Relaxed childbirth with HypnoBirthing

A course that prepares for a gentler, anxiety-free and pain-reduced birth, in addition to support around the pregnancy. much support around the pregnancy.

This goal, to enable women to have an anxiety-free and pain-reduced birth, is what the founder of HypnoBirthing Switzerland, Nadine Ballmer, together with her experienced team, has been pursuing her concept for twelve years now – and very successfully.

We met with Nadine and talked about HypnoBirthing. In the interview, she told us a lot of exciting information about the path of pregnancy to birth with the help of HypnoBirthing, which we of course do not want to withhold from you.

giving birth without fear

Could you tell us a little bit about what HypnoBirthing is exactly and what we can expect from the birth preparation course?

The concept of HypnoBirthing is basically designed so that every woman can go into childbirth with a feeling of security and confidence. Not only should she remain worry-free, but the baby should also be given the best and most stress-free start in life. We teach different breathing and relaxation techniques that help to reduce fears and doubts and therefore also reduce the pain of childbirth. The course is therefore suitable for anyone who wants to be ideally and self-determinedly prepared for childbirth and free from worries.

Over the years, we have perfected our courses more and more and have now been able to accompany over 2000 parents on the way to the birth of their child. Even midwives and doctors recommend HypnoBirthing birth preparation courses.

What can be understood by hypnosis?  

Hypnosis is a very deep state of relaxation. During it you do not lose control over yourself, you are always responsive and fully conscious. Also, your freedom of movement is not restricted. We experience this state regularly in our everyday life: when waking up, shortly before falling asleep or even during sports.

In the birth preparation courses of HypnoBirthing Switzerland you will learn everything you need to know so that you can approach the birth relaxed and optimally prepared.

Important information about the HypnoBirthing courses

From when can I attend the birth preparation course with you?

You can start the HypnoBirthing course as early as the 20th week of pregnancy. But of course it is entirely up to the woman to decide when the ideal time is for her personally. By the way: We welcome our participants both alone and accompanied by their partner.

Is the HypnoBirthing course recognized by the health insurance?

We are recognized by Qualitop, which means that most supplementary insurances cover a portion of the costs.

Where can you be found and in which form do the courses take place?

We are represented in a total of 9 locations in Switzerland, such as Zurich, Lucerne, Bern and Basel. With the HypnoBirthing compact course or the All Inclusive course, all our contents are taught. The courses can be attended on site but of course also via our online classroom.

By the way, we also offer other courses, such as course leader trainings! We have already had some expectant mamas who, after experiencing the birth with HypnoBirthing, have also enthusiastically trained with us as course leaders themselves.

Founder Nadine Ballmer: My motivation is that every woman should experience a beautiful birth. And even more important: that every baby can have the best start in life.

Cesarean Section

Can I attend a HypnoBirthing course even if I am going to have a cesarean section?

Absolutely! No matter if a cesarean section was planned or has to be performed unexpectedly for medical reasons: With HypnoBirthing we prepare you and your baby optimally for your birth experience.

We would like to thank Nadine for the great conversation about this exciting topic and wish her and her team all the best for the future!
