Imagine for a moment how your baby's birth could be if you went into labor with calmness and confidence; really knowing you had the skills to relax deeply and stay focused on what will help the most for you and your baby to navigate birth smoothly.
These skills and tools can help you work in greater harmony with your body, stay calm, increase your relaxation, and reduce the level of sensations you experience. They are also life skills that you can use well beyond your pregnancy and birth.
It is truly possible, utilizing the power of your mind and the body-mind connection. This is what Hypnosis for Birth offers birthing moms and their partners.
Hypnosis for Birth Helps to:
- Reduce/Modify your perception of Pain
- Build your confidence and calmness
- Diminish fears and anxiety
- Reduce/eliminate the need for medication in labor
- Reduce the need for interventions (c-cection, forceps, etc.)
- Learn to very quickly and deeply relax and focus
- Expand your emotional and mental control in labor

With a baby on the way there is so many choices to sort through and decide upon! Childbirth preparation is one of those areas that can seem a bit overwhelming with choices. The good news is that regardless of your childbirth class or the type of birth you are hoping for, Hypnosis for Birth is very helpful.
Often people are surprised at the idea of using hypnosis for birth. Actually, it has been used in childbirth since the early 1950's. In the late 1950's the American Medical Association (AMA) recognized hypnosis as a valuable tool for health professionals. Beginning in the early 1990's using hypnosis in childbirth exploded into the mainstream around the world. This is due largely to the work and efforts of Marie Mongan and her "HypnoBirthing the Mongan Method".
The techniques taught in Hypnosis for Birth have their foundation in HypnoBirthing the Mongan Method along with several other hypnosis techniques for childbirth and pain management, as well as my experiences attending births as a birth doula.
Hypnosis for childbirth has continued to generate positive media attention. Even more exciting - now scientific research results are proving what hypnosis used for childbirth has to offer. [See the Links and Resources page to read some of these exciting research results.]
The statistics and ongoing research are showing that women using hypnosis skills in labor experience more positive birth experiences with less pain, require less medications, need fewer interventions (such as forceps, C-sections, etc.), and have shorter labor times.
