What Babies Remember

When do babies begin to remember?

In my HypnoBirthing classes I address this question, because this is very important to know for future moms and dads.

Approximately since 8 weeks of gestation, when the baby's brain begins to function, the mind begins to function as well, and the subconscious mind begins to record absolutely everything. As if the new fresh clean notebook is open and the writing begins in this book of new life.

Every emotion, every motion, every sound, every feeling - EVERYTHING - is recorded within the baby's book of life! So, everything that we have ever experienced is stored in our subconscious mind. Of course, the conscious mind is not functioning yet. It is only activated as baby's mind begins to develop and begins its full function at age of approximately 6 years old. Until then, the life of a child is within the subconscious realm and permanent memory. 

Babies have happiness emotions, activated by their mother doing some pleasurable for her activity, and experiencing excitement. Breathing and doing exercises activating healthy hormonal flow brings her baby a pleasant state of mind. 

When sudden movements, unpleasant thoughts, other unfriendly sensations enter her mind, the mother unconsciously allows her moods transmit to her baby. Baby begins to develop fear.

Babies do remember birth. Many adults through hypnosis regression access those long term memories of their own birth, otherwise forgotten and unaccessible to their conscious mind. The more peaceful the birth, the more pleasant the first impressions of the world around the baby is for the baby.

Moms who exercise self-control in their thoughts, who only allow positive thinking, who use self-hypnosis to re-instill thoughts and visualizations of positive, peaceful, smooth and comfortable birthing for their baby are proven to do well in real situation of their labor, no matter what unfolds. As they remain peaceful and positive, their babies are born into a peaceful and loving world. It is all scientifically researched and proven.

HypnoBirthing is a philosophy of relaxation during labor and peaceful thinking during birthing, practicing self-hypnosis for labor and birth. Acquire this skill now, so your baby remembers pleasant memories. Ask about it today.

Smiling and The Good Mood

According to ABC News a new study was done to prove that a smile of her own baby to the mother becomes a trigger of an amazing inflow of oxytocyn, equalling a strong doze of cocaine!

Oxytocyn, a neurotransmitter and a hormone, is released into the brain in large amounts after relaxing the muscles in the reproductive area. Oxytocyn is said to be the strongest natural good mood pill. An inflow of oxytocyn can result from a good workout, deep breathing, kissing, smiling, hugging, touching, bonding, love-making, doing something you love, and saying nice things to yourself or others.

The strongest doze of oxytocyn, a neurotransmitter creating wonderful mood, released in the brain while a woman is in labor, and then giving birth. Having a peaceful relaxing mood, coupled with deep breathing during labor, helps a woman place her attention onto a pleasurable side of labor, positive effects of breathing and relaxation, and divert discomfort. In many cases, the attention to pleasure creates orgasmic effect during birth!

Speaking of saying nice things to yourself, reciting positive affirmations, as part of her preparation to labor, is a really strong relaxing way to creating a pathway to bliss during labor.

When the baby is born, the other's body receives a strong doze of oxytocyn and endorphines (which have the numbing effect in addition to being a strong relaxant). Later during breastfeeding the same hormones are released into the blood stream, oxytocyn and endorphines, and making the milk "sweet" for the baby, create the effect of good mood for the both of them.

Alternatively, it has been discovered that smiling in itself is a compelling trigger of release of large dozes of oxytocyn.  That means if you are in a bad mood, tired or angry, sit down someplace quiet, take a deep breath and smile. Think of something very pleasant and positive, and say to yourself, " I am relaxed, I am in a good mood. I love my baby, I love my husband." Naturally, the smiling triggers positive physical changes in your body and creates a relaxing smoothing effect.

Next thing to do is to try it. Let me know, how it worked for you, write your comments in the space below or e-mail me.

Miracle mum brings premature baby son back to life.....

