HypnoBirthing®

Preparing for a calm birth?  HypnoBirthing provides the missing link that allows women to use their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birthing.  This evidence based class provides resources and a comprehensive class that covers the stages of labor and what to expect in addition to relaxation techniques to allow for a more comfortable experience.  This is not just a method of childbirth, it will change the entire way you view birthing.  You and your partner will enter this experience in a much more confident and prepared way.  

Through relaxation, breathing, positive affirmations and visualizations you can release the fear and tensions that many women are bringing to their birth in our culture.   We believe this fear and tension is the main cause of pain during labor.   If you’re tense or afraid during labor, stress hormones are released which cause the fight-or-flight reaction.  Hypnobirthing might counteract this process by preventing the release of stress hormones, which potentially reduces the pain of labor.  This negative cycle is replaced with confidence, calm, and comfort.

Our Hypnobirthing course is taught in 4 class sessions;

Mind Body Birth Prep

Sunday December 2nd 12:30-3:30pm

Join Carly Glover and Christen Barrs on Sunday, December 2nd from 12:30 – 3:30 pm. During this 3 hour workshop Christen will teach posture, exercises, and simple movements to help you physically prepare for giving birth and assisting in postpartum recovery. These movements will strengthen the pelvic floor, legs, and abdomen that will help in the process of birth, no matter the type of birth that chooses you.

Carly will then lead us in a discussion about different mindsets regarding birth and how we can release the negative stories and emotions we so often hear. She will walk us through guided meditations and affirmations that participants can take home to use daily.
