Pregnancy and childbirth is one of the most joyful events in a woman’s life. However, pregnancy can be very painful and exhausting. Nausea and vomiting, mood swings and frequent urination are one of the many symptoms a woman experience while carrying life inside of her. Another symptom that can be very inconvenient for mothers is insomnia. We future moms get to experience all those grueling symptoms I just mentioned all morning and night and at the end of the day, all we want is some good, quality snooze. But unfortunately for some, that does not happen. Insomnia during pregnancy is caused by a combination of your changing hormones, the stress of being pregnant and the discomfort caused your growing belly among other things. There are a lot of ways to help you sleep during pregnancy like drinking warm milk or herbal teas, getting yourself a comfortable pillow with back support and some relaxation techniques. You can also get some good sleep with relaxing, hypnotic music.
Hypnosis is being in the state where your conscious mind is relaxed and your subconscious takes the wheel. It can involve music and positive visualization. Hypnotic, relaxing music can be a very effective way to help you sleep while pregnant. Music can bring out any emotions it aims to in you. It can make you dance, make you feel emotional or make you sleepy. When you stress out because you can’t sleep, your body produces adrenaline, making your muscles tense, therefore making it a lot more difficult to sleep. Hypnotic and relaxing music can help you relax your body and mind with its soothing sounds. It will help your breathing become even, increasing oxygenation and releasing oxytocin which is said to influence sleep processes. Listening to relaxing and hypnotic music can even help promote bonding with your baby and encourage a positive mindset around birth.
There are a lot of hypnotic, relaxing music tracks available on the market for you. You need to find one that is suitable for any stage in your pregnancy. If you constantly practice relaxation and hypnosis through music, you will eventually learn to relax automatically and this will help you have a more comfortable and easy birth.
