Meet with other couples in a series of 5 classes (usually weekly) and you are welcome to return to ANY class or class series in your pregnancy at no additional charge. Lots of practice time in class. Videos are part of every class.
When your schedule doesn't match up to the group class schedule, or if you are very close to your due date and haven't been able to get into a group class, we can create a private class for just you and your birth companion. Same material is covered as in group class.

This class is powerful, no matter when you take it. Starting earlier in pregnancy is great, IMO. You will saturate your nervous system with the positive messages you create about birth as you dive into your practice. You also get to return to any class later in pregnancy, at no additional charge. Even moms who begin very late in pregnancy report how much the practice helped them during their labor.
When is the best time to take the class?
HypnoBirthing is different than other childbirth classes, where you might “cram” at the end of pregnancy, and learn some techniques, etc. The sooner you begin, the better. This is because you are saturating your nervous system with the messages you want and choose as you do your practice. You are literally creating new neural pathways in your brain. People often ask about what if they have to miss a class or two, are going out of town on vacation, or what if they are only 8 weeks pregnant? I encourage you to dive in now, and complete any missed classes in a future series (no extra cost).
Who can come to class with me?
The class is designed for couples, and you are welcome to bring a doula, etc if that person will be a main support for you during your labor. If your birthing partner cannot attend the class with you, we will partner with you in any exercise that is designed for two.
What makes this class stand out from other classes?
Because you train yourself to work with mind and body, HypnoBirthing lasts a lifetime. When we birth our babies gently and easily with calmness and love we are giving them the foundational security of feeling welcomed and loved throughout life. For mothers this calm confident way of opening and breathing a baby into the world brings empowerment extraordinaire. For birth partners and fathers, active participation creates an extreme loving bond that begins before birth and lasts for a lifetime.
I’ve been working to help women in natural birth for over 30 years and HypnoBirthing is THE MOST EFFECTIVE philosophy and technique for childbirth preparation that I have ever encountered.
HypnoBirthing moms are more conscious, more alert, more aware than I have seen in other moms during childbirth. They are deeply focused within, but they are NOT in some kind of far-away trance state, or out of the body state. It is very common for a HypnoBirthing mom to tell ME when she knows her waters are about to release, or that she knows and feels her baby moving down. Deep calm relaxing, lots of focus and connection with baby, less “drama” = more PRESENCE HypnoBirthing in Ashland HypnoBirthing in Medford Childbirth Class in Medford
