Hypnobirthing: Dispelling The Greatest Myth About Childbirth And Labour

What thoughts and feelings come to mind when you hear the words labour and childbirth? If you’re like most ladies (who haven’t yet heard of Hypnobirthing) you’ll probably start to feel fear, and get quite nervous and uncomfortable.

Ask any expectant mother about the upcoming birth of her child, and watch as most will begin to squirm. Their pulse will start to race, anxiety will creep in, and they’ll get nervous with fear. Fear of the pain she believes she’s going to experience during childbirth.

Then, when she goes into labour, she’s gotten herself so worked up and worried about the pain, that that’s what she gets ... a long, tense, and painful labour followed by an exhausting delivery. Or perhaps she got herself so worried about the imminent pain that she opted for the drugs that are negatively affecting both mom and baby.

In either scenario, it is actually the FEAR of pain that is causing the difficulty.

The greatest myth about childbirth is that it does NOT need to be accompanied by pain. Thanks to hypnobirthing, it is possible to have a natural childbirth that is easy, fast, and pain-free.

The female body is designed to conceive, nurture, and deliver babies. Since the beginning of time that’s what women have been expected to do - to procreate. Our bodies are designed to do it. Simply eliminate the fear and pain, and allow the body to function as it’s meant to.

However, for many women, that’s easier said than done. The negative and frightening thoughts about labour are deeply engraved in the brain.

That’s where a hypnobirth comes into play. Hypnobirthing allows moms to reprogram their minds and release the fear. They can erase all the negative talk that we’ve all heard about labour, and train their minds (and their muscles) to relax ... to be open and excited for the birth of their baby.

How Does Hypnobirthing Work? 
By simply closing her eyes, relaxing, and listening to a self-hypnosis audio each day in the weeks leading up to the big day, ladies can choose to take control of their bodies, their minds, and their muscles. These audios will help them to deeply relax, and visualize each contraction as something positive ... each contraction is bringing her closer to her baby.

This is positive programming that’s going straight to the subconscious mind. Having a natural childbirth IS possible. Giving birth naturally can be fast, easy, and pain free!

Imagine this ... 
Imagine going into labour not expecting pain. Instead, imagine going into labour with a positive feeling of excitement knowing that each contraction is bringing you closer to your baby. Imagine feeling relaxed all through labour. Do you think the natural childbirth experience would be easier?

Here’s the deal - when mom is relaxed in the mind, her muscles are relaxed. This enables baby to move much easier through the birth canal and make his (or her) grand appearance. When relaxed, natural childbirth is calm, serene and pain-free.

Yes - there is discomfort. There are contractions. Muscles are pushing baby out. But labour does NOT have to be painful. Through hypnobirthing we can reprogram our minds to see natural childbirth and labour as the positive and wonderful experience that nature intended it to be.

Options For Having a Hypnobirth: 
There are many options to learn more, and to have a hypnobirth:

1. Hypnobirthing courses are offered in many locations around the world. These courses are great as they train in a group setting about releasing the fear.

2. Personal one-on-one sessions with a qualified hypnotherapist are also an excellent option.

3. There are also many books on the subject of hypnobirthing.
I recommend: Hypnobirthing: The Mongan Method: A Natural Approach to a Safe, Easier, More Comfortable Birthing [With CD].
4. Another option that is gaining popularity is a hypnobirthing home study course. There are a few programs on the market that offer self-hypnosis audios. Simply listen to these audios in the weeks leading up to the labour. You’ll be able to erase the fear, and go into the birth relaxed and filled with confidence and excitement.

I recommend the Hypnobabies Home Study Course for Expectant Mothers. It’s a fabulous, very detailed course, that thousands of ladies have had amazing success with! Click the link to learn more: Hypnobabies Home Study Course for Expectant Mothers Plus 2 Bonus Cds.

Many ladies are giving birth naturally, easily, and with absolutely no pain! I recommend looking into Hypnobirthing to see if a natural childbirth is possible for you too!

And just imagine ... if you can use hypnosis to have a wonderful, pain-free natural childbirth, what else can you do?  You have incredible power within you.  You can use the power of your own mind to make incredible transformations from within.

This is one of the best post I have come across so far. Pain and fear are one of the major reason why many of them don't go through this process. The question of safety also arises at the end. But the fact is like mentioned above that this is less painful than people actually think or probably painless. The whole guide just teaches you to control each and every part of your body and make this a natural process for you.
