Hypno...babies??? Yes! These are babies whose parents choose to easily and naturally prepare for childbirth using the Hypnobabies method of Hypnotic Childbirth, which teaches real medical hypnosis techniques, creating an automatically peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy, a calm confident Birth Partner, and an easier, fearless and possibly pain-free birthing for our Hypno-Student.

Hypnobabies is a very successful 6 week complete childbirth education course using Gerald Kein's Painless Childbirth techniques instead of simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery. This allows the birthing person to enjoy “Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis”, easily remaining deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking changing positions; being as mobile as they would like to be during childbirth. We are famous for much shorter, easier and more comfortable labours, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be.

You’ll use your Hypnobabies Workbook, CDs and hypnosis scripts to train your inner mind that contractions in labour will be felt only as pressure, tightening, pushing, pulling and normal baby movement sensations. You’ll be fully in tune with your baby during the birthing process, and as aware as you’d like to be, easily able to communicate and be in charge of your own birth experience

Hypnobabies uses the same kind of hypnosis techniques that people employ when preparing for surgery without any medication, which is called hypno-anesthesia. Our classes also teach Hypnobabies Birth Partners how to fully support their partner, although Hypnobabies can also be used very successfully by single parents

Including a very comprehensive childbirth education curriculum also ensures that they can remain deeply committed to their Hypnobabies training, since they need not go anywhere else for childbirth education.

Although not every person will have a completely pain-free unmedicated birthing experience, many of our students do and our satisfaction rate is excellent, which is very gratifying!

Why choose a natural, easier birth using Hypnobabies?

The benefits are many:

  • Most of our students use fewer drugs or no drugs, which means less risk of side effects for you and your baby, due to elimination of the Fear/Tension/Pain Syndrome, and using post-hypnotic suggestions.
  • Most students have shorter labours since there is less resistance of the birthing muscles when pain and fear are minimized or eliminated.
  • Students generally have much more energy throughout first and second stage, due to your total relaxation throughout the birthing process.
  • The birthing environment is much more calm and peaceful when you, the natural childbirth person are 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 labour.
  • There are fewer interventions for failure to progress and therefore fewer complications during labour for our mothers and babies.
  • The deep relaxation in Hypnobabies® sessions has also helped many a nervous birth partner to enjoy their partner's pregnancy and childbirth, and the skills that the Hypno-couple learns for relaxation and hypnosis will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

As a Hypno-Student, you are easily "deprogrammed" from the usual negativity of childbirth stories and scenarios you may have heard or read, by way of training in Hypnobabies classes and audio CDs which have positive messages and hypnotic suggestions. This automatically allows you to have a much more positive attitude and confidence in birthing. It is truly a gift that you are giving yourself, an amazingly easy way to enjoy your pregnancy more and actually look forward to your baby's birth!

70-75% of Hypnobabies® students's report that they experience very comfortable births, feeling mostly pressure, tightening or mild cramping sensations (instead of pain and discomfort).
