Our Hypno-Doula Training Course was created for both doulas and midwives, and is designed to provide birth attendants with the tools which most  effectively support pregnant clients  and their partners who are  using Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis (and other birth-hypnosis programs) to prepare for their  baby’s birth. Our training course is completed online, and includes a  Hypno-Doula Exam which will be e-mailed to you.

We also know that you will be fascinated by your Hypnobabies Doula client’s ability to relax deeply and use  their hypnosis cues and techniques to enjoy their babies’ births.

Marilyn Richard says, ~ “I ordered the Hypno-Doula Training Bundle from  Hypnobabies and was so pleased that it contains such excellent resources for me  to lend out to my doula clients, and also help my hypno-clients with their  hypno-births. My clients who do Hypnobabies have the best,  most calm and easy births I’ve ever seen. When you said that having my doula  clients do Hypnobabies would make my job much easier, you meant it! Thanks so much!”
