Hypnobabies is a very successful 6 week, 3-hours per week, complete childbirth education course. With the use of real, medical-grade hypnosis and the type of hypnotic compounding (repetition) that our Hypnobabies students learn, practice, and use during labor, normal birthing sensations can easily be transformed into pleasurable ones. 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.
Cost: $350, includes materials

Infant Massage

Infant Massage has numerous therapeutic benefits for babies and children, and for parents and caregivers as well. When babies come into this world,  sometimes it’s challenging to learn how to adapt. Babies have a lot going on in their first few years. Eating, digesting, new sensations in and on their bodies, sleep, and developmental changes are all brand new. The changes take time to learn and adjust to – for everyone. Infant Massage helps calm their nervous system, releases tension from learning new skills, and helps to relieve growing pains. This puts babies (and their parents and caregivers) in a restful and relaxed state.
