HypnoBirthing® is a childbirth education program to teach moms-to-be and their birth partners, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner.

What is HypnoBirthing?

HypnoBirthing® is both a philosophy and a technique that allows for the mom-to-be to be properly prepared (physically, mentally and spiritually) for the birth of her baby, so that she may have a more comfortable, satisfying and easier birth.  HypnoBirthing is a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy. The program consists of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualizations, affirmations and education. It allows for the mom-to-be to make use of her natural birthing techniques and to give birth in a safe and comfortable manner.
