HypnoBirthing is our most popular Birth 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 know that with fear comes tension, and with tension, comes pain.  HypnoBirthing reduces that tension so you can birth in a calm and comfortable environment.

Why HypnoBirthing?

HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method, is a comprehensive and evidence-based childbirth education program.

The exclusive techniques taught in HypnoBirthing courses help moms not only prepare for labor and birth but are also helpful in everyday life. HypnoBirthing classes are also beneficial for women and families interested in having their partners play an active role on birthing day.

HypnoBirthing can be for mothers look to have a natural or C-section birth.  Our calming techniques prepare mothers for all circumstances in birth. First time mom, or third time mom.

Additionally a calm labor can often be shorter.
