A holistic pregnancy and childbirth recognize the impact of the mind and spirit, as well as the physical body, on the experience of pregnancy and birth. Physical health, values and beliefs, relationships, emotional wellbeing, and spirituality all affect pregnancy and birth. In turn, the experiences of pregnancy and birth influence body, mind, and spirit. A holistic approach to pregnancy and childbirth also recognizes that a woman’s body is naturally designed to conceive, nourish, and give birth to a baby. It trusts the natural progression of pregnancy and labor.
Hypnosis and related techniques can prepare you for labor and delivery. One particular version of hypnosis during the birthing process is referred to as Hypnobirthing. At its core, Hypnobirthing aims to help a woman deal with any fear or anxiety she may have around birth. It involves various relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques to help relax the body before and during labor and birth. The idea is that when the body and mind are in a completely relaxed state, birth can happen more quickly and painlessly because the body doesn’t fight the natural process. Hypnobirthing utilizes controlled breathing, guided visualization, and a focus on positive thoughts and words.
