Hypnobirthing Myths

Hypnobirthing Myths – Busted!

The concept of Hypnobirthing has been around for years. Yet, majority of women don’t realize its significance in childbirth. In fact, there are several myths regarding the childbirth technique. Here are the most common Hypnobirthing myths:

Doctors and midwives don’t support Hypnobirthing

While some doctors and midwives are fully convinced of Hypnobirthing benefits, the technique has certainly caught the attention of many others across the world.

To put it simply, Hypnobirthing prepares women for childbirth. Different childbirth procedures come with different types of risks and benefits.

Hynobirthing makes mothers to be aware of those pros and cons so that they know what to expect during pregnancy and childbirth. Since they are better prepared for childbirth, they are more relaxed and in control. Not to mention, they are in a position to communicate confidently with their doctors.

Hynobirthing guarantees pain-free labor

Pain is a subjective term. During labor, some women may feel intense pain, while others not so much.

One fact is true; Hypnobirthing helps alleviate pain during labor. For many women, Hypnobirthing provides all the tools and techniques to have a completely pain-free birth. While other Hypnobirthing mothers have some pain at birth yet not enough to need pain medication.

One thing is certain in natural birthing; you are more likely to have a comfortable birth with Hypnobirthing than without.

Hypnobirthing doesn’t work if you have negative thoughts

Pregnancy can be a life-changing experience for most women. They may experience a host of negative emotions, such as fear and anxiety.

Hypnobirthing teaches women to let go of negative thoughts. Hiding these feelings or thoughts would aggravate the situation. The whole concept of Hypnobirthing is to acknowledge and release negative thoughts during pregnancy.

Hypnobirthing is only about childbirth

Contrary to popular belief, there’s more to it than preparing mothers for childbirth. The benefits of Hypnobirthing go beyond childbirth.

The technique teaches couples how to prepare themselves—physically, emotionally and spiritually—for the rest of the pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and parenting.

As a result, it helps couples to approach childbirth and parenting with knowledge and confidence and achieve desirable outcomes.
