HypnoBirthing Classes


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.


Class Specifics


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. 


Limited class sizes 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 for now and until the corona threat subsides or is better understood. We use zoom so that the class remains interactive and class size is still limited.  Please give Joy a call at any time with any questions. 804-337-7657
