Pregnancy And Hypnosis

LCH Discussion Group, November 2000.

One colleague posted the following request for opinions.

As many of you know my wife is currently very pregnant, in fact her due date is tomorrow. (I am getting jumpier and jumpier by the minute!)

This will be our second child and [my wife] is hoping that things start to happen very soon as she doesn’t want the baby to be induced. This is a real worry for her as our first child was induced. So she has asked if it would be possible for me to do some form of hypnotic inducement. My first reaction was “I don’t know”, and my second reaction was “I can’t see why not”.

Any way I should be more than interested to hear others’ views on this.

The responses received are included below, along with a final summary of the outcome.
