Hypnosis is nothing more than deep relaxation and focused concentration.  Join HypnoBirthing parents Janice & Will Rex-Weaver of Peaceful Birthing, as they share why a relaxed body experiences comfortable childbirth and how fear affects labor and intensifies sensations while birthing.  Peaceful Birthing teaches expectant parents HypnoBirthing childbirth education, a beautiful method which combines relaxation, breathing and visualization techniques to ease pain and empower women to release fear & build confidence, whether birthing at home or in a hospital setting.  With fear and stress absent from the birth experience it can become what nature intended for it to be, safe, relaxed and a beautiful bonding experience for Mother, Baby and Partner too!   www.YourPeacefulBirthing.com
