What is HypnoBirthing

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 childbirth 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

Combined with sound information on the physical process of pregnancy, labor, and birth, it is no wonder that new parents everywhere are thanking HypnoBirthing Las Vegas and their childbirth educators for a calmer, more relaxed labor and birthing experience.

About Me

Mandie Medford

Certified HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator & Owner of HypnoBirthing Las Vegas

My name is Mandie Medford, and I was honored to become the owner of HypnoBirthing Las Vegas in June of 2008. Since I took over HBLV, I have had the honor of teaching over 1,000 families in the greater Las Vegas area. I am called mom by my three beautiful daughters Makenzie, Grace and Reagan. They are the reason I do what I do. All of my girls were birthed naturally with the profound relaxation and calm confidence of HypnoBirthing ®- The Mongan Method. I birthed my first child, Makenzie, at St Rose de Lima hospital in October of 2007. Grace was born at home in water in September of 2010; Reagan joined our family in May of 2012 and was also a water birth baby born at home. Each of my births were life changing experiences and have furthered my belief that birth is beautiful and sacred and can absolutely take place in the way that mirrors nature. Each day that we spend with our sweet girls is an absolute joy and reminder of the beauty of pregnancy, parenting and childbirth. In our family, we value the gift of our children above else and want to pass that joy onto other families. I am so blessed to be able to share the joy of birthing with other parents-to-be here in Las Vegas and Henderson.

I was born and raised right here in fabulous Las Vegas.  I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2006, and taught first grade for 2 years before becoming a full time mom and HypnoBirthing ® Childbirth Educator. Throughout my time as a birth professional, I’ve received birth doula training through DONA International and have had the privilege of attending the births of many of the clients who’ve attended my HypnoBirthing classes. I’ve obtained lactation educator training, and certification in NRP (neonatal resuscitation). Staying active in the birth community is near and dear to my heart and I’m able to do so through my affiliation with Well Rounded Momma; a pregnancy resource center which strives to educate and support expectant families in Las Vegas to influence better birth outcomes.  Because of my love of this wonderful city, I am giving back by helping parents take back their right to birth in the safe, joyful and comfortable way in which nature created all of us to birth.  I believe that birth is a celebration of life.  I am working to help all families create the birth that they believe is best for them, and giving them the tools to achieve this gentle, comfortable birth.
