“I began researching epidurals and other medical interventions in an effort to calm my fears, but I discovered there were far more potential risks involved than I had realized,” she tells me. “I changed my approach to researching childbirth techniques that could help me minimize discomfort and my need for medical interventions.”
Hypnobabies in the News
The “eyes-open hypnosis” approach allows expectant mothers to move around, communicate and change birthing positions while in hypnosis, Anthofer said. http://carrollspaper.com/Content/Local-News-Archive/Local-News/Article/-Hypnobabies-class-offered-for-expectant-mothers/1/1/22511
Hypnobabies has also been featured in many other places in the pregnancy and birthing community; here are a few of them:
“Several “coincidences” occurred four years ago that led to Readyville’s Amanda Johnson having two young sons, giving birth to them using self-hypnosis instead of anesthesia, and teaching workshops on the Hypnobabies technique for other expectant mothers.” http://www.murfreesboropost.com/remarkable-rutherford-woman-having-babies-the-easy-way-without-anesthesia-cms-4437
“Hypnobabies uses self-hypnosis, similar to what people use for medical hypno-anesthesia for people who cannot use pain medication,” said Baker, who began teaching Hypnobabies classes in 2014 after using its techniques to have her second child. “So this is not just guided imagery or visualization.”
After using Hypnobabies techniques to labor in relaxed fashion at home for much of the day, Buckley recalled how her calm demeanor baffled professionals who checked her into the hospital. Her third son was born half an hour later, and Buckley described the whole experience as amazing.
I Hypnotized Myself During Labor, and It Was the Best Thing I’ve Ever Done By Hypno-mom Caitlyn Doenges
A few moments before sunrise, I said, “Something’s coming out,” and a few pushes later, my little man was in my arms. We went home the next morning and I was out trying our new double stroller 48 hours after giving birth. To me, this was unheard of — I didn’t comfortably leave the house for weeks after my first baby. It was an awesome experience, one that could actually make me desire to do it again. I had done hypnosis on myself. I remember calling my friend who used Hypnobabies a badass, and after that amazing early morning in July, I feel like one too.

So excited to see this great article with videos & photos! We love that more & more expectant moms are having easier, more comfortable birth.
Hypnobabies is a complete childbirth education course that teaches much more than deep relaxation and breathing for childbirth. “We teach somnambulistic, medical-grade hypnosis techniques that help lessen and sometimes eliminate discomfort from birthing sensations,” Kerry said.”
So exciting to see another beautiful article written about Hypnobabies!
