Hypnobabies Self-Study Course
What is Hypnobabies?
Yes! These are babies whose parents choose to easily and naturally prepare for childbirth using the Hypnobabies method of Hypnotic Childbirth, which some might call “hypno-birthing”. Hypnobabies, however, is very different in that we teach real medical hypnosis techniques, creating an automatically peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy, a calm confident Birth Partner, and an easier, more comfortable and sometimes pain-free birthing for our Hypno-Mom.
Hypnobabies 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” rather than using simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery. This allows our Hypno-Moms 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 women to create much shorter, easier and more comfortable labours, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be.
Expectant mothers use our Hypnobabies Workbook, hypnosis audio tracks and scripts to train their inner mind that contractions in labour will be felt only as pressure, tightening, pushing, pulling and normal baby movement sensations. Women are fully in tune with their babies and their bodies 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.
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 the Hypno-Moms, and Hypnobabies is used very successfully by single mothers too. A willing Birth Partner is a bonus!
Including a very comprehensive childbirth education curriculum also ensures that our Hypno-moms 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.
Did you know?
There are people that have life-threatening allergies to anesthetics who successfully undergo medical and dental surgery with hypnosis as their only anesthesia! If hypnosis can create effective pain elimination for surgeries of all kinds, we know it can work for childbirth, and it does quite well. Your mind is much more powerful than you may realize, and right now you’re using only 10% of it. You can easily tap into that gold mine and you’ll be amazed at what you can do!

Unique Benefits of Hypnobabies
How is Hypnobabies different from other Childbirth Hypnosis programs?
I am asked many times what is the difference between Hypnobabies® and other natural childbirth or birth hypnosis programs (like HypnoBirthing the Mognan Method), and here I will answer that question by telling you what we do well without disparaging any other particular group. Other natural childbirth courses have excellent programs and benefits that have helped many women have better, more relaxed births. I recognize that and celebrate them and what they do every day for birthing women!
We use real, medical-grade, somnambulistic hypnosis techniques, addressing the mind, body, and spirit of both mother and baby, so our success and satisfaction rates are wonderful and very gratifying. Our goal is helping families to “enjoy your baby’s birth in comfort, joy and love”!
Unique to Hypnobabies
Gerald Kein’s powerful Painless Childbirth program, as opposed to simple visualization and imagery. Hypnobabies contains the same kinds of powerful somnambulistic hypnosis scripts used by people who undergo surgery successfully using hypnosis as their only anesthetic – people that are allergic to medical anesthesia and use *only* Hypno-anesthesia techniques during surgery – the same one used in Hypnobabies!
learn and become proficient in deep physical relaxation, and Easy, Comfortable Childbirth, enabling them to easily master deep hypnosis and positive birth training. Each Hypno-mom is then able to create deep physical relaxation and practice their hypnosis skills for several weeks (or months!) before Hypnobabies Class even starts. This makes it much easier to learn her Hypnobabies Hypno-anesthesia techniques in each class, bringing the Birth Partner into the preparation, (if they have one) and also how to use hypnosis for many other issues: nausea elimination, back and hip pain, insomnia, pre-term labor, pre-term bleeding, perineal massage, internal exams, turning a breech, etc.
2 45 minute-long Affirmations tracks. We also include 1 hypnosis track for our Birth Partners so that they easily become calm and relaxed about pregnancy and childbirth.
Unique to Hypnobabies: Since the background music in all of our Hypnobabies hypnosis audio tracks becomes a part of the hypnotic induction process, it contains “binaural beats”. This process allows the brain waves to synchronize (brain wave entrainment) which provides our Hypno-mom and Birth Partners to enter hypnosis faster and attain a deeper state of hypnosis called “somnambulism”, where Hypno-anesthesia is more easily created and accessed. This is a very important unique feature of Hypnobabies since our expectant and birthing Hypnobabies moms can enter hypnosis instantly and become physically comfortable and emotionally confident as soon as the music begins!
each Hypno-mother’s needs are unique during labor, and since she has learned and practiced these cues many times, she can choose which ones are most effective for her as she gives birth to her baby.
hypnosis script each week in class and their hypnosis scripts booklet provides them with that same script to work with for reinforcementduring the next week. This makes a huge difference when training the inner mind for success of any kind. It is called “compounding” in the world of hypnosis and is necessary for hypnotic suggestions to be retained by the woman’s subconscious. Working on progressively more powerful scripts several times week together also allows our moms to become “hypno-trained” to the touch and voice of their birth partner and therefore respond much more easily and quickly to birthing cues during labor.
and confident attitude towards pregnancy and childbirth, and their own detailed Birth Partner’s Guide booklet for labor, which allows them to fully learn and feel confident about their role in the preparation for baby’s birth as well as easily supporting the Hypno-Mom during birthing. This includes 4 pages of verbal birthing cues which keep the Hypno-Mom in hypnosis during first stage, transition, beginning to push, the pushing phase as well as tools for remaining calm, relaxed, confident and comfortable in between contractions.

