Hypnosis therapy is an option that both psychologically and physically improves a woman’s chances to conceive, especially if she has been having difficulty. Hypnosis for pregnancy is a natural and healthy way to combat problems with the process.
Research has proven the strong connection that exists between a person’s mind and their overall health. The body can function according to a person’s expectations.
Sometimes deeply rooted negative thoughts or fears may influence a woman’s physical ability to get pregnant.
Unnecessary stress can put a heavy physical burden on a woman as she’s trying to conceive. She may be excessively worried about the delivery process, for example. As a result, she may or may not be aware of her own unhealthy worries that may be affecting her ability to become pregnant.
Hypnosis therapy also can affect a woman’s chances of conceiving physically, as well. Often women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) must lie still during the procedure. They also must be very relaxed following the procedure to help increase their chances of having the egg reconnect with the uterus.
Many times women can be nervous and have anxiety following IVF because they want positive results. It is psychologically tasking to be worried about the success of the expensive process. As a result, many women tense up due to the pressure they put on themselves. Obviously, this is the opposite of what needs to be happening. Hypnosis therapy helps to relax the woman to improve her IVF success rate.
According to an Israeli study conducted in 2004, hypnosis has the potential to double IVF success rates. The study found that 28 percent of 185 women became pregnant following hypnosis therapy. Only 14 percent of the women who were not hypnotized became pregnant.
Over 6 million American women experience infertility, according to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine.
Women interested in hypnosis for IVF procedure should anticipate needing four to five sessions before the procedure; however, the more sessions, the better when it comes to such an important event. Additional sessions following the procedure can be completed to reinforce the state of relaxation and positive thinking.
