Whether you are having a hospital birth or home birth, planning a natural birth or wanting an epidural, the HypnoBirthing® childbirth education program can help you achieve a safer and gentler childbirth by blending trust in the female body with the documented effectiveness of self-hypnosis (deep relaxation), guided imagery, visualization, special breathing and tension-releasing techniques.
The HypnoBirthing childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free birthing. Mothers-to-be will learn how to call upon their birthing body’s own natural relaxant (endorphins) to lessen or eliminate birthing discomfort, labor pain and the need for medication. When a pregnant woman is properly prepared for childbirth and her mind and body are in harmony, nature can be freed to function during labor and birthing in the same manner that it does with all other creatures.
HypnoBirthing childbirth classes teach expecting mothers to release all prior programming about birth and how to trust the birthing body and work with it, as well as how to eliminate harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles during labor and birth. HypnoBirthing teaches the art of using natural birthing instincts, and empowers women so they can create the birth they want.
HypnoBirthing mothers experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm and relaxation, without fear and tension that causes pain. Their body’s natural relaxant replaces the stress, hormones that cause labor pain. HypnoBirthing moms are aware of their laboring and birthing body and choose to surrender to the childbirth process. They are aware, in control, and profoundly relaxed.
In addition to learning self-hypnosis techniques to help achieve a more natural birthing, by taking the five-week HypnoBirthing program you will also learn:
- Breathing techniques for labor and birth
- Exercise techniques to prepare the body to give birth
- Nutrition; birth planning
- How to get a good start with breastfeeding
- Postpartum and more!

The fee for the classroom program is $275, which includes instruction for the pregnant mother and her birth partner, as well as a course text book, self-hypnosis practice CD and course binder.
