Pregnancy and Birth
"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be enthusiastic about learning as much as you can during your pregnancy, your baby will be glad you did.
HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method®
Hypnotic relaxation, imagery and breathing will greatly elevate your birth to the most rewarding, empowering and fulfilling experience you can imagine. HypnoBirthing® childbirth classes are designed to provide pregnant women and their birth partners with the skills needed to reduce the Fear-Tension-Pain cycle. By learning self-hypnosis skills along with the physiology of birth, women can greatly reduce stress during the birth process for themselves, their birth partners and their babies. Your body's natural anesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones that contribute to pain. When it is time for your baby to be born, you will be fully awake and involved. Studies show this method can shorten the first stage of labor by several hours and greatly reduces the need for interventions. Many mothers believe it reduced fatigue during labor, promoted a special bond between them and their baby and their birth companion and they had a rapid postnatal recovery. Affiliated with the HypnoBirthing® Institute.
Whether you are a first time mom or were not successful with previous experiences, this class will meet your personal needs. A comprehensive review of positioning and latching techniques and how to solve minor problems that may occur in the early postpartum period are included. Learn how to tell when your baby is getting enough too.
