The HypnoBirthing childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. HypnoBirthing classes teach expectant mothers and birth companions the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. Pregnant mothers-to-be will learn how to call upon their birthing body’s own natural relaxant (endorphins) and thus lessen or even eliminate birthing discomfort, labor pain, and the need for medication. When a pregnant woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function during labor and birthing in the same well-designed manner that it does with all other creatures.
HypnoBirthing childbirth classes teach expecting mothers to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust the birthing body and work with it, as well as how to eliminate harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles during labor and birth. HypnoBirthing teaches the art of using natural birthing instincts and empowers women so they can create the birth they want. HypnoBirthing mothers are conversant and in good spirits while laboring and birthing their baby – totally relaxed, but fully in control. HypnoBirthing moms are aware of their body’s contractions but are able to determine the extent to which they feel the birthing surge. HypnoBirthing mothers experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm and relaxation, without fear and tension that causes pain. Their body’s natural relaxant replaces the stress hormones that cause labor pain. HypnoBirthing moms are aware of their laboring and birthing body and choose to surrender to the childbirth process. They are aware, in control, and profoundly relaxed.
“HypnoBirthing with Mandie is so much more than just “birthing.” It was the MOST educational class I took throughout my pregnancy. These sessions with Mandie cover so many topics and make you feel EMPOWERED. It was a bonding experience with my husband. I found my tribe in my HypnoBirthing class; we’re still friends and our daughters will be BFFs.”~Destiny, a Happy HypnoBirthing Mama
