Mums-to-be who suffer from morning sickness will tell you that it is one of the most awful feelings in the world. For many, it is considered one of the most difficult parts of pregnancy (other than the birthing itself). The feelings of joy and excitement for the pregnancy are replaced with low energy, dizziness, nausea and vomiting. As much as 2 out of 3 expecting mothers experience morning sickness at one point during their pregnancy. Some have more problems than others, and may even need hospitalisation to avoid possible dehydration and other complications.
What Is Morning Sickness?
In the medical world, morning sickness is also known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG). The term “Morning Sickness” is a misnomer, because although, most pregnant women experience this right after they wake up in the morning, this can actually strike at any time of the day, and the intensity varies from one woman to another.
There are various reasons why you may experience morning sickness. This includes changes in the production of hormones like the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and estrogen, which rapidly rises during the early parts of pregnancy. Doctors now are prescribing effective medication for morning sickness which is thought to be safe in pregnancy. However, many women are very concerned of any possible effect of taking medication during pregnancy.
Hypnotherapy to Reduce Morning Sickness
Hypnotherapy can provide very effective relief against morning sickness and the stress that usually comes with it. With each session, you will develop a sense of positivity, calmness and higher energy level in dealing with pregnancy issues, specifically, morning sickness.
Hypnotherapy can refocus your negative thoughts and feelings about food and smell and can provide you positive suggestions to change your trigger response. You’ll become more comfortable with smells and sight of food. You’ll also be attracted to the healthier types of food and drinks, and you’ll experience better digestion. Through hypnosis, you will also learn easy techniques to bring about optimism and vitality when you go about your day-to-day routine. With self-hypnosis practices, you can instantly feel better at any time of the day.
Best of all, hypnotherapy is natural and safe. That means no harm is done to you or the baby. With positive suggestions from your hypnotherapy sessions, you will be able to go through your pregnancy minus the difficulties and unpleasant feeling of morning sickness, carry on with your jubilation and excitement for that tiny miracle growing inside your belly, be able to eat healthy food and better prepare yourself for birthing and motherhood, physically and emotionally. I highly encourage mums-to-be to always choose natural and safe options for yourself and your baby.
