Sophrology in the Perinatal Period

Sophrology and birth preparation - The Sophrology Academy

A number of research studies have been conducted on the use of Sophrology in the perinatal period, including an observational study that suggests that those who chose antenatal Sophrology for birth preparation developed a closer relationship with their infants. The value of Sophrology to ease the psycho-emotional impact of infertility has been reported, and a further study showed a statistically significant reduction in a perinatal stress marker amongst women who had antenatal Sophrology.

The Obstetrics and Gynaecology Forum published this study which found Sophrology to be an effective and simple method to reduce the perinatal stress as measured by cortisol levels.
