Hypnobirths involve the use of self-hypnosis, imagery, and breathing techniques to conquer labor and delivery. Introduced by Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, the method places mind over matter, believing that fear leads to tension and causes pain. In Hypnobirths, babies are not delivered, but "birthed" and the breathing exercises focus on long, slow breaths rather than the short puffs associated with the Lamaze method.
