What if…..

you could have a wonderful, joyous birth experience?

you could feel fully prepared for the greatest experience of you life?

you could feel a strong bond with your baby during pregnancy?


You can have all of that and more with Hypnobabies!


Hypnobabies is a very successful 6 week, 3-hours per week, complete childbirth education course that was adapted with permission from Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth Program” techniques rather than using simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery. This allows our Hypno-Moms to enjoy “eyes-open childbirth hypnosis”, easily remaining deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking and changing positions; being as mobile as they would like to be during childbirth. Hypnobabies is well-known for helping women to create much shorter, easier and more comfortable labors, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be.

Hypnobabies was brought to Pittsburgh in 2008 by Vanessa Manz. Since then many women have discovered how the mind-body connection can help them to have an easier, more comfortable birth.

From past students:


"For me Hypnobabies was the most comprehensive birthing course around.  My husband and I learned everything from relaxation techniques to the birthing process and anatomy.  Hypnobabies taught me how to prepare, relax and visualize the birth I wanted" – Lindsay

"Hypnobabies was the best decision we made for our son!  From thoroughly learning about pregnancy and our growing baby to creating a happy and joyful birth plan for the birthing of our beautify son, Hypnobabies was wonderful.  Having Amy as our instructor and doula was the second best decision, her help and guidance during our birthing time was priceless." – Carli


"Going into this pregnancy, I thought I knew it all.   By the third kid I should be an expert right?  Wrong!  Hypnobabies taught me more than just how to relax and open up.  It taught me to take control of my pregnancy and ultimately visualize the perfect birthing time for me.  That’s exactly what it was…perfect!" - Anonymous
