I love reading on other blogs how moms decide to use Hypnobabies and then follow along through their pregnancy.
I recently found a blog where a mom goes into a really in depth explanation of why she is doing Hypnobabies. She also answers some questions she has gotten about the program.
Here is one of the questions she answers.
Does Learning Hypnobabies take a lot of time & energy?
Time: yes. Energy: no. And my guess is that for many of you the time factor would be the biggest downside. I’d say it is for me. The total amount of time it takes every day is about 60 minutes, not including listening to the Joyful Pregnancy Affirmations (which I don’t count because I listen as I fall asleep and doing so doesn’t take up more time for me, in fact, it often helps me relax and fall asleep more quickly!)
And truthfully, I started the course very early (about week 18) so that I could give myself more time, if need be. It is a 5-week course but you can make it a 10-week course (taking 2 weeks for each class instead of one) if you want to. I think I actually should have done this. You’re supposed to listen to a track each and every day. I work to do so 5 days a week. Since I know that I’ll still have at least 15 weeks to continue to learn and review, I figure I’m perfectly fine. You also need time to practice and time to read from the course book.
The course has a maintenance program that is key to continue doing even after the official course is finished. Practice makes perfect and that is especially true with this. Once you start the course, you need to to take time each day until baby is born to practice.
Regarding taking energy: heck no! In fact, taking time to relax and practice each day will actually give you MORE energy. Even on days when I wish I had time to nap, my half-hour of listening to my track allows me to relax and recharge.

Here are just a few of the other questions she answers.
- Doesn’t hypnosis mean you can’t move? I wouldn’t want to have to stay in one place during my birthing time…
- Doesn’t using hypnosis mean I won’t be aware of what’s going on around me? I don’t want to miss this wonderful experience.
- So, I listen to a track and practice a couple times a day? Is that all Hypnobabies does?
