When it comes to pregnancy and birth, there is so much conflicting and even scary information. It is easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure. I provide one-on-one guidance, education, and effective relaxation techniques that allow birthing women to feel informed, confident, and peaceful.
In 2016, a researcher named Hauser did a meta-analysis and looked at all the randomized trials on using hypnosis for a variety of purposes. They found that hypnosis was superior to usual care in terms of reducing emotional stress, making you have a quicker recovery, and decreasing your need for pain medication. They concluded that hypnotherapy is a safe and effective complementary medicine technique for use in medical procedures and that it even shows promise for helping people manage irritable bowel syndrome.
