So what is Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis?


Hypnobabies is a successful 6 week, 21 hour, complete childbirth education course that was adapted with permission from Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth Program.”  This allows our Hypno-Moms to enjoy Eyes-Open Childbirth Hypnosis rather than using simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery.  They easily remain 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 births.


Hypnobabies uses the same medical hypnosis techniques that people employ when preparing for surgery without any drugs, which is called hypno-anesthesia.  With the use of real, medical-grade hypnosis and the type of hypnotic compounding that our Hypnobabies students learn and practice, normal birthing sensations can easily be transformed into pleasurable ones. Our Hypno-moms are also fully in tune with their babies during the birthing process, and as aware of everything around them as they would like to be, easily able to communicate with their support team, and completely in charge of their own birth experience.


Birth partners also benefit from Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis.  The course teaches them how to best support the Hypno-Mom and create a calming birth environment.  We actively involve the birth partners in the class, making sure they also feel supported as they welcome this new baby into the world with their own audio track and guidebook.  We want birth partners to not only be excited to fulfill their role in preparing for their baby's birth, but to also feel calm and confident toward pregnancy and birth.


So what are some of the benefits of participating in Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis classes?


  • The Hypnobabies program teaches all our mothers techniques to naturally reduce, or eliminate any pregnancy discomforts, and to give birth comfortably while remaining awake and mobile, and in control using eyes-open childbirth hypnosis.

  • Hypnobabies gives mothers and their birth partners the information they need about consumer issues surrounding their choices in childbirth, so that they can determine their own birth preferences.

  • Hypnobabies newborns are remarkably more calm and alert after birth, and our Hypnobabies moms are more comfortable and able to bond easily with their babies and breastfeed immediately after birth.

  • Hypnobabies promotes respectful informed dialog between our expectant parents and their care-providers; their OB/GYNs, midwives, doctors, nurses, doulas, etc.

  • Hypno-couples are deprogrammed from the usual negativity of childbirth stories that they've heard and birth scenarios they’ve seen in the media, through Hypnobabies "Fear Clearing" hypnosis sessions.

  • Most hypno-mothers have shorter labors since there is less opposition of the vertical and horizontal uterine muscles when pain and fear are eliminated, and the mother experiences deep hypnosis, physical comfort and profound relaxation instead.

  • The Hypnobabies mother generally has more energy during first and second stage, because she's being continuously guided into deep hypnosis.

  • The birthing environment is much more calm and peaceful for everyone involved when the natural childbirth mother is comfortable and confident.

  • Breech and posterior babies can be turned using hypnosis more than 80% of the time.

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