HypnoBirthing® is a tried and proven method that guides and prepares a woman in giving birth in a calm, confident, and peaceful manner. The HypnoBirthing® program is built around an educational process that includes special breathing, relaxation, visualization, meditative practice, attention to nutrition and positive body toning.
For most of their lives, women have been inundated with the negative stories of other women’s birth experiences. They have been conditioned to believe that pain is associated with labor; and because of this, women today hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth. This extreme fear causes their bodies to become tense, and that tension prohibits their bodies from easily performing a normal physiological function. With HypnoBirthing®, you learn to use visualization and relaxation to keep your body free to tension. You re-set your thoughts and beliefs about birth through changing the language and using positive affirmations.
“After my first hypnobirthing class, my birth plan changed dramatically. Hypnobirthing made me approach and look at everything very differently. It demolished all the stereotypes that were instilled in me from years of TV shows and movies depicting birth as a painful and stressful event. The language I used to describe my pregnancy, baby, and the upcoming birth of my daughter were words that were positive, calming, and empowering. Hypnobirthing taught me how to focus on my breathing and my positive thoughts, and not allow anything to distract me from bringing my little one into the world. When surges would come, I was literally in a trance-like state of hypnosis. My husband and I were even dancing! One of the most memorable parts of my birth experience was the connection I had with my husband. Hypnobirthing was a game changer, and I know that it is one of the reasons I was able to stick to my birth plan and have a natural birth.”- Eliza P.
