Does your program really work?
YES! We have had many very comfortable and peaceful births with it.
What are the bases of the Hypno-Beginning© program?
This program teaches expectant parents powerful self-hypnosis techniques to achieve a nice and peaceful childbirth.
Will I remember anything of my birth if I am in hypnosis?
Of course! They will be very pleasant memories. You might experience time distortion and feel like an hour lasted only minutes just like when you are enjoying yourself very much at a party. It is a very nice feeling. If you compare to a woman who chose to have a natural childbirth but did not know of hypnosis to help her. She might remember every minute of every hour she spent screaming, but who would want that?!
Hypnoharmonie LLC values your trust and privacy while online. We will never rent, sell or provide your personal information you submit on our web site.
What is the best way for us to learn your program?
The most complete way to learn the Hypno-Beginning© program is to attend classes by certified instructors. This would be the equivalent of having your own personal trainer if you decided to start an exercises program for example. Keep in mind that you still have to commit to the program and do all the homework and exercises.
The second way is to get our home-study program. It comes with 5 powerful self-hypnosis recordings and a very detailed explanation book. It can be a very good option if classes in your area have not started yet or if you have been put to bed rest by your care giver for example. In order to get all the benefits and experience the birth you want, you really have to follow the program and again do the exercises. Keep in mind that this is all self-hypnosis and you are the only person capable of providing yourself with the perfect anesthesia and degree of relaxation required to birth your baby beautifully. All my patients amaze themselves(and the attending nurses) when they achieve such great level of comfort and peace during the birth of their babies. You can do too. In our example of a physical training program, this would be the equivalent of using home exercises videos to train.
The third way is to just get the self-hypnosis recordings. This can be a valid option but we highly recommend you attend classes or get the home-study program as they are so much more complete.
I have bought a lot of books and registered for other childbirth classes because I want to know everything about childbirth. Is this a good idea?
You have to be very selective of what you will expose yourself to. Some books can create a lot of useless anxiety. In a conference, I read a little paragraph in a book about baby‚s movements in the womb to illustrate this fact. The baby‚s movements were described as being „violent attacks‰! Can you imagine? The same thing applies for television shows which depict birth as invariably a life threatening situation. COME ON! If your regular childbirth preparation class starts by the instructor telling you that you will experience great deals of PAIN, walk out right away. Your Hypno-Beginning© instructors have been trained in childbirth education and will provide you with the proper positive information you need to know. Trust them.
My hospital personnel has never heard of hypnosis for childbirth. Should I change hospital?
You do not need the attending personnel to know about hypnosis to be able to give birth in the perfect manner your classes will have trained you for. You will be provided with a sign to put on your room‚s door informing people you are using hypnosis. You will also have informed them about your needs in your birthing plan. Most probably, you will WOW them in being able to birth your baby so beautifully to a point where they will inquire about the method. Do bring your Hypno-Beginning© book at the hospital so people can browse through it and learn more about this amazing tool.
Why are you called Hypno-Beginning©?
We have chosen the name Hypno-Beginning© for two reasons. First, you will provide your baby a great beginning for its fantastic journey into the world. Second, we know from experience that once people discover how powerful hypnosis is, it is the beginning for them of a life-long use of this marvelous power they have.
Who is the baby on the header of this web-site?
The beautiful baby on the right holding the pendulum and the medical stick is ME, Nathalie Fiset, family doctor and certified hypnotherapist. Medicine and hypnosis are two of my passions, and this image represents that they go together. It also shows you that it is child's play to learn hypnosis, providing you are interested in doing so. Through the Internet, I am able to rapidly transmit my knowledge to expectant couples on how hypnosis has the power to help them enjoy a great natural childbirth.
You got us interested. When should we start the Hypno-Beginning© program?
The best is to allow four to six weeks to do the program. You can chose to start earlier if you desire as long as you do your hypnosis exercises regularly during the last four to six weeks of your pregnancy. I have done some very fruitful one session with my patients so it is actually never too late to start and benefit from the Hypno-Beginning© program.
What are the qualifications of my instructor?
We require a minimum of childbirth knowledge, a certification in hypnosis and the Hypno-Beginning© instructor course. Nothing less! Many of our instructors will inform you that they have additional qualifications when they present themselves at the beginning of your program.
I was planning on using other techniques during the birth of my baby. Can I go in the tub, move around and use gravity?
Of course! You can move around and this will help your baby descend and take its place. You can receive nice massages, you can listen to music. Whatever works for you. You will have learned eyes-opened hypnosis and selective anesthesia enabling you to be very mobile. Around the final stages of the birth, most mothers chose to stay comfortably in bed, resting in soft pillows thus having to provide a minimal effort and enjoy the birth.
