Childbirth Education Instructor Training Info

Hypnobabies students in class
I have a very passionate dream for all families…

A dream that mothers/birthing people will feel confident to choose physiological, intuitive childbirth; that babies will be born in a safer way, without medication in their systems, easily able to breathe, nurse and search their parent’s eyes with wonder and love; and that babies will never endure hours of fright and stress hearing their mothers/parents suffer in childbirth before they slide out into our world.

My dream becomes more of a reality every day as more Hypnobabies students use the amazing power of their minds and hearts to help them achieve their easier and more comfortable, powerful birthing. They journey within, where all the answers lie, bond with their precious babies long before birth, and grow in strength, confidence and trust in nature’s most perfect plan:
We have always known how to give birth. We simply remind our students of this innate power and ability, and teach them how to do it more easily and comfortably, and it is the best job in the world!
Our Hypnobabies program has become so successful at creating joyful natural births that childbirth educators, doulas and our own experienced Hypno-moms/students are registering to become Hypnobabies Instructors so that they can bring Hypnobabies to their own communities. Read/watch what our wonderful Hypnobabies Instructors have to say about becoming trained and certified by Hypnobabies, and teaching classes to pregnant students/couples  so they can have *much* easier births! If you share our passion and love for working with expectant couples, and want to provide them with an excellent and very effective childbirth hypnosis program, please read the information below and on the other Instructor training pages on this site.
Unlike other childbirth hypnosis programs, Hypnobabies is a complete preparation for childbirth education course, and cannot be taught along with another childbirth or hypnobirthing program, used to “supplement” one, or “added to” hypnotherapy sessions. Hypnobabies is always taught in 6, 3-hour classes using our extremely comprehensive Hypnobabies materials. The results are amazing!
Join us if you share my dream. ~ Kerry Tuschhoff, Founder/Director of Hypnobabies

Hypnobabies Instructor Training Prerequisites:
1) Zoom Interview: Each qualified applicant will be contacted by e-mail to schedule a Zoom interview with our Instructor Liaison. Zoom interviews are conducted to see if Hypnobabies is a good fit for *you* before being accepted into our program. 
2) Required Reading and Reviews: There is a Required Reading list of  2 items (one online course and one book), both provided to you for *free* to you after your full Training Registration is completed. These need to be completed before your Hypnobabies Instructor Training begins, including a one-page review for each item.
3) 50 hours of basic Hypnosis Training (licensing/certification is *not* required): You can fulfill this requirement one of two ways:

A) Our free Hypnobabies Self-Study Introduction to Hypnosis Course: All applicants who have not completed 50 hours of basic hypnosis training from a reputable school of hypnosis (see below) by the time of their Zoom Interview will be required to take our Hypnobabies Self-Study Introduction to Hypnosis Course: free with your paid Registration Deposit, for those who are required to take it.  This is ordered and completed *after* you have completed your Training Application, been accepted, and registered into our Hypnobabies Instructor Training Program. This satisfies our Hypnobabies Training’s hypnosis requirements while working at your own pace. Your Introduction to Hypnosis Course must be completed by 4 weeks before Training begins.

B) If you are a birth worker or a Hypno-student and have already taken at least 50 hours of basic hypnosis training at a reputable hypnosis school, you’ll need to provide your completed hypnosis training certificate to us. (This hypnosis training needs to have been fully completed by the time you have your Zoom interview with Hypnobabies.)

4) Childbirth Education Training: A background in childbirth education means that you are already a birth professional who has completed doula, childbirth, midwifery or nursing training (and can provide us with a copy of your training certificate).

For those *without* a background in childbirth education (our Hypno-moms/students, prenatal massage therapists, etc.), our Online Introduction to Childbirth Ed Workshop is *required* and will be completed *online* after registration and by 4 weeks before Training begins. Free with your paid Registration, for those who are required to take it. It consists of invaluable information on pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and educator techniques. Workshop includes your Intro to Childbirth Ed Workshop online resources and all other materials.
Walk away from our Hypnobabies Instructor Training process … trained! “The most through childbirth instructor training available” – that’s what  our certified Hypnobabies Instructors find out after they have been trained! Watch Amanda Johnson’s 2 minute video here.  You can also read testimonials from our Hypnobabies Instructors – why they chose to become trained in Hypnobabies, what they thought about the Training itself and what it means to them to bring a much easier and more gentle way of birthing to the families in their community.

In our Hypnobabies Instructor Training, *you* will become both student and teacher as you easily learn Hypnobabies and how to teach it effectively and compassionately … class by class, participating fully in all facets of your training. With a complete set of Hypnobabies Instructor materials and our very comprehensive, hands-on instruction, you will feel completely confident that you are qualified to successfully teach Hypnobabies and able to promote and market your classes as well. Our Instructor’s Manual is so detailed that our course teaches itself, and you will be provided with the Instructor materials that you need to easily begin your journey as a Hypnobabies Instructor. We also have a Facebook Hypnobabies Instructors group that you will join after certification, and get all of your “new instructor” questions answered.
At the end of each Hypnobabies Instructor Training day, Trainees will complete their open-book daily Quiz, and before becoming certified as a Hypnobabies Instructor, they will complete their Final Exam and Student Resource List, and provide us with their birth-business social media and website/blog URLS.
