This brief article by Deborah Hillairet is loaded with possibilities for easing the birth experience. This includes potentials for (1) inducing birth without drugs, (2) reducing pain and (3) breastfeeding.

Last Thursday I had a beautiful experience with a client and friend at the birth of her daughter. She was a week overdue but her partner was working very far away. She asked him to come home and when he arrived she phoned and asked me if we could do EFT on the next Saturday as she wanted to try inducing the birth naturally.

As her partner was back I suggested that she start tapping straight away that "daddy was home that she was loved and that she could come out now, all was safe and it was time to come out" ..... "mummy and daddy love you very much and are all waiting to meet you".

She also tapped to release her attachment to having a Gemini baby. Immediately she felt the plug go (her words). She phoned me at 6.00am and I rushed over...she tapped that her "cervix was dilating." By the time I got there the contractions were every 5 mins.

I tapped for the pain. When the delivery started I tapped "that the pain was a wave of energy helping to get the baby out and to ride the energy", followed by "this pain, this energy, this wave of energy." We continued in this fashion and, as soon as she started to push, her partner took over tapping on her head for "this pain".

Seconds later a beautiful 7lb 14oz baby girl was in the world. It was the most calm beautiful experience without any intervention or drugs. I think she was incredible to do it this way and in her own home. The placenta took a little time coming and the midwife said that it was a shame that the mother was getting so distressed trying to latch baby to the breast as this would help the delivery of the afterbirth.

I looked at the mother and asked if she believed she could breastfeed. She said no. So we did a round of tapping for "even though I don't believe I can breastfeed...etc". She again tried, baby latched on and the after birth was delivered. She is now very successfully breast feeding. Both mother and daughter are doing well. I feel very privileged to have witnessed this wonderful event. After 2 years of using EFT as my main therapy I am still amazed daily by what it can do.

Love light and laughter, Deborah Hillairet.
