Workshop for Health Professionals

Calling all doctors, doulas, midwives, nurses, women’s health physiotherapists, and other health providers. We encourage you to attend a workshop so that you can gain all of the information needed to professionally support HypnoBirthing parents in any birth setting.

Supporting HypnoBirthing Parents in Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond

Gain A Fresh Perspective & New Tools for Supporting Birth

A childbirth education program recognized internationally, HypnoBirthing is a leading program in preparing parents for birth. Education is a key component in creating positive outcomes for parents and babies during this life-altering event. Our program is currently offered in 46 countries across the globe, taught by fully trained and certified Gold Seat Educators.

The United States has some of the worst fetal and maternal outcomes of any developed country, and many countries across the world are seeing increased intervention rates. Now more than ever, expecting parents are seeking care providers who trust in and support a woman’s ability to birth their baby as nature intended. Building a strong network and community that works together, will allow families to focus on positive birth outcomes, and impact our ‘toward normal birth’ focus. This program is a one-day workshop for health professionals, provides traditionally trained doulas, midwives, nurses and health professionals with the specific techniques and philosophical information needed to professionally support HypnoBirthing couples in any birth setting.

Through participation in the Workshop for Health Professionals you will:

  • Understand the unique benefits HypnoBirthing offers, learn about the philosophy & the Gold Seal that is establishing best practice in the U.S. and across the globe, as well as recognize how it differs from other methods.
  • Learn the physiology of the uterus during labor, exploring the muscle interaction, blood flow & biochemical function. Examine the role of the autonomic nervous system upon fear.
  • Understand the differences between HypnoBirthing & medical terminology, & learn to communicate with a HypnoBirthing family, understanding the partners role & the common birthing preferences they choose.
  • Explore the various states of hypnosis, and the mind body connection in birthing.
  • Consider the impact of integrating HypnoBirthing with the current care in hospitals & learn about HypnoBirthing techniques that can be implemented
    to support a positive birth outcome.
  • Discuss & explore options to support families experiencing special circumstances in birth & develop appropriate skills to support natural birth & a HypnoBirthing couple.

This course has empowered me to relate to birthing women on a totally different level. I will be able to be actively involved and support the women that have chosen HypnoBirthing. This course has definitely opened my eyes to approach birthing from a different angle.
