Clinical Hypnosis practiced by a trustworthy and professionally qualified therapist, can help you in preparation for your pregnancy, during pregnancy, with the birth, and your recovery.
There is plenty of research that shows hypnosis can help you with natural, effective, pain relief for the birth of your baby.
It can assist with any stress, fears and anxieties, morning sickness, and pregnancy issues, and even help you with milk flow and recovery after you've had baby.
Hypnosis is a state of mind when your conscious (rational) mind takes a backseat and your subconscious (feelings, memories, emotions) mind drives the car for a while. Generally, hypnosis involves music, soothing images, and guided visualisation. Once the analytical part of your mind relaxes, you become more receptive to positive suggestions and affirmations.
Hypnosis has the ability to “bypass” the critical faculty by inputting new desired information directly into unconscious mind. This allows our unconscious mind to accept the new input as fact without interference from the filters that our conscious mind operates. With hypnosis you are always in control and cannot be forced to do anything that is not in line with your values.
The hypnotic state enables you to access the ability of the subconscious/unconscious mind to resolve deeply rooted issues.
Natal Hypnotherapy uses deep relaxation and the power of suggestion to tap into the part of your mind that's responsible for bodily functions (your heart rate, hormone production, and digestive system, as well as your emotions) and help you cope with the fear and anxiety that's often part of the pregnancy package. Many women use hypnosis to prepare for pregnancy, ease the 9month journey, and to ease the pain of childbirth.
I specialise in preparation and the journey, with marked changes during the pregnancy and specifically, HG - Hyperemesis Gravidarum.
Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) in pregnancy is a serious condition that is often resistant to conservative treatments. Medical Hypnosis is a well-documented alternative treatment in other countries, sadly not so prevalent here in Australia.
Medical Hypnosis (Clinical Hypnotherapy) can also be used to treat common morning sickness that is experienced by up to 80 percent of pregnant women. Its use can allow a more comfortable pregnancy and healthier fetal development, and could prevent cases that might otherwise proceed to full-blown HG. In preparation for your pregnancy, it is ideal to begin treatment before conception, however not necessary.
What you can expect from your sessions:
De-stress and calm yourself
Improve sleep and quality of rest
Help eliminate any fears and anxiety
Gives you control, as and when you need it
Decrease the pain level of contractions
The length of treatments depends on the problem or symptom and your individual circumstances. With some people, issues can be overcome within 3-4 sessions; some may require 5 or more.
In the course of the therapy, you will be provided with a highly effective Hypnosleep recording to listen to atleast once each night and relaxation/mindfulness strategies and tools to individualised to suit your requirements.
The first session usually lasts one to one and half hours with subsequent sessions about the hour.
I stress, medical hypnosis should be considered as an adjunctive treatment option for those women with pregnancy and HG.
I had my first Hypnotherapy session today. We are covering HG, stress, anxiety/depression. I walked in feeling horrible (nausea, anxiety), stressed, tired) and walked out feeling like a completely different person. I slept 9.5 hours that night! My nausea has nearly completely disappeared and I haven’t been dizzy since. I cannot wait for next week’s session. I already feel much more positive and in control of my body.
This was her 8th time with IVF...it just had to work...and it did:
"It took me 7 months to build up the strength to go and see Lynne. Wow why didn't I see her sooner! Lynne had a plan to get me prepared for IVF again and for it to stick. Lynne is so professional and focused on what she needed to do for my body and mind. I have learnt on how to be calm. And how to meditate is the key for me. I recommended Lynne to so many people.
And yes... I'm 13weeks today! I never had a positive result before. So hypnotherapy with Lynne really does work. Thank you so much Lynne, you are my Angel!"