All of our Hypno-anesthesia techniques can be easily learned, practiced and used alone, or with a Birth Partner or doula.
does so (see information below, and our Class Outline). Providing our *Complete Childbirth Education* ensures that our Hypnobabies students will not need to take other childbirth education classes where techniques and philosophies are learned which can negate childbirth hypnosis instruction. “Pain management and coping skills” are actually opposite of what is learned in Hypnobabies; we teach Pain Elimination by using real Hypno-anesthesia. We have found that attempting to embrace opposing childbirth methods (which create specific belief systems) can be detrimental to success with hypnotic childbirth. Including Complete Childbirth Education is essential for *any* birth hypnosis program.
Unique to Hypnobabies
talk and move around freely yet remain deeply in hypnosis, very relaxed, fully present, aware and in touch with her body and baby and *comfortable while doing so*. Other programs rely on immobility for focus and concentration, which can severely impede the progress of labor and the descent and positioning of the baby.

comfortable birthing techniques and give birth easily and in a very detailed and personal way. This “mental birthing rehearsal” is very important to the process of easy and comfortable birthing and is done many times until your Hypno-baby is born, helping program your subconscious mind to produce exactly the kind of birthing you want. Athletes and public speakers of all kinds do this to prepare with great success, and so do our Hypno-moms!
both the first stage of labor and the pushing phase (helping to avoid the “ring of fire” and includes mother-directed pushing) as well as “positive birth team” suggestions, dilation and effacement boosting throughout. Birth Professionals are fascinated at how completely relaxed and physically comfortable our Hypno-moms are, how easily they are able to move around and communicate and still remain deeply in hypnosis, and how “in control” they are of their bodies, minds and emotions. Our Hypnobabies students tell us that our Birth Guide tracks are “Pure Gold!”

Birth Partners & Hypnobabies
Birth Partners are encouraged to become emotionally invested and involved in the Hypnobabies program.
They are an active participant in class and will also be guiding the mother into deep hypnosis by reading her hypnosis scripts (if able and available) in between classes. The connection between you and your partner is enhanced as you prepare for your baby’s birth together.
Your partner will also be an invaluable part of the birth process, helping you to focus and concentrate on your birth hypnosis tools, while offering emotional and physical support. Your partner will even have the opportunity to listen to their own hypnosis audio track and become confident about their role in supporting you through pregnancy and childbirth.
Single expectant mothers, or moms whose partner is unable to attend classes with her can also enjoy the program by using audio tracks that are specifically designed for them. Hypnobabies can easily be learned, practiced and used alone or with a Birth Partner or Hypno-Doula.
A Certified Hypnobabies Hypno-Doula can make a wonderful addition to your birthing team and is familiar with all of the specific hypnosis cues and techniques to be able to support you completely during your birthing time.
