Hypnobabies is a method of hypnobirthing and childbirth preparation that teaches medical-grade hypnosis techniques, imagery and visualization to re-train the inner mind. Hypnosis in childbirth helps to lessen or eliminate discomfort and fear from the birthing experience. With adequate preparation, and in the absence of complications, our Hypno-students can experience calmer, more comfortable, shorter and easier births.
Hypnobabies Childbirth Class
Each series consists of 6 classes meeting for 3 hours each week for 6 weeks. Class materials include a manual, home-play book, hypnosis scripts and hypnosis tracks. Our Hypnobabies Class meets in-person in Northeast LA at Sparrow’s Nest.
Hypnosis tracks and scripts are used prenatally and in labor to eliminate discomfort and promote relaxation.

“I used Hypnobabies in my second birth, and it was truly the reason that I achieved the birth that I wanted. I am excited to share this tool with people who want to approach their birth with intention and trust.
The prenatal work is mostly about staying consistent with listening to the hypnosis tracks on a daily basis starting from about 32 or 33 weeks. This daily practice is definitely a commitment, but so important to achieving hypnosis in birth. This daily practice also helped me connect to my pregnancy and slow down. It felt really good to unwind with the hypnosis tracks at the end of my day.” – Sara Hoke, Owner of Village Birth
