Hypnobabies is a complete childbirth education class that is known for helping women create shorter, easier, and more comfortable births. The classes meet once a week for six weeks and cover topics like diet and nutrition, interventions and alternatives, the physiology of birth, newborn care, and much more. Students also learn and practice hypnosis techniques that train their inner mind to feel contractions as sensations of pressure or tightening rather than discomfort. 

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 teaches parents to advocate for themselves.

The next session will run in early 2017 !

What are the benefits of Hypnobabies?

  • Most Hypnobabies moms use fewer drugs or no drugs, which means less risk of side effects for them or their babies. This is due to elimination of the Fear/Tension/Pain Syndrome, and using post-hypnotic suggestions.
  • Most Hypnobabies mothers have shorter labors since there is less resistance of the birthing muscles when pain and fear are minimized or eliminated.
  • Hypno-Moms generally have much more energy throughout first and second stage, due to them beingprofoundly relaxed throughout the birthing process.
  • The birthing environment is much more calm and peaceful when the natural childbirth mother is comfortable, relaxed and confident.
  • Breech and posterior babies can be turned using hypnosis. 
  • Blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature can be lowered and nausea, back and hip pain eliminated with hypnosis during pregnancy and birth.
  • There are fewer interventions for failure to progress and therefore fewer complications during labor for our mothers and babies.
  • The deep relaxation enjoyed during Hypnobabies sessions has also helped many a nervous birth partner to enjoy their partner’s pregnancy and childbirth. The relaxation and hypnosis skills that Hypnobabies students learn will benefit them for the rest of their lives.  Read what expectant fathers and other birth partners are saying about supporting mom through birth using Hypnobabies.
  • Hypnobabies moms are easily “deprogrammed” from the usual negativity of childbirth stories and scenarios they may have heard or read. Hypnosis training in Hypnobabies classes and audio tracks which have positive messages and hypnotic suggestions help to eliminate such fears.
  • Doing Hypnobabies automatically allows you to have a much more positive attitude and confidence about birthing.
  • It is truly a gift that you are giving yourself, an amazingly easy way to enjoy your pregnancy and being able to look forward to your baby’s comfortable birth
