Jacob's Birth - Hospital VBAC, "I will admit I was a bit of a slacker during my practice of Hypnobabies as well. I listened to my scripts at night and did good at that part, but didn't practice my fingerdrops nearly as much as recommended. When the time came, I didn't even consciously put myself into hypnosis. But, it worked for me! We're pretty sure our family is complete now, but if we were to have another baby, I'd totally use Hypnobabies again!"
Noah's Birth - Hospital birth with midwife. "I am really grateful for Hypnobabies. Although, I did experience a lot of pain the program helped me in the beginning parts of my birthing time and when things were not going planned I still had a positive feeling that everything would turn out fine."

Gwendolyn's Birth - VBAC. Mom was comfortable until car ride to hospital. "This was truly the greatest experience of my life and I am soo happy that I had the chance to experience a normal birth- even happier that I got to experience it without drugs. The Hypnobabies program got me through my whole high risk pregnancy and helped me keep my BP under control, It got me all the way through my birthing time until transition in the car... They really aren't kidding when they tell you your birthing time will be easier & faster! So even though there was quite a bit of pain involved at the end I'm glad that I used Hypnobabies and I will use it again for my next baby."
Marlie's Birth - VBAC. Mom was comfortable until she went from 5cm to holding the baby in her arms in 45 minutes with the first 20 of those minutes the nurse bugging her with forms.
Micah's Birth - VBAC, very healing birth. "One of the most wonderful things Hypnobabies did, we make the last 8 weeks of my pregnancy, so much happier and more peaceful. I went from being terrified of birth, to being actually excited, and so confident."
Logan's Birth - VBAC hospital birth with a doula. "When I first heard about Hypnobabies I was totally skeptical about it working. After I saw my friendís birth video using Hypnobabies I thought it might be possible for others, but me? After I finished with my Hypnobabies classes I knew it helped me relax but I still wasnít sure I could do it for my birth. I was so pleasantly surprised that it did work and it worked beautifully."
