If you’re trying to decide between enrolling in the Hypnobabies home study vs the group class, here are some pros and cons for each.

✪ Home Study Pros

✫ Some introverts will learn better this way.
✫ May be easier from a scheduling standpoint. Work at your own pace.
✫ Five weeks of devoting 1-2 hours daily vs. 3 hrs. for six consecutive weeks plus daily home practice.
✫ Partners not required to read scripts. (You listen on headphones only, although, please do not confuse this with the idea that Hypnobabies is a listening program. To get the full effect, you need a full set of materials, not just the borrowed CDs, so that you can learn and apply the program as intended.)
✫ Most affordable option.
✫ Home study students do amazingly well at their births, if they have the initiative to commit and stay on track!

✪ Home Study Cons

✫ No interaction with other expectant couples/students.
✫ May be more difficult to stay on track without accountability partners.
✫ Partner/dad support aspect is more self-driven than in the group class.
✫ No guidance from instructor (unless you choose to schedule a private session with one).

✪ Group Class Pros

✫ The fun of meeting other pregnant couples!
✫ Hands-on practice, support and time for Q&A.
✫ In-class script reading from an experienced instructor.
✫ Watching videos and live birthing rehearsal.
✫ Six consecutive weeks alongside others will help some learners retain more and benefit more from the techniques.

✪ Group Class Cons

✫ Scheduling difficulties may arise.
✫ Classes are in-depth and lengthy, at least 3 hours per class.
✫ Comfort during hypnosis scripts can sometimes be an issue in a room with others.
