NoVA Hypnosis and Wellness

Why choose HypnoBirthing®?

1) HypnoBirthing® means fewer C-sections.

Don’t kid yourself.  A C-section is major abdominal surgery like having your gall-bladder removed or your appendix out.

Doctors may talk like it’s “no biggie” but that’s because there are big incentives for them to do so.

HypnoBirthing® classes teach you how to feel and look AMAZING while pregnant and how to have an easy, comfortable labor experience without the use of drugs.

“But why without drugs?” you ask.

Thanks for asking!  That brings me to my second point:

2) Epidurals nearly double your chances of having a C-section.

Epidurals  are great for relieving pain but, like all drugs, they can have serious side effects.

Epidurals not only numb labor pains; they also completely strip you of all sensations “down there.”  Pushing the baby out becomes exponentially harder when you can’t feel anything below your waistline.  For that reason and others, epidurals significantly increase your chance of ending up with a C-section.

Not a believer when I say that epidurals increase your chances for a C-section?

Believe the doctors then.

One study outright states, “[t]he results of this meta-analysis strongly support an increase in cesarean delivery associated with epidural analgesia.”  (Click here for the full article.)

But, wait.  There’s more…

The National Institutes of Health say, “Epidural analgesia (EA) is clearly the most effective form of pain relief during labour. But various unwanted side effects are associated with its use, including longer labour; increased incidence of maternal fever… and increased rates of operative vaginal delivery and perineal trauma, such as more third- and fourth-degree tears.”  (Click here for the full article.)


Look, here’s the bottom line:

From 2005 to 2010, only 17% of HypnoBirthing® moms had a C-Section, compared to the national rate of 32%.

Only 23% of HypnoBirthing® moms felt they needed an epidural, compared to the national rate of 71%.
