Abstract

The literature review is based upon the question: is the use of hypnosis during childbirth associated with beneficial obstetric and psychological outcomes? The paper examines the clinical and research literature addressing the use of hypnosis in childbirth. While anecdotal reports, self-reports, and clinical usage do suggest hypnosis can be beneficial, more rigorous research is required to provide definitive answers to the question.
