Learn the art of Hypnobirthing from Gina Morin in this 5 week virtual course. Hypnobirthing helps teach the tools you will need to experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear that prevents the muscles of your body from functioning as nature intended them to. In this calm state, your body’s natural relaxant, endorphins, replaces the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.

Five part virtual class begins March 1st
$350 for course plus $20 for book.
