What Is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a naturally induced state of relaxed concentration
- a state of mind and body in which we communicate
suggestions to our subconscious mind. This part of our mind
influences what we think, how we feel, and the choices we
make.It can actually control pain.
There is no magic to achieving success with self-hypnosis.
Almost anyone who chooses to can reach deep relaxation
and redirected focus.
When having your baby with HypnoBirthing®, what you will
experience is similar to the daydreaming or focusing that
occurs when you are engrossed in a book or staring at a fire.
You will be conversant and in good spirits -totally relaxed, but
fully in control. You will be aware of your body's contractions
but will be able to determine the extent to which you feel the
surge. You will experience your birthing in an atmosphere of
calm and relaxtion, without fear and tension that cause pain.
Your body's natural anesthesia (endorphins) will replace the
stress hormones that create pain.
When it's time for your baby to be born, you will be fully
awake and invovled.
