I love this blog post about a mom who is learning Hypnobabies
I would have never thought of myself as the sort of person who “believed” in hypnosis. Sure, they said something about it in medical school, something about it being used for people who were allergic to all anesthesia.
She then goes onto explain why she decided to look into Hypnobabies.
In my research about different childbirth methods, I started reading more about hypnobirthing, which led to Hypnobabies. Hypnobabies teaches medical hypnosis together with education about everything from nutrition and exercise to various procedures that might be offered and how to decide whether or not to accept them. The method is specifically designed to create not just a non-drugged delivery, but a peaceful, easy delivery.
Peaceful is not what most people in our culture think of when we hear the word “childbirth” but in fact, it is not the dramatic emergency that is portrayed on television.
Then shares how it is already helping her way before her birth!
After a rousing success during a blood draw, Tim suggested I start using these techniques while nursing Charlie, which has become a fairly difficult and negative experience in the last few weeks.
