Experience natural painless delivery!

child gives birth to a mother

Childbirth is meant to be a beautiful experience of joy and celebration for expecting mothers and their families.  However, in our minds, the process of normal delivery is associated with extreme pain, discomfort and even fear of death. We all have heard dreadful stories about how much pain a woman has to go through, for a normal delivery. Due to these fears, it is observed that many people opt for delivery through planned caesarean, these days. Caesarean doesn’t cause as much pain and is seen as more convenient option.

In a recent article, Mint newspaper portrayed alarming facts on caesarean cases undertaken in India[1].

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of caesarean cases in a country should not exceed 10 to 15%. Experts suggest that higher percentage of caesarean cases above these thresholds may be due to family members opting for painless controlled birth or advanced healthcare environment that persuades one to opt for caesarean delivery.

A study conducted in Scotland reveals that babies born through planned caesarean attract more health related problems than the ones born through emergency caesarean. Further, studies have also revealed that babies born by caesarean delivery are more prone to obesity, type-1 diabetes and allergies. Also, we understand from mothers that after caesarean delivery they tend to gain weight and are sometimes unable to carry out day to day activities for some months.

Psychologically, mothers who undergo caesarean delivery also miss out on enjoying the beautiful experience of delivering their baby. During a normal delivery a woman’s body produces hormone oxytocin, which is responsible for bonding with the child.

Even today all viviparous animals deliver babies naturally. However, we being far superior amongst the remaining viviparous animals are more inclined to choose planned delivery through caesarean. The same mint article that we mentioned above, shows that the % of caesarean deliveries goes on increasing from 1.5% in lowest wealth class to 25% in highest wealth class. One has to understand that our inclination towards caesarean delivery predominantly arises due to our fear of not having a painless normal delivery that continuously haunts our brain.

Hypnosis provides one solution to this problem and helps expecting mothers to overcome their fear of pain during normal delivery, reducing the pain to a great extent while retaining the joyous feeling. It also helps to go back in time and understand where these fears are coming from, and free our mind of these limiting beliefs under hypnosis. Dr. Balkrishna Korgaonkar, who practices hypnotherapy has helped expectant mothers to have a smooth painless experience of normal delivery, during hypnosis sessions. These sessions may last for 2 to 3 as per requirement, subsequently one may have to listen to an audio recording on regular basis. Best time to undergo these sessions is in 7th month of pregnancy so that you have enough time for listening to the audio. The more time you get, the better.

Let us see what few such clients say about their experience:

“When I was pregnant, I was very worried about the pain that I would have to endure as I had taken the decision of going for normal delivery. Reason being that it was my first time, and I had never experienced labour pain before. I was very tensed about the complete situation.

Then through one reference I met Dr. Balkrishna, he gave me some insights about how that experience could be easily managed through hypnotherapy. It made sense and thus I decided to undergo hypnotherapy sessions with him.

After these sessions I can definitely say that my fear of the entire process was reduced a lot! I was in labour pain for around 15 hours. But I tried implementing the tips & tricks given by Dr. Balkrishna. And I do think that it made my delivery and labour pain very much bearable. One of the things that helped me was that I was able to remain pretty clam at the time of delivery despite the pain, it certainly helped in a safe and normal delivery.

I was very happy after seeing my sweet little angel. Many thanks to Dr. Balkrishna Korgaonkar for helping me to enjoy this “experience of a lifetime” and sharing tips that made it much easier than what I was fearing. I would surely recommend these sessions to expecting women – especially who are planning a natural delivery. I wish him all the best.”

“After a waiting of three years, it was definitely a precious pregnancy for me. At the initial stage I was happy but as the second trimester completed, I became nervous n anxious about the exact birth process.

One of the friends of mine suggested me hypnotherapy for the better birth experience. So I met Balkrishna for that and attended two sessions in which I experienced positive energy and realised healing power within me. He gave me the positive visualisation of the process of child birth as a natural, joyous and energying one, which is the part of divine creativity. Those sessions made my mind and body relaxed.

I got the session as a recording which he asked me to listen every night. It helped me a lot to face the whole process with great enthusiasm. That recording empowered me and awakened my inner strength. It was so strong that I was eagerly waiting my due date.

