You will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles work in perfect harmony as they were designed to when your body is sufficiently relaxed. You will learn how to achieve this kind of relaxation, free of the resistance that fear creates, and you will learn to use your natural birthing instincts for a calm, serene and comfortable birthing.I am a Certified HypnoBirthing Practitioner and I was Taught by Marie Mongan herself. Only certified practitioners can use the name HypnoBirthing because it is a registered trademark ®. If you are interested in attending classes you should ask your instructor if they are certified and ask to see their certificate to verify this. I hold small intimate classes with 3 to 4 couples to teach them HypnoBirthing. There are 5 classes each 2.5 hours long. The classes are taken 1 week apart and you will receive materials during your class. You can take your classes anytime during your pregnancy but it is best if you start after your first trimester.
