About HypnoBirthing

The HypnoBirthing Childbirth method is a philosophy of birth as well as a technique for achieving a satisfying, gentle, and stress-free birthing. HypnoBirthing teaches the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner.  You will learn to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication. With HypnoBirthing, you will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.
