What is hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing’s philosophy is tied to the ancient idea that childbirth is a celebration of life, not a medical condition. Hypnobirthing provides a gentle, yet, effective technique for the safest and most natural birth possible.

What are the benefits of Hypnobirthing?

  • A peaceful and relaxed natural birth
  • Babies are alert and calm and progress more rapidly through neurological development
  • Hypnobirthing mothers experience little to no postpartum depression and recover more quickly
  • Release of fear-tension-pain triad
  • Babies latch on more easily and quickly
  • Babies go directly to mom, skin-to-skin contact, bonding with both parents is very deep from the moment of birth
  • Moms are given the empowerment to have the birth they choose-naturally
  • Hypnobirthing techniques can be applied to everyday situations

During your Hypnobirthing classes you will learn:

  • To eliminate the myth that pain is a necessary accompaniment to labor
  • Techniques for deep relaxation to help you eliminate the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome that causes women to give in to medical intervention during birth
  • How your body is naturally designed to conceive, nurture and birth your baby with ease and comfort
  • Natural ways to bring your body into labor without artificial induction
  • How your birthing companion can be an important and integral part in the birth of your baby
  • Gentle birthing techniques that allow you to breathe  your baby into the world without the violence of hard physical pushing
  • A new, gentler language for describing the phases and events of natural birth

What is the rationale for hypnosis in birthing?

It is accepted that there are certain "rules of the mind" that precede much of our behavior and beliefs: the mind can only hold one thought or emotion at a time and creates a physical response from that thought; once a thought is accepted by the subconscious and acted upon successfully it will become a behavior and remain intact until replaced by another thought.

New programming in the subconscious is always more powerful and always wins out over past programming when presented simultaneously. Each of these specific rules is utilized in Hypnobirthing techniques and is an integral focus in practitioner-led hypnosis sessions allowing moms and their birth companions to achieve deep relaxation and the joyful birth experience that is their birthright.

CLASS SCHEDULE Classes are 5 consecutive weeks and generally run about 2 – 3 hours per session. Group and/or private classes are available as needed.
