5 Steps to Use Hypnobirthing for Childbirth
1. Read all about it.
There are a number of books on hypnosis and hypnobirthing as well as websites such as Hypno-Beginning and Hypnobabies.
2. Speak to your doctor or midwife.
Make sure that the person who will be delivering your baby does not have any major objections to hypnobirthing that could sabotage your efforts. If you feel strongly about hypnobirthing, you might want to make a change if you and your doctor or midwife do not agree on this topic.
3. Find a hypnobirthing teacher.
The site Hypnobirthing features a listing of teachers by state. You can also ask your doctor or midwife for recommendations.
4. Enroll in a hypnobirthing class.
On average, the classes meet about five times for about 15 hours total.
5. Do your homework.
Like any technique, you will get better at hypnosis if you practice. Take time to do that before the big day.
You may not be able to use hypnosis if there are complications during your delivery. However, the techniques that you learn can be used to relax and relieve stress throughout your life.