I am not certain I can achieve this kind of control on my mind and my body. How can I succeed?
It doesn‚t take any special skills and you will amaze yourself by how beautifully you will be able to birth your baby. We witness marvelous childbirths using the Hypno-Beginning© program very frequently. It is a complete and comprehensible program designed to provide you with all the tools you need to achieve the perfect birth for you. We know you will succeed and your instructors will make certain you leave your classes equipped with everything necessary to live an incredible experience. Rest assured that most, if not all of my patients, have displayed some degrees of doubts before birth. To do otherwise would be unusual. When the time came, they were able to use all their self-hypnosis tools in the best possible manner.
Did Dr Fiset „invent‰ hypnosis for childbirth?
Hypnosis for a comfortable and peaceful childbirth has been around ever since the dawn of men. It has been described in books even before the 18 th century. Dr Fiset did not invent such a beautiful tool which has been used instinctively by women to give birth all over the world. All the techniques, all the knowledge has been here forever. You can say that all these powerful elements were not put together yet in such a simple and understandable fashion though. Like a puzzle that would have been scattered all around in your house, all the pieces existed but it was hard for one to make it all fit together. She organized and simplified the knowledge to make it accessible to anybody who is interested in using hypnosis for childbirth. The fact that she has a fifteen year medical experience and a very thorough hypnosis background „gave life‰ to this unique program. It is simple, very detailed and well researched.
What is modern hypnosis?
As you know, modern hypnosis is simply a deep relaxation state of the mind and body where, since the critical part of the brain is pushed aside, positive suggestions can be offered to the subconscious mind that result in positive changes.
What is the difference between the conscious and subconscious mind?
I don't want to get in the very technical and boring definitions of the conscious and subconscious mind but in a general way the subconscious is the part of the brain that functions in a more automatic way. I like this example Don Mottin, a very gifted hypnotherapist, gives:
Do this little game. First, say the alphabet out loud. Try it. Notice how fast it comes out. This is the subconscious at work. Now, I am going to make it easier for you. I am going to diminish your task. You only have to say every other letter!! Do it. Unless you have done this many times before, your conscious mind had to do the work; you had to think of what you were saying.
Who discovered hypnosis?
If you look at the history of man, you can only conclude that hypnosis is as ancient as the human mind itself. Instinctively, man has always used hypnosis since it is a natural and very comfortable state.
Why do people fear hypnosis then?
Because of the negative images portrayed in the past by cinema, television and some hypnotists who wanted to impress people by presenting hypnosis with all kinds of false claims. People also think they will be controlled by the hypnotist. Nothing can be further from the truth. The hypnotist does not have powers, merely the knowledge. He can guide you into hypnosis but there is nothing you will do against your will, you mind knows what is good for you. If you look at hypnosis shows, nobody is being dragged to the stage, they are all volunteers and now have the perfect excuses to do very absurd things saying to their friends: "The hypnotist made me do it!" Truth of the matter is if a person did not want to be hypnotized, there would be no show at all ·
What does modern hypnosis have to offer that we haven't really heard of?
A 100% natural method, proven effective, with no side effects, to change your life in a positive way. What more can you ask for?
How can hypnosis help me?
By listening to a specific recording specially designed to help you in a provided field, you should see an improvement in your behavior and beliefs very rapidly. Since we do not learn at the same pace (remember your experience in school, there were the fast learners, the average, and the slower ones). We do not know how many times you have to listen to the recording before you feel and notice an improvement. Some people say you should listen to a hypnosis program for 21 days, others are saying as few as five days. If you skip days, no problem the message will be imputed anyway so you do not have to commit to this every day. As a matter of fact, some people experience changes in their lives after just one session. One thing is for sure, if you listen to the recording "motivation for work" for over twenty-one days and you do not notice any difference, maybe you should ask yourself if you are really at the right work place.
The other way of having hypnosis help you, by modifying or changing behaviors you are not particularly fond of, is by seeing a skilled hypnotherapist for a private session. This way the hypnotherapist can work specifically with you on the problem at hand.
That brings us to the number one condition for hypnosis to work: motivation. The person has to want to change a given behavior or belief. This means her subconscious mind is ready to accept and make the changes. This is why a hypnosis recording should NEVER be given as a gift because the will has to come from the person herself. Let's face it, if Mrs. Smith gives Mr. Smith a hypnosis recording or even better pays for a private session with a skilled hypnotherapist to stop smoking, the odds that Mr. Smith stops smoking are next to none. He has to be the one who is ready and willing to change. In the same manner, I highly recommend to never give a recorded hypnosis session for weight loss to a friend. The interest has to come from the friend. Plus this way, you are seriously testing your friendship!
