New hypnotherapy service offered to mums-to-be

New MOTHERS-TO-BE are being offered the chance to learn self-hypnosis techniques to help them through labour.

The natal hypnotherapy workshops run by South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in the UK focus on relaxation techniques to help women feel calm, in control and fully prepared for the birth of their child.

Those opting to take part will be taught about natural ways to reduce pain during childbirth, self-hypnosis skills to overcome any fears or anxieties and effective breathing and relaxation techniques.

It’s about time all hospital and anti natal clinics realised that hypnotherapy can be of significant benefit in childbirth, not just for pain control but for coping with anxiety and also for recovery.  I am delighted when I hear great news like this but wish that the medical profession would move a little faster in its acceptance and application of hypnosis in such an important area.

The British Hypnosis Research and Training Institute is based at Birkbeck College in the University of London and was founded at the University of Cambridge in 1979 as a research association. We were the first organisation to offer Ericksonian Hypnosis courses in Europe and our combined International ‘Ericksonian Hypnosis University Summer School’ and online distance learning training has evolved from the courses we have taught in more than 20 hospitals and universities during this time.
