The impending birth of a child is both exciting and yet fraught with anxiety. Some mothers fear the pain of childbirth or how an epidural may affect their child during the birthing process. However, mothers who practice hypnobirthing often find these fears unfounded. In fact, they are more likely to have a shorter labor and less likely to use an epidural or need costly interventions, such as a C-section.
Of course, women who deliver vaginally also enjoy a shorter hospital stay and recover more quickly than those who require a C-section. Moreover, many hypnobirthers may even decide to deliver in the comfort of their own home. In addition to the many health benefits for both mother and child, hypnobirthing can significantly reduce the medical expense of labor as well.
