Hypnobirthing has a lot of theories that it describes. The main one discusses the idea that pain is caused by fear and that by learning to relax, the amount of pain felt will be decreased. Find a friend, neighbor, or someone online who has used this method and interview them. Write a paper on the theory involved and the experiences of the person you interviewed. Include these elements:

1. Focus the interview on how the hypnobirthing theory impacted their birth experience.

2. Find out if what they experienced either verified or falsified the theory.

3. Attach a birth care plan, as discussed in this course, that would have been used for this person’s birth.

4. Include these sections in your birth care plan: assessment, needs identification, and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs (physiologic, safety, social, esteem).
