It is well worth the time to look into hypnosis for childbirth as an option, both for yourself and for your baby. It is important to remember that many drugs given to a woman in labor reach the baby in less than 5 minutes, in an adult dose, so using hypnosis techniques can help avoid them. The deep relaxation has even helped many a nervous dad to cope as they prepare for their child's birth! In addition, the skills you will learn for relaxation and hypnosis will benefit you for the rest of your life.
