Does anyone know if “hypnobirthing” is something Catholic women can utilize for giving birth? All I know about it is that it seems like it’s just trying to remain as calm as possible, while breathing steadily and “meditating” during labor. I guess the “hypno” part of it made me think of “hypnosis”. Any insight? I’m not entirely sure what it entails, and most importantly, if it is morally permissible with our faith!
I am due end of November and I want to be as prepared as possible! I plan to focus on breathing, trusting my body, and constantly saying small prayers to distract my mind. Any mothers have suggestions for how best to endure labor in a Catholic way??
