What is Hypnobabies?
Yes! These are babies whose parents choose to easily and naturally prepare for childbirth using the Hypnobabies method of Hypnotic Childbirth, which some might call “hypno-birthing”. Hypnobabies, however, is very different in that we teach real medical hypnosis techniques, creating an automatically peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy, a calm confident Birth Partner, and an easier, more comfortable and sometimes pain-free birthing for our Hypno-Mom.
Hypnobabies is a very successful 6 week, 3&1/4 hours per week, complete childbirth education course that was adapted with permission from Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth Program” rather than using simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery. This allows our Hypno-Moms to enjoy “eyes-open childbirth hypnosis”, easily remaining deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking and changing positions; being 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 labours, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be.
Expectant mothers use our Hypnobabies Workbook, hypnosis audio tracks and scripts to train their inner mind that contractions in labour will be felt only as pressure, tightening, pushing, pulling and normal baby movement sensations. Women are fully in tune with their babies and their bodies during the birthing process, and as aware of everything around them as they’d like to be, easily able to communicate with their support team, and completely in charge of their own birth experience.
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, and Hypnobabies is used very successfully by single mothers too. A willing Birth Partner is a bonus!
Including a very comprehensive childbirth education curriculum also ensures that our Hypno-moms remain deeply committed to their Hypnobabies training, since they need not go anywhere else for childbirth education. Other natural childbirth classes are wonderful, but many teach “pain-coping”, and “pain-management”, which is directly in opposition to our Hypnobabies suggestions that encourage an easier, more comfortable, joyful childbirth.

Did you know?
There are people that have life-threatening allergies to anesthetics who successfully undergo medical and dental surgery with hypnosis as their only anesthesia! If hypnosis can create effective pain elimination for surgeries of all kinds, we know it can work for childbirth, and it does quite well. Your mind is much more powerful than you may realize, and right now you’re using only 10% of it. You can easily tap into that gold mine and you’ll be amazed at what you can do!
