Developed by two hypnotherapists, each a mother of twins, this fun, practical class 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.

How HypnoMothering Came to Be
HypnoMothering’s developers, Kira Dorrian and Tracy Adams, are each clinical hypnotherapists who are also moms of twins and childbirth educators. Over time, Kira and Tracy began to notice a pattern in the stories from the new mothers they worked with in their HypnoBirthing classes. As these women transitioned into their new role as “parent”, each woman seemed to have a unique experience with a broad spectrum of emotions that ranged from total elation at her new life to complete despair. Seeing the need to equip moms, Kira and Tracy created HypnoMothering — extending tools used in their hypnotherapy practices to moms to be, allowing women to prepare for and engage in the experience of motherhood as gently and as joyfully as possible.
HypnoMothering has grown to become an international program with Practitioners across the United States, Canada, England, Australia, Costa Rica, and Finland.
What Moms are Saying About the Class
“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.”
Class dates for 2018 will be announced in January. Interested in taking the class? Email Karen here!
