My Introduction to Hypnosis

Hypnosis was always an interest of mine but became a profound element of my life when my second child was born within an hour of arriving to the hospital and with really very little actual pain.
Had I known then what I know now, I could have done it virtually pain free. I would have tweaked the cassette a little bit and been slightly less intimidated by the process. Heck, had I known then, I would have dropped my first one after a few hours of productive labor as well. True to form though, I was scared and tense the entire time (to say the least) and I felt every twinge and contraction as I battled the progress of the labor. My son was born 3 years before my daughter, with a drawn out, painful birthing experience that went on for 22 hours and ended in Caesarean section that took weeks of recovery.
I am not here to tell you that you can have your baby pain free, but I can tell you that you can limit the stress that you feel and approach the inevitable birthing process with at the very least the confidence to make it a tremendously positive memory.
With my clients, I find out about what their strengths and interests are and I use these to help write a script to use throughout the last trimester. By hearing your own voice as you lull yourself to sleep, your brain absorbs the information in a nonthreatening, productive way and begins to make a shift at the most primal level.
