Hypnosis takes a lot of repetition to get the full effects so I have no doubt that as Hypnobabies students get further into the course and work through the program they will experience an amazing reduction in anxiety and get more and more excited about birth. They might still have fears and anxiety and that’s OK. But by the end of the Hypnobabies course they will have given themselves so many tools to achieve the easier, more comfortable, low fear, very empowering birth experience they desire!
As for the issue of finding that fears and worries keep bubbling up while listening to the tracks, distracting your focus from the positive messages, Hypnobabies students should listen to the tracks without judgment and enjoy the relaxation. Also when your mind is racing with other thoughts, listen to the voice on the track and each word she is saying. You might have to bring your attention back to her exact words again and again and that’s ok, but over time it will get easier. You can’t think about fears and focus on her words at the same time.
Enjoy the program and keep on practicing!
