No, there are some factors affecting birth which are outside of our control. However, as a guide, we find that around 65-70% of HypnoBirthing mums don’t need any form of pain-relief. And some say they did not feel any pain – just pressure.
Around a further 20-25% only require something mild like gas and air.
The remaining 5-10% usually fall into what we call ‘special circumstances’, where medical intervention is required. However, HypnoBirthing mums still tell us that HypnoBirthing really helped, even if they were induced or ended up with a caesarean.
Remember, the aim of HypnoBirthing is not a completely pain-free, perfect ‘natural birth’ (although that is possible) it is to have a calmer, easier, more comfortable birth where you are in control and in a way that most mirrors nature.
