Product Description

The GOLD Standard in Childbirth Hypnosis - Hypnobabies: Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis. Our 5 week Hypnobabies Home Study Course for Expectant Mothers is an *advanced* Childbirth Hypnosis course, and is for women who want to ENJOY their baby's natural birth by using hypnosis to eliminate pain and fear. Designed for moms who cannot attend a Hypnobabies Class or want to study on their own, Hypnobabies provides hypnosis tracks and extensive educational materials to prepare for a much easier and more comfortable birth. Hypnobabies is based on Master Hypnotist Gerald Kein's Painless Childbirth Program and is extremely successful. It is the only childbirth hypnosis program that teaches you "Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis", allowing full mobility during labor *without losing focus*, so you can remain deeply in hypnosis, relaxed and physically comfortable throughout. This enables you to use upright positions for descent and positioning of your baby. Be prepared to learn self-hypnosis techniques which you will practice on a daily basis until your baby is born, which is such and easy and naturally enjoyable daily routine! Hypnobabies is also a 5 week COMPLETE childbirth education course, with a Nutritional Program, Pre-natal Exercises, Birth Plan, Optimal Fetal Positioning, Avoiding Back Labor, Anatomy and Physiology, Birthing Choices, Comfort and Safety in Pregnancy, Consumer Issues, Staying Healthy and Low Risk, "Change of Plans" hypnosis, and much more. Using your Hypnobabies Workbook, CDs and hypnosis cues, you deeply train your inner mind that contractions in labor are felt as pressure, stretching, pushing and baby movement sensations. Hypnobabies uses the same kind of hypnosis techniques that people employ when preparing for surgery without any medication - Hypno-Anesthesia. Birth Partners learn how to fully and easily support you during labor, although Hypnobabies is also used very successfully by single mothers. You need 5 weeks to complete this course. Enjoy!

As a birth doula, I love attending Hypnobabies births.
Terri
I recommend Hypnobabies to anyone who is very committed to a natural birth, with the caveat that I think it's important not to expect a pain free experience.
AB
I used Hypnobabies "peace" queue, and was able to ease my pain quite a lot.

I bought this course because I really wanted an unmedicated labor and I needed reassurance and confidence that I could get through it since it was my first child. This course really helped me to feel confident enough to get through the whole thing without any fear whatsoever, but I had no interest in using the Hypnobabies techniques during my labor because it was much easier for me to relax when I didn't listen to anything or anyone.

For confidence, Hypnobabies is great. However, I don't want women to think that the only way they can get the labor they want is with Hypnobabies. In reality, I didn't need to buy this kit in order to avoid an epidural. I don't think it really made my drug-free labor possible, but it may have helped. I followed the course faithfully and practiced regularly, but my labor was not pain-free. Hypnobabies never attempts to tell you that back labor with a posterior baby is pain-free. Instead, it tells you techniques to get the baby turned around. Unfortunately, none of those techniques got my baby turned, even with a doula helping. I don't blame Hypnobabies for this. My baby was just too low to be turned. I can honestly say I felt no pain at all in my belly for the entire 8 hours of my labor, but I felt such strong pressure on my back that the only thing that helped was counterpressure. Luckily I had a good husband and doula to push on my back and knees for 5 hours straight.

My biggest complaint about Hypnobabies is the way the handbook is written. It's extremely unprofessional and I had a hard time taking it seriously. Everything is underlined, asterisked, capitalized, bolded, and exclamation-marked. I almost wished I could write them a letter asking if I could rewrite it for them.

During my first pregnancy I took a live class from a different hypnosis for birth program, and was very disappointed. So I really did my research into all the available options before investing in the Hypnobabies Home Study. In my opinion, it is so far above and beyond anything else available on the market that it is in a category all its own. The Hypnobabies Home Study is amazingly complete, easy to learn and use, and resulted in an amazingly enjoyable birth! The natural childbirth information is invaluable and the self-hypnosis skills have been life-changing. They worked powerfully during my baby's birth and I have discovered many wonderful ways to use them daily since then. They are excellent birth and pregnancy skills, but also life skills that I use to eliminate stress, improve my sleep and handle daily discomforts for me and my family. My husband loved the fact that even though his schedule didn't allow him to be very involved in my preparation for the birth, he was able to quickly learn very effective and simple ways to play a huge role in my comfort during our natural birth. During the birth, my caregivers were amazed by how calm, happy and interactive I was. They nearly sent me home because I was "too happy to really be in labor". They realized their mistake moments later when they discovered I was fully dilated and ready to birth my baby! They now recommend Hypnobabies to all their moms who are interested in having a truly comfortable, enjoyable birth. It's amazing!

First of all, I should acknowledge that HypnoBabies helped me get through 36 hours of pitocin-induced contractions with no pain medication. That might be enough to qualify it for a five-star review for many, but not from me. Here's why:

HypnoBabies is NOT a thorough, comprehensive childbirth prep system, and it definitely claims to be, going so far as to recommend that you not attend any other classes or seek out any other information. Their assumption is that hearing childbirth will be painful will prevent you from internalizing the message that it will be pain free. Maybe that's true; my labor certainly wasn't pain free, though it was tolerable, and I did seek out additional information. Had I not, I wouldn't have been prepared at all for the unforeseen "bumps in the road" that can happen during childbirth. From my point of view, it's better to acknowledge and understand the interventions and medical procedures that might happen than to pretend positive thinking can protect you from anything negative.

Additionally, having had a high-risk pregnancy, I disliked the stigma HypnoBabies put on becoming high-risk. For women with pre-existing conditions (or just bad luck) a natural, low-intervention birth can still be possible, and is still a worthy goal.

Like some other reviewers, I was distracted by the poor editing of the written materials and the awkward wording on some of the CDs, but I managed to get past that. I think the package would also greatly benefit from the addition of at least one postpartum CD, since going from week after week of daily hypnosis to nothing is kind of strange.

Overall, I think HypnoBabies is a great tool to use for childbirth, and I highly recommend it, just not to the exclusion of other knowledge.

I had a very painful and difficult labor with my first son. I had taken childbirth class and really prepared, but it was horrible anyway. I tore badly and was very anxious and I think the baby was anxious because of it. Second baby, I chose a home birth with Hypnobabies. It was beyond what I could have imagined. You really do have to commit yourself to Hypnobabies if you go this route. Do not mix it with other methods and make sure your spouse or birth partner or doula is completely involved. My true labor was 5 hours and easy. Even when the baby was being born, I still didn't realize he was even coming right then. I never pushed or anything. I just stayed totally relaxed and let my body do what it needed to do. It was peaceful and very quiet. My mother was staying upstairs in our house and never knew I was in labor much less labor and birth until after I sent my doula up to tell her I had a baby at 3 am. The baby never cried at birth..just looked around and was totally alert and present. We left the cord attached for about 30 minutes. He always had what he needed and very unceremoniously began to breathe when he was ready. It was really something. My midwife was really amazed as well. She had never seen a Hypnobabies birth and just couldn't believe how easily I birthed the baby and how quickly labor progressed. She only checked me once and I was 5 cm. 45 minutes later, I had a baby. I can't recommend it highly enough. Oh...and my second was a full pound bigger than my first and I didn't have any tears at all. Being relaxed makes a HUGE difference. If you're pregnant...just get it and do it. Truly awesome.
