What is Hypnobabies
Hypnosis....BABIES? Yes! There are babies whose parents choose to easily and naturally prepare for childbirth using the Hypnobabies method of Hypnotic Childbirth, which some might call "hypnobirthing" .
Hypnobabies however, is very different . At Hypnobabies we teach medical-grade , somnambulistic hypnosis techniques, creating a peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy , a calm confident Birth Partner, and an easier, more comfortable and sometimes pain-free natural birthing for our Hypno-mom.
How does it work?
Hypnobabies is a very successful 6 week, 3-hour per week, complete childbirth education course that was adapted with permission from Gerald Kein's" Painless Childbirth Program" techniques rather than using simple relaxation, creating or guided imagery. This allows our Hypnosis-mom to enjoy " Eye Open childbirth Hypnosis, easily remaining deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking and changing positions; being as mobile as they would like to be during childbirth. Hypnobabies is well-known for helping women to create much shorter, easier and more comfortable births, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be.
Expectant mothers use our Hypnobabies workbooks, hypnosis audio tracks and scripts to retrain their subconscious mind so that their contractions will be perceived by their body as pressure or a squeezing-type sensation, and/or pushing, pulling and normal baby movement sensations. With the use of deep , medical-grade hypnosis and the type of hypnotic compounding( repetition) that our Hypnobabies students learn,practice and use during labor, normal birthing sensations can be transformed into pleasurable ones. Our Hypno-moms are also fully in tune with their babies during the birthing process, and as aware of everything around them as they'd like to be, easily able to communicate with their birth support team, and completely in charge of their own birthing experience.
The benefits of taking a Hypnobabies class
The birthing environment is much more calm and peaceful when the natural childbirth mother is comfortable. Birth partners, family member and medical caregivers remain more relaxed, calm and confident when our birthing mother uses Hypnobabies hypnosis techniques to enjoy s more serene birthing.
Breech and posterior babies can sometimes be turned using hypnosis. Blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature can also be lowered and nausea, back and hip pain eliminated with hypnosis techniques during pregnancy and birth.
Many Hypnobabies mothers have shorter births since their hypnosis training can minimize discomfort and fear, and help eliminate tension between the birthing muscles. By using deep hypnosis, all muscles in the body are conditioned to remain very deeply relaxed, which allows the uterus to work more effectively.
Problems created by "labor" drugs can be easily avoided when using Hypnobabies program techniques. Moreover, post-hypnotic suggestions can eliminated the FEAR/TENSION/PAIN cycle , Hypno-moms request fever drugs or no drugs at all, which means less risk of side effects for her or her baby.
