Hypnobabies Childbirth Classes
by Lety Knight, Doula & Childbirth Educator
Hypnobabies is a very successful 6 week, 3-hours per week, complete childbirth education course that was adapted with permission from Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth Program” techniques rather than using simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery. This allows our Hypno-Moms to enjoy “eyes-open childbirth hypnosis”, easily remaining deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking and changing positions; being as mobile as they would like to be during childbirth. Hypnobabies is well-known for helping women to create much shorter, easier and more comfortable labors, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be.
Hypnobabies Group Course: $275
Hypnobabies Private Course: $475
Hypnobabies Home-Study Advantage Course: $175

The Birthing Body: Techniques for a medication-free labor
by Rachel Curtis, CLC, certified doula, labor and childbirth educator
Childbirth is one of the most exciting events in a family’s life, and can also be one of the most stressful. Knowledge is potentially the single best tool to dispel fear and anxiety – education is empowerment.
This class emphasizes physiological birth, non-invasive interventions for pain management, and closely examines how maternal and fetal anatomy influence the birth process. Couples will learn in three parts, averaging just over an hour each.
Classes will be scheduled in accordance with demand, and all students must register at (915) 201-0787 with a $50 deposit. The cost is $150 per couple and includes a birth ball, booklet/web app, and refreshments.
