All childbirth Hypnosis Courses are not created equal.
There are several very important elements that are essential for a birthing hypnosis program to be the most effective, and Hypnobabies Childnbirth Hypnosis included all of them. We are focused on hypnosis, as well as a complete childbirth education.
All hypnosis courses should include a detailed and comprehensive childbirth education curriculum so that participants do not need to attend any other childbirth course. It is extremely important that expectant parents focus only on the birth hypnosis courses language, hypnosis suggestions, and most importantly , its philosophies of having an easier, more comfortable birth. In doing so, they remain unaffected by the "pain-coping" or " labor medication availability" messages that are taught in other childbirth classes.
Yeah… but does it really work?
The following are statistics from our founders class students over several years:
Comfortable labors – 70-75% Women who report that they felt mostly pressure or tightening sensations. Most of these women describe their labor as “pain-free”
Comfortable until transition – 10-15% Pressure only, until the 10-60 minute transitional period, with mild to intense degrees of sensation thereafter. “Very manageable.”
Comfortable until active labor – 10% with mild to intense degrees of sensation thereafter. This group can have any number of things that affect their birth experiences: posterior or mal-presentations that do not resolve, other labor complications, emotional issues, lack of support, or they simply did not do their homework (30 – 35 minutes a day)! Hypnosis won’t help someone that is not willing to do the work involved in preparing for her baby’s birth.
