About the Hypnobirthing Method
HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy as it is a technique. Its goal is to eliminate fear and tension by using self-hypnosis and positive imagery, and focusing on the use of deep relaxation leading to natural, comfortable birth. HypnoBirthing® was developed by Marie Mongan, a hypnotherapist from New Hampshire, USA, with more than 30 years experience. Marie’s work was based on the teachings of Grantley Dick-Read, a British obstetrician who was a pioneer in his work on relaxation and childbirth in the 1920s. The method teaches that in the absence of fear and tension, severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labor.
During our classes you will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles work in perfect harmony — as they were designed to — when your body is sufficiently relaxed. You will learn how to achieve this kind of relaxation, free of the resistance that fear creates, and you will learn to use your natural birthing instincts for a calm, serene and comfortable birthing.
HypnoBirthing® classes are provided by a HypnoBirthing InstituteSM certified practitioner. The courses consist of a total of 12 hours divided into five, 2 ½ hour sessions. This is to ensure that participants have the time to learn gradually and practice self-hypnosis and deep relaxation, ultimately developing the conditioned responses that make HypnoBirthing® so successful. Allowing time between classes helps parents to better assimilate what they’ve learned from the class before and to practice together during the week. Then, when they return on the following week, they are able to discuss, correct, and improve their practice experience and any techniques they may not have fully understood.
This class schedule also allows the time to explore your feelings, to relax with your partner, to resolve and release any anxieties that may arise, and to become acquainted with your baby through pre-birth parenting. We like to work with you personally and to follow your progress, so that we can prepare you to be ready, relaxed, and confident as you approach the birth of your baby. Our classes are limited to a maximum of five couples in order to provide you with a comfortable environment to ask questions.
