Hypnobirthing vs. Hypnobabies - Page 2

post #21 of 26

I thought and had been reading that "Hypnobabies" are babies born using the hypnobirthing technique. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Hypnobabies is an entirely different birth hypnosis program. You can read more about it here www.hypnobabies.com. Hypnobabies uses medical hypno-anesthesia as opposed to just relaxation used in HypnoBirthing. There is a glove relaxation technique used in HypnoBirthing but IMO it does not work as well and you don't get the glove relaxation scripts to practice with at home. That is what is so great about Hypnobabies. If you take a Hypnobabies course with an instructor you get the scripts on paper and on CD tp practice at home. The home study course has the CD's that you can practice with and they work well.

So it seems that hypnobabies is a self taught course

I could sign up for a hypnobirthing class taught by a CNM
Has anyone taken a course in hypnobirthing - it seems like 12 hrs of class work .


but then maybe i should use the money to buy the hypnobabies course?
not sure what to do !

any more feedback from those who have taken the hypnobirthing classes?

Thanks Noelia!
I have decided to order hypnobabies when I get some $ - i heard they don't like people to sell the course used on ebay etc. you have to call them directly to get a used one if they deem you financially unable to buy the new set .

I also have been hearing about a 3rd hypnosis course - hypbirth. Anyone know how it compares to hypnobabies?

i just wanted to add that i too was kinda confused by all the variations out there-but we settled on hypnobabies, feeling it was the most complete/well-rounded program. We started our classes this past week-I do better being taught than learning on my own My class WITH materials is $150 (5 weeks of class, 3hours each class)To buy the homestudy course new is like $140ish I think. So it's possible to find a class comparable to homestudy-hypnobabies is NOT just homestudy.

I am so loving it, ps

okay bumping b/c I posted a thread about this and didnt' even realize there was a difference. For my first, I just took a natural-birth-oriented class that focused on education (with the idea that knowledge led to less fear and to less pain) and reframing how we think of birth, and some positioning and coping methods. I did read one book about visualization that really helped me (even without practicing much) so I thought of this. With the price tag and word "course" attached to it, it sounds so expensive and time-consuming though. How did it help you? how much time did it take? Do you need the whole set? Is it better to take a course with an instructor? :
