Expectant mothers using hypnosis to assist with labour

More expectant mothers are turning to hypnotherapy into order to control the anxiety and pain of the labour process.    
'Hypnobirthing' is being more widely accepted as a safer alternative to painkillers in assisting with childbirth.The process works by placing pregnant women under hypnosis and training their mind and body to relax during labour which can greatly reduce any pain felt during the process.A midwife who is trained in the technique, told local newspaper The Colchester Daily Gazette that the growing acceptance of the treatment could change the experience of labour forever.She said: "Hypnobirthing is going to make a remarkable difference to women and their experience of labour, whatever type of birth they have."If you're going to run a marathon, you prepare for it mentally and physically and hypnobirthing is a way to help couples prepare mentally and physically for labour and childbirth."During a typical hypnobirthing session, patients also learn breathing and relaxation techniques which also assist the labour process.Celebrity doctor Christian Jessen explained to The London Evening Standard that most of the pain experienced during labour is caused by fear and anxiety tensing up muscles in the body and that hypnosis is a useful technique to avoid this happening.
