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. Here is the idea, if you wake up tomorrow planning to run a marathon but have never trained for it; there is no amount of positive mindset that will ultimately propel you 26.2 miles.

Most women are not truly hypnotized, but after many weeks practicing Hypnobirthing they become extremely in tune with their baby and their body. With this training, comes the confidence and assurance that your body is designed to give birth.

One of the most important components of Hypnobirthing and having a positive birth is to surround yourself with positive birth stories and supportive women. Unfortunately, many movies and TV shows enacting birth show it in an elaborate, alarming and fear-provoking way.

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...
