It looks like Kate has found a way to ease the discomfort of morning sickness with the help of hypnotherapy. Read on for all the details and to see what our expert has to say!
Kate Middleton Still Suffering From Morning Sickness
Jessica Kay, who says she’s friends with Kate, tells Australia’s New Idea Magazine, “Kate still looks at food and feels nauseous. She’s been plagued with that feeling you have when you’ve had food poisoning and your stomach’s shrunk. She finds it very hard to eat a full meal and gets full very quickly.”
“The hypnotherapy is taking away any negative thoughts connected with food from the morning sickness, and replacing them with cravings for healthy, nutritious food,” explains Jessica.
According to her pal, Kate’s snacks include avocados, berries, oatmeal and broccoli.
As HollyBaby.com previously reported, Kate was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum (acute morning sickness), back in December when she was taken to King Edward VII Hospital in London. The Duchess was treated with intravenous fluids to increase her electrolytes and to get hydrated.
The Benefits Of Hypnotherapy
Hypotherapist Charles Whobrey, who runs My Sunny Mind in Los Angeles, tells HollyBaby.com EXCLUSIVELY, “More and more women are seeking hypnotherapy during their pregnancy to help with a wide range of health concerns, including morning sickness which can be quite debilitating. After weight loss and smoking cessation, the use of hypnotherapy for pregnant women has drastically increased over the past couple of years.”
“We have seen so many benefits for pregnant women such as lower levels of stress and anxiety, easier deliveries, faster recovery rates, and just an overall happier pregnancy,” says Charles. “Even stressed out, first-time dads can benefit from hypnotherapy!”
When asked if Kate should continue with hypnotherapy after her morning sickness subsides, Charles tells HollyBaby.com, “Yes, I would highly recommend that Kate continue with hypnotherapy. Kate is in the public eye, so she probably experiences higher levels of anxiety in the first place. Everyone can benefit from positive visualizations of health and wellness, and re-creating beliefs that no longer serve you.
Should The Duchess Have A Water Birth?
Now that Kate is undergoing hypnotherapy, maybe she will decided to have a water birth. We are happy to see that Kate is getting the help she needs, and we can’t wait to meet the royal baby. HollyMoms, are YOU excited to meet the royal baby?
