Relaxation for Comfortable Childbirth
Monday, April 14th
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Cafe, FREE

Most of us have been conditioned to fear birth. This extreme fear causes our bodies to become tense during labor, and that tension often prevents the normal, physiological function of birth.  The result? Long, painful, unsatisfying birth experiences.  Join Janice Weaver of Peaceful Birthing to discover the benefits HypnoBirthing® - a beautiful and easy to learn method which combines relaxation, breathing and visualization techniques to ease pain and empower women to release fear and build confidence, whether birthing at home or a hospital setting. With fear and stress removed from the birth experience, birth becomes a safe, joyful and beautiful bonding experience. www.YourPeacefulBirthing.com
