What medical professionals are saying

As you may have already read, hypnosis is a totally natural state of deep relaxation and concentration.
We pass through hypnosis on the way to sleep, so people recognize it as being comfortable and pleasant.
When in hypnosis we are fully aware, and in absolute control of our actions.
We are able to fully utilize the power of the subconscious mind.

The subconscious mind influences what we think, how we feel, and the choices we make.
It can actually control pain, amongst other things!
There is no magic to achieving success, and with instruction, anyone who chooses to can reach deep relaxation and redirected focus – the hypnotic state.

You are totally relaxed, aware and fully in control.
When having your baby with HypnoBirthing®, what you will experience is similar to daydreaming, or focusing that occurs when you are absorbed in a book or movie.
While you will be aware of contractions or waves you will have determined the extent to which you feel them.

When it is time for your baby to be born you will be fully awake and involved.
You will experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm and relaxation,
without the fear and tension that cause pain.
Your body’s natural anesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones that create pain.
