FAQs

 

  • What is Hypnobabies?
    • Hypnobabies  is a 6 week complete childbirth education course, covering Nutrition,  Prenatal Exercise, Staying Healthy and Low Risk, Birth Plans, Comfort in  Pregnancy, Consumer issues (Birthing Choices), New Baby Care and much  more.
    • Instead  of doing patterned breathing or simple relaxation exercises, our  Hypno-moms and their Birth Partners learn self-hypnosis sessions in  class so that our Hypno-moms can work towards enjoying an easier, more  comfortable birth.
    • We  do a different hypnosis session in most of our 6 classes, and each  hypno-couple takes home a modified script of that same session to work  with, learning a new part of the program each week for 6 weeks.
  • When is the ideal time for a mom/couple to take a Hypnobabies class?
    • Any  time is good, with the ideal start time being between 25 - 30 weeks.   This allows mom and birth partner to complete the class by "early term"  and have a few weeks for maintenance Home Play.  Classes may taken  earlier; however, it is important that mom and birth partner understand  that upkeep of the maintenance Home Play will be necessary throughout  the remainder of the pregnancy.
  • When should I register?
    • It's  never too early to register.  Upon registration, you'll receive your  very first Hypnobabies mp3 download or CD so you get to start practicing  even before you step foot in the classroom!
    • Classes  are kept small so that couples can have personalized attention (maximum  of 6 couples per class), so early registration ensures your space is  saved.
  • How much does it cost?
    • Group classes are $350 with a maximum of 6 couples.  Private classes are $750.
  • How long is the class?
    • All  Hypnobabies Classes are 6 weeks long, one class per week, 3 – 3½ hours  each class, and can only be taught by certified Hypnobabies Instructors.
  • What is required outside of class?
    • Working  together on scripts is fun and relaxing and gives you both an  opportunity to do something very positive together towards having a  wonderful birthing.
    • You,  as the Hypno-mom get to relax in a comfortable position while your  birth partner reads positive messages about childbirth to you with soft  music on in the background. Easy!
    • You  also get to listen to a special audio track each week on the alternate  days by yourself, and this allows you to have some time to yourself at  least every other day to relax and feel great.
    • There  is also daily individual brief hypnosis practice for you to complete  and some reading homework for you and your Birth Partner each week.
  • What should I expect?
    • After  the course is over, you’ll continue on a Hypnobabies maintenance  routine of one script or one audio track per day until your baby is  born, so that the messages will stay firmly engrained in your inner  mind, and then your Hypnobabies techniques will be right there for you  when you give birth.
    • You’ll need about 45 minutes a day for your maintenance practice.
  • What are the class materials?
    • The  materials you will receive in Hypnobabies Class are: Your Hypnobabies  Workbook, 4 MP3 download cards or 7 CDs for the Hypno-mom, 5 Hypnobabies  hypnosis scripts in a booklet, your Quick Reference Guide, your Birth  Partner’s Guide, the Birth Partner’s audio track on CD or MP3 download  card, and many important handouts.
