self-hypnosis for birthing, AND it is a complete childbirth education course, covering the same topics taught in other childbirth classes, and more!

HYPNOBABIES mothers are never "asleep." They are fully aware, in control of their birthing bodies, and in tune with their babies.

HYPNOBABIES moms are able to move around and talk throughout the entire birthing process, while remaining deeply in self-hypnosis, which automatically creates powerful anesthesia in their birthing bodies, the same hypno-anesthesia used for surgeries!
