Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis Classes
Abbie first time mom
I am three weeks away from my guess date with my first baby, and my husband and I just finished Sheridan's 6-week Hypnobabies course. I feel compelled to tell the world about it because this was SUCH a valuable experience, and I want EVERYONE to know how awesome this course really is.
First of all, Hypnobabies itself is an amazing course, especially if, like me, you find childbirth to be a scary concept. Hypnobabies will give you so much confidence. You'll get the tools you need to be in control of your body and feel prepared and courageous. Yes, there is work required on your part, but giving birth is such a momentous experience…why wouldn't you need to train for it like you'd train for any other important event in your life? Actually, though, the "work" you'll do at home is really enjoyable and relaxing for both you and your partner. I found I looked forward to listening to my Hypnobabies CDs every day.
Hypnobabies is not just about hypnosis, though. It also teaches you everything you need to know about pregnancy, nutrition, and giving birth. There are so many choices you may need to make during your birthing experience, and so many interventions, and Hypnobabies will prepare you to make all your choices with confidence. I truly feel like I'm going into my birth with my eyes wide open, armed with all the information I might possibly need. It's a great feeling!
By far, though, the most valuable part of our Hypnobabies experience was Sheridan! I cannot possibly say enough about her, and my husband feels the same way. We drove over an hour (each way) every week to get to Sheridan's class, and it was totally worth it. Taking Sheridan's class was the best decision we could have made. We both looked forward to our class all week. Sheridan is passionate, nurturing, and amazing in every way. You have to meet her to know what I'm talking about! You will never find someone who is more enthusiastic about birth, and her enthusiasm is contagious. Her classes are small (ours had only two couples, and we LOVED our classmates), so you get so much individual attention and support. My husband and I are so grateful to Sheridan for this wonderful experience. She has completely changed the way we look at our impending birth. If you're considering taking her course, do it! RUN, don't walk! You can thank me later.

Taking Hypnobabies Classes with Sheridan has made me fell educated and very aware of what my body is capable of doing. I admit when I went to the first class I was a bit skeptical that it would work for me… after the first class was over I was amazed! I kept telling my husband, “I couldn’t open my eyes!” I realized that my mind really does have the power to control my body.
I enjoy listening to the CD’s every day and find it very relaxing. It has also relaxed me in general and has helped me be a calmer person during this pregnancy. The affirmation CD has also really helped me believe that I can have a fast easy birth! Read Jenn's Birth Story here.

Kristy said about Hypnobabies, "Before I looked at labor as "something in my way that I must go through in order to have my baby"....this time I look at it as a challenging beautiful moment in our lives waiting to happen. I know my own change of attitude will make the biggest difference, but certainly the place and atmosphere set with Hypnobabies will help as well!

Thank you for Hypnobabies. This is an amazing program. I can't begin to tell you how terrified of giving birth I was before starting your program. As it turned out, I totally embraced my birthing time and it was the most amazing experience of my life! I can't wait to do it again! (okay, well maybe I can wait a little while) Jen

I am just under 4 weeks from my guess date with my first baby and I am getting so excited!
I just wanted to share some extra positive things that this program has helped me with before I even give birth. First of all, I feel so much more in control of the process than I did before I started the program. I am a very organize person and I feel more comfortable when I am informed. The relaxation excercises have let me be EXCITED about my birthing process instead of nervous and frightened.
I also love all the additional info about the birthing that the lessons have given me. I went on my birthing center tour the other night and I was the only person asking any questions. I felt that because I was already so informed that I was able to ask the nurse how all of my needs were going to be met by them. It was great! Everyone else in the tour just kind of stood there. I almost felt bad for them, like they might not know what to ask because they had no idea what they were in for. The only other person who asked something wanted to know where the coffee machines were for her husband!
So...Yay Hypnobabies! And thanks for helping me already!
