Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis

Medical-Grade Hypnosis for Childbirth

Hypnobabies uses therapeutic, medical-grade hypnosis techniques so that our birthing students/mothers experience fewer complications, generally shorter labors, and easier births. Most of them also have much more energy while they give birth, and typically they have an easier postpartum period.

The Unique Benefits of Hypnobabies®:

  • Complete childbirth education and preparation for a natural birth which covers – Nutrition, Exercise, Staying Healthy and Low Risk, Stages of Birthing, Doulas, Comfort in Pregnancy, Birth Plans, Postpartum and Baby Care and much more.

  • With the use of hypnosis techniques, the birthing environment is much calmer and more peaceful for everyone involved, including medical staff, since our Hypnobabies students are more comfortable and confident.

  • Many Hypno-babies are born gently without drugs in their systems, so they are more alert and able to breastfeed immediately after they are born.

  • Breech and posterior babies can sometimes be turned using hypnosis!

  • Often times, blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature can be lowered and nausea, back and hip pain eliminated with hypnosis during pregnancy and birthing.

  • There are fewer interventions for failure to progress, and therefore fewer fetal and maternal complications during birthing.

 

Class Details

Upcoming Classes & Class Options

Self-hypnosis teaches us to relax our minds and bodies completely, while creating soothing endorphins that make us feel great – naturally!  That amazingly deep relaxation helps remove tension that often leads to unnecessary pain during birth, as well as unnecessary medical interventions.  Hypnosis allows us to reach into our inner minds and literally re-program ourselves to view childbirth as a more comfortable, blissful experience.

Class Schedule

Hypnobabies Childbirth Education is a very successful 6-week complete childbirth education course. Classes are taught in a group setting weekly for 3 hours. Hypnobabies® teaches students how to enjoy “eyes-open childbirth hypnosis” using real, medical-grade somnambulistic hypnosis techniques. This creates an automatically peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy, a calm and confident Birth Partner, and an easier, much more comfortable natural birthing for pregnant students.
