September-October Hypnobirthing Class (Virtual)

Learn from the comfort of home with the Upper Midwest's most experienced instructor! Hypnobirthing is a fully-comprehensive childbirth preparation course that harnesses the power of the mind-body connection. Together, we take you from uncertainty to confidence. In addition to learning the ins and outs of the physiology and stages of labor, you will learn how to have a more calm, confident birth experience through the use of techniques such as breathing, visualization, affirmations, deep relaxation, and self-hypnosis (which is a natural state of mind). The benefits of these techniques are supported by medical research. Most importantly, we have fun! Flutterby is inclusive and affirming of birthing people and families of all backgrounds, and is an LGBTQIA+ safe space. Students from all of the 48 contiguous US States are welcome.
