Mum reveals how alternative therapy in the labour ward helped her deliver without pain
Hypnotist Paul Hazell managed to banish a mum’s pain during labour armed with just a calming voice and a positive attitude, reports the Daily Mail.
Louise Walker, 30, was anxious of how she would cope with the pain of childbirth, as she is terrified of needles and scared of gas and air. Six hours into the labour, Louise, from Hull, was doubled up in agony. “I thought I was going to need all the pain relief going, it was absolutely agonising. Paul arrived when I was in the middle of a contraction, but as soon as he started talking to me I felt like a completely different person – and I’m the biggest sceptic!” said Louise. “All he did was get me to picture my wedding, but it didn’t feel like an out-of-body experience. I was still there, but the pain was gone.”After watching helplessly, Louise’s husband Gareth, 28, was relieved to see the hypnotherapy was working. “The transformation when Paul came was phenomenal. A lot of people are sceptical, but there’s no way you can fake the amount of pain relief she got from the hypnotherapy.”The couple’s baby son, Harrison, was born four hours later, at the Jubilee Birth Centre in Hull.
