HypnoBirthing Classes

A Gentle, Calm approach to Birth.

HypnoBirthing is our most popular class at Sakinah Birth, and there’s a good reason why.

The philosophy is simple.  Childbirth is instinctive.

The preconceived fear, anxiety and anguish that we have come to know as normal with childbirth doesn’t have to exist.


At Sakinah Birth we know birth doesn’t have to be feared, awful or painful.

We teach women how to have an AMAZING birth and postpartum recovery.

Jihan was such an amazing instructor for hypnobirthing! Her classes were informative and engaging. She walked me through relaxation techniques, answered questions and was so patient and sweet. This was my third birth but first homebirth and she gave me the tools and the confidence to make it an amazing experience! I have long labors and hypnobirthing really helped me let go, conserve my energy, and helped me to bring my sweet boy earthside. I highly highly recommend you take hypnobirthing with her! So empowering!
