The famous question that most women ask: “What if hypnosis could replace epidural?”
In any case, this is what those who have had the opportunity to practice it during childbirth boast.
To give birth to a child painlessly and in a natural way possible, isn’t that the pregnant woman’s dream? Indeed, the use of hypnosis during childbirth could satisfy their desire.

Try a new therapy to cope with the pain
Pain is not an affliction. Pain is essential, it is no more and no less part of the physiology of childbirth. Suffering is the annoying result of the “disempowerment” that society implies on mothers. Suffering evokes a certain quietism, it is the body that no longer knows what to do, it is imperity.
In the work room, hypnosis can be evoked as an anxiolytic. Pregnant mothers are no longer afraid of pain. They no longer feel emotions in a measured way when the epidural is inserted or during the caesarean section. The result is as follows: childbirth takes place more quietly.
By resorting to hypnosis childbirth preparation, women have more confidence in themselves and were better able to survive the unexpected births such as caesarean sections, epidurals and much more.
Moreover, future fathers can attend the birth room and, at the maternity ward, labour is more prompt and the period following childbirth, more peaceful.
However, hypnosis is not necessarily escape therapy. Moreover, she can also, through the application of several mental imagery exercises, grant women who so desire to remain psychically present at their delivery.
Well and truly, it will be a question of changing their conception of the situation and, therefore, of their emotions.
