HypnoBirthing® Classes in Greater Boston and the Northeast

HypnoBirthing is a five-week, 15-hour comprehensive course designed to help you prepare for birth using deep relaxation and meditation. It is taught at Stork Ready at our charming North Reading, MA location, a warm and relaxing environment centered around giving you the highest level of support as you transition into parenthood.

Why Choose HypnoBirthing?

Pregnancy is truly an amazing time in your life. It should also be an exciting time- planning, dreaming, wondering. People telling you you’re glowing! In the same breath though- those people want to tell you how awful giving birth is. Talk about taking the wind right out of your beautiful, glowing sails…

HypnoBirthing® childbirth classes are all about building a positive expectancy for this crazy, wonderful adventure you are about to go on. I will teach you all about how your rockin’ pregnant body is built for birth. You’ll learn deep meditation techniques which you will use not only for birth but for the rest of your life in those moments when you need calm and serenity (hello toddler tantrums!). You will also have the opportunity to release any fears, stories, or experiences which may have the potential to hold you back from having the positive birth you’ve been dreaming about. Those things can hinder your body’s ability to give birth comfortably and have no place in your birth space. I draw on my personal experience and knowledge as a professional birth doula and HypnoBirthing mom to ensure that you come out of class feeling extremely well prepared!

“HypnoBirthing childbirth classes worked better for us than we had even hoped…

The discomfort I felt was minuscule compared to my previous births as a result of my deep relaxation. I credit the fact that this was my shortest labor, least time spent pushing, and only birth where I did not tear to the fact that we used HypnoBirthing this time. Thank you so much for everything!! We are so grateful we found HypnoBirthing. I will forever recommend it to expectant couples whether experiencing their first or a subsequent pregnancy.”
