MIND + BREATH + BODY
What is Hypnobirthing®?
Hypnobirthing® uses deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualization, affirmations and childbirth education to create an easier, more joyful, comfortable, and often, even pain-free birth. Based on the belief that all babies should come into this world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy, the Hypnobirthing® philosophy allows a woman to use her natural birthing instincts to birth her baby in safety and with ease.
