NewBorn Concepts - HypnoBirthingHypnotic relaxation, imagery and breathing will greatly elevate your birth to the most rewarding, empowering and fulfilling experience you can imagine. HypnoBirthing® childbirth classes are designed to provide pregnant women and their birth partners with the skills needed to reduce the Fear-Tension-Pain cycle. By learning self-hypnosis skills along with the physiology of birth, women can greatly reduce stress during the birth process for themselves, their birth partners and their babies. Your body's natural anesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones that contribute to pain. When it is time for your baby to be born, you will be fully awake and involved. Studies show this method can shorten the first stage of labor by several hours and greatly reduces the need for interventions. Many mothers believe it reduced fatigue during labor, promoted a special bond between them and their baby and their birth companion and they had a rapid postnatal recovery. Affiliated with the HypnoBirthing® Institute.Chester*Main Site (NewBorn Concepts)NewBorn Concepts
