Kate Middleton planning to use hypnobirthing in
labour – what is it?
As it’s reported that the Duchess of Cambridge will use Hypnotherapy when she has the royal baby, we reveal what it is and if it actually works as a pain relief method
Louise Baker Senior Hypnotherapist at Marlow Hypnotherapy explains that ” the body can create natural relief form the discomfort of birth , that isn’t in questionas on the NHS there are currently operations taking place without anaesthetic and that’s not theory. During Hypnobirthing classes Mums are taught how to enter deeply relaxed states so deep that with the aid of their breath, suggestion and visualisation they are able to create new responses to their birthing experience. Classes take place either privately or in very small groups as this is a skill that can be learnt for a great experience both mum and birthing partner are taught how to go into hypnosis, how to deal with medical staff around them and how to listen to instructions but not the programming language of pain and discomfort. I have had many clients give birth using this process and now train other hypnotherapists to use it “
