Eyes open hypnosis for Childbirth
I came across Hypnobabies when I was pregnant. I was looking for the best childbirth preparation and I learned about hypnosis. Hypnobabies is a FULL childbirth preparation, it combines hypnosis and « regular » knowledge about pregnancy, baby positioning, nutrition, exercise, benefits/risks/alternatives of common obstetrical interventions, stage of birth, newborn care…
We chose to have the Hypnobabies series childbirth preparation, which was 3 hours a week for 6 weeks. It’s a commitment. It was so empowering to learn so much about pregnancy and childbirth, as well as hypnosis. Hypnobabies also have an online course study option for busier parents.
After my « formal » doula training, I became certified as Hypnobabies hypno-doula. Hypnobabies doulas are completely familiar with the philosophy, techniques, cue words and other materials that Hypnobabies program is teaching. They also know, as other non-hypnobabies doulas, how to talk with the hospital caregivers (if hospital birth) and support your choices during your baby’s birth.
Hypno-doulas can’t replace the hypnobabies training. The birthing person must follow the Hypnobabies course and practice the hypno-tools everyday to have a hypnobabies birth!
