Your registration fee includes all course materials.


Your registration fee includes all class materials

2.5 hours weekly for 5 weeks

This class is currently being taught ONLINE in a live-taught, interactive format. 

HypnoBirthing® is a comprehensive childbirth preparation course designed to prepare you fully and completely for the birth of your child.

You will learn relaxation and self hypnosis techniques to eliminate the fear and tension that cause long labour and pain, replacing it with confidence, calm, and comfort. In addition to the self-hypnosis techniques described you will understand and appreciate the changes taking place in your body as your body moves through your birthing process.

You will become familiar with common birth interventions and the alternatives, while gaining complete confidence in the birthing experience.

You will also learn:

  • Other techniques to produce a shorter, more comfortable labour
  • The creation and control of the body’s own natural anaesthesia
  • The source of the myth that pain must accompany normal birthing
  • Why women in other cultures have birthing almost entirely free of discomfort
  • How the mother’s body is designed to work in neuromuscular harmony with nature throughout labour
  • The importance of prenatal and perinatal bonding

HypnoBirthing® can help:

  • Eliminate the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome before, during and after birthing
  • Eliminate or greatly reduce the need for chemical painkillers
  • Shorten the first stage of labour by several hours
  • Eliminate fatigue during labour, leaving mother fresh, awake and with energy for actual birthing
  • Eliminates risk of hyperventilation from “shallow” breathing methods
  • Promote special bonding of mother, baby and birthing companion
  • Encourage a more rapid postnatal recovery
  • Return birthing to the beautiful, peaceful experience nature intended
  • Creates a more integral role for the birthing companion

All course materials (Hypnobirthing textbook and MP3 download link) are provided at the first class.

We look forward to meeting you!

  • Liliana CustodioLiliana CustodioHypnoBirthing® Instructor

    Liliana believes that the breath is both an anchor and a doorway in cultivating a quiet mind, a relaxed body and a balanced life.  The breath is a constant regardless of our life’s journey or milestones.  Her interest and passion for embracing life’s moments with complete mind/body presence first led her into the field of social work and then into mindfulness meditation and that is where her own journey into childbirth education began over eight years ago.

    Liliana became a certified HypnoBirthing® Childbirth educator to support women as they connect to their unique, powerful and innate wisdom to give birth in a calm and confident way.  It is a beautiful and sacred moment when women begin to recognize and trust their bodies as their most intimate teacher.  The role of the birth partner throughout the birthing process is no less important as they are the protectors of space and the voice of encouragement and comfort.

    As your journey unfolds, Liliana’s intention is to empower and guide you, along with your birth partner, towards an informed, calm and mindful pregnancy and birthing experience.  She believes every woman has the right to choose and be informed of all her options when it comes to childbirth and to surround herself with health care practitioners that fully support and align with her birth preferences and values.  Liliana would be honoured to be part of your journey by supporting and guiding you in the miracle of birth. If you are interested in connecting on a deeper level to your birthing body and participating with the birthing process, then HypnoBirthing® childbirth classes are for you.
