    Maintaining Your Relationships During Pregnancy Part 3

    in Family

    In the first show and second segment, I discussed the positive and negative strategies couples use to maintain a relationship and stay close during pregnancy.  An example of positive behaviors to keep the relationship close is being open in a relationship.  An example of negative behaviors explained in the second show is using avoidance or deception (which is not always bad) as a way to make sure the relationship is as normal as possible during pregnancy.  In this third segment, I will have a female guest (who just gave birth) explain her experiences with the positive and negative ways she and her husband maintained their relationship during pregnancy and offering tips for future pregnant partners.  Please join me and call in to share your feedback.

    In the first show, we discussed what the positive strategies pregnant couples used to maintain a relationship that makes them satisfied and committed.  In this second show, we’ll focus on the dark side/negative behaviors couples use in trying to maintain the relationship during pregnancy.  As I notice in some couples, partners may use these behaviors as ways to manipulate and control the other person to keep the relationship close.  Join me as I share some of my observations with friends and participate in this discussion as we focus on the dark side of maintaining the relationship during pregnancy.

    Teen Pregnancy

    in Social Networking

    Even though the teen pregnancy rate has declined over the past few decades, the fact of the matter is that the United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate of the Western industrialized world. It is true that the teen pregnancy and birth rate was much higher prior to 1980 (and especially in the 1950s and 1960s), but at the time young women were getting married and having children before the age of 20. Most of the teen pregnancies occurring before 1980 were to married women; now most of today's teen mothers are unwed.

    Pregnancy, Childbirth & Early Motherhood; How Can Hypnosis Help?

    in Health

    In the second of this two part series, Nick & Joanna will talk about how hypnosis can be helpful to decrease stress in pregnancy, prepare and experiecne ease in childbirth, and continue to reduce stress in early motherhood.  Part I focused on how Ayurveda views conception and pregnancy and how this conscious approach can benefit Mother and Baby. Find part I here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/kalyana/2015/08/12/pregnancy-childbirth-early-motherhood-an-ayurvedic-perspective


    This is a very important and tender time for both Mother and Baby and hypnosis is a wonderful tool that can have tremendous benefits not only to the mind and emotions, but also to the physical body. In keeping with an Ayurvedic approach and focus on self care, hypnotherapy definitely has some practical and helpful benefits.  It all boils down to self-care where the most important aspect is consciousness. Even before conception is planned, care should be taken that Mother and Father are in the best of health so that their creation can have the best start; not only being in good health physically but also within their relationship to provide a loving, joyful environment in which the child will learn and grow.


    Learn also how hypnosis can help mom and baby have an easeful time in the birth process that reduces stress and pain so the use of pharmaceuticals can be reduced or eliminated.
