“When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change.”
-Marie F. Mongan
What is HypnoBirthing?
HypnoBirthing is a tried and proven method that guides and prepares a woman in giving birth in a peaceful and extraordinarily beautiful manner. It is a full spectrum program that considers the psychological, as well as the physical, well-being of the mother, her birth partner, and the newborn, whether you are birthing in the quiet of a home, a hospital, or a birth center.
The HypnoBirthing program is built around an educational process that includes special breathing, relaxation, visualization, meditative practice, attention to nutrition and positive body toning. Most importantly it fosters an air of mutual respect for the birthing family, as well as the health-care provider in a traditional health-care system or an alternative setting.
We know you have many choices and many decisions to make for your birthing experience. You have choices in selecting your care provider; you have choices in selecting the environment in which you will bring your baby into the world. Another important choice is that of the childbirth education classes you will choose to prepare for the birth of your baby.
