What does self-hypnosis for hypnobirthing feel like?

During your Hypbirth course I will teach you to enter a trance-like state of deep relaxation safely, so you can access and communicate directly with the unconscious and give instructions or ‘suggestions’. You are deeply relaxed and calm, aware of everything happening around you. It is a pleasant and enjoyable state very similar to daydreaming or drifting off to sleep. Some people find they feel very heavy in hypnosis. Others feel light and floaty. Some people get a combination of these feelings oscillating between feeling heavy and light. Others feel no different at all. Whatever you feel is the right feeling for you!

Is it safe to go into self-hypnosis to help me birth?

Absolutely. It is a completely safe, comfortable and relaxed experience.

Will I be under the hypnotist’s “power”?

No. You are in charge. You cannot be made to do anything against your will and you cannot be taken into hypnosis if you do not want to. It is your experience and you are in control throughout.

What if I cannot be hypnotised?

You can. Everyone can, as long as they want to be. The amazing thing is you do not even have to try to relax. You just let it happen.

Will I be asleep during my hypnobirthing self-hypnosis sessions?

No. You are fully awake and alert, aware of everything that is happening throughout the session.

Is Hypnosis like ‘Positive Affirmations’?

An affirmation is anything you say or think and this affects your unconscious mind. Your thinking in fact, determines all things. Think negatively and you attract negative realities. Think positively and the benefits you desire in life will come true. Using hypnosis you are able to think more positively and the CD you get from the sessions is a series of positive affirmations making up a self-hypnosis programme. Thus when in hypnosis you are able to take on board all the affirmations by tapping into your ‘inner power’ to change your life for the better and to have a wonderfully natural childbirth.

How is Hypnosis involved in the mind-body connection?

Hypnosis is an extension of the expression “mind over matter”. The mind constantly affects the body, often creating anxieties of different forms, lack of confidence, fear and all sorts of other feelings. However, using the innate ‘inner power’ of the unconscious mind in hypnosis you are able to make the changes you desire and be more positive and in control in all situations. As you can see ‘positive affirmations’ are very closely linked to this mind-body connection.
