Hypnobabies® – Natural Childbirth at its best!
Hypnobabies (now updated, Edition 7) is a very successful 6 week, 3-hours per week, complete childbirth education course that was adapted with permission from Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth Program” techniques rather than using simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery like other hypno-birthing programs. This allows our Hypnobabies Students 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 to create much shorter, easier and more comfortable labors, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be. Yes, really! Watch this video of a Hypnobabies mom who learned, practiced and used her Hypnobabies techniques well, having a birthing wave (contraction) at 7 cm, completely comfortable.
***Check with your Insurance Carrier – some companies will cover the cost of childbirth classes. The insurance CPT code for childbirth classes is: S9436. You may also need this: Diagnosis code Z32.2, which is for childbirth education. Some Hypno-families have used their Flexible Spending Accounts for their Hypnobabies classes too, so make sure and check out yours!***

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Hypnobabies Instructors are teaching their classes remotely, via Zoom or Skype!
Expectant students use our Hypnobabies Workbook, hypnosis audio tracks and hypnosis scripts to train their inner mind that contractions in labor will be felt mostly as pressure, tightening, pushing, pulling and normal baby movement sensations. Hypnobabies students are fully in tune with their babies during the birthing process, and as aware of everything around them as they’d like to be, easily able to communicate with their support team, and completely in charge of their own birth experience. It’s amazing to watch Camille’s Hypnobabies testimonial video – she shows us her experience of going shopping while being 4 cm, and video shows her experiencing 2 pressure waves at 8 cm with total comfort (the last clip shows the powerful pressure wave on the monitor). Yes, Hypnobabies works when learned, practiced and used as directed in our written materials. And … this is her testimonial video where she and her (previously skeptical) husband share their experience of using Hypnobabies!
Hypnobabies uses the same medical hypnosis techniques that people employ when preparing for surgery without any drugs, which is called hypno-anesthesia. Our classes also teach Hypnobabies Birth Partners how to fully support their partners, and Hypnobabies is also used very successfully by single mothers. A willing Birth Partner is a bonus! This video shows a Hypnobabies mom in her pushing stage, and is the most gentle, easy birthing ever!
Including a very comprehensive childbirth education curriculum also ensures that our Hypnobabies students 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 our Hypnobabies suggestions that encourage an easier, more comfortable, joyful childbirth. For more information, please see our Frequently Asked Questions Page, and watch our video, “What’s it like to take a Hypnobabies Class?“
Although not everyone will have a completely pain-free, unmedicated birthing experience, many of our Hypnobabies students do, and the rate of “completely comfortable births” reported is about 70%, far above any other childbirth method, which is very gratifying to all of us at Hypnobabies! In this video our Hypno-mom has several pressure waves and uses her Hypnobabies beautifully to remain calm, relaxed and hypno-comfortable!
Important information: Hypnosis is generally not recommended for those with certain mental disorders and/or some kinds of seizures. If you have any of these, please consult with a mental health professional and/or a medical professional to see if hypnosis would be a good and safe option for *you* before attending a Hypnobabies Class series or using any kind of hypnosis.
Please note and remember: Hypnobabies *hypnosis* tracks cannot be listened to while driving, walking, running, operating machinery, cooking dinner, showering, doing yoga or doing anything else that requires your full concentration since it is NOT safe. These tracks have hypnotic inductions and deepening suggestions on them and on each one you are reminded in the introduction that is on every hypnosis track that you must listen to them ONLY when you are sitting down in a *fully supported position* where you can relax all muscles of your body – in a cushy chair, or lying down, or on a birth ball/leaning over a supporting bed or sofa, etc. YOU MUST listen to your Hypnobabies hypnosis tracks *safely*, as directed, when you are practicing; we care about you!
