First time mothers hear a lot of different things from a lot of different sources about what is best for the health of their pregnancy. With the abundance of information as well the sudden rush of hormones, it’s very easy for anxiety to run rampant. Don’t let it happen to you! Pregnancy hypnosis can help you stay healthy, keep your growing baby healthy, and calm your mind so that you can reduce the stress on your body. Even mothers who are seasoned and on their second or third (or fourth or fifth etc.) pregnancy can benefit from including hypnosis in their birth plan.
Healthy Mothers are Happy Mothers
When you’re running around the house, picking up toys and cleaning up after your family, feeling like the work will never end, the stress gets to you. It feels like you can never do enough because there’s always something new popping up on your to do list. Hypnosis can turn these into positive activities. You can use focus and concentration hypnosis to keep your mind on one thing at a time, get organized, and focus on your happiness. At the end of the day, you may often find that happy area where you feel accomplished and think about the new baby growing inside of you. Hypnosis can help you make every moment of your day like one of those moments. That happiness carries over to every area of your life and, through that feeling, you can be healthier and your children can be healthier in turn.
Calming Sibling Rivalry
You may have other children to take care of in addition to your growing baby. They may not understand what’s happening or may feel that they are getting less attention as the pregnancy makes you tired and busier than ever. Talk to your hypnotherapist about techniques that you can use to spread a calm and positive atmosphere throughout your own home. As hypnosis helps you calm yourself during pregnancy, you can use the tools that you learn in your sessions to make your entire home a happy, healthy, and positive place so that any other children involved still feel as loved as they always did.
Your Birth Plan
Whatever your plan, you can include pregnancy hypnosis into your birth plan. Before the birth, your hypnotherapist will work with you to help ensure a happy and healthy pregnancy. She can give you techniques to use at home so that you are able to self-hypnotize even if you’re not in a session. As the birth draws near, your hypnotherapist can give you techniques that will ease your labor and help you stick to the birth plan that you create. Hypnobirthing can help you release endorphins as you are in labor, decreasing the need for pain killers in the hospital and helping you stay present throughout the entire experience. Your fears and concerns about pregnancy can be eased by hypnosis, no matter how many people try to give you advice.
