HypnoBirthing Classes

Childbirth Education Series, Presented by Dr Colleen Noe

What is HypnoBirthing?

HypnoBirthing is a tried and proven method that guides a woman in giving birth in a peaceful manner. It is a program a that considers the psychological, as well as the physical, well-being of the mother, her birth partner, and the newborn.

Women learn to trust that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world in the calm and gentle way that Nature intended. When giving birth with HypnoBirthing, a mother is not in a trance or asleep but instead relaxed – awake, aware, and fully in control.

Women have been conditioned to believe that excruciating pain is associated with labor. This extreme fear causes their bodies to become tense, and that tension prohibits their bodies from easily performing a normal physiological function.

In a series of classes, women learn what makes labor hurt; but more importantly, they learn the logic behind why labor doesn’t have to hurt. Armed with this knowledge, the pattern of calming techniques and steps that they learn helps them to create endorphins and avoid the effect of the negative hormones that cause their bodies to constrict, rather than open.

The program is built around an educational process that includes implementing special birthing techniques such as:

Special Breathing
Relaxation
Visualization
Meditative Practice
Attention to Nutrition
The Intuitive Connection to Your Baby

Studies Show:

When a woman feels relaxed, safe and supported through childbirth there is a:

50% reduction in caesarean rate
25% shorter labor
60% reduction in epidural requests
40% reduction in Syntocinon use
30% reduction in analgesia use
40% reduction in forceps delivery