Tell us about the history of hypnosis?
The history of hypnosis can be found on many websites so there is no point in going through it completely. We can tell you that hypnosis can be traced to the dawn of civilization. The very first recorded surgeries with hypnosis as the only anesthetic go as far back as the early 1800s. We have a lot more to discover and understand about how the human brain functions. Modern hypnosis has come through in helping many problems that remained almost hopeless in the past. Dave Elman in my opinion was a great hypnotherapist who taught doctors and dentists the many applications of hypnosis as in pain management. It has been an impressive experience to hear a recording of Dave Elman help a man with a 40 year stutter get rid of it in less than 30 minutes in a single session. Stuttering is a condition that can be greatly improved or even eliminated rapidly with the help of hypnosis. Very often, the person suffering from stuttering would benefit from consulting with a skilled hypnotherapist because the root of the problem is often found in a trauma that happened in the childhood. So far, nobody really picked up where Dave Elman left and it will be a great step forward when someone continues his work and restarts teaching dentists and doctors the many applications of hypnosis.
In your opinion, what is the most powerful hypnosis tool ever invented?
That is a given one!!
Take a moment to think of what in your opinion is the most powerful hypnosis tool ever invented. Is it the hypno-disk? Is it the pendulum? Is it the pocket watch?
Yes, that's right: television!! Actually all media holds a powerful hypnotic power over you. How else would you explain why more than half the North American population is overweight? How would you explain that it costs millions of dollars to put on a commercial during the Superbowl and that companies are fighting for the spots and making money out of it (not on the exact moment, but isn't it surprising how you just want to buy a specific model of car when spring comes?). This is why if you listen to your little hypnosis recordings for twenty or thirty minutes every day but then you turn on your television and watch it for four hours every day and they show you how much of a good time you are going to have if you eat this and how popular you are going to be if you drink that, well the hypnosis might not feel like it's working. Let's face it, they have teams of hypnotists so I don't even compete with them. That is why weight loss is such a hard battle to fight.
Furthermore, next time you go to the store, notice how some magazines offer you in their first pages "the new secret and miraculous way to lose weight " and then the last pages are filled with triple layer chocolate cake recipes. They have been in business forever and they will be for a very long time. That is what I call self-generated business.
Didn't you tell us that hypnosis could not make us do anything that would be negative for us?
Yes, I did and it is true for the very most part. But since you have read this far, allow me to share the two exceptions to this rule. The first one is if your subconscious mind is imputed with negative messages before it is mature enough to assume its protective function, which is at a very early age. It is also true for people with limited intellectual capacities. For example, if a young child is being constantly fed the message that he is "a no good, unwanted child, a burden · etc." then he will incorporate this message in his profound belief system. These beliefs of being unworthy or not good enough will then be the basis for this person's life behaviors and poor self-image and can result in addictions, recurring difficulties in personal relationships and more. Rest assured that even such profound negative grounds can be modified and improved notably with the help of hypnosis. Listening to recordings is one way, but sometimes private sessions with a skilled hypnotherapist can greatly improve the situation.
The second exception of when hypnosis can make you think or do things that are not good for yourself is if the negative message is repeated over and over to your subconscious. In a way, it's as if the mind gives up and says: "All right, I have seen this message so often, it didn't feel right to me but I encounter it so often it must be true." This is where television, and all forms of publicity, have succeeded in making us accept all kinds of harmful and negative behaviors, overeating being the most obvious one. Stop and think of this for a minute, over half the North American adult population is overweight. If you look at civilizations when television was not invented, the rate of obesity was almost nonexistent. Imagine that you are watching your favorite comedy show, you are laughing, you feel like you are almost part of this happy and warm group and then in a very fast and subtle way, your mind sees a commercial of pizza or chips and then back to your happy people. What happens when you are lonely, or bored and you want to feel you are part again of this fun and loving group, your brain thinks it's in the pizza and the pizza ends up · in your stomach.
Television commercials are usually 30 seconds in duration because they don't want you to realize that this is different from the program you are watching, they want your subconscious mind to associate laughter, pleasure and happiness with their products · and it does.
You are lucky because I have just given you a very powerful gift right now by bringing to your attention something you knew all along, that is to say that television is bombarding you with hypnosis and the more you watch television, the more your behavior is modeled by the commercials you see. Now that you know, you can either choose to be critical when you see a commercial or better yet, take a little walk (good for exercise). I personally feel it easier to almost never watch television, providing me with a lot more free time
