Hypnosis for Birth by Cesarean
Cesareans are one of the most common surgeries that women undergo.
Part of the hypnosis script:
“It’s perfectly fine to place your attention elsewhere when they’re prepping your body, knowing that you’ll be present at the beautiful moment of birth . . . You have the ability to just drift off to a beautiful serene place if you like . . . imagining the moment when you’ll see your baby . . . Or you can stay present but will feel nothing but excitement and happiness to be meeting your baby and seeing their face for the first time.
Your body and your mind will stay relaxed and you’ll feel happy that you’re about to meet your baby. . . . Your heart rate will stay steady, beating steadily and calmly for both you and your baby . . . All the sounds of the operating room will drift into the background . . . If you’re spoken to directly you’ll be able to easily answer. . . Otherwise conversation will drift into a peaceful reassuring sound . . .The birth will go perfectly and your body will naturally control any bleeding and keep it to a minimum, with your heart rate keeping steady and calm for you and your baby. . . And this will help you recover quickly completely and comfortably.”
There are a couple of concerns when a woman is about to undergo a cesarean. One is her physical stability during the surgery. Two is the healing after the surgery. And three is her ability to care for her baby during that time.
The rates in the U.S. are highly dependent on region but according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 31 % of women in the U.S. had a cesarean delivery (according to the latest data).
That’s a lot of women having surgery. Hypnosis has been used to promote less bleeding during surgery and faster healing after surgery for decades.
It should be a standard part of prep for cesarean births. Who else needs faster healing more than a mama trying to take care of a newborn? The faster she can be up and about and the less pain she can feel, the better.
If a mom feels better, she can function better. Hypnosis can be particularly important because the body heals even more during sleep. What does a mama lack during those first weeks of mamahood . . . . Sleep!!! Hypnosis can help make up the difference and encourage faster healing during the sleep she does get.
Faster Healing with Hypnosis
Consider this study out of Harvard of hypnosis with women who had breast surgery. The hypnosis group healed significantly faster than the non-hypnosis group. Here’s another study that found the same thing. Wound healing was significantly faster at the p <.001 level. For those of you who are not statisticians, that means hypnosis blew it out of the water.
Reduce fear, reduce complications, and quicken healing time with a Hypnosis for Cesarean Birth.
For a mama taking care of a baby, faster healing with hypnosis means
- Less complications during surgery
- Faster mobility after surgery
- Less pain after surgery
- Less postpartum Anxiety
- Less postpartum Depression
- Better bonding with your baby
Yours in health,
