Mcm hypnosis.. menggunakan kuasa minda bawah sedar utk mengawal rasa sakit bersalin dan memudahkan proses bersalin.. bezanya kita buat dlm keadaan kita sedar. Melalui teknik ni, membuatkan kita percaya bahawa kelahiran baby itu adalah normal. Kita diajar melatih diri berdepan dgn kesakitan dgn cara paling relax dan bertindakbalas dgn gesaan semulajadi tubuh badan.

Frust sedikit sbb tahu pasal teknik ni di hujung2 waktu.. sbb kita perlu attend kelas yg mengajar teknik hypnobirthing ni dgn betul start from 25weeks lagi.. huhuhu.. Ni dah masuk 38weeks.. achaner tuh.. hmm..

Tp x per.. sekurang2nya belum terlambat utk ambik tahu.. dan gunakan tips2 yg ada sehabis mungkin.. lgpun kita mmg berkuasa utk mengawal minda & badan kita.. terpulang pada diri masing2 kan.. So jom.. baca sedikit sebanyak info tentang hypnobirthing ni.

I’ve heard hypnobirthing can help to make labour easier and less painful. Is this true?

Joanne Turner answers:

You may find hypnobirthing helpful. Of course, every mum's labour and birth is different. Hypnobirthing techniques aim to teach you ways to stay in control and calm during labour and birth, whatever happens.

The ideal time to start classes is between 25 weeks and 29 weeks of pregnancy. This will allow you ample time to practise. If you're already past this stage, don't be put off. You may still benefit from classes in your last weeks of pregnancy.

Hypnobirthing embraces a different attitude to the way we think and talk about labour and delivery. Your hypnobirthing teacher may talk about:
  • tightenings or surges, rather than painful contractions;
  • practice labour, rather than false labour;
  • birth breathing, rather than pushing contractions.
The idea is that the language we use can make us feel more positive about our ability to labour and birth.

At hypnobirthing classes, you'll learn about:
  • Deep relaxation and self-hypnosis. These methods can help you to stay alert, but at the same time shut out the world and focus on your body.
Hypnobirthing techniques can help you cope with labour and reduce your need for other forms of pain relief. If you're in a lot of pain, are worried or feel scared during labour, your body is likely to go into fight-or-flight mode. Stress hormones, the main one being adrenaline, will flood your body.

Adrenaline reduces the blood flow to your uterus (womb) and digestive system. Instead, your blood flows more readily to the large muscles in your limbs so that you're ready to fight or run away.

As a result, the muscles of your uterus will work less well, because they are deprived of blood and oxygen. This can make labour harder and longer. Your baby will be getting less oxygen too.

Plus, just when you most need it, the hormone that eases labour, oxytocin, is less likely to be released. Stress hormones stop your body producing oxytocin. You'll also produce fewer of the natural hormones (endorphins) which numb pain and help you feel good.

Controlling your feelings through self-hypnosis can help you to prevent these stress responses from kicking in. Hypnobirthing is thought to:
  • Help you keep higher levels of oxygen in your body because of the deep breathing techniques.
  • Increase your chance of having a straightforward vaginal birth.
If you decide to attend hypnobirthing classes, it's a good idea to bring your birth partner with you. Birth partners can sometimes feel outside the experience of labour and birth. They may be there in the room with you as you labour, but find it hard to understand what you're going through.

In hypnobirthing classes, your birth partner will learn alongside you. You will both learn breathing, relaxation and visualisation techniques. Your teacher will give your birth partner scripts to read to you at home so you can carry on practising. The idea is you become so used to the techniques, it's easy for you to bring them to mind when you need them.

Once labour starts, keeping focused can help you and your partner stay as close as you can to your birth plan. You'll need to think calmly if labour doesn't go as expected, and you need medical help to give birth.

You may find hypnobirthing techniques useful wherever you have your baby, at a birth centre, at home or in hospital. Hypnobirthing classes are run privately, so you'll have to pay for them.

Benefits from Hypnobirthing

  • Teaches deep levels of relaxation to eliminate the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome before, during and after birthing.
  • Greatly reduces and often eliminates the need for chemical painkillers or drugs.
  • Shortens the first phase of labor.
  • Eliminates fatigue during labor, leaving mother alert, fresh, awake, and with energy for actual birthing.
  • Eliminates risk or hyperventilation from “shallow” breathing methods, and helps keep oxygen supplied to baby during birthing.
  • Reduces the need for an episiotomy.
  • Teaches breathing techniques that allow a woman to gently breathe her baby into the world without the violence of hard, physical pushing.
  • Empowers parents with techniques to achieve a gentle, calm birth for themselves and their baby.
  • Embraces the concept of pre-birth parenting.
  • Gives the birthing companion an integral role in the birthing.
  • Promotes special bonding of mother, baby, and birthing companion.
  • Fosters more rapid postnatal recovery.
  • Returns birthing to the beautiful, peaceful experience nature intended.
