Hypnobabies Childbirth Education Course 

 
Hypnobabies is a Complete Childbirth Education Course.  There is no need to "supplement" with any other kind of childbirth education because we really HAVE IT ALL!   Each course lasts 6 weeks, and meets one day a week for 3 1/2 hours.  I recommend beginning the course when you are between 25-30 weeks pregnant so that you will have sufficient time to complete the course before the arrival of your baby.  Each class will consist of up to 4 hypno-moms and their birth partners.

Because of scheduling conflicts, some moms choose to complete the Hypnobabies Home Study Course.  The Home Study Course can be ordered through the Hypnobabies website.  It takes 5 weeks to complete, and includes all of the reading materials and hypnosis CDs that you need to be successful in the program, as well as practice schedules each week so that you can learn all of the hypnosis cues and techniques that Hypnobabies offers in order to have a comfortable, relaxing birth experience.

Home Study Course students may contact me to do a special class for them and their birth partners once they have completed the Home Study Course.  This includes a birth rehearsal so you can see your hypnosis skills in action in labor/birth positions (fantastic for visualizing your birth and helping you and your birth partner know how to best work together in your birthing time), a review of the Birth Partner's Guide and answering any further questions you have.  The Home Study Advantage class takes about 3 hours to complete.  It can be done in 2 sessions or 1, depending on your schedule.

I am also available to answer any questions you might have as you complete the Home Study Course.

Home Study Advantage Class Fee: $75

Schedule: Any evening or Saturday morning when my regular class series are not in session.
