This program is an in-depth, high quality and comprehensive 6 week, 18-hour natural childbirth class addressing all aspects of childbirth education.

Topics include prenatal nutrition & exercise, stages of labour, birthing choices & natural alternatives, birth plans, the use of birth balls, positions during labour, the benefit of movement and upright positions, optimal fetal positioning, complete birth partner training, and 4th trimester planning!
Ideal for parents desiring a natural birth, Hypnobabies uses visualization, relaxation and affirmations to prepare you for a POSITIVE birth experience, as well as real, medical-grade hypno-anesthesia. Using "Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis", Moms easily remain in hypnosis while walking, talking, & changing positions; being as mobile as they choose. Enjoy your babies' birth!

6 Week Prenatal Series
Are you looking for a prenatal class that goes beyond the ordinary? While we do cover all the same core information you would find in any prenatal class, our goal is to provide you with something more – offering a blend of information and practical tools together with a deeper sense of personal preparation for birth and new parenthood. This is childbirth preparation for your heart and mind.
We have an agenda of topics we are always sure to cover, but we also strive to tailor the class to your unique needs and interests. The result? You enjoy a childbirth class that prepares you for the full spectrum of what birth can bring – so that you can enter the unknown of your unique birth with a sense of confidence, connection and community.
