Why choose HypnoBirthing®?
When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change.
Drama and fear surrounding childbirth dominate today’s cultural view of what is actually a normal physiological function for women. This fearful mindset inhibits a woman’s natural ability to give birth comfortably and confidently. HypnoBirthing® is a unique method of relaxed, natural childbirth education enhanced by self-hypnosis and guided imagery techniques that allow you to use your natural abilities to experience a safe, easy, and comfortable birth. With HypnoBirthing® you are simply deeply relaxed, not in a trance or asleep. You are awake, aware, and fully in control.
People who are drawn to HypnoBirthing® are searching for a way to give birth confidently and as calmly, safely, and gently as possible, whether they have chosen to birth in a hospital, a birthing center, or at home. Through a very simple program of self-hypnosis and education, healthy, low-risk women, as well as women who need medical assistance because of special circumstances, learn to dismiss fear-based stories, misinformation, and birthing myths; and they are helped to see birth as normal. You learn to trust that you body knows how to bring their babies into the world in a calm and gentle way.
In a series of five confidence-building classes, you will learn what can cause labor to be painful; but more importantly, you will learn why labor doesn’t have to be frightening and what you can do about it. You and your birth companion will learn about the physical and chemical changes that occur when fearful and anxious thoughts take over – and how to quickly and easily return to a calm, relaxed state. You will practice relaxation techniques in class that you will instinctively call upon at your birthing time and beyond. These skills and techniques will continue to serve you in life.
The five-week series includes a HypnoBirthing® techniques textbook, relaxation audio download, and everything you need to know to reconnect with your birthing instincts and embrace your amazing birthing experience!
