This online training is offered to hypnosis and birthing professionals. Become certified to teach this 2.5 hour class designed for pregnant women and new mothers. Developed by Kira Dorrian and Tracy Barrett Adams (each a mother of twins), this fun, practical class teaches 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.

In addition to several easily learned, quickly utilized techniques, this course also provides mothers handouts with step-by-step instructions for all techniques covered in the class, and access to download several audio recordings. The syllabus comes complete with two different practitioner guides, giving you the flexibility to offer this class to pregnant moms-to-be or to mothers who have already had their babies.

“As a clinical social worker, over the years I have developed a very high bar when it comes to trainings, Kira and Tracy met or exceeded that bar with their compassion, enthusiasm and engaging way of sharing “their baby” i.e., HypnoMothering . . . They have put together an amazing curriculum that sets mothers up for success in a non-judgmental and accepting way. I feel fortunate that I am able to be a part of HypnoMothering”  Shannon Waliser, MSW
