In a film about an adolescent girl, her diary opens with “Dear Diary, nothing ever changes.” It was summer and she must have been quite bored.
As we know, nothing really ever stays the same. Acknowledging that, we at Leclaire Hypnobirthing, are contributing to our ever changing language as well as our latest birthing advantages.
Today let’s take one of the words I coined:
#1 Hypnobirthing, a word coined by me in 1987, a philosophy I defined and a specific method of childbirth education that I created, incorporates mind body healing and hypnosis for a safe pain free natural birth, a relaxed C section or a comfortable medicated birth. Your choice!
Many would be copycats, have misunderstood its principles and method, thinking of it only as hypnosis during labor. Thus, we had to change the word again to Leclaire Hypnobirthing which specifies our original and the only step by step method as well as addressing prenatal anxiety and the prevention of postpartum depression.
Leclaire Hypnobirthing is both a specific method with an individualized pregnancy, labor and postpartum health plan along with our evidence based ways to overcome your fears, both today and for the rest of your life.
We would love to hear from you, your thoughts surrounding pregnancy, labor, birthing, your questions and any new words you have coined or you have seen change in meaning over time.
Next week we will define another word I created, UBORN, not unborn but uborn.
