Hypnosis for Childbirth at OM Toronto

Would you like to have your baby naturally, easily and comfortably as possible without the use of drugs or surgical interventions?  Please read on.  
Pregnancy should be a time of preparation, relaxation and looking forward to the birth of your child, but it is sometimes a time of worry and anxiety. The good intentions of friends and family can create fears and doubts about what to expect during pregnancy, labour and delivery. Hypnosis can help!
Hypnosis for childbirth, sometimes call Hypno-Birthing, is based on the concept that utilizing hypnosis can reduce or often completely eliminate the perception of pain associated with labour. It teaches the labouring mother to relax her body fully and thus release fear and resistance to the natural process of birth. The deeply relaxed state that is achieved during labour helps accelerate the birthing process and create a natural and positive birthing experience. 

But isn't labour supposed to be painful?
Well actually no.  During labour, a woman's body produces endorphins, which are extremely powerful natural pain-relieving chemicals.  In fact, endorphins are 18 to 20 times more powerful than Morphine.  Even better, naturally produced endorphins are completely safe for both mother and baby. 
However fear during labour produces catecholamines that counteract endorphins leading to a vicious cycle of fear then tension that causes pain that increases fear that leads to more tension and so on.
The good news is that self-hypnosis, if practised before the onset of labour produces a deep level of calm and serenity, therefore, eliminating the fear - tension - pain cycle.

Did you know that Hypnosis during Childbirth:
a) reduces or eradicates fear, tension and pain before during and after your labour and delivery,
b) gives you control over your labour and birth,
c) reduces or eliminates the need for pain medication,
d) allows you to be conscious and cooperative with your midwife or physician, 
e) allows you to speed up or slow down your labour,  
f) increases your confidence about birthing naturally,
g) unlike medication, hypnosis does not cause extra stress on the circulatory, respiratory, hepatic or renal systems, 
h) reduces or eliminates fatigue during labour and after delivery, 
i) it shortens labour time by approximately 2 to 4 (or more) hours for most mothers,
j) eases delivery, 
k) requires no elaborate education, only a willingness to use it,
l) allows for faster healing time and recovery, 
m) significantly decreases the risk of mothers becoming depressed after birth (postpartum depression).  On average 15% of women will experience some form of postpartum depression, in women who use hypnosis, it is only 5%.
