Tameside General Hospital test hypnobirthing

20th May 2011

Expectant mothers at Tameside General Hospital in Greater Manchester are being offered the opportunity to try hypnobirthing as part of an NHS trial.

The hospital is introducing the technique to women who want to take part. Studies have found self-hypnosis, which started in the United States, allows many women to give birth without pain, and without gas and air. The technique means that while women are not distracted from the pain, they learn how to stay calm so their muscles relax.
