We know you have many choices and many decisions to make for your birthing experience.


You have choices in selecting your care provider; you have choices in selecting the environment in which you will bring your baby into the world.


Another important choice is that of the childbirth education classes you will choose to prepare for the birth of your baby.


Hypnobirthing Classes are taught in a format of five, 2.5 – 3 hour classes.


Private Classes are also available, and if you require, in your own home.
