HypnoBirthing® Philosophy

Taking the Birthing World by Calm...

HypnoBirthing® focuses on harnessing the mind-body connection to facilitate easy, gentle birthing. The premise of HypnoBirthing® is that women’s bodies are perfectly designed to give birth and that fear and tension (not nature’s design) cause pain in childbirth and often unnecessary intervention and complication.

Childbirth is a normal, healthy biological event that all mammals experience (most with very little fuss); however, we have inherited a legacy of fear and are part of a culture that perpetuates the myth that childbirth is an agonizing, painful event that we must endure and survive. As a result, many women anticipate childbirth with a tremendous amount of fear, resistance, and misinformation. But there is a much better way!

HypnoBirthing® seeks to re-educate women to understand nature’s design, to trust their bodies and their babies, and to silence the culture of fear, understanding that their bodies are perfectly designed for birth. If we can learn to eliminate the fear and instead approach birth with confidence and calm, then our birthing experience will be easier, safer, and more comfortable.

The power and intensity of your contractions cannot be stronger than you, because it is you.”
