Hypnobirth: Theories and Practice for Healthcare Professionals is a guide for healthcare providers who work with expecting mothers and their loved ones. Yulia Watters applies the theory and application of Milton Erickson to hypnosis during pregnancy, childbirth, and post-partum, including an overview of the history of hypnosis. Hypnobirth does not offer a magical way to a pain-free birth, but rather an understanding of how hypnosis can address certain symptoms as well as unexpected circumstances associated with pregnancy and delivery. Healthcare professionals will develop a deeper understanding of the potential of hypnosis and how to practice its tools on a daily basis, learning to view hypnosis as a state of mind and way of being, as well as acquiring concrete techniques for its implementation. This work is particularly important to healthcare professionals looking to learn about hypnosis and its specific tools which they can teach expectant mothers during pregnancy and birthing
Yulia Watters, PhD, is director of curriculum development in the School of Marriage and Family Sciences at Northcentral University.

Editorial Reviews

"Yulia Watters has written an excellent book for both mental health and health care providers who want to learn more about hypnobirthing. She dismantles many of the myths related to trance work and hypnobirthing. Watters offers a solid description of a systemic and relational approach to working with patients; she invites providers to consider the relational web of which they are a part. Hypnobirth has much to offer any provider who works with expectant mothers."
