What is HypnoMothering®?

HypnoMothering® is a fun, practical, 2.5 hour class, which teaches mothers easy and fast self-hypnosis techniques to make the most of limited sleep, keep calm and balanced on challenging days, and find focus and mindfulness amidst the myriad of feelings that mothers face.

Rather than focusing on how things “should” go after you have had a baby, it instead teaches how to not just survive your post partum time, but also enjoy it!

 

Is HypnoMothering® part of the HypnoBirthing® course?

HypnoMothering® is the perfect class to complement the HypnoBirthing® classes (regardless of if these were done with me or with another practitioner), but it is actually also open to all pregnant mothers, and new mothers, regardless of if you’ve done the HypnoBirthing® course or not.

Although it isn’t part of the original HypnoBirthing® course, it is approved and encouraged by HypnoBirthing® International as an extra 2.5 hour class, meant to complement their original 5 classes.

 

Can I do the HypnoMothering® class if I haven’t done the HypnoBirthing® course?

Of course! It is a stand-alone class, and although it works well with the HypnoBirthing® course, it can be done without any other HypnoBirthing experience.

 

When do I do the HypnoMothering® class?

The HypnoMothering® class can be done when you are pregnant, or after your baby has been born. I teach the classes separately for pregnant mothers, and post partum mothers, as the two classes vary slightly, due to the mothers having different needs at these two times. However if you have done the class when you were pregnant, you don’t need to do the post partum one, as it covers the same topics, just from different angles.

Personally, I think it’s a fantastic class to do while you are still pregnant, as it will help give you tips on how to plan for your postpartum time, giving you a great head start. However if you didn’t get a chance to do the class while you were pregnant, you’ll still get a LOT out of doing this class after baby is born.

I’ve had 4 kids, and I did the practitioner training when my youngest was 2.5 and I spent the whole time in awe, thinking, “I wish I had’ve done this when I was pregnant!”. The class is such a great resource for planning your post partum and helping you deal with issues that come with becoming a Mum.

 

Do Dad’s attend the HypnoMothering® class too?

No. The HypnoMothering® class is just for Mum’s.

Here’s an excerpt from a blog post here, where one Dad explains why, in his view, this course needs to be just for Mum’s…

“A few months ago I had our kids (twin toddlers) by myself for the afternoon, and I took them to a 3 year old’s Birthday party. I was treated like a rock star. “Wow, Dave, I don’t know how you do it! Are you OK? Can I get you a beer? Can I take one of the kids from you for a while?” It was fantastic. I didn’t milk it (no one likes an ungracious underdog), but boy did I appreciate it.

When I got home I let slip to Kira what had happened (perhaps in response to her pointing out I hadn’t done the dishes… I forget the specifics…). Big mistake. She was mad. I didn’t understand why. So she told me. “Do you know what the response would have been if I had taken the kids to a party? ‘Oh hey Kira, thanks for coming.’ No one would have offered me a beer! No one would have even thought it was out of the ordinary. It would have just been expected.”

And she was right, I’ve seen the opposite – Mums are just expected to handle it. Anything Dads do in terms of nurture, especially in those first few months, is still considered ‘extra-credit’ as far as society is concerned. For Mums, doing the same thing barely gets them a ‘C’ grade – generally they have to face lots of voices (either physical or disembodied in Social Media) telling them that they deserve an ‘F’. And all this on top of the physical things they are dealing with.

That’s why Mums, especially new Mums, still need their own resources when it comes to nurture. Dads may now share the load, but we don’t share the expectation. Even if we put that expectation on ourselves, or our families do, we don’t have society judging us every moment, whispering in our ear that we’re not good Mothers even when we’ve hit a nurturing home run. Don’t get me wrong, we have our own problems, but this isn’t one of them. So let’s let Mums have their Mum resources, after all, they deserve a ticker-tape parade every day.”

That’s the best explanation I’ve heard of why this class is for Mum’s only.

 

 

How much does the HypnoMothering® class cost?

If you’ve done the HypnoBirthing course with me, I offer the HypnoMothering class at a reduced rate of $75 per Mother if it’s done in a group setting, or $100 if it’s done privately.

If you haven’t done the HypnoBirthing course with me, the cost is $100 per Mother if it is done in a group setting, or $150 if it’s done privately.
