Just in case you're unfamiliar, what is hypnobirthing? Hypnobirthing combines breathing, visualization and relaxation techniques to help with the release of fears, limiting beliefs and anxiety (both conscious and unconscious) that we may feel about birth. Practicing these techniques can greatly influence how we experience our birth by helping us feel more relaxed, confident and connected during the birthing process. Who are these classes for? - You are pregnant (in your 2nd trimester and onwards) and would like to feel more positive and confident about your upcoming birth. - You might be feeling anxiety about giving birth and would like to learn more about hypnobirthing and how it can help ease your fear. - You would like to learn more about labour and birthing positions that can help with a more efficient delivery and less damage to the pelvic floor. - You are curious about other tools and techniques that can help you cope during birth. Regardless of whether this is your first birth or if you have given birth before - Our aim is for you to feel more calm and confident, helping you to experience a positive and empowered pregnancy and birth. **For payment - If you prefer to pay by e-transfer, please select "Manual Payment" and transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hours of registering to secure your spot.
