I began learning about childbirth hypnosis when I was pregnant with my second baby. I had a difficult and long birth experience the first time around. It wasn't so much the discomfort of birth that I was worried about, but the length of my birthing time. Knowing that my first birth was long, I really focused on the element of time. I really wanted to decrease the length of my birth and avoid the extra interventions I had during my first birth. I LOVED the phrase in my Hypnobabies Tracks that suggested "Every 15 minutes feels like 5 minutes to me". I practiced my Hypnobabies Program faithfully every day.
The evening I went into my birthing time, I was laying on the couch and practicing my hypnosis and the suggestions about sensations of my birthing waves began to feel REALLY real. I could almost feel pressure building and releasing in my belly, and I loved how relaxed each pressure sensation made me feel. Eventually, I felt a "pop" and immediately knew my body was actually starting my birthing time. My waters had released. I went to the bathroom to clean up, and felt excited. 2 quick hours later, I met my son Shawn with relatively little discomfort and two involuntary pushes. It was such an amazing experience, that I decided to become a Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor to share this amazing gift to expecting families. Here is what my experience taught me about the value of hypnosis for birth:
