Childbirth hypnosis has recently been receiving some attention and Silver Bee Photography gives their readers insight into what its is all about. No longer just a circus act, hypnosis has been used in therapy and medicine as an alternative to anesthesia. Benefits of childbirth hypnosis include “less anxiety and fear during childbirth, greater control of the cervix opening, the ability to detach from discomfort, and greater responsiveness to supportive suggestions and encouragement,” says Silver Bee Photography. However despite these benefits, hypnosis is still commonly viewed as a type of mind-control, or even satanic. As Silver Bee Photography explains, no one is forced into hypnotherapy. “You cannot be made to divulge information or do anything against your will while in hypnosis. A person chooses to enter into a hypnotic state, stay in and come out at will.” These misconceptions can often deter women from investigating the benefits of childbirth hypnosis.
