HypnoBirthing In-Person Class

Hey there! I’m Marie and I’m a firm believer that your journey into motherhood, from conception to birth and beyond, is truly one of the most transformative and remarkable experiences you’ll ever experience! 

That has been true for me for my own babies, and you’ve got that same magic inside you, too! I believe your birth can truly be an amazing and rewarding experience for you!

And guess what? You’re already wired with everything you need for an amazing birth.

But here’s the thing: our culture combined with life’s hustle and bustle can drown out those natural instincts. That’s where I step in! I’m all about helping expecting parents like you tap into those innate abilities so that you can LOVE YOUR BIRTH.

HypnoBirthing will help you to trust in your body, your baby, and the remarkable process of birth. By practicing a few key techniques, you’ll train your mind and condition your body to birth more easily.

You will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles work in harmony – as they were designed to – when your body is sufficiently relaxed and you trust birth. You will learn how to achieve this kind of relaxation, free of the resistance that fear creates, and you will learn to use your natural birthing instincts for a calm, serene, and more comfortable birth.

When you have your baby with HypnoBirthing, you will not be in a trance or asleep. What you will experience is similar to the daydreaming or focusing, that occurs when you are engrossed in a book or a movie or staring into a fire.

You will be conversant and in good spirits – totally relaxed, but fully in control. Awake throughout, you will be aware of your body’s surges and your baby’s progress; working with your body. In this calm state, your body’s natural relaxant, endorphins, replaces the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.

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.

One of the best things about HypnoBirthing is that you cannot fail at it. There is no “right” way to HypnoBirth. Home birth… cesarean birth… induction… birth center… epidural… this program will give you the tools to stay calm and relaxed no matter how your birth story unfolds – planned or not! Even better is that when you prepare with HypnoBirthing, your odds of needing medication or intervention actually go down; let’s allow the numbers to speak for themselves, shall we?

What Makes HypnoBirthing With Marie Unique?

  • I have over 15 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.  You’ll also create your personal energy booster blend to help you maintain clear breathing and good energy levels throughout labour.
  • BirthBliss Pregnancy Relaxation Album.  This unique album is like a lullaby to your nervous system, allowing you to create more peace and ease.  It includes a guided visualization for a satisfying birth, affirmations for pregnancy and for birth, as well as a deep restorative prenatal guided relaxation.
  • Baby Care Class.  The hypnobirthing curriculum ends with birth, but most expecting parents realize that birth is just the beginning of your journey.  As a bonus, you’ll receive my online baby care course, where we focus on the stuff that makes the biggest difference to you as new parents (stuff you don’t learn anywhere else):  how to make breastfeeding easier, 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.

Curious if HypnoBirthing would be a good fit for you?
Check and see if some of these statements feel true for you.

  • “It would be amazing if my birth could be a positive experience, and I would love to feel calmer about the whole thing.
  • “I want a gentle birth, and natural too if possible.”
  • “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!!!”

“Thanks again for all you’ve done to help make Jordyn’s birth such an empowering experience. I feel forever grateful that you do what you do.” ~Cheryl Loeppky, mom to Payton and Jordyn.
