Hypnotherapy can be used for a range of issues and birthing is just one area that can benefit. The expectant mother can use the techniques to achieve a calm and in control feeling.

According to The Northern Echo, expectant mothers are being offered the chance to learn some hypnosis techniques to aid them through labour.

The NHS run workshops will aim to make mums to be more relaxed, in control and calm as well as feeling prepared for the birth of their child. The complementary therapy will also be used to help reduce pain during childbirth, overcome any fears and anxieties about giving birth and breathing and relaxation techniques. Sue Symonds, community midwife for South Tees Trust added:

“Fear and anxiety can have a negative impact on your body during birth but the self hypnosis can help reduce this. It’s about learning how to achieve that deeply relaxed state of mind.”

This argument is strongly agreed with by the National Council for Hypnotherapy, an independent professional body which aims to connect the general public with hypnotists in the local area. The use of hypnosis has been highlighted by qualified members of the Council who recommend its use during labour.

“Hypnosis can be used for a range of issues and birthing is just one area that can benefit. The expectant mother can use the techniques to achieve a calm and in control feeling, enabling them to deal with the pain and discomfort experienced during childbirth.”
