s patients
– Lots of CD’s including Fear Release
– Cues to enter hypnosis instantly and deepen
– CD just for Birthing Day!
– How birth works (where I learned about amazing uterus)
– Staying Low Risk
– Choices during birth
Did it work? See for yourself.
It worked beautifully. I was able to stay calm and focused for all 18 hours of my birth. I felt pressure and it was pretty intense the last hour, but it wasn’t painful, just powerful!
So indeed Hypnosis can help moms have comfortable childbirth!
Want to Avoid Pain?
If your main reason for avoiding Natural Childbirth is to avoid pain, then check into Hypnobabies. You can discover the power of your body and mind to create a comfortable natural childbirth.
Still want an Epidural?
If you are the type of mom who says sign me up for the epidural in the parking lot, then check into Hypnobabies. Then you will have the tools to stay comfortable from the time your birth begins until whenever you decide to get the epidural. Why have discomfort walking from the parking lot to the hospital and waiting for your epidural if you don’t have to? (Not to mention, getting an epidural is not guaranteed! It is great to have other tools ready to use just in case!)
Want help dealing with Fears?
If you want some tools to help you deal with your fears regarding birth, then check into Hypnobabies. I think almost all moms today have some fears regarding birth, because we are bombarded by negative information regarding birth from the television, our friends and family. With Hypnobabies you are able to create a Bubble of Peace to keep all that negativity out. There is also a Fear Release CD to help you release your fears.
Just want to sleep better?
If you think this is totally nuts, but want to sleep better during your pregnancy and feel more relaxed about being pregnant and birth, then check into Hypnobabies. I ended up loving Hypnobabies so much, I became a Hypnobabies instructor. My best friend was pregnant at the time, so she took my class just because I needed a guinea pig to practice on. She never thought it would work. She only listened to the CDs because they helped her sleep better at night and she loved how confident she felt about her upcoming birth. (She had a cesarean with her first baby and was planning on a VBAC.) But still didn’t think it would work when her birth started, but was thrilled when it did! She had a comfortable un-medicated VBAC. She said that even if it hadn’t of worked for her birth, she still would have been happy she used it because of the relaxation and confidence it gave her.
Comfortable Childbirth using Hypnobabies!
Why would you have natural childbirth? Why would you want to feel all that pain? Well, I didn’t want the pain. But I wanted the natural childbirth and with Hypnobabies I was able to have natural childbirth comfortably!
