What if you could have a gentle, peaceful and joyful natural birth?
What if you could eliminate fears you have about labor and birth?
What if your labor was comfortable and manageable, and decreased or eliminated the need for pain medication?
It’s possible with Hypnobabies!
Hypnobabies is a complete childbirth education program that combines the best information for having a safe pregnancy and birth with instruction in hypnosis for childbirth. Based on Gerald Kein’s Painless Childbirth program, you can learn simple self-hypnosis techniques that are used in medical settings when patients cannot use anesthesia for procedures or surgery.
This six-week, 18-hour course is thorough and provides students with weekly hypnosis practice that helps prepare couples and single moms for their final exam, which is, of course, childbirth! The techniques students learn will benefit them wherever they have their baby –at the hospital, a birth center or at home.
Many Hypnobabies students who have taken this course have experienced one or more of the following results:
•The use of fewer drugs or no drugs, which means less risk of side effects for mothers and babies.
•Shorter labors, because mothers are more relaxed when pain and fear are minimized or eliminated.
•A calmer birth environment because of calmer, more relaxed mothers.
•Fewer medical interventions are necessary because of the wonderful progress moms are able to make on their own during labor.
•Birth partners are more relaxed because of the knowledge they’ve gained and from the hypnosis they’ve helped mothers with.
•Students learn how to re-train their minds and replace negative messages they’ve learned over time about labor and birth with positive messages. This helps mothers to be calm and confident during labor and birth.
•Fewer drugs and medical interventions = faster recovery and healthier mothers and babies
•A deeper connection with baby, partner and self.
Here is what some Hypnobabies students have shared about their birth experiences:
"I am so grateful for having had the opportunity to use self hypnosis for Mauro's birth. Not only did it allow me to have the kind of birth I wanted for him and for me, but it also taught me the incredible power of the mind and the value of deep relaxation. I hope to be able to continue to use those lessons throughout the rest of my life." – Mauro’s mom
“ I could hear everyone in the room, I was aware of what was going on, I could change positions, yet I was so concentrated on opening my body during contractions. In between contractions, even at 8 cm and with the waves coming on fast, I actually felt myself nod off to sleep!" – Victor’s mom
