Diana T. Moore, Ph.D., will offer a free introductory workshop at 11 a.m. on May 7, presenting the positive benefits of hypnosis for childbirth and how it can help women achieve their goal of a natural childbirth experience.
“For many generations we have been told that having a baby involves many hours of painfully agonizing work, an experience to be faced with fear and trepidation, ”explains Moore, a certified yoga teacher, nationally certified hypnotherapist and Venice nutrition coach.“ Fear in labor can create tension, which creates pain, then more fear, and the cycle continues. Fear and anxiety can also increase adrenaline production in the body, causing the labor to become dysfunctional.”
Moore continues, “Hypnosis for childbirth teaches a woman how to enter into self-hypnosis instantly, and create her own natural anesthesia whenever and wherever she needs it. She has total control over her body and is an active participant in her birthing process. As labor progresses, she relaxes even more, trusting in her body’s natural ability to give birth with ease. Her mind is trained to give her exactly what she needs.”
Moore used hypnosis techniques for childbirth personally before and during the birth of her daughter. The experience of giving birth naturally, with less pain , within a few hours of being admitted to the hospital inspired her to bring this offering to other women wanting a more engaged, peaceful birth experience with fewer drugs and interventions.
