Class 5: Putting it all Together
 
Put together all the skills and info from the first four classes so you’ll feel confident and excited about your birth. Learn all about birth plans, labor positions and the pushing phase. Partners practice their ‘duties’ and special hypnosis techniques. Look beyond birth to your plans for the baby. Learn how to use hypnosis to speed healing, jumpstart breastfeeding and get by on less sleep. In hypnosis, create the blueprint for the labor and birth you desire.
