Birth hypnosis is:
- Using the natural state of hypnotic focus to make birth easier, safer, and more blissful
- Shifting from normal awareness to heightened body and mind awareness
- Instantly triggering deep physical and mental relaxation anytime, anywhere
- Creating natural anesthesia with the power of your mind
- Releasing old negative ideas about what childbirth might be, and reprogramming your subconscious with wonderful new expectations
- Perhaps most importantly, learning how to control your own body and mind so that you can create the birth experience you desire
Hypnosis is not:
- Mind control
- Truth serum

What about that swinging watch?
That darn watch is the bane of our existence.
Much like birth, hypnosis has been greatly distorted by the media and popular culture. People often associate hypnosis with a swinging watch and some kind of trippy mind control.
The truth is Blissborn uses a state known as hypnosis that is a natural brain wave pattern. It's a state everyone goes into and out of several times a day.
Think about a time you felt really relaxed, zoned out, and focused in on something intently. That's it — that's basically what we're talking about.
So the swinging watch idea and people being zombie-fied, although great for freaking people out, isn't the reality. We just teach you how to use a natural state, and some tools that work really well within that relaxed and focused place.
Stage hypnosis and clucking like a chicken
You may have seen a show on a stage somewhere that has you a bit worried. We get this question a lot — will I cluck like a chicken? Not on our watch.
Here's the scoop on stage hypnosis. Stage hypnotists start out with a large group and test everyone, dismissing those that aren't responding as well. By the time they're ready to start the clucking, they have the person or people up on stage who proved to be most willing to go for it. And those people have agreed, through their participation, to go along with the show. Sure, there is some amount of focus and suggestion, but don't think for a minute that the people participating are stuck or want to quit. If they wanted to quit, they would just quit.
While the state we are using is called the same thing, the way we use it is pretty different. Blissborn helps you learn about your own abilities, and helps you develop them so they're ready for your use, instantly. Sort of like a guided meditation, your teacher is like your coach on a journey of relaxation and self-discovery.
