Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis Classes

2017 Schedule Update:

Contact me for information on private classes or Home Study Advantage classes in 2017.

All class materials are included in the price of the class.  To order other Hypnobabies recordings or to order Home Study materials, go to the Hypnobabies Store.

I am so excited that Hypnobabies has released its 7th edition of materials!  You can read the Top Ten Reasons Why We Love the Hypnobabies 7th Edition here.

I had the unique experience of being a Hypnobabies instructor and Hypno-doula for several years before using Hypnobabies myself.  I first became interested in teaching Hypnobabies when I saw some amazing Hypnobabies births early in my doula career.  These births really changed my perception of what birth could be.  I was also very interested in staying as comfortable as I could for my own births while not using pain medication.  During my pregnancy, I practiced my techniques as much as I could and used my hypnosis tools to block out anything negative surrounding birth.  My birth was amazing, comfortable, and joyous.  The day I birthed my son was the happiest day of my life, thanks to Hypnobabies.  Even now, my husband and I are still discovering ways that Hypnobabies helped me to have a positive pregnancy and birth experience.  I'm so blessed that I have been able to gain experience first as a Hypno-doula, an instructor, and finally, a Hypno-mom!

The Wake County classes are held in Cary at Whole Family Chiropractic on the corner of Harrison Avenue and Maynard Road.

Hypnobabies® is a six-week series taught by certified Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis Instructors (HCHI). Each class is 3.5 hours in length.
