Simply put, hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation. But it is not a state of unconsciousness. In fact, you’ve probably been hypnotized many times without realizing it. If you’ve ever been so deeply engrossed in a book that you weren’t aware someone was talking to you, then you’ve been under hypnosis.
Hypnosis allows you to shut off the active, conscious part of your brain and tune into your subconscious. The subconscious is the area of your brain that makes a lot of decisions that you don’t realize. As a result, hypnosis allows you to gain more control over your life since you are dealing directly with the subconscious mind. In a way, you are reprogramming your mind to act in a way that you find more beneficial.
Pauline helps you relax and enter your subconscious and also coaches your partner on taking her place in your practice sessions and on the birth day. However, all hypnosis is considered to be self-hypnosis. Even though you have Pauline or your partner guiding you into hypnosis, you are the one doing all the work and you are always in control.
Contrary to what most people have been led to believe, you cannot do anything in a hypnotic state that you have a serious moral or ethical objection to. You actually do have control over your actions and what you say while under hypnosis. There is also no reason why you cannot remember what you have said or done unless your mind has decided to "forget" about it. While your subconscious mind will always be aware of what happened, your conscious mind may not.
Hypnosis and Childbirth
How Is the Pain Eliminated?
HypnoBirthing teaches future parents that childbirth is nothing to be afraid of. Parents end up losing their fear and thoughts over the immense pain they have been led to believe comes with childbirth. In place of the negative thoughts are positive ones that evaluate childbirth as a wonderful and natural process that a woman’s body is able to do with ease and comfort.
You and your partner will attend classes together so that you can both learn the technique. Classes can be taken in a group or privately.
