Since that time I have supported a number of women who have attended Jenn's 6 week Hypnobabies course. It's been very rewarding to see the benefits of using hypnosis during labor and birth for these women. As the preparation involves daily practice in relaxation it certainly gives women tremendous support for the strong work of birthing. The language is very positive and the course includes everything one needs in order to make informed decisions as well as create a birth preferences list.
My role as a doula includes all that I would normally do for my clients, as well as then adding in the elements of Hypnobabies. This means learning what verbal cues and scripts are most effective along with gaining an awareness of the woman's specific details related to Hypnobabies techniques. My experiences with using Hypnobabies has been very favorable. I have seen it make a difference in terms of how women experience labor, how they move into their labor and how they are during the entire process. I've seen that the more women practice prior to their birthing time, the more it benefits them. As it becomes second nature, it's much easier to access deep levels of relaxation. This can be put into effect throughout the birthing time. I have seen labor be very short and women being beautifully with it.
I would encourage anyone who is considering this as a childbirth preparation course to go for it! The added bonus one will experience by using the methods taught by Hypnobabies will truly enhance your experience.