26 / 08 / 2010 - Miracle mum brings premature baby son back to life with two hours of loving cuddles after doctors pronounce him dead

An Australian mother has told how her touch brought her 'dead' baby 
 back to life.
Doctors gave tiny Jamie Ogg no chance of survival when he was born 
prematurely at 27 weeks weighing just 2lb.
 His twin sister Emily had survived but after battling for 20 minutes 
 to get him to breathe Jamie was declared dead.
 He was handed to his mother Kate so she and her partner David could 
 grieve and say their goodbyes.

 But after two hours of being spoken to, touched cuddled and held by 
 his mother he miraculously began showing signs of life.
 Then after being given breast milk on his mother's finger, he began 
 breathing regularly.
 Kate, who gave birth after a three-hour labour in March, has spoken 
 of how vital 'skin-on-skin' care can be for a sick baby, or 
 'kangaroo touch' as it is known in Australia. 'Skin-on-skin' care is 
when the child is laid on the mother.
 Normally, premature babies are sent to intensive care and she was 
 only given her son to hold because he was thought to have died.
 Telling how the drama unfolded, she said: 'The doctor asked me after 
 the birth had we chosen a name for our son.
 'I said, "Jamie", and he turned around with my son already wrapped 
 up and said, "We've lost Jamie, he didn't make it, sorry."
 'It was the worse feeling I've ever felt. I unwrapped Jamie from his 
 'He was very limp. His little arms and legs were just falling down 
 away from his body.
 'I took my gown off and arranged him on my chest with his head over 
 my arm and just held him.
 'He wasn't moving at all and we just started talking to him. We told 
 him what his name was and that he had a sister.
 'We told him the things we wanted to do with him throughout his life.'
 Jamie occasionally gasped for air, which doctors said was a reflex 
 She added: 'After just five minutes I felt him move as if he were 
 startled, then he started gasping more and more regularly.
 'I thought, "Oh my God, what's going on?" A short time later he 
 opened his eyes. It was a miracle.
 'I told my mum, who was there, that he was still alive. Then he held 
 out his hand and grabbed my finger.
 'He opened his eyes and moved his head from side to side.'
 She said they passed on a message to their doctor insisting Jamie 
 was showing signs of life, but he sent back a midwife with the reply 
 that they were just natural reflexes and that there was no possible 
 way he could still be alive.
 Kate then said to her husband, 'What if he lives?'
 She added: 'I was like, "We could be the luckiest parents in the 
 'I gave Jamie some breast milk on my finger, he took it and started 
 regular breathing.
 'At that point the doctor came back. He got a stethoscope, listened 
 to Jamie's chest and just kept shaking his head.
 'He said, "I don't believe it, I don't believe it".'

 David, speaking to the Australian TV show Today Tonight, said: 
 'Luckily, I've got a very strong, very smart wife.
 'She instinctively did what she did. If she hadn't have done that,  then Jamie probably wouldn't be here.'
 The doctor who delivered Jamie refused to be interviewed for the TV

Why Pushing Is Not Necessary…..

Why Pushing Is Not Necessary…..
Most experienced midwives know and wholeheartedly agree with Marie Mongan’s concept of HypnoBirthing and what Mongan is saying about pushing.

Pushing, not even excessive pushing, but just pushing, can be detrimental in labor, particularly in final stages of labor.
When a woman is taught to push, she is pushing the baby’s body against the opening that is not open yet enough to let the baby through. She is pushing, urging the baby to come out, and the baby’s body and the mother’s body are not yet synchronized in their readiness. While pushing the baby he mother  misunderstands the references she is working with.

What is implied in the HypnoBirthing philosophy is that a woman should listen to her body and wait for signals. For this ability to listen to her body and to “hear” what her body tells her is happening, a woman needs to prepare herself ahead of labor with exercises in relaxation so she can be attuned to her body. In the last stages of labor there will appear the “urge” to push.

In her book HypnoBirthing Marie Mongan suggests that the urge to push is a conditioned response, and midwives know this as reference to the rectal pressure that all women feel, and that many women translate as "an urge to push". They say they feel the pressure and then have an urge to push and then they DECIDE to push with that pressure.

