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 is the real deal, and teaches our moms how to use medical-grade hypnosis techniques, the same techniques people use to undergo surgery without drugs! This hypnosis creates an automatically peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy, a calm and confident Birth Partner, and an easier, much more comfortable natural birthing for our Hypno-Mom!

yeah, it sounds kinda WEIRD!

no, we don't
hypnotize babies!

how does it work?

Hypnobabies uses the same medical-grade hypnosis techniques that people employ when preparing for surgery without any drugs, which is called Hypno-anesthesia.

 Hypnosis can create effective pain elimination for surgeries of all kinds, and it can work very well for childbirth.
Your mind is much more powerful than you may realize!

When our Hypno-moms listen to hypnotic childbirth suggestions everyday in their hypnosis scripts or listening to their Hypnobabies program audio tracks, their inner mind becomes “re-trained” to perceive childbirth as easy and comfortable, their birthing waves as pressure, stretching or pulling sensations, and the pushing phase of childbirth as easier and much more efficient. This is just like programming a computer or entering a document into it and giving it a file name so that later you can find and edit or print out that document.

Hypnobabies moms use these hypnosis suggestions, techniques, and mental cues during their baby’s birth, and having been already integrated into the subconscious, they are instantly available. Similar to accessing a specific folder name in your computer and opening up a saved file or document, Hypnobabies hypnosis techniques are accessed with mental and physical cues and are automatically functional during birth.

One of the main hypnosis cues is a mental “lightswitch” that each Hypnosis-mom can use herself; her own “Enter” key on her mental computer. Since hypnosis is cumulative, each time she practices her “lightswitch”, she automatically becomes more deeply primed with Hypnobabies hypnosis cues, just like editing (adding to) a document with more text each time, for later use.

Hypnobabies hypnosis for childbirth is easy to learn, practice, and use with a little bit of education and guidance, as with any new program we learn in life, is best done as directed. We can’t program our own computers without guidance from the experts, and the same is true for childbirth hypnosis. 

Think of yourself as a computer programmer - reprogramming your brain when it comes to childbirth!

We all have belief systems, beliefs that are stored in our subconscious mind. Everything you've ever seen, heard or experienced regarding childbirth is stored in your subconscious and creates your belief system about birth!

Stop for a moment.
What ADJECTIVES would you use to describe your expectation of birth?

We want to view birth as the normal, natural, beautiful experience it can be. 

what is hypnosis?

a state of relaxation in which you are in total CONTROL

Everyday examples when you’ve already
naturally experienced hypnosis:

Driving a car
Riding an elevator
Being bored by another person
Watching TV, Movies or Video Games
Daydreaming or “zoning out” 

What does hypnosis feel like?

Can anyone be hypnotized?

Will I do something against my will?

Since hypnosis is a means of moving into a perfectly natural state of mind that all people actually experience several times in a day, it feels very “normal”. Have you ever had the experience of driving along the highway and suddenly realizing that you passed your exit several miles back? You were in hypnosis!

Or been so caught up in a book or movie or video game that you don’t even realize that someone has been speaking to you for the past several minutes? THAT is hypnosis. So you see, when a hypnotist or a hypnosis audio track guides you into hypnosis, they are not asking you to experience anything strange or that you haven’t experienced before.

Daydreaming, falling asleep and waking up, “zoning out” – these are all states of hypnosis and everyone experiences these differently. In guided hypnosis sessions, we all experience hypnosis differently as well. Some people feel very light and “floaty”, some people feel very heavy, and some people are even hyper-aware of everything around them when they listen! Some people don’t “feel” or “experience” anything at all that is out of the ordinary for them while they are in hypnosis. You simply cannot gage your state of hypnosis by a feeling, or an experience.

Anyone of at least average intelligence, who can follow directions can be hypnotized. Occasionally, a person may need several attempts before actually entering into hypnosis. What causes this? Generally, it’s holding onto a little bit of fear – fear of loss of control. This is actually a misunderstanding as the proper use of hypnosis actually gives you greater control over all aspects of your life.

When you are hypnotized, you are aware of all suggestions given to you and you will not do anything against your moral or ethical principles. (Despite what you may have seen in stage hypnosis shows)!

Will I remember everything that happens in hypnosis?

Yes, you will remember everything that happens in hypnosis if that is your desire. Occasionally a person might choose to selectively forget certain facts for a time and then bring them up later when they are more ready.

Could I get stuck in hypnosis?

There is no danger of a person failing to come out of the hypnotic state. In fact it would be impossible to remain hypnotized. Some people choose to stay in trance a little longer because it feels so good and it’s the most relaxed they’ve been in their lives!

But I don’t think I can be hypnotized!

Again, ANYONE can be hypnotized (see above). There is no such thing as a “good” subject or a “bad” subject, only those who choose not to follow directions.

Why Use Hypnosis for Childbirth?

