Our Hypnobabies Home Study Course for Expectant Mothers is a complete childbirth education course which teaches you powerful, medical-grade somnambulistic self-hypnosis for an easier, more comfortable birthing experience. The Hypnobabies Course Outline below shows you the detailed, comprehensive curriculum that our students benefit from, therefore there is never a need to attend any other kind of childbirth class or course along with Hypnobabies (that can also be detrimental to having an excellent, easier Hypnobabies birth so it is *not* recommended – more info here). Hypnobabies contains everything you need to know about enjoying an easier pregnancy, the stages of birthing, preparing for childbirth, comfort techniques and birthing positions of *all* kinds, and of course, the best birth hypnosis techniques on the planet!
