About Hypnobabies

Hypnobabies® is a very successful 6 week complete childbirth education course using Gerald Kein’s Painless Childbirth techniques instead of simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery.

Hypnobabies mothers can easily enter hypnosis by themselves and enjoy "Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis" which enables them to remain deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking, changing positions and being as mobile as they would like to be during their birthing time. Hypnobabies is famous for much shorter, easier and more comfortable labors, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be.

You’ll use your Hypnobabies Workbook, CDs and hypnosis scripts to train your inner mind that contractions in labour will be felt only as pressure, tightening, pushing, pulling and normal baby movement sensations. You’ll be fully in tune with your baby during the birthing process, and as aware as you’d like to be, easily able to communicate and be in charge of your own birth experience.

Hypnobabies uses the same kind of hypnosis techniques that people employ when preparing for surgery without any medication, which is called hypno-anesthesia. Our classes also teach our Hypnobabies Birth Partners how to fully support our Hypno-Moms, although Hypnobabies can also be used very successfully by single mothers.

Hypnobabies also includes a very comprehensive childbirth education curriculum which ensures that our Hypno-Parents are able to make informed decisions regarding the care they receive during pregnancy and childbirth. This allows Hypno-Moms to remain deeply committed to their Hypnobabies training, since they have everything they need to prepare for their birth with confidence and ease.

Although not every woman will have a completely pain-free birthing experience, many of our Hypno-Moms do and our satisfaction rate is excellent, which is very gratifying!

Why choose an easier and more comfortable birth with Hypnobabies®? The benefits are many:

  • Most Hypnobabies moms use fewer drugs or no drugs, which means less risk of side effects for them or their babies. This is due to elimination of the Fear/Tension/Pain Syndrome, and using posthypnotic suggestions.
  • Most Hypnobabies mothers have shorter labors since there is less resistance of the birthing muscles when pain and fear are minimized or eliminated.
  • Hypno-Moms generally have much more energy throughout first and second stage, due to them being profoundly relaxed throughout the birthing process.
  • The birthing environment is much more calm and peaceful when the natural childbirth mother is comfortable, relaxed and confident.
  • Breech and posterior babies can be turned using hypnosis.
  • Blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature can be lowered and nausea, back and hip pain eliminated with hypnosis during pregnancy and birth.
  • There are fewer interventions for failure to progress and therefore fewer complications during labor for our mothers and babies.
  • 70-75% of Hypnobabies moms report that they experience very comfortable births, feeling mostly pressure, tightening or mild cramping sensations (instead of pain and discomfort).
