What is Hypnobabies?


Hypnobabies is one of the most sought-after childbirth education courses in the country.


It is a comprehensive source for information about pregnancy, birth, and the immediate postpartum period. What sets Hypnobabies apart is how it uses state-of-the-art hypnosis techniques to create ease and comfort in childbirth. No other childbirth education course so powerfully uses your brilliantly designed mind to unlock a positive experience! This class is taught by Amy Willson, Certified Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis instructor and doula.


In-person classes


Hypnobabies uses powerful, medical-grade hypnosis techniques to transform the sensations of birthing from being experienced as pain to being experienced as pressure and stretching. The unique "Eyes-Open" childbirth hypnosis tools enable the birthing mother to be as active, engaged, and aware as she wants to be during her baby's birth!

The proven methods for learning these hypnosis tools include:

  • Hypnosis scripts to be read to you by your birth partner
  • Relaxing audio tracks for practicing the tools
  • Written materials for understanding how hypnosis works with our minds to cause positive change
  • Fear-clearing sessions
  • Verbal cues for entering and deepening your hypnosis, and for instant physical comfort

In addition to the materials for learning the hypnosis tools, Hypnobabies classes include extensive information on:

  • The anatomy of childbirth
  • Maintaining a healthy pregnancy through exercise and nutrition
  • Mindfulness for peaceful pregnancy and birthing
  • Positions for birthing
  • Creating your birth plan
  • Risks and benefits of common medical procedures
  • Breastfeeding and newborn care
  • And much, much more!

We will also have a full birth rehearsal during which you and your partner can practice the hypnosis tools and find comfortable birthing positions.

Private classes are available upon request.

Amy’s Hypnobabies classes were AWESOME. I looked forward to going every week. The classes not only helped me prepare, but to just relax and let go of my fears.

Amy is so great! She does a great job answering any questions and helping you feel comfortable. Her class helped me to stay calm all through my natural birth. It was very smooth and beautiful!
