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 our Hypno-Moms 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 labors, 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 labor 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 our Hypnobabies® Birth Partners how to fully support our Hypno-Moms, although Hypnobabies® can also be used very successfully by single mothers.
Including a very comprehensive childbirth education curriculum also ensures that our Hypno-moms remain deeply committed to their Hypnobabies® training, since they need not go anywhere else for childbirth education. Other natural childbirth classes are wonderful but many teach “pain-coping” and “pain-management”, which is directly in opposition to Hypnobabies® “pain-elimination” techniques.

Although not every woman will have a completely pain-free unmedicated birthing experience, many of our Hypno-Moms do and our satisfaction rate is excellent, which is very gratifying! Please see our Course Outline for more information.
