Relaxing During Labor? You Bet!

Beaumont’s Prenatal & Family Education department has been offering HypnoBirthing® classes for several years. These classes are an option for expectant parents who are interested in this method of deep relaxation and self hypnosis. Expectant moms who use this technique may have less pain and shorter labors. This technique is designed for women who are having a normal pregnancy and are considered low risk.

The class series meets once a week, for 4 or 5 sessions, to learn about the labor process, release fears, explore the role of the labor companion, and learn deep relaxation and self hypnosis techniques. The class fee includes a book and two CD’s for relaxation practice.

Check out the following video for an overview of calm, gentle birthing with HypnoBirthing®–The Mongan Method.

Register for one of Beaumont’s Hypnobirthing classes at any time after your first 20 weeks of your pregnancy.

    I very much enjoyed my birthing classes through Beaumont. With the techniques that I learned, I was able to experience feelings of deep relaxation during my entire delivery. Kudos to Beaumont for making my natural birth experience the very best!

    Thanks for the feedback! We are very happy that you enjoyed the classes and that you were able to use what you learned to be seeply relaxed during your baby’s birth. We also know that the techniques learned carry over into life as a parent too 🙂
