Lockdown Pregnancies Lead to Hypnobirths

LONDON - May 20, 2020 - PRLog -- Recent figures show a surge in interest for hypnobirthing as parents-to-be look at alternative therapies to tackle stress and anxiety during lockdown. The Hypnotherapy Directory reports a 169% increase in searches for hypnobirthing practitioners.

Clincial hypnotherapist Professor Ursula James has seen an increase in enquiries from parents-to-be to help them get through the current situation. Uncertainty about hospital appointments, antenatal classes and birthing plans are causing additional stress and anxiety.

"These days mothers-to-be are more aware how much stress affects them and the baby. And the lockdown situation is creating tremendous anxiety for them," she says. "With social distancing measures in place in hospitals, there is uncertainty about their partner being allowed to accompany them during the birth, and even how safe a hospital birth will be."

Research has shown that using hypnosis during pregnancy and the birth itself can have huge benefits for mother and baby, both mentally and physically, including less pain during labour and a reduced recovery time.

"Clients are noticing a change in the way they handle the current situation and I teach them self-hypnosis techniques for relaxation," says Ursula. "They are feeling much more confident that despite what is happening in the world, their pregnancy will be a happy one and the birth will go as planned."

Online hypnotherapy sessions can be booked via https://www.ursulajames.com and Professor James has a Childbirth hypnosis MP3 which can be downloaded from the Ursula James Store: https://mobi.ursulajames.com/shop/uj_c_mp3.html
