FAQs

Q: I am expecting my first baby and I have been thinking of taking classes to help me prepare for labor. I keep hearing about HypnoBirthing as a good option—what can I expect to gain from these classes?

A: Lately, we have been hearing more and more about the “mind over body” concept. Our mind is an amazing gift, and the use of techniques for positive thinking is truly a source of strength. Understanding that the psychological well-being of a pregnant mother affects her unborn child, and working on creating new and healthy thought processes in preparation for birth and parenthood, can be an important and powerful experience. 

I teach HypnoBirthing classes, where I train families to gain an understanding of the physiological, psychological, and emotional aspects of pregnancy and birth. Positive affirmations, meditation, breathing, visualization, and relaxation techniques all come together to help create a serene atmosphere for birth.

Although our focus is on the labor and birth experience for mother, father, and baby, many families have expressed using the skills gained in HypnoBirthing in many different aspects of their lives. 

There are many conscious and subconscious thoughts about birth and we address these, as they play an integral role in the birth process. In HypnoBirthing, we aim to help eliminate the fear-tension-pain cycle, which can hinder the progression of labor. 

Every woman has instinctive abilities to birth her child, and this complete childbirth course helps build the confidence a woman needs to listen to those instincts. They help by creating a foundation for parenthood. Partners can play an integral role in the labor as well. As the skills learned are applied, each woman can feel more mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically prepared to create the atmosphere in which she wants to birth her baby. 

In these classes you will be provided with the latest edition of the HypnoBirthing book, a booklet of handouts, a CD and a downloadable card with tracks. Classes can be taken individually, with your partner, or in a group setting. 

Give yourself and your baby the experience of a gentle birth! 

 

Testimonials

Joseph (1st Time Dad)

“It is difficult, if not frightening, to imagine going through the childbirth process without the expert and indispensable help of Mrs. Steiner. As a husband, whose wife was, quite understandably, more than a little nervous about giving birth, it was hard sometimes to try and find the right things to say and do. Enter Mrs. Steiner. Her calm, encouraging, and informative methods offered my wife and I immeasurable peace of mind. From the early stages of pregnancy, when she would help us prepare emotionally and physically, to the birth itself, when she helped us navigate our way through the hospital to the appropriate rooms and nurses, as well as assisting us with all of the medical jargon, and of course- the actual birth. From the postpartum check-ups, to just coming over to see us (and especially our new daughter), Mrs. Steiner has transcended the traditional role of doula into something more like a loving family member. Though she has certainly done this many times before, never did we feel as if we were just another client; she always offered her time, and vast experience. In her unique way, she not only managed to effectively quell our nervousness and apprehension, but was able to help us appreciate the incredible experience and blessing that the process of having a child truly is."

Rachel (1st baby)

"Shoshana helped me prepare for giving birth and kept me calm and comfortable throughout labor and delivery. Her gentle words of encouragement and HypnoBirthing techniques made it possible for me to have a natural delivery with confidence!"


Aliza (1st baby)


"Shoshana did an incredible job in teaching us the HypnoBirthing philosophy. She is extremely knowledgeable and taught us a lot. She is kind, genuine, and warm. Her guidance helped us deepen our connection with our baby before being born. Also, she helped us work through all birthing fears to see the miracle of birth for what it truly is!"

Miriam (6th baby)

"Shoshana was so reassuring, comforting and went above & beyond the call of duty."