On the contrary, rectal pressure is ONLY RECTAL PRESSURE and should not be interpreted as pushing urges.
We are so conditioned that when we feel pressure on our rectums we must sit down on the toilet. Pushing out the poop is a normal sequence to feeling that rectal pressure.
If you don’t sit on the toilet and push the poop back in, what happens?
Your poop would eventually COME OUT BY ITSELF!!
There is also an element of pleasure associated with doing your number 2. Freud referred to it since very early childhood experiences, when at the age of 3 all children experiment with holding their poop and then letting it out, experiencing a suggested secondary sexual pleasure.

Back to when a baby has moved very low into the moms pelvis she will feel rectal pressure from the baby’s head. First she begins to experience this pressure feeling it at the peak of every surge. Then she begins to feel it during the whole surge, intensifying at the peak. Eventually, the rectal pressure is constant, peaking higher with each surge and her muscles begin to propel the baby downward. It is a REFLEXIVE action. She cannot DECIDE to do it or not. Her body does it, and beautifully. THIS IS WHAT WE ARE WAITING FOR!!!
The trick to pleasure is while she is having those rectal pressure urges, she MUST BE BREATHING, utilizing the HypnoBirthing Birth Breathing.
During the final stage of labor, when experiencing the Urge Surge, mom’s job is to breathe!
Dads! READ THIS: Keep her focused on her breathing, otherwise she may shift her attention to her sensations and then her pleasure will escape.
The intensity of her muscles working may make her breath catch for a moment...this is ok...she should continue to listen to her body and breathe her baby DOWN. Some moms feel that bearing down during the peak of this surge is helpful and feels good (even orgasmic). Other moms feel better if they only allow their uterus to work and they breathe. The important thing is for her to listen to HER WISE BODY and to be given the space and respect to do so. AND BREATHE!

Happy Birthing!

Smiling During Labor?

People ask when I work with clients, how do i notice the changes that occur in a pregnant mom, when she is ready for the birth of her baby.

Most moms are unaware how important their thoughts are in every moment of their life, and particularly in labor.

Most of the time I notice this slight change in her attitude, her behavior, her demeanor. When she begins her thinking from fear position, and continues into the questions and doubts, her face reflects that pain. She says that she wants to avoid the pain, but in fact, she behaves on the opposite.

Fear is natural and healthy when it allows a natural effective mechanism for normal survival. In labor time to be in fear is opposite to being effective.

Educating herself to know what happens during labor is important because it eliminates fear. Knowing the facts is power. Being empowered by knowledge gives the woman strength needed to complete laboring.

Showing the posture, position, breathing of the woman who is in peace and ready for the birth, she begins her labor and moves and breathes in a way that is relaxed and peaceful.

When she begins with a question: What do I want for this birth? the answer begins to emerge to show her what is possible.

Immediately, the possibilities are endless. She can begin to create her own peaceful world and move in it with an attitude that reflects her belief, that is emerged from her value system:

I am mother
My body knows what to do
My baby knows what to do
I trust my body

Affirming what she wants (as opposed to affirming what she does not want, what moms usually do unknowingly) she begins to sort for the signs in the environment confirming what begins to happen toward the birth that she wants.

She recognizes those signs and acknowledges them with a smile.

The baby reflectively moved down the birthing path in her womb, out of her womb, and out into the world, being healthy and feeling loved. And all the while she continues to smile.

HypnoBirthing is about Hypnotic Techniques Like Breathing for Birthing

Hypnosis is a natural state of focused attention to the exclusion of everything else. Nothing else. Trust me. I have been teaching hypnotic techniques for over 10 year.

Once you concentrated your attention on some activity, like reading a book, or breathing,  you enter in a hypnotic trance.

Besides, setting you at ease, relaxing and developing your imagination, as in meditation, hypnotic trances are a very healthy state. Research shows that regular use of hypnosis, self-hypnosis or meditation improves immune system and other functions in our body.

