Like most women in the beginning of their pregnancy, I couldn’t stop researching anything and everything about birth and babies. One day while in a pregnancy forum on babycenter.com I came across something that struck my interest. The forum was called Hypnobabies. I immediately laughed to myself and thought “are you serious? Are people really using hypnosis to have babies?” It sounded like the most ridiculous thing ever!
But I was curious, so I continued to read the comments left by other pregnant mothers. Mom’s described their experience as “easy and comfortable”, “minimal discomfort”, “pleasant and wonderful”. I had never heard birth be described this way! I, like most first time moms, was fearful of the actual day I was to have my baby. Even knowing, that women “do it all the time”, I still got butterflies and anxiety at the thought of going into labor. Hearing birth describe as such an easy event, intrigued me to look into Hypnobabies further.
I came across Hypnobabies Youtube videos, and that is where I decided, I wanted my birth experience to look like what the women in the videos were doing. Women relaxed and totally comfortable while having contractions, even while pushing their baby out. Smiling, talking, laughing with others during their birthing times! This was the birth for me. Hypnobabies taught me deep relaxation techniques, as well as everything about pregnancy and birth. The “fear clearing” hypnosis CD helped calm my anxiety and gain confidence for my birth. When my birthing time came, I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and relaxed I was. My “birthing waves” (contractions) really did only feel like pressure. I was excited, never fearful or scared. My relaxed and easy 7 ½ hour birthing time came to an end with a beautiful baby boy! I was so amazed that my birthing experience was so peaceful. From that day on, I told every pregnant woman about Hypnobabies. I couldn’t help myself! I wanted more than anything, for other women to experience what I had! Which is the reason why I decided to become a Hypnobabies Instructor.
Hopefully, you are as intrigued as I was to learn more about Hypnobabies Childbirth Education. Hypnobabies is a six-week Childbirth Education course where expectant moms and birth partners learn to use real hypnosis techniques to create a more comfortable birth. Using Gerald Kein’s Painless Childbirth techniques, our Hypno-Moms are able to enjoy “Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis”, easily remaining deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking, changing positions; being as mobile as they would like to be during childbirth. Hypnobabies uses the same kinds of powerful somnambulistic hypnosis scripts used by people who undergo surgery successfully using hypnosis as their only anesthetic. We are famous for much shorter, easier and more comfortable labors, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be.
During the Hypnobabies course, you will be using your Hypnobabies Workbook, CDs and hypnosis scripts to train your inner mind that contractions in labor 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. Your birth partner will also learn hypnosis tools and techniques to help you remain as comfortable as possible. Our Hypno-moms are known for their fast and easy births and require little to no drugs at all.
Hypnobabies has helped so many moms in many different ways. I would like to encourage you to go to Hypnobabies.com and read a couple of birth stories. They will truly amaze you.
I am so excited to have the opportunity to be teaching classes at Sprout Soup! I hope to see many interested moms and moms-to-be at our free introduction to Hypnobabies session!

Quote from one of our Hypnobabies students
“I’ve been trying to think of how to explain my experience, but there really aren’t
logical words to describe it all. This was my 5th child-birth and was BY FAR the
best one. I was well trained in un-medicated child-birth through two other methods
and had 3 un-medicated births before Hypnobabies. The whole Hypnobabies class
helped my mental state and prepared me for my birthing time.”
