Natal hypnotherapy is a way of teaching pregnant women relaxation techniques that they can use in the run up to giving birth and for the birth itself.

The Duchess of Cambridge recently gave birth to her son Prince George and it is believed that during her pregnancy the Duchess turned to natal hypnotherapy before the birth - reports the Bolton News on July 17.

The practise, which is also becoming popular with stars such as Nell McAndrew, is a technique that uses the natural state of hypnosis, deep relaxation and the power of suggestion to enhance a pregnancy and the birthing experience.

Natalie Qureshi, who works for Natal Hypnotherapy said: “There’s a rumour that Kate Middleton is using our Natal Hypnotherapy CDs. If she is then, that’s great, hopefully she will talk about it in the future and it will help decrease this fear and anxiety that we have about giving birth.

“Natal hypnotherapy is a way of teaching pregnant women relaxation techniques that they can use in the run up to giving birth and for the birth itself. Relaxing and breathing deeply are the two best things that a woman can do to help her feel calm and ease anxiety surrounding the birth.”

The National Council for Hypnotherapy connects members of the general public with professional, skilled hypnotists throughout the UK who are qualified to practise hypnobirthing as well as a wide range of issues such as stopping smoking, weight loss and anxiety. A spokesperson from the company said:

“In our culture there is a lot of fear and apprehension around giving birth which can in turn make it much more painful and difficult. But hypnosis can work at a subconscious level to change instinctive perceptions of birth and allow it to be seen as a positive experience that enables mothers to trust their bodies.”

Those looking for help with smoking, weight, anxiety, panic attacks, habits and phobias may be helped by local NCH accredited therapists, look for the NCH seal of approval on their websites.
