Self-Hypnosis for Pain Management, with Julietta Appleton

Self-Hypnosis for Pain Management, with Julietta Appleton

Today’s show is about self-hypnosis for labor pain management. Before you roll your eyes, know that this is not about someone swinging a pocket watch in front of you, but rather a tool that can diminish pain, lessen anxiety, make you feel more in control, and even shorten labor. How does it work? Julietta Appleton tells us more.

What we talked about:

  • Busting myths: no one hypnotizes you. Why all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.
  • Not just for birth: how hypnosis works (even with pain during hair waxing!)
  • The evidence behind hypnosis for pain reduction
  • Benefits of practicing hypnosis during pregnancy
  • Apart from pain management: other benefits of hypnosis during labor
  • What should a mom be on the lookout when choosing a system, program or hypnotherapist?
