What if you didn’t have to accept any of the usual answers to “what does labor feel like?” What if there was a better, more natural way to experience an easier and more comfortable childbirth without inserting a needle in your spine?
I have good news for you!
Before I share it, take a moment to close your eyes and focus on the birth of your baby. Notice the sights and sounds. Who is there with you? Notice how you feel.
There. You just imagined it.
Now imagine yourself feeling completely confident in that moment, secure and safe, supported, loved, happy, powerful, and even totally relaxed and comfortable throughout your labor with absolutely no drugs in your system.
It sounds like a gimmick, but you can achieve this while in a comfortable, calm state – much more easily than you might think – with the powerful techniques taught in Hypnobabies childbirth preparation classes.
We teach moms a special technique called Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis, allowing her to move around and talk during her birth while remaining completely comfortable.
My students learn to produce amazingly powerful effects in their very own minds. This form of deep mental relaxation produces a peaceful state during childbirth, and allows contractions to be experienced as only waves of pressure and gentle stretching sensations.
If hypnosis seems like a strange concept to you, I totally get it. But unfortunately it’s just the terminology that seems to turn people off. But just know that it isn’t something that someone else does to control you. It comes from within.
The comfort measures you choose can have a profound effect on the birth of your baby. I encourage you to research your options further before assuming anything. In childbirth, there is more to pain management than meets the eye.
To begin your research on epidurals and alternative pain management, here are some articles and websites you may want to check out:
