The baby’s mother, Wang Yujuan, 29, said: “I clearly felt that my body was more clumsy than when I had been pregnant with my daughter. My belly was bigger than it was then.”
A study conducted last year suggested that a baby’s birth weight is heavily determined by both genetics, and the weight of the mother during pregnancy. They found that the more weight the mother put on during pregnancy, the heavier the baby.
Hypnotherapy can be used by mothers to reduce stress and anxiety during pregnancy, reduce the pain and length of labour, and speed up the recovery process after birth.
Some studies have shown that pregnant mothers who undergo hypnotherapy are more likely to give birth to relaxed, well-behaved babies.
