Hypnobabies Childbirth Ed + Birth Hypnosis
offering private classes & virtual self-study(new!)
YOUR COMPLETE BIRTH EDUCATION PROGRAM
Hypnobabies® is very successful 6 week, 3-hours per week complete childbirth education course that also teaches medical-grade somnambulistic hypnosis techniques (aka hypno-anesthesia - this is what’s used when preparing for surgery without any drugs), imagery, and visualization to re-set the inner mind and expectations around birth in a very positive way. This helps loosen and, in my cases, eliminate discomfort and fear from the birthing experience. With adequate preparation and in the absence of special circumstances, our Hypno-moms can experience more comfortable, shorter, and easier births. And, if there is an unforeseen change of plans, Hypnobabies has that covered, too! From Day 1, the Glow Mama Hypnobabies program builds in, practices, and also provides specific tools and resources that address fear release, presence, and centeredness should there be a special circumstance. O, and there is also a specific recorded self-hypnosis track and script that will be provided to have available just in case. We’ve got you covered, Mama.
Our classes also teach Dads & Partners or support members (like a doula, family member, etc) how to fully support the Hypno-Moms every step of the way through pregnancy, birth day, and postpartum. And if there’s not a partner - no problem! Hypnobabies is also used very successfully by single supermoms.
This holistic childbirth education + childbirth hypnosis program (myth busting meets keeping it real) reminds a woman how to work with her body and how to use extremely effective tools that self-activate deep relaxation which allows for self-hypnosis and “flow” into a more comfortable, safer, and empowered birthing experience. And, as a cornerstone, couples will also be prepared with comprehensive knowledge so that they can support each other and make informed decisions with their care providers no matter the birthing circumstances. This program covers: birth education, deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, an EXCELLENT series of mp3 tracks that coordinate and align with the program, visualization, and affirmations - all packaged in an easy-to-follow, week-to-week framework for you.
Hypnobabies is recommended for the late 2nd trimester & beyond (5/6 months and beyond). The average class size is 3-6 couples and the investment is the total cost for the entire series.

Virtual Option ($175 with additional Glow Mama add-on option available for $225 providing in-person 1x1 program support)
The Hypnobabies self-study (virtual) program is the only virtual childbirth education/hypnosis program (“hypnobirth”) that I can put a personal recommendation behind. The program costs about $175 and you get immediate access to the full 6-week course content, the full Hypnobabies series of mp3 tracks that align with the program, and it's 100% virtual. This is the same core content and tracks you'd get if you were in an in-person 6 week Hypnobabies class with me. This option is 100% virtual and does not include the Home Study Advantage or Glow Mama Glow Series®
Curious about the self-study option? Check out the Hypnobabies Interactive Course Demo.
$225 ADD-ON // For additional in-person and guided support: For additional support with the program, you can also separately purchase the Glow Mama Hynobabies Home Study Advantage for $225 which includes frequent check-ins with me to answer questions and help keep you on track through your program, a subscription to Motherboard Birth ($50 value), the Glow Mama Supplemental Glow Series® (which includes additional information developed by me and other current leading birth professional experts on key topics like medical rights, informed choice, a deeper lens into how hypnosis and neurolinguistic programming work in the birth space among other important highlights) and it also includes an in-person "birth day rehearsal" that we can schedule to your convenience at your home or at my office in Westlake once you near the end of the 6 week program. This in-person walk-through simulates a "real-life" pulling together of all the tools and resources when it's "birthday time."
