Hypnobirthing Classes ( 19:00 - 22:00 )
  • HypnoBirthing¬ģ
  • About HypnoBirthing:
  • HypnoBirthing¬†involves teaching the technique of self-hypnosis. Through self-hypnosis you achieve a state of deep relaxation, similar to watching the flames in a fire, or the waves crashing in the ocean. It teaches you how to release all prior programming about birth and how to trust your body and work with it. The HypnoBirthing¬†relaxation techniques allow you to let go of fear and other harmful emotions. With lessened tension, your body is freed to tap into your own natural birthing instincts and to function as it is designed to do in childbirth.
  • The Benefits:
