In the hospital or healthcare facility, hypnobirthing follows most of the medical procedures involved in vaginal birth. The difference, perhaps, is you may need less intervention for pain and augmentation of labor.
The proponents of the Mongan Method say that there are other potential benefits to this method than just the possibility of painless childbirth.
One report concluded that many women who enrolled in the program felt more confident and in control. Other papers mentioned that with hypnobirthing, mommies needed less intervention in augmentation of labor using oxytocin.
Still, results vary from one woman to another. Just because it worked for one of your acquaintances doesn’t mean it will work for you as well. Should you sign up for hypnobirthing, you need to accept the possibility that a painless childbirth experience is not 100% guaranteed.
If you’re interested in hypnobirthing, don’t forget to discuss it with your doctors first, especially if you have a high-risk pregnancy.
