WHAT IS HypnoBirthing®?
“When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change.” -Marie Mongan
HypnoBirthing® is a comprehensive childbirth education program that prepares parents for a calmer, safer, easier and more comfortable birth. The program is based on the premise that childbirth is a normal and natural biological process in the absence of special medical circumstances, and not an illness or medical event. Remaining calm and relaxed can assist the body’s instincts and normal physiological functions and reduce the need for interventions.
You and your birth partner will learn how to make informed choices with evidence-based knowledge, relaxation techniques, special breathing, visualization, self-hypnosis, and guided imagery. HypnoBirthing is appropriate regardless of where you choose to birth (be it a hospital or at home) or whether your birth involves medical interventions.
