Virtual reality in the maternity unit is a reality
The maternity unit at Issoire Hospital has reinvented itself during the COVID pandemic by investing in the HypnoVR solution.
The maternity unit offers pregnant women personalised support (midwives trained in acupuncture) and other innovations including the use of HypnoVR.
Medical hypnosis by virtual reality is used at the maternity unit to:
Reduce pre-operative anxiety
Reduce pain during obstetric procedures, which normally require a local or general anaesthetic
Reduce pain during the start of labour
This virtual reality helmet allows us to reduce pre-operative anxiety, reduce pain during the d start of labour and in the minor obstetric procedures, which normally require local, or even general anaesthesia.
