Hypnobirthing is a method of comprehensive childbirth education that helps pregnant people and their support partners feel confident and excited about their birth.  In addition to learning about the physiological process covered in typical birthing classes, Hypnobirthing also focuses on the emotional and mental preparation for birth.  

In clinical trials, Hypnobirthing has been found to decrease pain intensity, decrease time in active labor, and decrease the number of days spent in hospital.  This is done by disrupting the fear -- tension -- pain cycle, which allows your body and mind to work together in unison.

Hypnobirthing encourages mindful pregnancy practices, a more relaxed birth experience, and often a shorter labor.  The Group Hypnobirthing Course includes six classes focusing on guided Hypnobirthing exercises, evidence based childbirth education, meditation, guided meditation for self-hypnosis, visualization, and comfort measures.  All classes follow the individual needs of the families in class and focus on moving through the changes that pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum bring.



Class 1 - Rational Thought Process & Acknowledging Fears

Class 2 - Meditation and Setting Goals

Class 3 - Comfort Measures and The Birth Process

Class 4 - Baby's First Hour, Postpartum & Lactation, What Your Baby Means To You

Class 5 - Creating a Pregnancy Plan, Examining Cultural Childbirth Myths, Mindfulness, Breathwork, and Birth Positions

Class 6 - Creating a Mindful Birth Plan

Pax & Lux's online Hypnobirthing course uses evidence based mind/body techniques for pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum.​  Hypnobirthing techniques help to dispel old myths about birth, helps parents to process fear, and decrease tension and pain during their birth.  Birth partners are encouraged to attend!

" Connie was a blessing to me during my pregnancy and after my baby arrived. She is calm, comforting, reassuring, knowledgeable, and reliable. I enrolled in Connie’s Hypnobirthing class, which allowed me to think deeply about my pregnancy and the life changes ahead, while also providing valuable tools for a calm and peaceful birth. "

Laura & Joe


" The Hypnobirthing class I took with Connie was very helpful in preparing for my daughter’s birth. The time carved out each week, in the comfort of my own home, helped me focus on my wants and needs for the delivery. The class helped me explore fears I hadn’t realized were present and all together it lead to me not only feeling prepared for whatever the delivery brought, but excited to experience it as well. I felt strong and calm and the Hypnobirthing class, along with having Connie as a doula, played a large role in that."

Rosie & Jeff


" I just had my first virtual class with Pax & Lux, and it was exactly what I needed. Connie is incredibly knowledgeable, approachable, and judgment-free. Every question I had got an evidence-based answer. I highly recommend working with Pax & Lux!"



" Thank you for having me in class!!  I took so much away from it.  It helped prepare  me emotionally and spiritually for what was to come.  And physically by helping me ready the environment and birth setting!  I cannot thank you enough!"

What Evidence Says...

​"Systematic review on hypnosis for pain management during labor and childbirth​:

  • Differences in favor of women (birthing people) in hypnosis groups (p < .05)

    1. ↓ pain intensity

    2. ↓ time in active labor

    3. ↓ number of hospital days

  • Hypnosis training in 1st and 2nd trimester ↓ use of pharmacologic pain relief in labor (RR = .42, p < .00001) but not when training done only in 3rd trimester

  • Hypnosis training with four or more classes ↑ rate of spontaneous vaginal births (RR = 1.59, p = .025) but not less than four classes"

(Madden et al., 2012.  Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews)​

"Hypnosis can alter the higher centers of the central nervous system to relieve pain.  This means that entering into a state of hypnosis may activate mental processes during labor that help to make painful stimulations seem less unpleasant."

(Chaillet et al. 2014. Birth Issues in Perinatal Care)

"Although informative, few hospital-based classes truly prepare a woman (pregnant person) for physiologic childbirth (Simkin & Bolding, 2004, Journal of Midwifery and Women's Health).

For this and other reasons, several different outside-of-hospital classes have been developed that specialize in guiding women (birthing people) through the natural progression of labor and birth."

(Varner C., 2015.  Journal of Perinatal Education)

"The results suggest a positive impact of hypnosis-based interventions on childbirth experience, in alleviating fear and pain and enhancing sense of control during labor. The hypnosis-based interventions improved women's (birthing person's) emotional experiences and outlook towards birth, with less anxiety, increased satisfaction, fewer birth interventions, more postnatal well-being and better childbirth experience overall."

(Catsaros S., 2020. Midwifery Journal)


"Hypnobirthing can be beneficial if it reduces stress and tension, and therefore the stress hormone cortisol.  If a person can move into a more relaxed and mindful state, they help suppress cortisol and allow oxytocin to flow more freely."

Lee Roosevelt, CNM and clinical assistant professor at the University of Michigan School of Nursing

" When I say painless, please understand, I don’t mean you will not feel anything. What you will feel is a lot of pressure; you will feel the might of creation move through you. Pain, however, is associated with something gone wrong. Childbirth is a lot of hard work, and the sensations that accompany it are very strong, but there is nothing wrong with labor."

Guiditta Tornetta, doula and author of Painless Childbirth: An Empowering Journey Through Pregnancy and Birth

" Muscles send messages to each other. Clenched fists, a tight mouth, a furrowed brow, all send signals to the birth-passage muscles, the very ones that need to be loosened. Opening up to relax these upper-body parts relaxes the lower ones. "

Dr. William Sears, MD & Martha Sears, RN, authors of The Birth Book
