A comfortable, drug-free childbirth is possible with Hypnobirthing

 

For over 17 years, the Hypnobirthing Method, founded by Marie Mongan, M.Ed., M.Hy. (certified hypno-anestesiologist) has been helping mothers learn to totally relax their bodies, increase the production of endorphins (the feel good hormones) and release the fear that causes their bodies to tense. Fear and tension inhibit a woman’s ability to perform what is a normal physiological function-birth. Through relaxation, guided imagery, self-hypnosis and special breathing patterns, women learn to trust that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world in the same well designed manner that occurs when animal mothers give birth.

When birthing mothers no longer hold the fear that pain must accompany birthing, they are able to remain relaxed and eliminate the production of constricting hormones and dysfunctional labor patterns that lead to medical interventions such as Pitocin, Cesarean births , and exactly what women fear most- long painful births. With Hypnobirthing, a large majority of women report shorter, easier births, often free of discomfort.

With more than 2400 practitioners certified by the Hypnobirthing Institute, the concept is rapidly taking hold throughout the world. Today there are practitioners in more than 22 countries, including the US, Canada , the United Kingdom, Australia, France, Germany, South Africa and several Asian countries.

Locally, expectant mothers and their birthing companions can take Hypnobirthing classes in either group settings or privately through a series of five classes with Sara Rossi. At Functionize Health. Included in the fee is a copy of the book, Hypnobirhting a Celebration of Life by Marie Mongan, two self-hypnosis practice CDs and numerous informational handouts. The next group course begins September 8th and space is limited.

You are in control of your birth

You are in control of your birth

From the minute a woman finds out she’s pregnant, it is her responsibility to know how her every thought, choice and action, including the foods she eats, how she births, and how she will carry out a healthy pregnancy will impact her child. For as a parent, you are now not only accountable for your own life, but the life you have created and by extension, all the lives that life touches. Its a ripple effect!

I challenge you to be open to possibilities, see what is available to you and examine what you want and don’t want to create the outcome you desire for your birth. Every choice you make as a parent affects the outcome of your birthing experience and the birth of your baby. Your empowerment begins in making those choices that can change the direction of you baby’s life. Knowledge is power and without acknowledging that your choices matter, you won’t make better choices.

I will be writing a series of blogs to talk about BIRTH CHOICES. It is my hope I can be of service to you and assist you into making the best choices for your empowered and conscious birthing experience.
