HypnoBirthing® Frequently Asked Questions

Will I give birth under hypnosis?

HypnoBirthing Classes in DallasWhen you have your baby with HypnoBirthing®, you will not be in a trance or asleep. What you will experience is similar to the daydreaming, or focusing, that occurs when you are engrossed in a book or a movie or staring into a fire.

In this respect, you will experience a type of “situational hypnosis” in which your mind is pleasantly distracted, and everything else seems to run on autopilot. If you’ve ever driven home after a long day and don’t remember the drive, you have experienced situational hypnosis.

You will be awake throughout your entire birth, and will be aware of your body’s surges and your baby’s progress; but because you will have trained yourself to reach complete relaxation, you’ll be in control of those sensations and how much they impact your comfort. You will experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear that prevents the muscles of your body from functioning as nature intended. In this calm state, your body’s natural relaxant, endorphins, replaces the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.

Is HypnoBirthing® New? Is it safe?

HypnoBirthing Classes in DallasHypnoBirthing® is not a new concept at all. In fact, training the mind to remain calm and in control during childbirth has been around for centuries. It wasn’t until the 1920s that Dr. Grantly Dick-Read “reintroduced” the techniques and philosophy in his Ob-GYN practice in England.

HypnoBirthing® is being successfully and safely used around the world. It is teaching women and their birthing companions to trust birth, and release all fear and limiting thoughts. It doesn’t hinder the birthing process in any way; rather, it enhances the safety of the process by reducing your stress, pain, and anxiety.

How does HypnoBirthing® work?

HypnoBirthing Classes in DallasWomen in our culture hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth, too often associating it with excruciating pain, causing their bodies to become unable to perform what should be a normal physiological function. HypnoBirthing® is a unique method of relaxed, natural childbirth education enhanced by self‑hypnosis and guided imagery techniques that allow women to use their natural abilities to bring about safer, easier, and more comfortable birthing.

HypnoBirthing® techniques teach woman how to release all prior programming about birth, to free herself of limiting thoughts and emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and resistance muscles. When giving birth with HypnoBirthing®,you are not in a trance or asleep, but instead in a state of deep relaxation—awake, aware, and fully in control.
