Hypnobirting Group Course


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 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 - The Birth Process -- Childbirth Education Class

Class 4 - Baby's First Hour, Postpartum & Lactation,

What Your Baby Means To You

Class 5 - Comfort Measures, Breathwork, and Birth Positions

Independent work:  Creating a Pregnancy Plan, Examining Cultural Childbirth Myths, Mindfulness Exercise

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.

This Hypnobirthing course is also a solid match for training Doulas and Student Midwives seeking an out-of-hospital childbirth education course, and are wanting to dive deeper into adding to their skill set.
