Knoxville-area Birth Doula & HypnoBirthing Educator
Affiliated with the HypnoBirthing Institute
The HypnoBirthing Childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying and stress-free method of birthing. HypnoBirthing teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. You will learn to call upon your body's own natural relaxant and thus lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication. When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with all other creatures.
HypnoBirthing teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles.
What you'll learn includes:
Group classes are a series of 5 weekly sessions, each 2 1/2 hours, and scheduled for evenings or weekends.
Tuition is $225 per couple, and includes the book and Rainbow Relaxation recording. A $75 deposit is due at registration with the balance due after the first session.
