Hypnobabies Birthing Classes
Is a very successful 6 week complete childbirth education course using Gerald Kein’s Painless Childbirth techniques, instead of simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery. This allows our Hypno Moms to enjoy “Eyes wide open Childbirth Hypnosis” easily remaining in hypnosis while walking, talking and changing positions; being as mobile as they want during childbirth. Many of our moms experience much shorter, easier, and more comfortable labors, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be…

Pre-natal Yoga & Mediation
Did you know pre-natal yoga is one of the best things you can do for you and your growing baby?
Develop strength and stamina – As baby grows within our body, more strength and stamina is needed to be able to carry the extra weight. Yoga poses strengthen our hips, back, arms and shoulders.
Balance – Our balance is challenged physically as the fetus grows within our body. Emotionally we are drained due to the increases in progesterone and estrogen. As we try to focus on holding and breathing through each yoga pose, we are able to fine tune our balance, physically and emotionally.
Calms nervous system – Through deep breathing, the nervous system goes into parasympathetic mode, which is responsible for relaxation. When our bodies are in that mode, our digestions operate properly, we tend to sleep better, and our immune system is at its optimal.
Preparation for labor – You are working with conscious breathing during each yoga pose, which may sometimes be challenging. This transfers into the time of labor, allowing one to practice being “comfortable with the uncomfortable” through our breath-work. As you inhale, you acknowledge the tension that is felt. As you deeply exhale, you let go of it more and more with each breath.
Connecting with baby – A prenatal yoga practice allows us to slow down and focus attention on what is going on within our bodies. Through working with our breath and doing each pose, you become more aware of what is going on within.

Women are givers, but giving themselves priority doesn’t always happen. Taking some time for yourself should be a priority. During post-natal yoga classes, the focus is on you, mama, so you will be refreshed and ready to parent again!
Community – Connect with your peers about the challenges and joys of being a new mother.
Rebuild flexibility and muscle tone – Help your body handle the new demands of caring for your baby. Developing strength in abdominal and back muscles reduces postpartum back pain (Gustafsson and Nilsson-Wikmar 2008).
Tone and stretch your upper body – Toning your arms can stave off soreness that comes from constantly picking up your child. The average newborn weights 7.5 pounds and gets picked up about 50 times each day.
Stretch those achy shoulders and back – Breastfeeding can cause the spine and shoulders to become rounded and sore.
The postpartum period lasts up to two years, so practicing yoga is a great way to get your strength back, take time for yourself, and even prepare for the next baby. You deserve this time for yourself!
