Hypnobirthing at StarkSanft teaches parents-to-be how to naturally minimize potential pain and make birth a wonderful experience that both partners can be proud of. Couples also learn what choices they have about the birth (for example, where, with whom, in what positions, water birth or not and pain management). Best of all, the tools and techniques you will learn in order to achieve the birth that you want, can be taken with you and applied to other areas in your life – such as the challenges you will face as a new parent, in your place of work – so that you can become a more resilient and confident you.
The hypnobirthing program I offer is based on the original HypnoBirthing method as developed by Marie Mongan (United States). I also bring in other elements from the Wise Hippo program (Great Britain), as well as my own research on the parent-child-bonding process and maternal mental health. My classes are custom tailored to your needs and personal goals.

Many expectant parents experience some level of anxiety, worry and sometimes distress as the expected due date gets closer. While this is a frequent occurrence, it is still important not to ignore these feelings. Stress in particular can have negative consequences on your health, Baby's health and the birth. In birth meditations we devote 45 minutes to calming mind and body (and Baby's body) and mentally preparing for the big day.
