Women Turn to Hypnosis to Get Pregnant

Hypnosis is used for all kinds of things, including quitting smoking, losing weight and even limiting labor pain in the delivery room, but now some women swear the mind-over-matter technique is helping them get pregnant.

Amber Olson is a busy working mother with another baby on the way. Before her second son, Liam, was born, she had three and a half years of infertility and doctors could not find a physical reason.

Olson tried fertility treatments with no success.

"It was really heartbreaking," she said.

Olson then turned to fertility hypnosis, a new complementary therapy that is gaining popularity.

With a soothing voice and positive words, Olson said her hypnotherapist guided her to a relaxing, stress-free world.

"I felt excellent," Olson said.

After only two sessions, Olson was pregnant.
