What does Hypnosis feel like?
Have you ever had the experience of driving along the highway and suddenly realizing that you passed your exit several miles back? Or been so caught up in a book or movie or video game that you don’t even realize that someone has been speaking to you for the past several minutes? You were in hypnosis!
Daydreaming, falling asleep and waking up, “zoning out” – these are all states of hypnosis and everyone experiences these differently. In guided hypnosis sessions, we all experience hypnosis differently as well. Some people feel very light and “floaty”, some people feel very heavy, and some people are even hyper-aware of everything around them when they listen! Some people don’t “feel” or “experience” anything at all that is out of the ordinary for them while they are in hypnosis.
WHY hypnosis for childbirth?
Because in hypnosis you access your subconscious, the suggestible more powerful part of your mind where real, lasting change takes place. You may have heard it said that we only use 10% of our brain; hypnosis is a way to get access to that other 90%. Especially in habit and pain control, this eliminates any internal battle that may occur. Hypnobabies® is natural childbirth at its best!
Are Hypnobirthing and Hypnobabies the same thing?
Other natural childbirth courses have excellent programs and benefits that have helped many women have better, more relaxed births. Let’s talk about the unique benefits of Hypnobabies.
Hypnobabies is not a typical birth hypnosis class. Hypnobabies is very detailed, comprehensive and successful, uses medical hypnotic anesthesia techniques, from Gerald Kein’s powerful Painless Childbirth program. As opposed to simple visualization and imagery, Hypnobabies contains the same kinds of powerful somnambulistic hypnosis scripts used by people who undergo surgery successfully using hypnosis as their only anesthetic.
Before Hypnobabies classes start, Hypno-moms receive their first hypnosis CD with 2 tracks:
- Your Special Place – learn and become proficient in deep physical relaxation
- Easy, Comfortable Childbirth – easily master deep hypnosis and positive birth training
Hypno-Moms are able to learn deep relaxation and hypnosis skills for several weeks (or even months!) before Hypnobabies class even starts. This makes it much easier to learn Hypnobabies Hypno-anesthesia techniques in each class, bring your Birth Partner into the preparation, (if you have one) and also how to use hypnosis for many other issues: nausea elimination, back and hip pain, insomnia, pre-term labor, pre-term bleeding, perineal massage, internal exams, turning a breech baby, etc.
Hypnobabies provides detailed, comprehensive training for Birth Partners by providing:
- A Birth Partner’s hypnosis CD for a calm and confident attitude towards pregnancy and childbirth
- A 15-page detailed Birth Partner’s Guide booklet which helps them fully grasp their role in the preparation for baby’s birth and how to easily support the Hypno-Mom during birthing including 4 pages of verbal birthing cues which keep the Hypno-Mom in hypnosis during first stage, transition, beginning to push and the pushing phase
Hypnobabies can be very successfully used by Single Mothers or those whose partners will not be participating in their birth preparation process. Specific CD sets as well as personal help and support for single Hypno-Moms, makes their Hypnobabies journey easier and more fulfilling. All Hypno-anesthesia techniques can be easily learned, practiced and used alone, with a Birth Partner or doula.
Hypnobabies classes provide complete childbirth education and is the only birth hypnosis program that does so! Providing a *Complete Childbirth Education* ensures that there is no need to take other childbirth education classes where techniques and philosophies can negate childbirth hypnosis instruction.
Hypnobabies uses “Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis”, which allows Hypno-moms to walk, talk and move around freely while remaining very comfortable, relaxed, fully present, aware and in touch with her body and baby. Other programs rely on immobility for focus and concentration, which can severely impede the progress of labor, descent and positioning of the baby.
Hypnobabies has a full Birthing Time rehearsal in class # 6 so that Hypno-moms have experience using their actual Hypnobabies techniques and many different labor positions while in hypnosis. Additionally, Birth Partners get to experience hands-on, exactly how to use his/her cues and assistance. This has been a huge factor in success rates for those using the Hypnobabies program!
Certified Hypnobabies Instructors are required to be have a fully trained background in Childbirth and a minimum of 50 hours of Hypnosis training before becoming accepted into the rigorous Hypnobabies Instructor Training Program and eligible for. This ensures a Hypnobabies Instructor is able to address all childbirth questions and concerns, assess hypnotic depth and problems such as resistance and abreaction during hypnosis can easily be handled.
Hypnobabies Instructors are always available for help before, during and after your Hypno-baby is born. Hypnobabies also has a free online Hypnobabies Moms support group attended by certified Hypnobabies Instructors for support and encouragement so that you can enjoy a community where others are using Hypnobabies for Childbirth as well.
Hypnobabies is an empowering choice for any woman wanting Hypnosis for Childbirth that works easily and beautifully!
When is the best time to start Hypnobabies classes?
It is recommended to start Hypnobabies classes no later than 32 weeks pregnant to provide enough time to complete the program.
Can I use the Hypnobabies Home Study Program and still work with Kelly?
Yes! The Home Study Advantage Class is the perfect add-on to the Home Study Program. You complete the Home Study Program, on your own with your birthing partner. You touch base each week with Kelly to ask questions and get answers. Once you complete the Home Study Program you attend a Home Study Advantage class with Kelly to do a full birth rehearsal and ensure you have a full understanding of the entire program, all the Hypnobabies hypnosis tools.
