Pregnant Kate Middleton is reportedly planning to use Hypnobirthing techniques in labour when she gives birth to the royal baby in July.
The Duchess of Cambridge is thought to be preparing for childbirth with Hypnotherapy, a series of techniques she can use during the birth to reduce pain.
“The main principle of Hynobirthing is to remove fear. If you can achieve this, you will considerably reduce, and in some cases eliminate, pain, leading to an easier, calmer and more comfortable birth experience,” said Katharine Graves, a leading Hypnobirthing expert.
It’s seen as an empowering and positive event for women in labour, making it more ‘comfortable, calm and relaxed’ for new mums.
