INDUCING LABOUR

Labour induction is the artificial stimulation of uterine contractions in order to bring about birth at a time when the baby is thought to be safer outside the uterus than in it. Labour may be induced for several reasons, such as post-term pregnancy, prelabour rupture of membranes, maternal complications and fetal complications. Research suggests that there is a negative correlation between oxytocin (the hormone that helps bring about contractions) and anxiety. It might be said that women who are extremely anxious about their impending labour and birth are unable to produce the oxytocin necessary to stimulate contractions. Therefore women may find the relaxant properties of hypnosis extremely beneficial.
