An article in The Independent (30th Jan 2007) reports:

Research at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide, where hypnosis is used for women in labour, shows it is highly effective. Women who had the therapy, which was given after 37 weeks gestation, used fewer epidurals – 36 per cent compared with 53 per cent in other women. A second study showed that women taught self-hypnosis reduced their need for analgesia by half, epidurals by 70 per cent, and were more than twice as likely to be satisfied with their pain management in labor compared with other women.

Bye for now,

Ps – Why not start learning self hypnosis for childbirth today…

  1. Dear Heidi,

    it would be nice if you could make an mp3 for women with Morning Sickness. I saw this in an other self-hypnosis “shop” and thought it would be worth a try in my next pregnancy as I really suffered with feeling sick all day, not eating enough and being tired and just feeling ill.
