Q&A: I’m 36 wks pregnant and was wondering if anyone had any advice on hypnobirthing. I’m very worried about the second stage of labour and how to get through it. I’d really appreciate all thoughts. This is my third and have had previous traumatic experiences. I’m hoping to have a water birth and be drug free.
Many people hear the term HypnoBirthing and because they relate hypnosis to the most common form people see – Stage Hypnosis – they don’t really understand what it is or how it could possible help with having a baby. What follows is a brief explanation of what HypnoBirthing is, how it can help woman wanting a natural, drug-free and intervention-free birth, what is involved in attending a class and how and when is best to do so.
