The pursuit of wellness is not just about healthy intake of food or exercising regularly. It’s about getting rid of scary thoughts that make us slaves to negativity as well. Hypnobirthing is fast becoming a popular method of giving birth because of its focus on positivity. It empowers the woman to give birth as nature intended us to – pain-free, free from fear, serene, and in control.
In this article, discover the five amazing facts you should know about Hypnobirthing.
More Than Pain Management
Most childbirth preparation classes make you focus on managing pain naturally. Hypnobirthing is much more than that. This method teaches that mind controls your body completely and helps mothers to prepare for birth with deep relaxation techniques, happy thoughts, making the right birth choices, and even letting go of fear and tension.
Encourages Positive Thinking
There’s a saying that goes like this:
“Words are incredibly powerful. They can create or they can destroy. So, it’s important to choose them wisely.”
The way we think affects our behavior, beliefs, and yes, even the world we live in. If you constantly think that you’re going to have a hard time during labor and delivery, it’s really going to happen. Our thoughts create reality and it’s scary if you think about it. Thoughts often match what goes on in our lives. In Hypnobirthing, we focus on the positive by “detoxing” our words and thoughts. That’s why we change words that have a negative ring to them into more positive ones. Words such as “contractions” and “spasms” are replaced with “surges” and “waves”. It will feel like learning a whole new language, but it will be worth the pain-free and fear-free birth.
You Are Always In Control
Contrary to what the word “hypnosis” implicates, you’re certainly not “out of it” and have absolute control over your labor and delivery. Forget about that image of a tense woman being told to push. You are in control, and unlike that usual image of a woman during birthing, you will not be fighting the birthing sensations.
As mentioned, Hypnobirthing provides tools that will enable you to go into a state of deep relaxation, preparing your body for a gentle birth. It will feel great to be able to relax and be in control of your body.
Just imagine being able to retreat to that special place in your mind, to feel deeply relaxed and allow your body to follow the natural process, and still conscious of what’s happening around you at the same time. Hypnobirthing allows you to take the reins and simply breathe your baby out!
If you think you’re not familiar with fetus ejection reflex, think again. Do you have pets that recently gave birth? Maybe you have seen mammals give birth to their offspring like they seem to just expel from their mothers. Just like mammals, humans are capable of giving birth comfortably and easily. Our bodies are designed for babies to easily slide out. Through Hypnobirthing, you can condition yourself to be deeply relaxed and confident when the times comes for you to give birth to your precious one.