Mention Labor & Delivery to an expectant mom in her last trimester, and chances are good that her heart will begin to race, her mind floods with concern and in some cases, she panics. She knows that the day is coming when a force much bigger than herself will take over and her body will govern itself completely. For some women birth is a very fearful event, but for a Hypnobabies mom, it is an eagerly anticipated challenge, because they use hypnosis to eliminate discomfort and fear from the birthing experience.

In the past, the word “hypnosis” conjured up images of stage hypnotists re-creating Elvis, or memories of having seen people mesmerized into embarrassing situations. Today it’s becoming more and more common for hypnosis to be used therapeutically in the areas of medicine, dental and surgical anesthesia and personal therapy sessions. Even so, there are many misconceptions regarding hypnosis that can dissuade those contemplating this powerful tool.

When learning how to use hypnosis for childbirth, women are taught that the uterine muscles will work efficiently together, as they were designed to, when the body is completely relaxed. The depth of relaxation necessary is achieved with hypnosis so expectant moms learn these skills in class, and practice them at home every day until their baby arrives.

Important: Comfort in childbirth depends on much more than deep relaxation, so in a complete hypnosis for childbirth program, moms must be taught the most in-depth hypnotic anesthesia techniques that exist. These make a huge difference in creating your truly comfortable birthing experience, and they are easily learned and practiced. 

In other cultures, childbirth is regarded as a natural, normal event in a woman’s life. The birthing women are given support from other women, and children are often present to witness the event. In this way, birth is celebrated and honored. Young girls then grow up with the belief system that birth is a positive event and their expectations of childbirth reflect this attitude. As a result, their births are similar to their predecessors; without pain and fear. They have a positive expectation of childbirth.

In our culture, it is very much the opposite. For many generations we have been told that delivering a baby will be untold hours of painfully agonizing work, to be faced with fear and trepidation. We have heard stories from well-meaning friends and family that send shivers up our spines, and so the legacy continues. We experience discomfort in childbirth, in part because we very much expect to!

In Hypnobabies classes, you are taught to surround yourself with only positive people and messages during your pregnancy, to create a positive view of childbirth and the expectation that your birthing with be a beautiful, peaceful experience. Hypnobabies “Fear Clearing” hypnosis sessions are integral to this process, since they allow you to address fears, work through possible solutions and then release them.

Fear in labor can create tension, which creates pain, then more fear, and the cycle continues. Fear and anxiety can also create adrenaline production in the body, causing the labor to become dysfunctional, a common reason for Cesarean Section surgery. Freedom from fear can make a significant difference in the birthing experience.

By learning and practicing hypnosis, you will be able to enter self-hypnosis instantly, and how to create your own natural anesthesia whenever and wherever you need it. This is important since any drugs taken by a laboring woman can be dangerous for her, and her baby. Hypnobabies childbirth hypnosis allows you to remain in control over your body and emotions, and be an active participant in your birth process.

You are always aware of everything around you, and as labor progresses, you’ll go deeper inside yourself, trusting in your body’s natural ability to give birth with ease and comfort. Your mind is trained and programmed to give you exactly what you need as you give birth to your baby.

Statistics: The following are statistics for Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis only: (based on our very successful 6 week course, and 18 total hours of instruction)

1) Very Comfortable births – 70-75%. Women who report that they felt mostly pressure, tightening or mild cramping sensations.

2) Comfortable until transition – 15%. Pressure only, until the 10-60 minute transitional period, with mild to intense degrees of sensation thereafter. “Very manageable.”

3) Comfortable until active labor – 10%, with mild to intense degrees of sensation thereafter This group can have any number of things that affect their birth experiences; prodromal labor, posterior or asynclitic presentations that do not resolve, other labor complications, emotional issues, lack of support, or they simply did not do their homework! (45 minutes a day) Hypnosis for childbirth won’t help a mother or a couple that is not willing to do the work involved in preparing for their baby’s birth.

All women reported that the Relaxation and Fear Clearing in the Hypnobabies program were invaluable to them during their labors.

How effective is this?

Many moms use fewer drugs or no drugs, which means less risk of side effects for you and your baby.

Most Hypno-mothers have shorter labors since there is less resistance of the birthing muscles when pain and fear are minimized or eliminated.

Hypno-Moms generally have much more energy throughout first and second stage, due to achieving total relaxation throughout the birthing process.

The birthing environment is much more calm and peaceful when you, the natural childbirth mother are comfortable, relaxed and confident.

Breech and posterior babies can be turned using hypnosis.

Blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature can be lowered and nausea, back and hip pain eliminated with hypnosis during pregnancy and labor.

There are fewer interventions for failure to progress and therefore fewer complications during labor for our mothers and babies.

As a Hypnobabies mom, you are easily “deprogrammed” from the usual negativity of childbirth stories and scenarios you may have heard or read, during Hypnobabies classes and by listening to audio tracks which have positive messages and hypnotic suggestions. This automatically allows you to have a much more positive attitude and confidence in birthing.
