HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy as it is a technique. The method is based on the belief that birth is normal, natural, and healthy and that when a woman is given the proper preparation for childbirth, mentally, emotionally & spiritually, she , her baby, and her birthing companion can experience a gentle, safe, serene, comfortable birth, free of the fear & negative emotions that cause tension and labor pain. Hypnobirthing teaches that although labor is hard work, severe pain does not have to be a natural accompaniment to labor, it teaches partners how to best support the laboring mother and it gives laboring mothers the tools they need to stay relaxed, confident and comfortable during their labor and birth. We strongly recommend Hypnobirthing® to Birth Centre and Homebirth clients as it is the only childbirth class of its kind that focuses on preparing expectant couples for an out-of-hospital birth experience.
HypnoBirthing® Classes are held every other month and are usually held on weekends. Private and refresher courses are available.
Classes are $250 per couple, ($50 deposit due upon signing up for class, $200 due at first class.)
Ideally classes are taken around 20-32 weeks, (of course classes can be taken at any time even very late in pregnancy)
