Best Free Hypnobirthing Apps

This article may contain affiliate / compensated links. For more information, please see my disclaimer here.

Are you looking for some free hypnobirthing apps to listen to some relaxation music, practice the hypnobirthing breathing techniques, or for some birth affirmations? Then you’ve come to the right place!

I have collected here a list of the best hypnobirthing apps available for download, either for Apple or Android devices. And the best part is that they are all free, at least to some extent.

While some of these can be a great extra resource to practice your hypnobirthing techniques and prepare for childbirth, I highly recommend enrolling in a hypnobirthing course if you haven’t already. Hypnobirthing is way more complex than just listening to some relaxation music, birth affirmations, or practicing breathing techniques. It requires lots of practice and discipline. And it needs to be done right. Only a hypnobirthing course will equip you with the right tools to prepare for a calm and gentle birth experience 🙂

Best Free Hypnobirthing Apps

Here’s the list of best hypnobirthing apps I have found that include free content.

#1 Hypnobirthing

hypnobirthing app

This is hands down the best free hypnobirthing app. It comes with lots of free tracks including the Rainbow Relaxation, Birthing Affirmations and a Positive Cesarean track. It doesn’t require the creation of an account which I always find to be a bonus.

You can add tracks to a favorite playlist and you can also get a pregnancy calculator as well as suggestions on pregnancy workouts.

Adds do come up occasionally and need to be closed to continue.

I really wish I had known about this app when I was pregnant!! I had MP3s but was always too lazy to put them on the phone … so when I was outside I was often listening to hypnobirthing tracks on Spotify, which has so many adds. Imagine you are listening to a peaceful relaxation track and all of a sudden you get a loud add trying to sell you something …. nice.

Online available for Apple devices.

ProsCons
✅ Lots of free tracks
✅ No need to create an account
✅ You can crate favorite playlists
✅ Free pregnancy calculator
❌Occasional adds
❌Only available for Apple devices

#2 GentleBirth Hypnobirthing

This hypnobirthing app is also quite good. It creates a personalized plan of audio tracks for you depending on how many weeks pregnant you are. Therefore, when you first open the app, it will ask for a nickname and how far along you are. It does also ask to create an account in order to continue.

The daily personalized plan includes 2 audio tracks per day (they often repeat themselves). If you want to unlock more, you need to pay $9.99.

Bonuses are that it allows users to play downloaded sessions offline and to add audio tracks to a wish list.

Available for both Apple devices and Androids.

ProsCons
✅ Personalized Plan of audio tracks
✅ Audio tracks can be downloaded and played offline
✅ You can add tracks to a wish list
❌You need to create an account
❌Limited access to the tracks (you need to pay to get more)

#3 Hypnobirthing: Calm Birth App

This app asks you to create an account straight away and it only includes 2 free hypnobirthing audio tracks: ‘breathing affirmations for labor’ and ‘being present’. If you want access to more tracks, you need to subscribe to a plan for $8.99 per month.

It does include a pregnancy due date calculator which reveals interesting stuff about pregnancy and your baby.

Online available for Apple devices.

ProsCons
✅ Includes a pregnancy due date calculator
✅Includes 2 free audio tracks

❌Only available for Apple devices

#4 Birth Made Easy – Hypnobirthing

inner power hypnobirthing app

The app is also called Inner Power Hypnobirthing and is possibly my least favorite of all these free hypnobirthing apps. In fact, there’s actually only one track that’s free (Relaxation Visualisation). To listen to the other tracks you need to pay $14.99.

The upgraded version includes 7 more tracks that cover all eventualities from natural birth to c-section and how to help baby arrive if overdue.

Available for both Apple devices and Androids.

ProsCons
✅Includes 1 free track❌It’s not even that cheap to upgrade to get 7 more tracks

#5 iHypnoBirth-lite

ihypnobirth app

This is the free version of the iHypnobirth app. It only contains two free tracks: one with positive birth affirmations created specifically for labor and birth and one relaxation music for birth. You can unlock all tracks for £3.99. I must say… I really like the theme!

Online available for Apple devices.

ProsCons
✅Includes 2 free track
✅Very appealing theme
❌Only available for Apple devices

#6 Calm Childbirth

Online available for Apple devices.

ProsCons

More Hypnobirthing Apps to Consider

The hypnobirthing app below is not free. However, I still think it’s one of the best hypnobirthing apps out there, and it’s still very affordable.

Freya Hypnobirthing App

The Freya App is the official app of the Positive Birth Company, the cheapest and one of the top online hypnobirthing classes. It does cost £2.99 and it doesn’t just include some audio tracks like the other apps: it’s actually designed to coach you through labor!

Here’s what it has to offer:

  • Coach you through each and every surge with a simple breathing technique
  • Help you to relax in between surges with a mix of positive affirmations, calming visualizations, guided meditations and gentle music
  • Keep track of how frequently your surges are coming and how long they are lasting
  • Let you know when labor is established and it might be a good idea to contact your midwife

Freya is available for both Apple devices and Androids, as well as Apple Watch compatible, meaning you can switch between iPhone and Watch at any time!

Best Free Hypnobirthing Apps: Final Thoughts

Here it is mama, my list of the best free hypnobirthing apps available for download.

Unfortunately there isn’t much out there that provides access to a good repertoire of free audio tracks: most of them give you access to a couple of tracks and then you need to pay and upgrade to get more. That’s why the first app listed here and called Hypnobirthing is a great little gem if you have an Apple device 🙂

Also remember that if you enroll in hypnobirthing course, you will be given access to a whole lot of audio tracks, including tracks to practice your breathing techniques, with birth affirmations or for visualization exercises. And, again, I really encourage you to enroll in a class if you are serious about hypnobirthing and wanting to achieve an unmedicated vaginal birth.

If you are a bit unsure, you can also enroll in my free introductory course to hypnobirthing below!
