Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing is a term used in the hypnotherapy and medical professions for the use of hypnosis or hypnotherapy in childbirth. See 'Commercial use of the term Hypnobirthing' below.

The movement started with the work of English obstetrician Grantly Dick-Read (1890-1959), and culminated in his book Childbirth without Fear, first published in 1942. The work was further developed in 1987 by Marie Mongan in America.

The use of hypnobirthing has become widely known among women and in obstetric units as an increasingly popular means of achieving a natural childbirth. In 2011, the UK's National Health Service (NHS) began an 18-month trial study on the effectiveness of hypnobirthing, involving 800 first-time mothers-to-be. Hypnobirthing has been incorporated into the services provided in many NHS hospitals.
