Hypnotherapy and how it can help pregnancy

Hypnotherapy pregnancy can aid relaxation during pregnancy.

What is HypnotherapyHypnotherapy uses hypnosis – an altered state of consciousness – to help mothers-to-be comfortably relax and unwind. By working with the subconscious mind, it helps to break habits or stop unwanted physical responses. It also feels relaxing, and the best news is – the subject is in control throughout the whole session.

How can it help?

Hypnotherapy is used mainly in pregnancy to relieve morning sickness ease anxiety and relieve pain in childbirth. It’s also thought to help mums-to-be manage discomfort and tackle postnatal depression.

What happens?

I will start a meeting with my client with a friendly and informal chat – finding out what they want to achieve. Then I will ask them to either sit in a chair or lie on the couch and let themselves drift off. It might feel surprisingly familiar. If they have ever gone into a daydream during a boring meeting – staring out the window and drifting into a world of their own – they were in an altered state similar to hypnosis.

During the session, they’ll be aware of what’s going on, hearing the traffic outside, but they’ll feel wonderfully relaxed.

The one thing I must emphasise It’s nothing like stage hypnosis! My client is entirely in control and doesn’t have to take on my suggestions if they don’t want to. they can even choose to take themselves out of hypnosis if you want to.
