Data from exactly one thousand childbirths in the Soviet Union. 641 of the women had “prophylactic preparation” in the form of preventative psychological education suggestion, of whom 25% reported complete absence of pain in childbirth. This sort of rational “psycho-education” took place in groups of 30-35 women over the space of up to six sessions.

Only 113 women received full hypnotherapy, of whom an impressive 84% reported completely painless childbirth.
