Hypnobirthing Workshop

with Erin

Hypnobirthing is a great compliment to your learning, and support, at Coastside Birth Options.

In this 5 week course, 2.5 hours a week taught live online, you will receive a complete birth education that emphasizes how to use the brain-body connection to allow birth to unfold in the best way for you and your baby.

Beyond learning the physiology of birth, all about pre-birth bonding, birthing positions, relaxation techniques, how to communicate with your care team, and comfort measures, you will learn the power of the mind and breath to help your body do what it already knows how to do, when the mind doesn't get in the way!

We also dive into bonding after birth, discuss breastfeeding, and planning for your postpartum experience. The mind-body tools and techniques you learn in class will teach you how to get from a place of worry, anxiety, fear and unhelpful thoughts to a place of calm confidence and in touch with your intuition. These techniques can change how you think of your mind and really understand that you are indeed in the driver's seat and that you can absolutely be your best now, in birth, and everything after. After all, we know the body can birth, but are you ready to allow it to?
