Everyone deserves a song

Everyone deserves a song

It was very early in the morning on Easter Sunday. My plans were interrupted. I remember being irritated that the Hospital was keeping me from my wife. She was bleeding and it didn’t look good. I walked back and forth in the lobby aimlessly until they waved me through. The doctor didn’t have any emotion on his face. I felt numb. The baby didn’t make it. Our first pregnancy had ended in a miscarriage.

3 Reasons I was Skeptical to try Hypnobabies (From a Birth Partner's Perspective)

3 Reasons I was Skeptical to try Hypnobabies (From a Birth Partner's Perspective)

When Amy told me that she was going to use Hypnobabies for the birth of our son, I was skeptical. It sounded weird, and I wasn’t sure that it was legitimate. I’ve personally been scammed by many self-proclaimed “magic cures”, or “spiritual solutions”, and wasn’t excited about rehearsing scripts and memorizing cues.  

My main points of concern as her birth partner were: 

1. Is hypnosis a legitimate tool for birth or anything else?  

2. Has it worked for other people?   

3. Will it work for us?  

It turns out that hypnosis isn’t what super villains use to brainwash people; it’s a scientifically proven technique. 

There are hundreds of positive testimonies from those who have used Hypnobabies. 

After our experience with Hypnobabies, I can say it absolutely was beneficial to our birth. The greatest benefit has been practicing with tools that really do work.  They’ve been proven to work. And, with practice, you get better and better. This creates confidence and beats back fear which is the enemy of a peaceful birth.  

The results have been undeniable. Hypnobabies has completely transformed our birth experience.

FAQ Series Part 2: Does my Partner Need to Come to Class?

Yes.

Your partner should come to as many Hypnobabies classes as possible. We have special information, tracks, and roles just for them. Students who cannot bring their partner may bring another trusted family member, friend, or doula. Although it's perfectly possible to use the program successfully without a support person, it's best if at least one person who will be present during the birth be able to attend the classes so they know best how to support the birthing mother. (I will say that I've heard of the occasional mom who rocks out with Hypnobabies completely on her own, and that's great too!)

Don't Worry. Partners Love Hypnobabies.

Many partners feel understandably trepidatious about birth in general, and may be hesitant to make a decent investment into a childbirth education class. However, Hypnobabies proves to be invaluable to partners, and gives them solid, easy, reliable ways to assist the birthing mother. Even the most skeptical of birth partners are soon won over, often during the first class. In fact, partners usually end up being huge cheerleaders for Hypnobabies!
