"maternal stress and anxiety can alter the development of the baby's brain"
As a mum of two, now grown up, children I still remember the anxiety of being pregnant and my worries about the birth. It is natural to feel concerned but it is also now recognised that feeling stressed and anxious can have a significant impact on the mother's physical health and the experience of childbirth.
As hypnotherapy equips you, and if you wish, your partner with techniques for relaxing and keeping calm and is completely non-invasive it is something which can be used at all stages of pregnancy, including pre pregnancy, to help you remain calm and in control.
Not only does the reduction of stress during pregnancy help the mother but it also helps the baby. Research by the Imperial College, London has shown that "maternal stress and anxiety can alter the development of the baby's brain."
In addition to reducing stress there is evidence of the pain relieving effects of hypnosis as reported in this article in the Guardian Newspaper.
