Conference paper


Due to many variables, including the subjective nature of the phenomena being observed and the variety of styles of measurement, comparison between studies of childbirth is difficult. Where hypnosis has been used adjunctively with other methods of preparation, hypnosis seems as effective, or more effective, in achieving the desired results of reduced drug therapy and a more enjoyable experience (Stone and Burrows 1980).
