HypnoBirthing Fertility, offered only through the HypnoBirthing Institute, is an amazing program designed to help you achieve your dream of conceiving and birthing a child, whether you are choosing medically assisted conception or alternative methods. You and your partner will be guided in your journey as you discover how changing your beliefs and thoughts will change your body and your ability to conceive, identifying and healing the barriers that exist within.

 

Fertility and conception is a mind-body process that is unique to every individual. There are critical factors which can disturb the delicate balance of a woman's body such as attitude, nutrition, environment, physical wellbeing and relationships. An imbalance in any or several of these areas can disrupt the natural balance.  It is estimated that 10 - 15% of couples of childbearing age experience infertility. Many of these families will turn to Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Studies have shown that including hypnotherapy in their fertility treatment can double their success rate. The Journal of the American Medical Women’s Association reported in 1999 that 42% of women were able to conceive within six months of being taught mind/body relaxation techniques, and decrease their levels of stress, anxiety and depression.

You will learn...

 

That in preparation for birthing, sometime between the 32nd and 37th weeks of pregnancy (or sometimes later) your baby turns from it’s upright position into what is called a vertex position (head down) in preparation for birthing. Most of the time this happens without you realizing it, especially if it occurs while you are sleeping.  However, sometimes this turn can be delayed.  

 

If you are experiencing conscious or unconscious fears or tension, or if there are circumstances that are upsetting you, your uterus may become taut and restrict your baby from turning.  Your baby’s buttocks remain at the neck of your uterus in what is called the ‘breech presentation’.  Sometimes the baby completes only a partial rotation, leaving a shoulder, an arm or one or both feet positioned in the lower part of the cervix.

 

Generally if your baby is in breech position you are informed that you will have to have a cesarean birth.  Before resorting to this option or another, consider using the help of this non-invasive gentle, therapeutic Hypnosis technique to turn your baby.

Who are the Breech Turn Hypnotherapy sessions for...

 

  • Pregnant women who are experciencing difficulties with their baby as he/she is in a breech position. 

  • Women that would prefer a "natural" birth method without the need for a C-Section. 

Course Highlights

 

  • This is a special breech turn session which has proven to be very effective in helping the breech-presented baby to spontaneously turn on its own.

  • Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madronna carried out a study of 200 women, a 100 women of which were given hypnotherapy, the remaining 100 were not although some did receive ECV (external cephalic version), a procedure whereby the baby’s head is manually manipulated from outside the abdomen.  Of the 100 women that received hypnotherapy 81 of the breech babies turned spontaneously.  In the comparison group only 26 babies turned spontaneously. 

In this session you will learn :

 

  • That a breech baby is NOT an automatic call for a c-section

  • To understand optimal positioning for baby

  • To Release fears and limiting thoughts

  • Tips for “tuning-in” to your baby to assist a turn

  • How visualization and talking to your baby can help
