Class Curriculum

Hypnobabies is a thorough preparation for childbirth education course, with a Nutritional Program, Pre-natal Exercises, Birth Plan, Optimal Fetal Positioning, Avoiding Back Labor, Anatomy and Physiology, Birthing Choices, Comfort and Safety in Pregnancy, Consumer Issues, Staying Healthy and Low Risk, Unexpected Situations, and much more. Very Comprehensive!

You’ll receive your own Hypnobabies Workbook, mp3s and hypnosis scripts to train the inner mind that contractions in labor will be felt as pressure, tightening, pushing and baby movement sensations. Hypnobabies uses the same kind of hypnosis techniques that people employ when preparing for surgery without any medication, and this is called hypno-anesthesia.

We also teach the Hypnobabies Birth Partners how to fully support our Hypno-moms, and Hypnobabies can be used very easily by single mothers too.

Although not every woman will have a completely pain-free unmedicated birthing experience, our satisfaction rate for creating much easier, safer and more comfortable births is extremely high, which is very gratifying to all of us at Hypnobabies! 70% of Hypnobabies moms feel comfortable through the entire birth, and another 20% feel completely comfortable until crowning. Hypnobabies works for those who practice and choose to use their hypnosis tools all throughout the birth! 

 

The best time to begin a Hypnobabies class is anytime between 24 and 34 weeks pregnant.

Private Class

Private classes are offered to couples for 6 weeks in an agreed-upon location. This individualized and intimate option is $850. A private class is right for you if you:

  • desire schedule flexibility, i.e. different days of the week
  • want more one-on-one attention in class
  • are on bed-rest 
  • desire to take the course in the comfort of your own home

Home Study Course

Purchasing the Home Study Course (affiliate link) offers the same tools as the in-person class with a few modifications. This may be the right fit for a woman or couple who:

  • wants to teach themselves at home
  • is a self-starter and prepared to enjoy daily practices until baby arrives
  • lives too far to travel to an in-person class
  • is on bed rest

Home Study Advantage

I also offer Home Study Advantage Classes, which help our Home Study Course Students learn, understand and experience their Hypnobabies course and techniques. Hands-on hypnosis demonstrations, personalized classes and an individual Hypnobabies Birth Rehearsal allow you to feel much more confident and prepared for your Hypnobabies birth! If you are a Home Study Advantage Student you may take one class 3.5 hour with me in an agreed-upon location for $150. This advantage may be right for you if:

  • you already purchased the Home Study course on Hypnobabies.com
  • you would like more personal instruction and answers to your questions
  • your Birth Partner feels unsure how to support you during the birth
  • you want a live, personal birth rehearsal
