The Hypnobirthing Course

"When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change" - Marie Mongan


The aim of the hypnobirthing course is for you to feel prepared, relaxed and confident about your upcoming birth, and to provide you with tools and knowledge that will help you cope with labour and create a positive birth experience for everyone involved. 


The course is thought in English and consists of five sessions of approximately 2-2,5 h each, once a week during five consecutive weeks. They are spread like this to give you time to practice and integrate the techniques you will learn.

The HypnoBirthing Advantage:

  • Eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome

  • Reduces the need for chemical anesthesia, episiotomy, and other interventions

  • Lessens fatigue during labor

  • Often shortens labor 

  • Reduces risk of pelvic floor damage

  • Brings the mother, the baby, and the birthing partner together in a wonderful bonding experience

  • The birthing partner is an integral part of the birth, not an onlooker

  • Gentle birth leads to easier emotional and physical post-partum recovery

  • Babies are better adjusted and happier

  • Birthing is returned to the safe, beautiful, peaceful experience that nature intended
