Yes, you heard it right. Medical scientists have derived a whole different birthing technique which has been proven to reduce the pain that the mother-to-be feels when the child is coming out from her womb. But now, it is all about to change. The technique we are bringing to you helps reduce the pain you feel and have a smooth delivery. The name of this awesome technique is Hypnobirthing which has been very popular in the US and UK.
What is Hypnobirthing?
It is a childbirth method that focuses on encouraging a calm and peaceful pregnancy and preparing parents for a gentle and natural birth. It works on the understanding that women can learn to release fear during childbirth and create endorphins instead. Hypnobirthing differs from other childbirth methods as it teaches a state of self-hypnosis and deep relaxation through abdominal breathing, usually resulting in shorter and more comfortable labours without the need for medical intervention.
Learning Hypnobirthing techniques
There are separate classes for learning the technique where both you and your husband are supposed to go and they teach you various things that include-
1. Techniques of deep relaxation
2. How to create your own natural relaxant
3. Natural ways to bring your body into labour without artificial chemical induction
4. How you can create a birthing environment that is calm, serene and joyful, rather than tense and stressful
5. Gentle birthing techniques that allow you to breathe your baby into the world without the violence of hard physical pushing
6. How to use your natural birthing instincts
These techniques have been proven to help the mother manage pain and be more stress-free in bringing the little one into the world.
Labour Pain-Free or Not?
Hypnobirthing mothers have reported a manageable labour and delivery, more so than those without, for those who have done both. The concept is that hypnobirthing alleviates the feeling of fear, (which constricts muscles and causes pain) and allows the mother to work with her own body, rather than feel it is working against her. Though there will still be pain during childbirth, this technique will help you in reducing it significantly by preparing you mentally for it.
