Unique Benefits of Hypnobabies

How is Hypnobabies different from other Childbirth Hypnosis programs?

I am asked many times what is the difference between Hypnobabies and other natural childbirth or birth hypnosis programs, and here I will answer that question by telling you what we do well without disparaging any other particular group.  Other natural childbirth courses have excellent programs and benefits that have helped many women have better, more relaxed births.  I recognize that and celebrate them and what they do every day for birthing women!

Unique to Hypnobabies: We are not a regular birth hypnosis class.  Hypnobabies is very detailed, comprehensive and successful and uses the same kinds of powerful somnambulistic hypnosis scripts used by people who undergo surgery successfully using hypnosis as their only anesthetic.

Unique to Hypnobabies: Long before they ever step foot in their first Hypnobabies class, our Hypno-moms receive their first hypnosis download card with 2 tracks: Your Special Place, which allows them to learn deep relaxation and hypnosis skills for several weeks (or months!) before Hypnobabies Class even starts.

Unique to Hypnobabies: 11 powerful, deep hypnosis audio tracks for use by our Hypno-Mothers as they learn, practice and use their Hypnobabies program, and 1 hypnosis track for our Birth Partners.

Unique to Hypnobabies: 2 separate hypnosis cues for entering hypnosis quickly and deeply, and 7 hypnotic deepening techniques.

Unique to Hypnobabies: 6 somnambulistic hypnosis scripts in booklet form, for use by our Hypno-Couples to work with as a team, which makes a huge difference when training the inner mind for success of any kind.

Unique to Hypnobabies: We provide detailed, comprehensive training for our Birth Partners by providing them their own Birth Partner’s hypnosis track for a calm and confident attitude towards pregnancy and childbirth, and their own 15 page detailed Birth Partner’s Guide booklet for labour.

Unique to Hypnobabies: Hypnobabies can also be very successfully used by Single Mothers since we have specific audio tracks as well as personal help and support for single Hypno-Moms.

Unique to Hypnobabies: Hypnobabies classes also provide excellent and complete childbirth education, ensuring that our Hypnobabies students will not need to take other childbirth education classes where techniques and philosophies are learned which can negate childbirth hypnosis instruction.  Including complete childbirth education is essential for any birth hypnosis program.

Unique to Hypnobabies: Hypnobabies’ “Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis”, which allows each Hypno-mom to walk and talk and move around freely yet remain very relaxed, fully present, aware and in touch with her body and baby and *comfortable while doing so*.

Unique to Hypnobabies: We conduct full Birthing Rehearsals in class # 6 so that our Hypno-moms can experience using Hypnobabies techniques and different labour positions *while in hypnosis in class* and provides the Birth Partner hands-on training of cues and birth assistance.

Unique to Hypnobabies: Our very successful Hypnobabies Birth Visualization,  our “mental birthing rehearsal” is very important to the process of easy and comfortable birthing and is done many times until your Hypno-baby is born, helping program the subconscious mind to produce exactly the kind of birthing you want.

Unique to Hypnobabies: Our wonderful 2-track Birth Guide hypnosis track which keeps our Hypno-mom deeply in hypnosis with constant hypnotic relaxation and anesthesia suggestions for both the first stage of labour and the pushing phase (no “Ring of Fire”) as well as “positive birth team” hypnosis throughout.

Unique to Hypnobabies: We require that our Certified Hypnobabies Instructors have a fully trained background in Childbirth and a minimum of 50 hours of Hypnosis training before becoming accepted into our Hypnobabies Instructor Training Program. We also require a 32 hours of Hypnobabies Instructor Training and have a demanding and rigorous Instructor Certification process.

Unique to Hypnobabies: Our Hypnobabies Instructors are always available for help before, during and after your Hypno-baby is born, and we also have a free Hypnobabies Moms support group manned by certified Hypnobabies Instructors for support and encouragement so that you can enjoy a community where others are using Hypnosis for Childbirth as well.

Unique to Hypnobabies: Hypnobabies includes 18 hours of classroom instruction, and although other childbirth programs may contain some excellent hypno-tools for birthing, none contain the amount of information, in depth hypno-anesthesia, training, practice and support of Hypnobabies.  All elements have been carefully designed to work together and the results are excellent.

Hypnobabies is an empowering choice for any woman wanting Hypnosis for Childbirth that works easily and beautifully!
