HypnoBirthing® Classes

We are very excited about this wonderful choice of childbirth education. HypnoBirthing promotes the idea that childbirth can and should be a joyous, calm and natural experience.

The goal of this method is not to sell “pain-free labor” or “drug-free labor”, the goal is to educate and empower parents and birthing companions to make decisions which will lead them toward an easier, safer and more comfortable birth. HypnoBirthing parents learn to be relaxed and trust their body’s natural abilities throughout the birthing process, regardless of the circumstances.

Consider taking HypnoBirthing whether you are first time expecting parents or you’d like to improve on a previous childbirth experience. Check out the FAQ for more details.
