What is Hypnobabies?
Hypnobabies is a 6-week, 21-hour complete childbirth education and medical hypnosis course. Our students learn the fundamentals of labor and birth, as well as how to use real medical hypnosis techniques to create a peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy, a calm confident Birth Partner, and an easier, much more comfortable natural birth.
The Hypnobabies method of Hypnotic Childbirth was adapted with permission from Master Hypnotherapist Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth Program” techniques. It goes beyond using simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery to allow our Hypno-Moms to enjoy “eyes-open childbirth hypnosis.” This means that our Hypno-Moms can easily remain deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking and changing positions, which allows them to be as mobile as they would like to be during childbirth. Hypnobabies is well-known for helping women to create much shorter, easier and more comfortable labors, and making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be.
Expectant mothers use our Hypnobabies Workbook, audio tracks, and hypnosis scripts to re-train their subconscious minds, so that contractions in labor will be perceived as pressure or a squeezing-type sensations, and/or pushing, pulling and normal baby movement sensations. With the use of real, medical-grade hypnosis and the type of hypnotic compounding that our Hypnobabies students learn, practice, and use during labor, normal birthing sensations can easily be transformed into pleasurable ones. Our Hypno-moms are fully in tune with their babies during the birthing process. They are completely in charge of their own birth experience. They are as aware of everything around them as they’d like to be, and they can easily communicate with their support team.
Hypnobabies uses the same medical hypnosis techniques that people employ when preparing for surgery without any drugs, which is called Hypno-anesthesia. Our classes also teach Hypnobabies Birth Partners how to fully support the Hypno-Moms. However, rest assured, Hypnobabies can also be used very successfully by single mothers.
