HypnoBirthing® can be a benefit at any stage of pregnancy.  Couples require time to practice self-hypnosis techniques, develop a birth plan, and build on positive expectations of birth.  Although the earlier you begin the better, it's NEVER too late!  If you are near your birthing time, I may be able to help with special arrangements!

How does HypnoBirthing® differ from other childbirth methods?

Unlike other childbirth methods that teach you how to cope with and manage pain, HypnoBirthing® is based on the idea that childbirth doesn't necessarily need to be severely painful as long as you are relaxed and free from fear and tension.  This enables you to change your expectations of a long, painful labor and replace them with expectations of a more comfortable birthing.  HypnoBirthing® parents learn breathing and relaxation techniques that enable the birthing mother to work in harmony with her body and her baby.

What is HypnoBirthing®?

HypnoBirthing® is a complete childbirth method that focuses on preparing you and your birthing companion for a gentle and satisfying birth experience.  You will learn unique methods of relaxation, guided imagery, and visualization, enhanced by self-hypnosis techniques.  With HypnoBirthing®, you will be aware and fully in control, but deeply and profoundly relaxed.

Because a gentle beginning is a beautiful thing!
