BLISSBORN

If you’re unsure of which class to take, consider Blissborn. This class is ideal for parents who:

  • Prefer a natural birth experience
  • Want dad/partner to feel involved with birth
  • Looking for comprehensive independent birth classes
  • A perfect choice for those with an interest in relaxation, guided meditation, or yoga

Blissborn is a childbirth education class emphasizing the power of your own mind to create a blissful birth. You already have everything you need to make it happen, and once you learn how to use it, you’ll unlock that power for yourself. These are the only classes you will need: in five classes, you’ll learn hypnosis, partner skills, anatomy, how to work through fears, pain control techniques, and much, much, more!

These classes are offered as a 5 week series in small groups of 3-4 couples.  Private classes and birth classes via Skype are also available.  Cost includes extra materials, parent book, set of six CD’s, and tote bag to carry it all. 10-12 hours of class time.
