Are some of these statements true for you?

  • “I want a natural birth. I don’t want to be medicated when I have my baby.”
  • “I never thought having a baby would be so complicated! There’s so many tests and scenarios being presented to me that are frightening.”
  • “I’ve had a good pregnancy, but people keep telling me horror stories about their labours and what happens in the hospital. As much as I try to ignore them, it makes me nervous.”
  • “I want my husband to share the birth experience, but right now he’s feeling kind of removed and helpless even though I know he wants to support me. He thinks all I’m going to do is yell at him during the labour and that he’ll pace in the hallway- he’s watched way too many sitcoms. We heard HypnoBirthing® really involves the dads.”
  • hypnobirthing“My first labour experience was a nightmare. I felt like I had no control over what happened and just survived the process. My husband and I are determined to find a better way.”
  • “My friend had a wonderful, drug-free birth experience that she seems transformed by. She told me that I had to learn HypnoBirthing® when I got pregnant. And her baby is so sweet-tempered. She credits the class for that too!”
  • “Women have been having babies since the beginning of time. Instinctively epidurals just don’t make sense to me.”
  • “How does this… get out of that? Help!!!”

 

HypnoBirthing® is a safe and amazingly effective way to have a relaxing and calm natural childbirth. This unique childbirth preparation addressed these concerns so that you can focus on having the positive birth experience that you want.

“The birth was the most beautiful and empowering time I will ever have in my life.”  Laura England, mom to Myla

HypnoBirthing® will help you to trust in your body, your baby and the remarkable process of birth. It combines the best of natural childbirth education with hypnosis. By replacing fear and tension with deep relaxation, you do not have to experience acute pain during birth – the natural process of birth works best when you are sufficiently relaxed. HypnoBirthing returns birthing to the beautiful, peaceful experience nature intended.
Through the classes, you will learn proven techniques for relaxation, visualization and breathing that allows you to enter a state of self-hypnosis. While in this state, you will birth your baby in a more comfortable manner: alert, relaxed, free from harmful drugs.  The Scientific Research confirms that preparing for birth in this way is associated with shorter labours, fewer invasive interventions, and a significant reduction in the need for any pain medication.

“Thank you very much for such a wonderful, inspiring birth class. We enjoyed every minute of it, & knew it would fit us and our philosophies. What an honour to heave the option of such an amazing class here in Regina.” Erinn and Mike Knoll

In fact, many women experience little or no discomfort during their labour.

“I think the most beneficial thing was learning to trust myself, my body and the baby and coming to truly believe in the immense strength within us both. Yours was the little voice in my head during labour, helping me to stay calm and trust the process and I wanted to make sure you knew what a positive impact you had on the birth and life of baby Gaia. Thank you so much!”   ~Risa Payant, mom to Gaia

 

What Makes HypnoBirthing With Marie Unique?

  • I have over 10 years experience teaching women the hypnobirthing techniques.  This depth of experience allows me to easily adapt the practices so that they will work for you and your individual needs.
  • Deep training in self hypnosis.  As a trained hypnotist, I’m able to take you a step deeper into the mind training that you will use to birth your baby.
  • Acupressure – I’ll teach you and your partner how to use acupressure points during labour to increase your ease and comfort.  This marvellous tool is not a part of the hypnobirthing curriculum, it’s unique to my class.
  • Essential Oils.  These are another powerful tool for shifting the mind and the body into the relaxed parasympathetic side of the nervous system.  During the course, you’ll be creating your own signature relaxation blend, which you’ll use to instantly anchor yourself to your deeply relaxed state.
  • Baby Care Class.  The hypnobirthing curriculum ends with birth, but most expecting parents realize that birth is just the beginning of your journey.  In the bonus 6th class, the baby care class, we focus of the stuff that makes the biggest difference to as new parents (stuff you don’t learn anywhere else).   How to make breastfeeding easier, and how to understand your baby’s cries so you can more easily meet their needs, and how to soothe them so they needn’t cry.  The approach for all of this is (just like with hypnobirthing) that when we learn to work with built-in systems of the body, and everything goes so much more smoothly.

“Being somewhat skeptical of hypnobirthing I have certainly changed my mind after seeing our daughter born. The birth was very calm and mom seemed almost too relaxed, even without an epidural or any medication. The labour was extremely fast and our daughter had no marks, scrapes, bruises or any problems and neither did mom. I would strongly suggest hypnobirthing to anyone, and already have to some family expecting family members.” Jared Ward
