Background: Hypno breastfeeding technique is a natural effort to use sub­conscious energy given to postpartum mothers so that the breastfeeding pro­cess runs safely and smoothly. This effort is done by entering positive affir­mation or suggestion when the mother is very relaxed or very concentrated on a goal so that mother can produce enough milk for the infants growing needs. This study aimed to analyze effect of hypno breastfeeding on colostrum ejection onset in pri­mi­­parous mothers.

Subjects and Methods: This was a quasi experiment (non-randomized) after only with control design conducted at two Puskesmas (Community Health Cen­ter), Surabaya, East Java. A sample of 60 primiparous mothers were selected and allocated in two groups: 30 mothers undergoing hypno breastfeeding and 30 mothers not undergoing hypno-breastfeeding. The dependent variable was onset of colostrum ejection. The independent variable was hypno breastfeeding. The data were collected by observation and interview.  The data were analyzed by a t-test.

Results: Onset of colostrum ejection was shorter in the hypno breastfeeding group (mean= 13.2; SD= 2.1) than the control group (mean= 15.7; SD= 1.9), but it was statistically non-significant.

Conclusions: Hypno breastfeeding shortens onset of colostrum ejection but it was statistically non-significant.
