I use the Blissborn method which was created
by Certified Hypnotherapists and Childbirth Specialists, Shelley Black
and Laura Wood. After using hypnosis for childbirth with Laura’s 3rd birth
with amazing success; they created a wonderful teaching method for a safe,
comfortable birth. Blissborn goes above and beyond any other hypnosis
for childbirth method. The Mother-To-Be learns how to use hypnosis to relieve
the pain of childbirth in five private, individualized sessions, taking
home CDs each week so she and her birthing partner can practice the techniques
By the end of the five sessions the Mother-To-Be
is well equipped to use several hypnosis techniques to achieve a relatively
pain-free, peaceful birth. Because the mother is deeply relaxed, babies
are generally born more quickly. During hypnosis the mother’s body can
do its work naturally without tension or resistance; often eliminating
several hours of labor time. Babies born with the Blissborn method are
under less stress and have higher apgar scores. Families are able to bond
more readily, allowing for a more peaceful, joyful, and satisfying beginning
to family life.
If there is a true need for medical intervention,
the skills learned with the Blissborn method help the new mother respond
well to chemical or surgical intervention.
Keep in mind, the private sessions include
the birthing partner as well as the Mother-To-Be, so he or she can learn
to be an effective support person during labor using hypnosis. I
suggest you schedule your sessions for the 28th to 32nd week of pregnancy
so you have plenty of time to practice the techniques.
|Blissborn includes 6 Hypnosis
for Childbirth CDs and a wonderful, informative workbook containing everything
you need to know for a safe, comfortable, rewarding birth experience.

|“Hypnosis offers much,
much greater pain control than Lamaze. During active labor, many
women using hypnosis rate their discomfort at about a level 2 on a 0 to
10 scale with 0 being no pain and 10 being the highest level of pain. Hypnosis
also significantly reduces suffering, the emotional component of pain.

“Children born to hypnotized
mothers scored higher on Apgar tests (a measure of health) and the mothers
were less prone to post partum depression…those who have previously given
birth without hypnosis tell doctors that it makes labor a more pleasant

seeking hypnotherapy for medical conditions it is imperative that you see
your medical practitioner first for a proper diagnosis. The hypnotherapy
