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.

  • Fewer complications and interventions, as the body and mind stay completely relaxed during labor

Frequently Asked Questions about Hypnobabies

Q)What is the difference between a regular Hypnobabies birth and a regular Hypno-birth?

A) Please see Hypnobabies® Unique Benefits. (click Here) for information on this very important question.

Q) When should I start Hypnobabies® Classes?

A) Anytime! Some women take classes early in their pregnancy, and practicing Hypnobabies® helps them to be relaxed, comfortable and confident for the rest of their pregnancies. Others start later, at 6 or 7 months, when they know they can devote 30-40 minutes daily to practicing. 

Q) Can my Birth Partner come to Hypnobabies® Class with me?

A) Yes! We teach the Birth Partner right along with our Hypno-Moms - what hypnosis is, (they experience it in class and get their own Birth Partner’s hypnosis CD, to keep them calm and relaxed about pregnancy and childbirth!) and how to support and help our Hypno-moms during pregnancy the birthing itself and after the baby comes. They participate fully in each class, and with each hypnosis script.

Q) Will I be able to move around and be awake, and aware of my body and my baby during my labor, using hypnosis?

A) Absolutely! Being in Hypnobabies’ “Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis" is not like being asleep or detached from the sensations of your baby’s birth. You are awake and aware of everything going on around you, and you experience baby’s every movement. You remain deeply in hypnosis, confident and calm, even while moving and changing positions. Your Hypnobabies® hypno-anesthesia allows you to experience all the power of childbirth without the discomfort.

Q) How does hypnosis for childbirth work?

A) Short version: Like computer data entry. If you want to create a document to use later, you open one, enter the text and save the contents in a “file”, then give the file a name. Later, when you want to edit that document, you find the file name and open it, add to the document text and save it again. When you are completely finished with your document, you find the file by its name, complete and ready, and print it out for your use.

In Hypnobabies® , our “files” are our medical hypno-anesthesia “scripts” in the form of CD tracks and paper scripts, and all you have to do is *listen* to them. In doing so, you train your inner mind, just like entering text, what to accept. Each week, you add a little bit of training, just like the text in your document, and your inner mind creates a new belief system about childbirth. It accepts that the normal birthing sensations that you will have when you give birth; pushing, pulling, stretching, pressure sensations, will indeed be there, but without discomfort attached to them. You train it to accept cues and techniques to bring you deeper into relaxation and hypnosis, and when you use them on your birthing day, just like printing out your document, they are there for you automatically! Your mind is very powerful and is capable of creating the deepest physical relaxation possible as well as a very comfortable birthing experience. Use it!

A) Long version: Ask  for  a FREE Introduction to Hypnobabies® CD, with a 20 minute explanation of what hypnosis and Hypnobabies® are, and a special gift – our “Relax Me” hypnosis session, which allows you to actually experience deep relaxation and a hypnotic state, as well as learn a special cue that trains you to become calm and relaxed in any situation, which you can use for the rest of your life!

Want the full Scoop on Krystle?...

I have been a Nurse for 15 years, CNA and Med/PT assistant for 4 years prior to that. I began my training in high school knowing I had a genuine desire to  help people.  After graduating from nursing school I married my wonderful husband Arturo. I started my nursing career on the medical floor and gained a great deal of valuable knowledge about, not only medicine but myself. I learned I wanted to work in preventive medicine. About the time I knew that I wanted change my  focus to woman's health,  I had become pregnant with my first child. My first child came into the world with with traditional hospital birth. I was dedicated to breast fedding and it was a struggle initially. She breast fed into my second pregnancy. The second time around, I knew I was going to stand strong in my belief that my birthing would be much easier and I would be armed with techniques stave off avoidable interventions. So I got busy researching the best childbirth preparation I could find. When I found Hypnobabies I was struck by two things. For one, the mind is reprogrammed to be confident in the bodies natural ability to birth easily and comfortably. Two, was the use of the same hypno-anesthesia that is used in the medical field. I researched this further and found many  medical sources that explained  and advocated for the use of hypno-anesthesia. I was sold. I used  Hypnobabies and had the  birth of my dreams. My birth was easy and comfortable. I have been teaching and supporting Hypnobabies and other birthing mothers for since 2008! Since then, I have been and RN certified in high risk obstetrics while working on labor and delivery, certified in neonatal resuscitation, work in a free standing birth center providing lactation counseling, birth assistance, and project management, and now offering consultation to employers to support nursing mother in the workforce.

