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.
This course is designed to guide you through establishing a regular practice of deep relaxation and meditation. By learning to release fear and physical tension, the mind can more easily relax to allow birth to unfold. Through discussions of physiological birth, optimal labor positions, breathing techniques, and personal preferences, you will be empowered to increase your own comfort measures and welcome your child with mindful awareness.
“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.
Class is 5 weeks, $400/couple.
