With Kate Middleton’s due date announced people are beginning to talk about the sort of birth she will be having. Those close to the Duchess of Cambridge say she wants a completely natural birth and is considering hypno-birthing, while being submerged in an inflatable pool filled with water. Hypno-birthing is when the mother learns self-hypnosis techniques to prepare for birth in the hope of getting through labour drug-free.
Hypno-birthing is a simple and straightforward program which many women believe to be extremely effective. It has been developed to remind mothers of the simplicity of birth by practicing a few key techniques. Mothers program their minds and condition their bodies to give birth easily. Kate wants a completely natural birth so hypno-birthing has been said to be one option that appeals to her. She has been reading up on it and listening to CDs to get into the right frame of mind.
