Hypnosis has been used for centuries to treat mental illnesses including pain during surgery. It wasn't until the 1950s that hypnotherapists began promoting its use to reduce labor and delivery.
In 1989, hypnotherapist Marie Mongan revealed a program called HypnoBirthing, which introduced that anxiety and fear can increase sensitivity to pain and that best hypnobirthing techniques videos such as guided imagery, meditation, hypnosis, and deep breathing can put you in a state of deep relaxation ere and during labor, thereby reducing your fear

Once women are freed from this fear, thinking will continue, their bodies will relax, and labor will be less painful.
To this end, women in HypnoBirthing classes learn to think differently about aspects of work. The contractions become "uterine waves" and the pressure becomes "born breathing." By turning this process into a more comfortable and familiar state, women can experience it differently – and less painful.
Women also learn to imagine scenarios that will help them relax and reduce pain. One such technique is known as the "silver glove technique", in which women imagine wearing silver gloves that make their hands tingle and relax.
Then visualize this feeling and run along the arm. You can also spread a tingling sensation by imagining your hand touching another part of your body.
