Re: Anyone considering Hypno Birthing Method?
it's a method that teaches you how to truly relax through meditation. There are 3 muscles in the uterus each having a different function to bring the baby down through the birth canal. When you are afraid, fearful, stressed , not calm etc... the fight or flight response kicks in which in turn restricts blood supply to the uterus, tightens muscles and prevents the uterun muscles from functioning properly during labor, in turn causing a lot of pain and prolonged labor. The method is to completely relax your body and mind through the "surges" (contractions). With practice women are able to go in and out of the meditation during labor and have very comfortable births--peaceful and healthy for baby. It's truly a poweful thing--Mind over Matter. I'm sure it will be a lot of work to master but I'm very excited to learn how to do this. The mind is a powerful thing!