Very few know this and most are deathly afraid if hypnosis. So let me tell you.
The top model Gisele chose natural birth in water. She insisted to get this right in the papers, as it is important to her to show that the birth that she had was NOT a medicated hospital birth.

She used breathing and relaxation. That's hypnosis.

One hypnotic exercise we teach in the HypnoBirthing class is Deep Breathing for labor.  A recent student mom in my HypnoBirthing class could not breathe deeply. All she could do is inhale on 3 - 1,2,3,  and exhale on the count of 2: 1, and 2. Blowing all the air out at once. She just could not do it. 

It took a little adjustment and relaxation before she could inhale on 4 and exhale on 6. Three weeks later she is doing so well as inhale on 8 and exhale on 10. 

What did she do in those three weeks?

Just practice. Practice breathing and practice with intention. 

Her intention was to have her baby a natural way, just as nature intended, peacefully, and comfortably, with no emergencies, somewhat like celebrities do. 

Two weeks from now she is due to have her baby. Wait for an update. 

Sabina (mom from a class two months ago) said I was tough on her. She could not find the time, she was a busy lady). I showed her a choice. I showed her a video of a birth that was quiet.  A real birth. Peaceful and quiet. She wanted that. That made her practice her breathing. Now she is happy to have birthed her first baby peacefully and with a feeling of comfort. Here is her testimonial:

"Morrin, you are a wonderful teacher. I am so glad I met you. (My husband) and I are thankful for your work with us so we could do what we did - had a peaceful birth. (Husband) was frantic at first and then I reminded him to be focused. He then as if flipped a switch. He stayed focused and guided me the entire time of labor. Your insisting on my practice my breathing was key to my success. Thank you for teaching us." Sabina, 38.

What birth do you want?

Miscarriage and Life the Life You Want

I received a letter in response to my previous post from someone who experienced extensive losses. For some reason the posting of that letter directly onto the blog did not work. I will respond to this letter through this blog now.

The author was alerting me that my post seemed upfront and "insensitive" to her in her grieving process.
Let me respond. There is no disrespect intended to anyone. Secondly, I realize that if you have any kind of a response you probably are still grieving, and experiencing inner resistance to my words.  I don't address this to any particular person in any particular case, all private work is done personally one-on-one. Whereas all of the audiences' concerns are actual and valid, my intent is to remind all of you that the power of your mind is enormous. "When you have the right conception you will conceive." Direct your thoughts and intentions forward toward what you want.  This is a discussion of the position you can choose to take, a choice you make and not an advice of any kind. This is all there is to say in a nutshell.

I am a hypnotherapist and I work with fertility issues, as well as safe, comfortable and intended birthing of that baby. I work with people who are wiling and able to put their discord behind them and want my help to bring their life to the next level, where they can experience the exquisite life of their intent, not just a mediocre existence. I have consistent success with conception. But this work is not for everyone. It is a very exclusive, intent work only for those who  indeed want to experience extraordinary.

My post was directed to some of my clients as well as for all who are interested. I am glad it stirs up the thinking. If an expression of my opinion, as well as the line of my work is interesting to you, let me know, and we can meet for further discussion. In no way these posts can be considered medical advice. I am  merely suggesting a consideration and change in thought.

Transformational change is the primary direction with my work. It may include shaking your beliefs and myths about yourself. I often emphasize that where you put your attention there you get results. Whereas I sympathyze with your losses, defeats and disappointments, judging from your post, you are a strong person, with determined character, and a will to succeed in having the life that you want. You know exactly what you want. I can see that. Here I am suggesting that you will be able to have what you want when you put your attention to it, all that from the position of opportunity not from the position of lack. Position of opportunity, not a position of lack. Then your life unfolds surprises, including divine timing and soul connection with your baby, lessons learned and peace found from it.

