Birth is a normal natural function of your body. It doesn't have to be scary or traumatic. In fact, birth can be beautiful, peaceful and comfortable. Founded by Marie Mongan, HypnoBirthing teaches that a normal healthy mom can have a normal natural birth without a lot of fuss. Whether you decide to birth at home, hospital or birth center HypnoBirthing will enable you to take control of your birth story.
During the 5 week series of classes you will
Class participants receive the "HypnoBirthing the Mongan Method" book and four downloadable relaxation MP3's, numerous handouts and relaxation scripts, birth prompts, hypnosis/relaxation sessions and on call access to the Wendy before during and after birth. Classes sizes are limited to four couples and are usually taught in my home or the homes of the participants. A class series consists of 5 classes which are each 2 1/2 hours long. These classes are taught over a five week period. This 12.5 hour series is a complete pregnancy and birth preparation.
Classes generally run every 6 weeks. Plan to book your class in your 2nd trimester if possible.
This mini class will briefly explain the stages of labor and birth and give you and your birth companion hands on practice with comfort techniques. Not meant in any way to be a replacement for the full 12.5 hour HypnoBirthing class series. However, if you find yourself within weeks of birth needing reassurance and guidance, this class will help put your mind at ease. I've teamed up with Dr Brie Gindele of the Pediatric & Perinatal Chiropractic Center in Fort Myers to give you solid tips and techniques that will teach your birth companion how to help you as you labor and birth.
