Hypnosis For Childbirth in Vancouver, BC
Setting expectations is crucial. Most expecting parents have a sense of dread about labour – they have heard horror stories about childbirth yet watched movies that show how easy it is to give birth (the mother is in pain for a second and the next thing you know the baby is resting peacefully in her arms while she looks relaxed and happy). So what is the truth? What can we do to promote a positive labour experience?
What Is HypnoMothering?
HypnoMothering is hypnosis for childbirth and allows expecting parents to experience the birth of their baby–a natural process–in a way that is appropriate for them, whether it is a home birth, hospital birth, medicated or unmedicated birth and anything in between. These parents receive tools and strategies to create rapid relaxation when needed as well as to gain a sense of empowerment and choice over the process itself.
HypnoMothering sets realistic expectations for childbirth and, although there is no guarantee of a pain-free labour, this is indeed something that can take place.
Within a number of hypnosis for childbirth classes, the expecting parents are provided with a framework and are equipped with strategies and tools that give them the space to initiate rapid relaxation, focus, reinvigoration and grounding on demand. With some practice, parents arrive at the birth of their child prepared and empowered, where both the birthing parent and the support person know their roles and responsibilities.
Tracy Barrett Adams is a clinical hypnotherapist, hypnosis trainer, and birth doula based in Seattle, Washington. Last year, Tracy invited me to learn HypnoMothering®, a framework for hypnosis for childbirth preparation based on Tracy’s experiences teaching and working with parents to prepare for birth. Her approach is well structured, yet flexible enough to meet the needs of a variety of personalities and various situations to provide support in labour and a gentle transition into parenthood.
Why HypnoMothering Is So Unique
#1 The Practitioners
Different people want different things, and so it is with childbirth – home birth might not be the best fit for everyone and, likewise, hospital birth is not what other parents envision for their childbirth.
Learning and practicing HypnoMothering’s framework, along with its tools and strategies, conditions the mind-body response. The value of this conditioning during labour is priceless.
#2 Rapid Relaxation
Rapid relaxation is needed between surges to regain energy and focus for effective labour.
#3 Deep Relaxation
#4 Expecting Parents Are Involved and Have a Sense Of Choice
#5 Different Birthing Positions
#6 Touch for Comfort
#7 HypnoMothering Encourages Parents to Choose What Works for Them
Why I Love Working with Expecting Parents Using Hypnosis for Childbirth
My Hypnotherapy Program, which is tailored to answer your particular needs as a client, comes in a package of 5 hypnosis sessions.
There is something magical about working with people who are excited about adding a human being to their lives.
Expecting parents bring this wonderful energy with them, and when given relevant strategies and tools to work with their mind and body as well as to create a meaningful connection with their baby through HypnoMothering, my preferred method of hypnosis for childbirth, they get a powerful head start for the baby’s life and for this precious time in their lives.
Working with people who will soon become parents (or are adding another child to their family) while easing their way to parenthood using hypnotic tools empowers them with strategies they can use long after they have their child.
As young (and experienced) parents, they can use rapid relaxation and will be able to translate other tools they used for labour for support in many other areas of their lives.
Supporting expecting parents with hypnosis for childbirth means empowering them through this wonderful time in their lives, being part of their process and later hearing their beautiful birthing stories.
