Hypno-Childbirth Preparation in Three Sessions

Have a Peaceful, Calm Centered Birth. Trudy Beers Ph.D., Director of Tribeca Hypnosis & Healing Institute says, “Hypnochildbirth is one of my favorite sessions. My interest was piqued 15 years ago, when I wrote my thesis in Alternative Therapy while studying Hypnosis & Childbirth. Since then I have hypnotized many mothers to have a peaceful, calm and centered birth. I have been at home births, water births, and hospital births. Those experiences have proven to me that hypnosis is definitely an important tool for a comfortable, happy birthing.”

Hi Trudy.   Great to hear from you, and I’m glad you got the birth announcement!  I would be more than happy to write a testimonial for your website – your work was SO helpful in me getting through the birthing process.  And I was able to successfully have a medication/intervention-free birth, just like I wanted.

In fact, I used your tapes through-out my entire labor – I had your voice on repeat on my ipod, and it really helped me focus as well as block out any distractions.  It was one of my most important tools that night.

My midwives were also very impressed by my labor and how helpful your work was to me.  Sylvie Blaustien of Midwifery of Manhattan asked for your contact details, she is going to post your services in her guide, and I believe your contact info has already been passed along to a few other expecting moms.  So thank you for all your help!  I’ve also included a few photos of me and James – if you wouldn’t mind, please just don’t include my last name on your website.  I’ll work on a short paragraph and will send you something shortly.   Kelley

I have organized my preparation into a series of three sessions. I record each session and give the client an MP3 to use to go to sleep with and program their minds with whatever we are working on.

The First Session: Releasing All Fears (three hours)  All clients fill out an intake form which is quite extensive. I read this before my client’s first session as I am looking for clues to negative emotions, fears, or thoughts that could get in the way of an open and free mind. We then sit together and make a list of what negative emotions, habits, or experiences need to be released. Sometimes the mother had a negative experience with a previous birth and that needs to be addressed. Afterward we watch a DVD of hypnobirths so the expectant mother can watch an actual birthing experience using hypnosis as a tool. The actual hypnosis is 90 minutes in which I make an M3 of approximately 45 minutes so that my client can go to sleep with it at night, programming her mind with a safe, happy, healthy, calm and centered birth. I prefer the mother to be in her 6th-to-7th month, although I have worked with mothers even at one week before birthing.

The Second Session: Three Hypnosis Birthing Techniques (two hours)  Several hypnosis techniques are introduced as a possibility for the final birthing hypnosis. I want the expectant mother to choose which one she likes the best to use in the final MP3, continuing with new affirmations and tools that can be used during the birth. The mother is approximately eighth months pregnant.

The Third Session: The Birthing Partner (three hours)  The birthing partner is in charge of organizing the plan. I will present 50 pages of information for the planning, hospital, and all stages of the birth. The couple can then organize and think about the birth-making decisions before they get to that point, thinking about how they want the birth to be. I also show the partner a hypnobirth DVD in preparation for the birth. The partner is the protector at birth and handles all challenges that could disturb the mother. The partners are very united in this process and the information involves both of them in the birth at a very important level.

The final birthing MP3 actually takes the mother in her mind through a calm, peaceful birth from beginning to end. I also offer to hypnotize the partners if they’d like to have the experience during the final session. Using breathing techniques; allowing the body to relax; opening up with hypnosis; smiling every time there is a surge, the couple will envision their beautiful baby. It is as though you experience the birth before it happens. The mother’s full focus is to stay in a hypnotic trance and relaxed, allowing her body to open by listening to the MP3s and using the tools she has been taught. The last session ideally happens one month before the estimated due date.

All of the mothers that I work with are extremely happy with the process. In all instances, they are self-hypnotized and there is very little trauma. The births are calm and beautiful. Even if there is an emergency and natural birth is not possible, they are still relaxed by hypnosis and can focus on a healthy birth.

Another impressive result in all hypnobirths — the mothers tell me that their babies are born very calm, happy, and sleep soundly. I have a feeling that the hypnosis the baby experiences before birth gives them strength and encouragement during birth. By using hypnosis, the miracle of life – the birth of a child, can be even more of an amazing experience.

My hypnobirthing experience was very positive for both me and my husband. It also allowed my husband to take an active role in my pregnancy, but before I started hypnobirthing, I was consumed by the thoughts of how painful my delivery would be.
With Hypnobirthing, I was able to let go of all negative thoughts and relax and enjoy the remainder of my pregnancy. Even though I did not have a natural childbirth as planned, hypnobirthing helped me before and after my C-section. I used my deep breathing and relaxation to calm myself as I prepared for the C-section.
After the surgery I used what I learned to manage my pain; did not require anything stronger them Motrin while in the hospital; and was up and walking the next day and felt great. I also had mild PostPartum Depression for 3 weeks and when I had the time I would put myself into hypnosis and state that my feeling are normal and natural and will not last long.
I will be recommending thank you so very much,  Carla



Thank you Trudy for working with me during my third trimester of pregnancy to prepare me for childbirth. The sessions were both relaxing and informative, and helped me build my confidence that I could have an intervention-free, natural childbirth experience. And the recorded hypno-birthing sessions ended up being my most valuable tool during the labor and delivery of my baby! I had Trudy’s recordings on continual repeat on my iPod, and listened to them throughout my 11 hours of labor. It helped me relax, to tune out the hospital noises and nurses and commotion around me, and to just focus internally on getting through each contraction. I still felt pain, but I was calm and relaxed through the process, and I think it helped calm my baby through the process! My baby James was born healthy, bright-eyed, and calmly…with a big help from Trudy and her work. Thanks Trudy!