My Hypnobabies Birth Story:

My birthing time began in the same manor as my first, with pressure waves every 10-15 minutes for about two days. These pressure waves were just as intense as the ones when I was in transition, they were just farther apart. On the second evening of pressure waves I noticed them getting closer together. I read good night stories to G. Having to stop a few times during the pressure waves. When they were gone I would just continue on.  I said good night to my mom and dad, lied down in bed, had my husband massaging my back and I put on my Hypnobabies CD's with my IPOD. Soon my dad had gone and everyone was asleep. I felt things becoming even more intense. I put my mental light switch in "center" position, allowing me to move around comfortably, and I got out of bed. I was extremely surprised that I had been relaxing there for two hours. It felt like thirty minutes. I went to the bathroom, then to the couch.  I turned my mental light switch to "off" and listened to more Hypnobabies CD's on my IPOD. I was able to relax in that position until the tracks I was listening to were over. At that point, I was in "center" position I would walk to the bathroom sit on the toilet  and have two pressure waves right on top of each other, then I would walk to the couch and lay down or sit. I was repeating this for awhile. I was noticing lots of bloody show. I believe this was when I was in transition. This was the most intense time. This was brief and I just went to the couch to relax while my mom was timing my pressure waves. They were every one and half to three minutes. My mother called my dad to notify him that he needed to get ready to return to the house to stay with my sleeping child. She also called the midwives while I sat on the couch. We were all unsure if it was the right time to go to the birth center, beacause I was so comfortable. My dad arrived at our house. After a birthing wave, I suddenly got off the couch and announced that it was time to go. My body knew and let me know. My pressure waves were so close I stopped every 5-6 steps to relax through them. I got into the front seat and buckled in I had a body pillow against the window that I was laying against, with my IPOD playing Hypnobabies. I looked like I was asleep. 

We got to the birth center, I stayed in my comfortable  spot in the front seat while my bags where unloaded. My birthing day track was in the CD player in the room. I got out of the car and walked up the steps of the birth center. It was dawn the sky was a beautiful shade of blue and the air was so cool on my body. I smiled as a began walking up the front steps to the porch thinking, "This is were I am going to have my baby this morning." I continued into the birth center The nurse and Midwife were already there. As I walked up the stairs I stopped with one foot on  the next step and one below smiling at the midwife waiting for me at the top. I was just smiling through a  pressure wave that she had no idea I was having. When I got to the top she put her hand on my shoulder and said, " You look so beautiful." The nurse had stated she was going to go get coffee. She didn't even believe I was in labor. The midwife asked her to wait until she checked my cervix. I was 7 centimeters. The nurse then stated, " I guess I am not going anywhere." An IV was started while I was standing and relaxing through pressure waves. I was walking around the room rocking back and forth while holding my husband. I got into bed and leaned over the head board. I was beginning to bear down with my pressure waves. I was completely comfortable and calm doing what my body told me to.

I reached over and skipped to the  final Hypnobabies track "Pushing baby out." I lied down on the bed as if I was asleep and I was so comfortable. I got a feeling that I needed to get out of bed. So I did. I walked to the foot of the bed and squatted down on the hard wood floor. I, felt fullness, reached down and discovered that the fullness I was feeling was my baby's head, now about to crown. I told my mom to notify the midwife. My husband squatted down beside me with his hand on my back. The midwife and nurse came in. There was no room between the bed and me so the midwife squatted down beside me. She asked if I needed any help I shook my head, "no". I could feel a slight stretching sensation. I put both hands between my legs and pushed my baby out into them. I pulled her to my chest and stood up holding her on my chest. I walked to the top of the bed and lied down with my baby, her cord still attached and pulsating. My husband joined us I put her near my breast and she immediately began breastfeeding. I smiled at my husband.I knew within minutes of her first breaths I was going to bring Hypnobabies to as many mother's-to-be that I could. Soon after big sister woke up at her regular time and she came to meet the new baby girl. G crawled into bed with new sister, dad, and me, and we took our first family-of-four picture. 


S weighed 9 lbs 5oz. Her birthing was exactly as I had visualized it to be during my Hypnobabies training. She was born at the exact time... down to the minute!  My husband was on the exact side, and I was in the exact position that I had visualized months prior. 

The easy, joyous, and comfortable birth you want is possible.