As my due date passed, Dr announced me as post dated and advised for Ceasarian section. But I had prepared for natural birth and I was very firm. On that moment I took second opinion and admitted to an other hospital where I had to be induced due to not having any sign of contractions. As the contractions started, with every contraction I could face the process with positive energy. I was so calm and relax. The whole process I know wouldn’t be pain free but my inner strength made it possible to manage the pain and made it easily bearable for me.

I had really the best birth experience. Not only that, but I got a positive view towards life also from those sessions. I am really thankful to Balkrishna for helping me to have a positive birth experience.”

Clinical Hypnotherapy – Dispelling The Myths

ImageThe entire concept of ‘hypnosis’ is frightening for many people. Hypnosis is commonly misrepresented and misunderstood. When I inform people that I am a clinical hypnotherapist by profession, I am often greeted by stares and awkward questions like, “You won’t make me bark like a dog, right?” or “If I look into your eyes, will you be able to make me do anything you want?” The agonizing part about these questions is that all of it is not meant in zest – I can almost see the tiny flicker of fear in their eyes as they look at me rather warily. This article is just a small attempt on my part to dispel some common myths about clinical hypnotherapy.
Myth 1: The Therapist Will Be Able To Read My Mind.
Fact: It is a common misconception that psychologists, psychiatrists and counsellors are mind-readers. This luxurious misconception is extended to include hypnotherapists as well. In reality, no one has the ability to read minds.
Myth 2: The Therapist Will Unravel All My Secrets.
Fact: Even in a state of trance, you have the choice of whether or not you want to speak. You will never be compelled to answer questions, under hypnosis, which you wouldn’t want to answer otherwise.
Myth 3: I Will Be Made To Do Embarrassing Acts, Such As Cluck Like A Hen Or Bark Like A Dog.
Fact: This assumption of hypnotherapy is simply on the basis of stage-shows or wrong portrayals by the media. Clinical hypnotherapy is a serious process that is used for the purpose of awareness and healing. It is not something that exists for entertainment purposes. You are always in control, even during hypnosis, and no one can make you do things without  your free will .
Myth 4: I Might Get “Stuck” And Never Be Able To Come Out Of Trance.
Fact: Hypnosis is a very safe process. It is nothing but a heightened sense of awareness. Under hypnosis, a person gains access to the deeper pockets of the subconscious mind. Hypnosis is a natural state just like being in a state of sleep of being wide awake. Hypnosis is a natural state that naturally gives way to other states after a while. At any point of time if the individual does not wish to remain in the state, he or she can simply come out of the hypnotic state by opening the eyes, stretching, or simply communicating to the therapist to get him or her out of trance.
Myth 5: No Matter How Hard They Try, Nobody Can Hypnotize Me.
Fact: No one can hypnotize you against your will. In clinical hypnotherapy, we do not hypnotize people just to prove a point. If you are keen on resolving your issues through hypnotherapy, you will be able to get hypnotized if you just allow yourself to participate actively in the process. Hypnosis is nothing more than a deep process of guided meditation.
Myth 6: Under Hypnosis, I Will Have No Idea Of Where I Am And I Will Not Remember Anything.
Fact: Hypnosis is not a state of sleep. In fact, under a state of hypnotic trance, most individuals are more aware of their surroundings than ever before and they can vividly recall the experiences they had during the session.
Myth 7: I Have Never Been Hypnotized Before.
Fact: All of us enter a hypnotic state at least twice everyday – once, just before falling asleep; and a second time upon waking up in the morning before getting out of bed. Most individuals easily are in a state of environmental hypnosis when they are absorbed in reading a good book or watching a movie.
According to Debbie Bensching, hypnosis is a state of inner absorption, concentration and heightened, focused attention. It is like using a magnifying glass to focus the rays of the sun and make them more powerful. Hypnosis simply allows people to access their mind’s true potential.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that frightens us…There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.”
– Nelson Mandela
Clinical hypnotherapy puts you in a state where you are more receptive to healing. The key is to allow yourself access to your own subconscious mind.
If you have any more doubts about clinical hypnotherapy and how it works, feel free to raise your concerns. I would be happy to provide clarifications.
