Coming to the SweetLight Center this spring: two Hypnobirthing series! Here’s what instructor Lori Reising has to say:
HypnoBirthing® is a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm, and joy. When a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally, and spiritually, she can experience that sort of joy, birthing her baby is easier, more comfortable, and often, even in a pain-free manner. Through a well-thought-out program of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis and education, HypnoBirthing® returns to a woman the art of birthing in a way that allows her to summon her natural birthing instincts and to birth in safety and with ease.
Classes are five 2.5 hour sessions. Choose from these two options:
Begins Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:30 pm (5-week series)
Begins Tuesday, July 5th, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:30 pm (5-week series)
