The Amazing benefits of a Hypnobabies® birth are:

  • Relaxed Mom and Dad throughout the pregnancy, labor and birth.  Both parents participate in the Hypnosis and Fear Release sessions, providing them with a sense of calm and confidence.
  • Shorter labors due to lack of resistance in the birthing muscles.
  • Fewer complications and interventions, as the body and mind stay completely relaxed during labor. Posterior and Breech babies can be turned with hypnosis as well.
  • Fewer drugs or no drugs at all, means less risk of harmful side effects for mother and baby.
  • Elimination of the Fear/Tension/Pain Syndrome.  CD's and scripts are used in labor to effect post hypnotic suggestions for elimination of discomfort and relaxation.
