Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis: Courses Offered via New Practice

Kindra Hunckler has recently completed certification as a Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor and founded Elegant Journey Hypnobabies© Birth Services, LLC, through which she is offering Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis courses and Doula services. The first six-week course will be held from 6 to 9 p.m., September 17, and continue on the following five Monday evenings, at Metta Yoga Initiative in Moon Block Park near downtown Indianapolis.

The otherwise natural process of childbirth in our modern society is increasingly managed by technology and drugs. Sometimes medical intervention can be positive, and even life-saving, but sometimes can be physically, spiritually and emotionally harmful. For families who value a more natural way of living and wish for their birth experience to be both natural and comfortable, Hypnobabies offers excellent information and tools.

For those seeking a course to help them prepare for a natural and joyous birthing—either soon or sometime in the future—this is a new and different option they may not be aware of. Hypnobabies, developed and founded in 2001 by Kerry Tuschoff, now has more than 120 certified instructors in the United States and Canada. Hunckler also offers classes at the Natural Parenting Education Network, in Lafayette.

Hypnobabies is a six-week comprehensive childbirth education course in which expecting mothers and their birth-partners learn all they need to know to have the healthiest, most comfortable and enjoyable pregnancy and birth experience, including nutrition and exercise for a healthy pregnancy and easier birth, comprehensive coverage of the benefits and risks of different birth options that will enable them to make informed birth choices, and advice to help obtain and practice real medical self-hypnosis tools.

Along with the Hypnobabies certification, Hunckler is also a DONA-trained Birth Doula, has an MA in Health Communication from Purdue University and is a Hypno-mom herself. As a doula and instructor, she provides the information to make informed choices, the respect and encouragement to feel confident in those choices, and the tools to have the most enjoyable birth experience possible.

Class location: 2809 E 10th St. For more information or to register for the course, call 765-586-7378, email [email protected] or visit Also visit
