We teach the original HypnoBirthing® method developed by Marie Mongan which is relaxed, naturally focused childbirth education. It is a comprehensive childbirth course teaching specific techniques to access your instinctual birthing body which knows how to birth safely and gently.
Your partner will also learn how to support you through labour. HypnoBirthing does not promise that your birth will be pain free, but approximately 70% of women using HypnoBirthing experience a comfortable birth. HypnoBirthing can be used anywhere you choose to birth; in a hospital, birth center or in your home.
While your body does possess the intuition to birth this way, understanding our modern and local birth culture, customs and care is key to your success. This series covers all original course material as well as offering additional techniques to insure you are confident using HypnoBirthing® through your labour in the venue you've chosen here in Southern Maine. As soon as your registration is complete, you will also have the benefit of personalized mentorship in your HypnoBirthing practice.
