Hypnosis is a state when your conscious and rational mind relaxes allowing your subconscious to take over. Hypnosis often involves music, soothing images and guided visualisation. As the rational side of your brain has become more relaxed, you are more responsive to affirmations and positive suggestions.
Hypnotherapy and hypnobirthing use a state of deep relaxation to help you manage with the anxiety and fear that can often surround pregnancy and birth. Hypnotherapy can help to regulate your heart rate, hormone production, the digestive system, as well as emotional wellbeing.
At Pregma, we believe in achieving the best possible pregnancy and birth for you possible. We have a fantastic team of hypnotherapists who are ready to help and expertly guide you through your pregnancy.
