What is HypnoBirthing?
HypnoBirthing is a tried and proven method that guides and prepares a woman in giving birth in a peaceful and extraordinarily beautiful manner. It is a program that considers the psychological, as well as the physical, well-being of the mother, her birth partner, and the newborn, independent of context, whether that be in the quiet of a home, a hospital, or a birth center.
The HypnoBirthing program is built around an educational process that includes special breathing, relaxation, visualization, meditative practice, attention to nutrition and positive body toning. Most importantly it fosters an air of mutual respect for the birthing family, as well as the health-care provider in a traditional health-care system or an alternative setting.
5 classes last approximately 2 ½ hours each. The cost of HypnoBirthing classes includes a book, audio tracks, and numerous handouts for essential home practice.
Class sizes are limited to 4 families per session. This small class size promotes comfort, understanding, and well monitored hypnotic sessions. In addition to small classes your instructor is available to answer questions about your techniques or practice between classes.
If a class is full it will state "no longer enrolling in this series" Please check back frequently to see the latest class openings.
Unless otherwise noted, all classes are held at The HypnoBirthing Studio located at 8545 Patterson Avenue, Suite 102
HypnoBirthing classes have moved to an online format ONLY until the corona threat subsides or is better understood. We use zoom so that the class remains interactive and class size is still limited to 4 families. As soon as it is reasonably responsible we will return to the studio. Please give Joy a call at any time with any questions. 804-337-7657
Also, the class fee is the same while we are online (studio rent is still due each month) HOWEVER if you need a sliding scale fee or a less conventional exchange then we absolutely CAN work with you so please let us know how we can make it manageable.
UPDATE (6/24/2020) The HypnoBirthing Institute has adapted guidelines to allow online class delivery for the remainder of 2020. We have now labeled each series as either ONLINE or AT THE STUDIO. **Please note that studio classes MAY move to online format however online classes will definitely remain online. Additionally, studio classes are currently being limited to only 2 families to ensure very easy distancing - this is also subject to change.
