A new independent study into the impact hypnobirthing has on pregnancy and birth has revealed some striking results. As well as highlighting a dramatic reduction in caesarean sections and medical intervention in general, women who practised hypnobirthing were much more likely to have a positive, confident birth with significantly lower levels of stress, anxiety, and mental health issues.
The research – carried out independently on behalf of KG Hypnobirthing
(KGH) – surveyed almost 700 women who either had children under two years old, or were currently pregnant. Most notable from the results are the differing levels of intrusive medical intervention, with mums who had experienced the KG Hypnobirthing programme almost 50% less likely to require a caesarean section. KGH mums also needed lower levels of pain relief.
