Kate Middleton reportedly considering little-known birthing method

Fox News Magazine, July 5, 2013

The Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth to her first child this month. Some are speculating that she is considering a hypnobirth. “Hypnobirthing is essentially natural childbirth that is accomplished through deep relaxation, focus and self-hypnosis techniques,” explains Dr. Shannon Clark, a maternal-fetal medicine expert and assistant professor at UTMB. “It is based on the premises that the fear, apprehension, tension and anxiety of childbirth incite physical pain, which can reportedly be decreased or nearly eliminated with these techniques.”
