Birthing: Back to Basics with Hypnobirthing

Written by Dr. Lisa Goodman, DC

Every day more women are taking control of their births. This goes beyond just having a skilled provider, a birth plan and a solid support system. If a woman plans on having a successful, enjoyable and natural birth, there is one other thing she must do: Train. The phrase “practice makes perfect” is true.

It is also unfortunate that many women believe that the birth process should be left in the hands of the doctor. While doctors and midwives are extremely important, they a...
