Your baby’s birth can be a joyous and empowering experience. Many mothers do not realize they can have a calm, safe, satisfying birth that is free of fear and tension. Fear and misinformation can turn what is a normal, healthy process for most women into a medical event.
HypnoBirthing® is a childbirth education program that guides expectant mothers and their birthing partners through self-directed relaxation, breathing, and visualization techniques for calmer, gentler, and easier childbirth. These techniques help reduce fear, pain, or discomfort, helping women to call upon their natural birthing instincts and to free their birthing muscles of tension for smoother childbirth. The techniques help mothers remain calm and in control with the premise that there is no right or wrong way to birth, but that a relaxed state can improve birth outcomes.
HypnoBirthing families report having high rates of natural births, more satisfying experiences, and less incidence of preterm labors and interventions such as cesareans and episiotomies.
Boston HypnoBirthing is conveniently located in Milton, MA, near several Boston-area neighborhoods. Unlike most childbirth classes taught in hospital settings, Boston HypnoBirthing has a cozy and inviting studio space that maximizes comfort. Their group classes are small and intimate, limited to three to seven couples. Their course offers complete childbirth preparation, whether you plan to birth in a hospital, birth center, or at home. Additionally, you will have access to ongoing phone and email support.
The 12-hour HypnoBirthing® course is taught in five 2.5-hour sessions for moms and their birthing companions. All couples receive the book “HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method” by Marie Mongan, accompanying CDs, and a unique Boston HypnoBirthing course compilation containing essential information to help participants have a more positive birth experience.
In honor of opening their new studio in Milton, Boston HypnoBirthing is offering 50% off the tuition for their May class, which begins Saturday, May 7, and ends June 4. Contact Boston HypnoBirthing to register today or for more information.
