Hypnotherapy, gestational age and incidence of preterm labour

PURPOSE: This study examines whether or not those women who have participated in a hypnoreflexogenous birth preparation course have a lower incidence of preterm labour and higher gestational age. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 101 women participated in the birth preparation hypnosis course (hypnomental birth preparation) and were evaluated against a parallelised control group. The following parameters were evaluated: education, number of previous pregnancies and live births, average number of cigarettes smoked per day and age of the mother. The control group was selected out of the hospital birth register from 2001 to 2008 (n=10 812). RESULTS: In the hypnosis group (n=101) there were six late preterm deliveries (5.49%) whereas in the parallelised control group there were significantly more preterm deliveries (n=11; 11.3%; p=0.02). There was also a statistically significant correlation between gestational age and maternal participation in the hypnomental birth preparation. CONCLUSION: In the hypnosis group there were significantly less preterm deliveries after parallelising the socio-economical demographics. A planned randomised controlled study of preterm labour should identify whether clinical hypnosis can reduce the incidence of preterm labour. Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart, New York.

Sex: From Entertainment and Addiction to Healthy Intimacy

Like eating-related addictions, those involving sexual urges stem from what is a normal and healthy part of life. However, once sexually-related behavior becomes less of a choice and more of an uncontrollable behavior, help is needed.

A man with a significant sexual addiction once came to see me. Apparently, his life had gotten so far out of control that his behavior patterns had ruined many otherwise successful relationships. Of course, this does not count the problems of participating in activities that were medically dangerous and even illegal. In his case, he was addicted to...

Beyond Divorce – How to become whole again

" Love is like a puzzle. When you're in love, all the pieces fit but when your heart gets broken, it takes a while to get everything back together. " ~ Unknown

If you’re recently divorced, you may have been so focused on the actual separation process that your emotions and sadness have been kept at bay. Now the papers are final and you wonder what’s next.

Grieving is natural. Anger is natural. Regret, relief, sadness, and other emotions will probably be your companions as you start your new journey. However, it is important to start to develop your inner...

Playing good-cop or bad-cop as part of effective parenting

In order to understand whether a parent should use good-cop or bad-cop techniques with their child, they must first understand how a child’s brain develops. Otherwise, they could cause long-lasting neurological damage that will affect the child later in life. A child goes through a developmental neurological growth spurt during the first 26 months. This continues substantially for the next several years. Two critical things happen. First, the social parts of their brains – which is in the inferior temporal lobes – tend to develop more substantially due to the quantity and quality of contact...
