Philosophy and Comments        

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 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 you 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 relaxation, without fear and tension that cause pain. Your body's natural anesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones that create pain.

When it is time for your baby to be born, you will be fully awake and involved.
