As a Christian who offers hypnobabies doula services and have used hypnobirthing myself, I know that there are those who are concerned about hypnosis and how it relates to their religion. Rest assured that my ONLY PURPOSE in using hypnosis for birth and pain relief is for pain relief and relaxation. My work as your doula includes traditional pain relieving techniques like back massage and optimal birth positions as well as hypnosis.
Hypnosis and Religion
Here are some resources to help you:
Hypnosis is neither anti-religious nor pro-religious. It can be used for good or bad, depending on the hypnotist and the subject. Today, most religious groups accept the proper ethical use of hypnosis for helping people. – Hypnosis Network
HYPNOSIS ITSELF IS NEITHER GOOD NOR BAD. Used wisely, it can help Christians as much as non-Christians to break bad habits and improve themselves. There are many accounts in the Bible of saints of God entering trance-like states that parallel self-hypnosis. – CreationTips.com
Colossians 3:17 – And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
