Does HypnoBirthing REALLY Make a Difference?
Frequently Asked Questions
+When should I start classes?
Most students attend class at the start of their second trimester.
BUT, pregnancy brain is a real thing so if you’re reading this and you’re due next month, check out our accelerated classes!
+How long is the HypnoBirthing® series?
It is a 5 week series, each class lasting 2-2.5 hours. Accelerated classes are 2 sessions, 4 hours each session.
+Does HypnoBirthing really mean a pain-free birth?
Nothing is for sure. Some people say they don’t, some say they do.
But all for sure are happy they prepared themselves with these classes because
they had tools to stay calm and centered regardless of how they experienced birth.
+Do I need to take another childbirth class?
Nope! No need to sign yourself up for that 8 hour hospital class on a Saturday (you’re welcome, dads).
You’ll learn all the “basic” childbirth details as well as HypnoBirthing work.
+How is this different from those hospital classes?
Hospital classes are great ways to learn “how to be a good patient.” With our classes, you’ll learn what YOU need to
feel comfortable and how to make that work within the hospital setting.
You also have an un-biased instructor, so ask all your crunchy momma questions!
+Could I just buy the book and CD’s and learn this program as a home study?
We don’t suggest it. We’ve instructed A LOT of “self taught” Hypnobirthing second time moms over the years.
Having a personalized instruction means years of experience and support from us.
+What if my birth companion cannot attend all or some of the classes?
Sometimes moms must come to class alone or they choose to bring an alternative support person, mother, friend, sister etc.
The primary birth companion should be supportive and willing to read the book. But plenty of mommas have rocked this work solo.
+Is HypnoBirthing helpful for people who need an induction? Cesarean? Pain medication?
Heck yes! HypnoBirthing is a philosophy that is applied to all sorts of variations of normal birth.
However your little one needs to enter the world, you wanna be present and calm, right?
HypnoBirthing helps you and your partner with that!
