NO! These are not babies we have hypnotized, but rather they are born to parents who have prepared for an easier, more comfortable natural childbirth using Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis, which some might call “hypnobirthing”. What makes Hypnobabies different from other hypnosis for birth programs is that we teach real medical hypnosis techniques, a phenomenon called hypno-anesthesia. This creates an automatically peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy, a calm confident Hypno-Dad, and an easier, fearless and often (70% say so!) completely comfortable birthing for our Hypno-Mom. I am one of those Moms that describes her births as nearly pain free and mostly very comfortable! Want to read about the my births? Here is Marlowe’s and Zephyr’s birth story. So, you want to have this kind of birth, too right?! Let’s get you registered today and you can be practicing your birthing techniques in just a couple of days.
Please contact me directly for availability and registration. I offer flexible payment plans using Paypal’s Bill Me Later Option and provide my services on trade/barter terms as well. Scholarships are also available on a limited basis, please inquire to see if you qualify.
Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis Group Class is $400. Wanna know what’s in it for you when you register? Materials and Course content can be found here.
The series is 6 weeks long, one day per week lasting about 3 1/2 hours. In each class we will spend about 3 hours covering information regarding pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum topics. The remaining time will be devoted to learning and practicing your hypnosis techniques for birth and how to make them most effective. Groups are limited to a maximum 5 couples and located in Metro Atlanta, Gwinnett County, and Greater Athens. If the current schedule and/or locations don’t work for your family, a Create-A-Class may work. These Birthing Classes are held in the same structure, but in the home of one of the families with a minimum of 3 couples. Private Classes in your home are available, as well and start at $650. For some families, 18+ hours and a 6 week commitment can be a challenge with busy lifestyles and hectic work schedules. While there are many wonderful benefits to finding a way to attend a group class with live instruction, Hypnobabies has an awesome Home Study Program and (lucky you!) I would be happy to schedule a Home Study Advantage for $100.
The video below is of a Hypno-Mom using her Hypnobabies techniques during a pressure sensation (contraction). Because the video is just over a minute long, I estimate that she is at least 6-7 cm dilated. She is using one of the primary tools for birth learned in our child birth class. It’s a wonderful option in hypnosis that allows the birthing woman to stay mobile and use active positioning to help facilitate an easier birth, while still deeply in hypnosis. Another unique advantage to taking Hypnobabies! Her support person (doula) is holding a firm hand on her shoulder as a cue to help her reach deeper levels of comfort and relaxation during her waves. In the background, you can hear the Hypnobabies Relaxation music. This is the background track to all the hypnosis sessions you will enjoy as you practice for birth, and becomes an instant relaxation cue for you as well.
