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.
