Labour - Is it possible to practice self-hypnosis during labour

January 20, 2007 4:28am CST
I am about 9 weeks from having my first baby, and I am hoping that the birth will be natural. My present options for pain relief are gas and air.... I have had self-hypnosis recommended to me, but I cant imagine how anyone could possibly practice this whilst distracted by so much pain. Has anyone tried it, and can tell me it works???? Or that it doesnt work!
