Wondering when to start Blissborn?

We recommend starting Blissborn around week 28-32 of your pregnancy.

That way, you have time to finish up the classes even if your little munchkin decides to come early. And if you go into labor later, you'll still be charged up about practicing that yummy relaxation.

Are you already past that window?

That's okay! Although it's great to have lots of practice time, we've had moms who have had amazing labors starting closer to their baby's birthday. Blissborn classes can be condensed, depending on your needs.

Want to start early?

We love enthusiasm! You can start working with hypnosis whenever you want. We wish everyone would learn hypnosis early on in pregnancy — it's great for morning sickness and other common complaints of pregnancy. Your teacher is a great resource for starting early!

If you really want to start the class early, and you know that you'll be super-charged to continue practicing, go for it.

Contact your local teacher or Blissborn for more information!
