I just read an article which says that Kourtney ” recently claimed that she is planning a drug-free hypno-birthing.”

That is great!  I wonder which hypnosis for childbirth program she is using?

Hypnobabies is a great choice because it has medical grade hypnosis and so many tracks to listen to and so many hypno-tools.

Maybe she will join the Hypnobabies Yahoo Group and get support from the moms there and read all the awesome birth stories moms share!

6. Keep mother and baby together – it’s best for mother, baby, and breastfeeding – lead author Jeannette Crenshaw, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, IBCLC, LCCE, FACCE

This is so important.  Hypnobabies talks about birthing stage 2.5, the time right after the baby is born is the ideal time for baby to be with mom.  Keeping baby with mom helps both of them adjust to this new situation.  We even teach moms to make a Baby Plan after explaining the routine things done to babies and the pros and cons.  Mom and Dad can choose what they want for THEIR baby.

5. Avoid giving birth on the back and follow the body’s urges to push - lead author Joyce DiFranco, RN, BSN, LCCE, FACCE

We teach about many different positions moms can push in.  Upright is better, because it opens the pelvis more and gravity can also assist in the baby descending.

We also teach about mother directed pushing.  Purple pushing (yelling 1, 2, 3, 4…) is not a necessary thing for un-medicated moms.  It is better for mom to follow her body and push in a way that feels best for her!

3. Bring a loved one, friend, or doula for continuous support - lead authors Jeanne Green, MT, CD(DONA), LCCE, FACCE, and Barbara A. Hotelling, MSN, CD(DONA), LCCE, FACCE

We learn about this in class 3 and we teach the birth partner how to provide the best support throughout the Hypnobabies Class series.  It is very helpful for mom to have someone their to support her continuously throughout her birthing time.  Ideally this person will know about her hypnosis tools and cues.

For single moms without this option, Hypnobabies is actually a great choice as well, because it is set up so a single mom can do it on her own.  With the CDs you will have the continuous support of Kerry’s voice throughout your birth as well.

2. Walk, move around, and change positions throughout labor - lead author Teri Shilling, MS, CD(DONA), IBCLC, LCCE, FACCE

Another great tool to help your birthing time go more quickly and easily.

Hypnobabies is great, because it is eyes open childbirth hypnosis.  Moms using Hypnobabies are able to open their eyes, walk, talk, shower, sit on birth balls, do pretty much anything!  By following their body in moving to different positions, it helps their baby move down and out more quickly!

Avoid Interventions

4. Avoid interventions that are not medically necessary - lead author Judith A. Lothian, RN, PhD, LCCE, FACCE

My favorite class to teach is class 3, when we cover all the choices a mom may have before, during and after her birthing time.  We talk about the pros and cons and that way mom and dad will know when an intervention is necessary.

Often while birthing in a hospital, they offer interventions to everyone, whether needed or not.  It is just their routine.  If you educate yourself on your choices, it will help you to know what the best decision for YOU is!
