Experience an intimate, comfortable, and safe space to discover what it means to "birth from within." Using various mediums to help you process in your own unique way, we will help you find the answer to the question "What do I need to know to birth my baby?" Based on your needs, a varying menu of topics will be discussed throughout the workshop, with the majority of our time centered on building a pain-coping mindset. Other topics may include: coping and comfort practices, how labour works, stages of labour, hormones of labour, labour etiquette for birth partners, how to make informed decisions, hospital practices (including medicated pain management options, home birth and birth centre practices, feeding and newborn care, postpartum preparation, and transitioning into parenthood.

Hypnobabies is a very successful 6 week, 3-hours per week, complete childbirth education course. It goes way beyond simple relaxation, breathing and guided imagery, instead teaching mothers very powerful self-hypnosis techniques. This allows our Hypno-Moms to enjoy "eyes-open childbirth hypnosis", easily remaining deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking and changing positions, and being as mobile as they would like to be during childbirth. Hypnobabies is well-known for helping women to create much shorter, easier and more comfortable labours, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be. Check out the testimonials and birth stories on my website! Comforting Hands also offers Birth Doula Services.
