The ‘Hypnobabies’ childbirth hypnosis program is not right for every mom, but is it right for you?

I find in my doula practice that birth is often mind over matter. If a mom-to-be has an overwhelming fear of birth, you can most certainly expect that she will be in need of pain medications. Fear of pain during birth creates a cycle of pain where whenever a contraction will come on mom-to-be will tense up – therefore causing her body to be in more pain. If mom is not able to relax then this becomes an endless cycle of discomfort that is not easy to handle for any woman.

Childbirth Fears: Doulas Can Help

I consider it part of my job as a doula to help Mom walk through many of these fears before she goes into labor, if she wishes to give birth without the use of pain medication. American medicine and culture has created childbirth as an experience to be greatly feared. Just watch the depictions on television and in movies! Eyes glazed with terror and pain, screams of agony – it’s no wonder many moms believe it is going to be the worst pain they will experience on earth.

For those moms who desire to have a natural birth, but also believe with all their heart that they can’t handle the pain, the Hypnobabies program can be an amazing help in reprogramming the mind to think of childbirth has a natural process.

Labor Pains and Hypnosis

Let’s get real here, childbirth can be painful – although, it is not painful for every mom. Pain can have a purpose, but every mom is different. If you are fearful that you will be in intense pain during childbirth, but don’t want to use traditional medications such as the epidural, consider looking into the Hypnobabies program.

In my experience, the program really can lessen or even completely take away the pain of childbirth – yet Mom still experiences every part of the birth of her baby. With the self-hypnosis techniques in this program, you are still fully engaged in the birth without the fear of pain, which creates a relaxing, gentle experience.

Abuse and Childbirth

Childbirth can be a traumatic experience if a mother has experienced sexual abuse and she has not dealt with it appropriately before her labor begins. I highly recommend this program if you have a sexually-abusive past and would like to reprogram your mind to think about birth appropriately without the burden of your abuse to come up during your labor. It may also be helpful to find a professionally trained counselor to work through this past as well – before labor begins.

  1. I have a high pain tolerance and had both of my children without the use of pain medication, but I have to admit I could have/would have used some help if hypnosis was available at that time!
