Self-Study VS Group Class

You really want to do Hypnobabies but a group class doesn’t work for you or the class you would like is full?  Hypnobabies offers a Self-Study option for you to work through on your own.  I am often asked what the differences are between the Home-Study course and my group classes.  I’ve outlined those differences here:

 

Group Class

Self-Study

Duration  6 weeks  5 weeks
Benefits
  • Your questions answered by an instructor (during class and in between classes) who is is knowledgeable about childbirth and trained in hypnosis
  • More detailed information on every subject

  • An instructor to help motivate you and to be accountable to from week to week
  • Connect with other mothers and couples and build new friendships
  • Enjoy the group class setting and all the fun that goes along with it
  • A Birth Rehearsal in Class # 6, which is invaluable for helping each Hypno-Mom fully understand and experience their Hypnobabies techniques in a simulated birthing scenario; complete with Birth Balls, changing positions, walking etc. The Birth Rehearsal is also great practice for the Birth Partner to use his deepening cues and other techniques that help the mom so wonderfully during labour. This helps build the confidence level of Mom and the Birth Partner tremendously.

PLEASE NOTE: The Hypnobabies Home-Study Course for Expectant Mothers is a 5 week childbirth hypnosis course.  This means that it takes 5 weeks to *learn* the deep hypnosis techniques that will enable you to have a much easier and more comfortable birthing, and then you will need time to *practice them* as well for several weeks.  For the most benefit, it is actually optimum for you to have at least 2 months or more time to complete your Hypnobabies course and to practice your hypnosis cues and techniques.  Please order by (at least) 6 or 7 months of pregnancy to allow for enough time to complete and practice your childbirth hypnosis course materials and techniques.

Home Study Advantage: 
If you have chosen to take the Hypnobabies Home Study Course, I offer a special private class in your home to better prepare you for your Hypnobabies birth.  The purpose of this class is to help you and your partner pull all of your Hypnobabies techniques and cues together and gain confidence in how to use all of them.  This includes a birth rehearsal so you can see your hypnosis skills in action in labour/birth positions (fantastic for visualizing your birth and helping you and your birth partner know how to best work together in your birthing time).  We’ll also review the Birth Partner’s Guide together so your partner is very prepared to assist you on the big day.  We’ll watch a few very inspiring Hypnobabies birth videos too.  If you have a doula it would be very beneficial for her to attend this class as well.
