Total cost of the course 0.00 Class Description Hypnobabies is a complete childbirth education course. There is no need to “supplement” with any other kind of childbirth education because we really HAVE IT ALL! Each course lasts 6 weeks, and meets one day a week for 3 1/2 hours. I recommend beginning the course when you are between 27-31 weeks pregnant so that you will have sufficient time to complete the course before the arrival of your baby. Each class will consist of 3-5 hypno-moms and their birth partners.Call me at 262.909.8720 if you have any questions.
