HypnoBirthing Infant Massage Certification Course
Teaching Parents to Relax and Enhance their Relationship with their Babies
through Touch
Students will learn how to teach parents to massage their babies. Underlying the basics of massage strokes and routines that parents are taught is the empowerment and trust that parents learn. Every pregnant parent has an idealized vision of what life will be like after the baby is born; sometimes that vision becomes the reality, and the love affair between parent and baby is amazing. Sometimes, however, the reality is less than perfect, and parents may feel clueless, lost, or even at war with their babies. They are willing to do whatever it takes to become the parent they know they can be. Teaching this class to parents satisfies the needs of both groups: it will enhance the perfect relationship, and it will help the troubled relationship to become peaceful and relaxed.   
This two-day class teaches several of the relaxation techniques that are part of the HypnoBirthing® philosophy and training, but being a HypnoBirthing® Instructor or Parent is not a prerequisite. Students will receive certification as a “HypnoBirthing Infant Massage Educator,” and CEU credit hours for Massage Therapists and HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educators. Other professional CEUs may be available in the future.

Tuition for the 2-day class includes:

A syllabus for teaching parent classes
Handouts that can be copied and distributed to parents
Lifelike baby doll (a $50 value) to use as a teaching aid in future classes.

  1. I used hypnobirthing for the birth of my son and it really did help - having had a traumatic earlier birth with my daughter. I found it so incredible I am now signed up for hypnobirthing practitioner training to help other mothers and to help spread the word on this natural childbirth method. I love that more and more of these courses are springing up.

    1. Hi Lucy,

      Thanks for your post. You're going to love your HypnoBirthing Practitioner Training course. HypnoBirthing moms who become HypnoBirthing Practitioners are the best testimony ever. We would like to offer the HypnoBirthing Practitioner course here in Maryland in the near future. The more of us that are out there, the more we can all spread the good word!
