Jessica Alba Will Give Birth Under Hypnosis! Would You?

The actress’ husband Cash Warren will talk her into a trance as she goes into labor. Weird or cool?

The process is called Hypnobirthing and it is fast becoming a trend among new moms who want to try a drug-free delivery. Would you try it?

“It’s basically my husband takes me through sort of a meditation,” Jessica, 30, tells Ellen DeGeneres on her show today, May 20. “So he’s, like, saying, ‘You’re relaxed and you’re floating on clouds while you’re going through labor and your contractions.'”

“He just sort of does a guided mediation. I’m just concentrating on breathing and staying relaxed because it’s when you get tense that makes the whole labor worse and more painful.”

Jessica‘s no novice — she actually gave birth to three-year-old daughter Honor under hypnosis!

“I actually did this with Honor… It is kind of a way to relax and know that the contraction will only last for so long,” she explains. “You just need to concentrate on the breathing and just the sound of his voice… Normally I want to strangle him but at that moment it’s sort of calming and wonderful.”

Would you try Hypnobirthing, HollyMoms?
