What is Hypnobabies?

"Have you ever wondered what is Hypnobabies? Hypnobabies is a very successful 6 week, 3-hours per week,complete childbirth education course that was adapted with permission from Master Hypnotherapist Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth Program” techniques rather than using 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 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 labors, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be."

How is Hypnobabies Different than "Hypnobirthing"?

 If you are considering using Hypnosis for a comfortable birthing experience there are two main programs to consider, Hypnobirthing and Hypnobabies.  Many moms and providers use the terms interchangeably but Hypnobabies, however, is very different than Hypnobirthing in that with Hypnobabies they teach REAL medical hypnosis techniques, creating an automatically peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy, a calm confident birth partner, and an easier, much more comfortable natural birthing experience for our Hypno-Mom. Plus, they are a COMPLETE childbirth education program. You wil learn anything you would at a regular childbirth class plus the techniques to use medical grade hypnosis for a easier and more comfortable birthing experience. 

A message from our Hypno-doula, Andrea. 

"I'm often asked, ' What makes a Hypno-doula different from any other doula?' 

To become a Hynpobabies Hypno-doula,  you must take a VERY thorough training course on how to support families using Hypnobabies. There are major differences between a Hypnobabies birth and non-Hypnobabies birth.

One main factor is the scripts and language used during labor and birth. Hypnobabies changes the "normal" birth language to more positive language. For example; your "labor" becomes your "birthing time"; "what's your pain scale?" becomes "how comfortable are you?"; and "contractions" become "birthing" or "pressure waves".  The reason for the change on a simple level comes from the mindset that your birth does NOT have to be painful. Birthing your baby can be done comfortably and you can truly enjoy each of the waves as the come.

I know it may sound too good to be true. I know I was even somewhat skepitcal before witnessing my first Hypnobabies client give birth. She was so happy and joyful when she was 8-9 cm dilated. I was sold. I was able to support her and her husband by making sure they were fed and had plenty of fluids, making sure she was listening to the correct mp3 tracks for the program. I was a support person so dad could eat some dinner, plus reading mom the correct Hypnobabies scripts when she didn't desire to have her headphones in, or showing dad which ones to read to her. I made sure the medical team waited to talk to her and made sure she was ready to open her eyes to speak with them. There are so many other things a hypnodoula can do  to supporta family in their Hypnobabies birth.

I truly beleive in and enjoy the Hypnobabies Childbirth Program. If you are interested in using this program and having support from a trained Hypnodoula during your birthing time I would love to chat with you!"
