What is Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis?


Many of the birthing mothers who use Hypnobabies experience only pressure or tightening sensations during birth. They have their babies in a state of deep relaxation, with little or no discomfort or fear using real hypno-anesthesia.

Hypnobabies is a 6 week *complete childbirth education course* using Gerald Kein's Painless Childbirth Hypnosis techniques instead of simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery.

We use our Hypnobabies Workbook, CDs and hypnosis scripts to train the inner mind that contractions in labor will be felt only as pressure and tightening sensations.

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 the Hypnobabies Birth Partners how to fully support our Hypno-moms, although Hypnobabies can also be used very successfully by single mothers.

Although not every woman will have a completely comfortable unmedicated birthing experience, we aim for moms having the most comfortable birth experience possible and about 70% of our moms have completely comfortable births, far above any other childbirth method, which is very gratifying.

The amazing BENEFITS of a Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis Birth:

* Relaxed Mom and Dad throughout pregnancy, labor and birth. Both parents participate in the Hypnosis and Fear Release sessions, providing them with a sense of calm and confidence. 

* Shorter labors due to lack of resistance in the birthing muscles.

*Fewer complications and interventions, as the body and mind stay completely relaxed during labor. Posterior and Breech babies can be turned with hypnosis as well.

*Fewer drugs or no drugs at all, means less risk of harmful side effects for mother and baby.

*Elimination of the Fear/Tension/Pain Syndrome. CDs and scripts are used in labor to effect post-hypnotic suggestions for elimination of discomfort and relaxation.

Discomfort in childbirth can be the result of the Fear/Tension/Pain Cycle (Syndrome). This begins with Fear, which produces tension in the body, which creates tightness (Tension) and constriction of the uterine muscles, which results in Pain.

In Hypnobabies classes, you will learn how to relax both the mind and body, eliminating fear and therefore pain, as well as create hypnotic anesthesia, remain mobile during hypnosis and use post-hypnotic suggestions for ease of birth, recovery and breastfeeding if you so choose.
