A gentle transition to motherhood

FAQs

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a safe, natural state of selective, focused attention. When we enter into this absorbed state of hypnosis, we can use our thoughts, talents and experiences in ways not usually available to us. Typically people in hypnosis feel fully aware and very relaxed. No previous background with hypnosis is necessary to get full benefit from HypnoMothering.

Who is HypnoMothering For?

Moms to be: The original HypnoMothering class format was created to prepare women for a gentle transition into motherhood. Taken while pregnant with her first baby, a mom-to-be maps a course to ease the adjustments of motherhood.
Moms with babies under 2 years: This version of HypnoMothering is designed to help mothers find balance and energy throughout the early years of motherhood.
Moms of preschoolers and beyond: This extension of HypnoMothering provides all the basics of the original program, and brings special tools for mothers of preschoolers through early elementary age.

Testimonials

Moms Say . . .

 

“It’s wonderful – best thing I’ve done all pregnancy!”

“Hypnobirthing was wonderful and useful, but hypnomothering is truly indispensable to me.”

“By FAR my favorite class of the entire hypno-series. The content was spot on and I loved the interactive nature of it. It being women-only made it feel like a really sacred time. Really helped address some fears that were starting to surface, and as always, I appreciate the practical “toolbox” of visualizations, breathing techniques, and recordings that I can take with me.”

“HypnoMothering was the perfect finale for the Hypnobirthing class experience. It helped me think beyond the birth about the kind of challenges I’ll face as a new mom and how I want to be proactive in calmly meeting those challenges. HypnoMothering gave me a practical set of tools to rely on when stress and anxiety threaten to overwhelm. I feel much more prepared to be the kind of mama I’ve always hoped to be–one who can model kindness, patience, self-care, and perhaps above all, a peaceful way of handling even the most difficult moments.”

“I love knowing that I now have the tools and resources in my mommy tool belt to deal with little sleep, frustration, feelings of inadequacy, and exhaustion! This was a wonderful course and I would suggest it to anyone whether they were expecting their first or fourth child.”

“I really really enjoyed it.  The all female environment allowed us to let our guard down, and provided a certain intimacy that is lacking in parent groups.”

“Fantastic, realistic preparation for welcoming baby and the life changes that come with it.  Outlook was accepting and nourishing and set the tone for how we should treat ourselves during the transition phase.”

“The hypnomothering class really made me confident and helped to relax me as I start my 3rd trimester. Up until now most of the focus has been on the actual birth and not much has been talked about regarding what happens after. The class really gave me the tools to feel confident and excited about the next phase.”

“Wonderful class – I have been given some really useful tools which I am looking forward to incorporating in every day life. Very practical and realistic advice. I look forward to feeling and being a calmer and happier mother/wife. The tutor…was so warm, understanding and helpful – I am SO glad I did this course!”

“HypnoMothering helped me feel prepared to deal with the stresses and anxiety that comes along with parenting. Knowing ways to deal with the emotional side effects will be so helpful and has taken away the anxiety I was already feeling before taking this class.”

“HypnoMothering was an excellent class that breached a subject that is SO needed before baby gets here. As a fellow pre and postnatal practitioner I see countless women who move through pregnancy with so much support, yet after baby is born, their support is nil. So many women struggle during this period because of it. This being said, I think HypnoMothering is a priceless class, with excellent information and direction.”

“It was a wonderful class! It was a great extension of the HypnoBirthing class. I already have a two year old and am expecting a baby in less then a week. I am looking forward to using these downloads and the things I learned in the class to help relieve some the anxiety I get instead of turning to medications.”

“It was a wonderful way to connect with like-minded mamas. I love mind-body techniques and am excited to incorporate HypnoMothering into my repertoire. What a caring, compassionate, and meaningful tool for motherhood! THANK YOU!”
