Q: When should I start HypnoBirthing Classes?
A: There is no firm time however from 20 weeks on is recommended. We find most parents like to start their HypnoBirthing preparations between 20 – 35 weeks. The sooner you start the more time you will have to practice.
Q: Does my partner have to attend the classes?
A: We recommend that partners attend all HypnoBirthing classes wherever possible, along with an additional support person. The support person can be a doula or family member who will attend classes with you and assist with your practice.
Q: Can I just do a weekend class?
A: It is not recommended as part of the HypnoBirthing program in order to achieve optimal benefits. A weekend course can create information overload.
This program has been thoughtfully designed over the 5 sessions to release fears and have positive preparation. We want you to have the best birth you can, so we would be shortchanging you by working with you over a weekend. The 5 session format is definitely best for learning, results and preparing for a happy, calm birth.
** The exception is when you are very late in your pregnancy where only part of the program can be covered to help you in the best way we can to achieve the best outcome for your birth.
