HypnoBirthing is a relaxed and stress-free way to give birth, based on the belief that all babies should be born in an atmosphere of warmth, calm, and joy. If the mother is physically, mentally and spiritually well-prepared for childbirth, she can bring her baby into the world with confidence and comfort.

The ‘Hypno’ in HypnoBirthing stands for hypnosis – self-hypnosis. This does not mean that you are subjected to the will of another or unaware of what is happening, as seen on TV. On the contrary, you learn to bring yourself into an ultimate state of relaxation, regardless of where you are, in deep focus but fully conscious. In this state, you can release limiting beliefs and fears and replace them with thoughts that strengthen your confidence.
