HypnoBirthing® provides the missing link that allows women to use their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birthing. Emphasis is placed on pregnancy and childbirth, as well as on pre-birth parenting and the consciousness of the pre-born baby.

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 all birthing environments and locations.

Relaxation, achieved through self-hypnosis techniques, releases the fear and tensions that cause long labor. According to Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, upon whose work HypnoBirthing® was created, fear creates tension and tension creates pain. This negative cycle is replaced with confidence, calm, and comfort. The suggestions used in HypnoBirthing® assure that misguided beliefs about birthing are replaced by new empowering beliefs that return birthing to the beautiful, peaceful experience nature intended.
