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.

Is HypnoMothering for You?

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" creates a course to ease the adjustments of motherhood.

Moms with babies under 3 years: This version of HypnoMothering is designed to help mothers find balance and energy throughout the early years of motherhood.

Is HypnoMothering More than Self-Hypnosis Techniques?

Yes. A HypnoMothering class provides insight and encouragement for every mom at any point on her mothering journey. HypnoMothering aims to equip each mom to clarify her basic needs during baby’s early months, and feel empowered to create her optimum support system. The class explores social and cultural pressures around mothering, and invites each mother to balance the information overflow while acting confidently on her own mothering instincts.

“This course is an amazing addition to any childbirth and parenting courses. The program offers a safe and neutral space for mother’s to explore their feelings and release difficult emotions through safe, simple, and easy methods. Any mom at any stage of motherhood can benefit from these teachings!”
