"Bump Birthing and Beyond is for moms who are pregnant and want help, preparing for childbirth. It is an app they can use the entire 9 months of their pregnancy as well as take into the delivery room, to help them be calm and centered. Positive affirmations and breathing techniques keep the mom, more focused during her labor. Hypno-Birthing teaches women to trust in the natural way of birth that women have done for thousands of years. It teaches them to relax and trust, that their body and baby know just what to do.
By practicing a few key techniques such as, visual imagery, breathing and relaxation exercises, mothers program their minds and condition their bodies to birth easily. It allows women to use their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birthing without drugs. Hypno-Birthing gives women the opportunity to prepare for childbirth naturally and teaches them how to stay calm so that they are not interfering with their birthing process by having anxiety and fear. When they are not afraid they are able to focus on their body and let it do what it's made to do, after all, it knew how to make the baby why wouldn't it know how to birth it?
This App is also for children ages (3-12) who enjoy calming bedtime stories, they can listen to in bed while drifting off to sleep at night or while mom is resting. These children's stories and meditations are designed to teach children good values, confidence and self-esteem while listening to very fun and creative stories. There are sound effects and music to go along with them to make it more exciting and interesting for your little ones. The meditations teach relaxation, listening and breathing skills as they take your child off into visually creative experiences with healing angels or magic wizards, secret gardens, happy places, friendly clouds and there’s even a time out! Check out our album samples.
For anyone who just who needs to relax or get a good night’s sleep there are guided recordings on there for that too with beautiful music, voice and sounds from nature weaving throughout.

Ratings and Reviews
Great tracks for Hypnobirthing
I read a few Hypnobirthing books but felt a little lost on what to practice and how to do the breaths. The subscription is awesome because you get access to tracks that help you practice the different breaths (during birth waves and between them, and for breathing the baby out) along with an excellent track for birth partners. My one complaint is that the tracks don’t play when the screen switches to another app or the screen is locked, but a fix is on the way for that. Until then I just play the tracks with my phone face down. Other than that, I’d give it 5 stars!
Really Helped My Long, Hard Labor
I was one of the beta testers for this app and I used the hypnobirthing recordings a great deal during my pregnancy. They were a real help to me! I had a very hard, long labor (32 hrs, 20 of it active w/ 3 hrs of pushing) but was able to successfully deliver my daughter at home, thanks in part to the hypnosis meditations and other personal preparations I did beforehand (such as EFT).
There was one line from the recordings that seemed to make a great difference for me: "If I have a fearful thought I will choose to change it to a positive one". In many moments this is what I did. I talked myself through the entire experience and kept on going even when I felt like I couldn't. My sister said it seemed like I had "programmed" my mind to stay present and fear free. And I think on some level that was true, thanks in part to the recordings. In the end, after a lot of hard work, my daughter was born naturally at home, which is what I truly wanted.
I do believe that Hypnobirthing makes a difference in how we automatically encounter birth and in the ways we cope with pain, fear, and trauma. And I think it creates a safe, comfortable environment, a "home" of sorts to which we can return again and again. I remember listening to Hypnobirthing track 5 (my favorite) one last time while I was trying to fall asleep during early labor and looking back now I think the familiarity of that track helped set the tone for my whole experience.
There are lots of tracks to choose from on this app which is great. Mariah's voice is very pleasant and calming. The only downside I have encountered with the app is that it has often been glitchy for me: it crashes frequently and sometimes tracks stop midway. Mariah has been very accommodating when this has happened and has emailed me some tracks to download. Hopefully they keep working on getting out all the kinks because I think this is a great app for moms and moms-to-be! I now use the sleep tracks to help with my "momsomnia". Good luck to all on their mothering/parenting journey!! :) :)
Wow! Worked like a charm
I am pregnant with baby #3 and don't have as much time to prep for this baby as I did with the first two. I am so grateful however that I found this app because it is so easy to listen to these guided meditations to help me get my mindset prepared for labor. It helps me elevate fear of birth and the Hypnobirthing sessions are fantastic! It speaks to my subconscious to be strong, prepared with serenity of mind and spirit for my upcoming labor. The meditations are so peaceful and I love to drift off to sleep with them on. There are also meditations for kids such as nighttime stories my little ones 3yrs old love before bedtime. Meditations for breastfeeding, so many great useful topics! You get SO many meditations for SO little! By far the best deal of all meditation apps online. I'm glad I found this app. Makes me, baby and my lil ones very happy:)
