HypnoBirthing® Prenatal Classes

“When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change.” ~ Marie Mongan, Hypnobirthing

HypnoBirthing® is a complete childbirth education course that will fully prepare you for the birth of your baby. You will learn about routine interventions and alternatives so you can make informed choices that are right for you and your baby.  This creates an empowering experience, allowing you to feel positive about your birthing journey.

You will come to understand how fear causes tension and pain, and leads to  prolonged labour.  You will be given relaxation tools and self-hypnosis techniques to remove fear, so that you can birth instinctively, calmly and confidently.

Despite the name there are no swinging pendulums and quacking like a duck!  That’s entertainment hypnosis and very different then the tools you will be given to achieve deep relaxation through self-hypnosis.

​All other female mammals birth in relative ease, as do women in many other cultures.  It’s Tahira’s intention to help women reconnect with their innate birthing wisdom.