Last month I went overseas to teach spiritual classes to groups of people who lost their loved ones. We spoke on souls connection and lessons learned. Each individual then had a spiritual personal connection with their loved one, and in a state of higher consciousness received channeled answers from their loved ones contributing to learning their lessons. Spiritual soul connection and integration of lessons is tightly connected with loss of loved ones. The group then worked with the intent of creating the outcome for the group and for each individual so the future becomes present.

I believe that we are all connected. And when we realize this connection, learn about the past, and make decisions about the future, we begin to move forward, not backward. This is how the process of living the life is organized.  Each person takes as much time as needed for them to process what they feel is important to them. Grieving, coping can take years and become a habit.  All I do is just remind you of that natural process of life learning and moving on.

I will see that your thoughts get posted, as well as any replies to this message.

With Love and Light,

Miscarriage and Avatar

Hi Ladies:

The movie, Avatar, that I saw last night inspired me to continue with my blog for you. Without telling you the whole story, I will mention that the Avatar main hero in the movie fought for what he felt was the right thing to do. For himself and for the people. As a true leader, mythological hero.

He went onto a mission with a particular intention and when he received more information he was able to then transform in a way that enabled him to make a different decision about what was right for him.

Spiritual aspect of this belief is undeniable.

You can choose to live your life for your own fulfillment. And this is fine too.  Finding peace for your own soul is a life time endeavour for many of us.

Now I am talking about doing things for the people, as a contribution to the life in the Universe.

Consider your life part of the liquid flow of the life of all living beings. Then it becomes increasingly clear how important for the rest of us are your own personal growing and taking responsibility for your life choices.

Putting miscarriage behind you and learning to go on is an important way to getting to having your baby.

In fact it is the only way, and the faster it happens the better.

Some moms say they want to try to cope on their own, see what happens in a few months, try to "deal" with their emotions for a while, etc.

Notice the indefinite action intention here in the word TRY.

Some go deeper into grief as time goes on. Learning to live the new story now - I lost my pregnancy, I am a failure.  My body malfunctioned. What now?

Inspiring the sadness in themselves and their body, while thinking, watching or noticing a pregnant woman, envying every pregnant woman, doubting herself.

Indulging in sadness around pregnancy. Withdrawing from life. Feeling inadequate. Afraid to connect.

Indulgence in such ways is a dangerous activity in every aspect of it.

Dangerous, because the longer we go, acclimating with the sensations of sadness and grief in our bodies, in relation to pregnancy, the more firmly our body responds to triggers to that sadness in relation to pregnancy. In other words, more sadness flows in with activities associated with pregnancy: making love,  watching a movie about family, seeing other families, even eating dinner together with husband becomes a highlight of that internal emotion.

Instead of such indulgence and growing sense of inadequacy, STOP. Follow me into a great exercise that will open doors to your new pregnancy in your body, creating possibilities for your body to produce more eggs, to become fertile and pregnant again, easily with very little effort on your part.

All you have to do is follow me here to find that feeling that will help you create your new pregnancy.

A grieving ex-mom called for help.

A few deep breathing exercises quickly calmed her,  relaxed and helped her positive attitude, allowed her to begin to re-create her state of what she reported like, being in the flow, at her best, when she could not put her foot down wrong, all from a position of opportunity.

She began relevant exercises and worked with our guidance on the regular basis. We helped her get pregnant again. She is 43 years old and about to birth her first baby. I can't help sharing the radiant look in her eyes, that last time I saw her.

Her commitment to herself was strong. As we worked along together, some of her beliefs were challenged, some of her life had changed as a result of her commitment.

And the benefit is obvious, though, she is no longer sad.

Another woman, Olga, 39, came to me recently, I have only worked with her for a few months, she was very opinionated, yet spiritual. Her spiritual soul had uncovered more strength for her body to commit to change in attitude and belief, and to decide to consciously commit to being herself. Like Avatar, she began to fight for what is right for her.

What do you want? What are you willing to do to have that? What do you want to commit to?
