Pregnancy is an exciting time for most women, however, some women find it stressful and a time of worry.
Using hypnotherapy I can help you relax and enjoy your pregnancy and birth, a precious time. It has been found that
after 17 weeks the stress hormone cortisol can be found in the amniotic fluid at the same levels as in the mothers blood! So its never too early to start hypnotherapy so give me a call.
Hypnotherapy during pregnancy is growing in popularity since it’s a natural process and it has no negative side effects and it can be used safely in pregnancy when a women’s other options are limited. I can show you and teach you self hypnosis to help you keep calm during labour. If you’re scared, anxious and worried your body will respond accordingly, producing hormones such as adrenaline that will make you tense your muscles more. This means your uterus has to work harder to contract and relax.
With effective hypnosis, your breathing is more steady and even, which means more oxygen is reaching you and your baby. Increased oxygen stimulates the production of oxytocin (a hormone that controls contractions or surges as I call them) and endorphins (the feel good/good mood natural chemicals that runners talk about). The ultimate goal is for you to have contractions that are more effective and less painful.
