What moms are saying about HypnoBirthing ...
"HypnoBirthing class and Mari have saved my baby and me. I had to give birth in the most distressing situation, but thankfully, the breathing technique that I learned helped me get back to birthing my baby. Mari's class really prepares you for all possible situations that can happen to you. Mari puts her heart and soul into helping every couple. Mari is so compassionate, wonderful and accommodating. Please spread your teachings as wide as you can to help more mothers." -Ann T.
"We were second time parents, hoping for a different experience from our first labor and delivery. I’m so glad we took these classes. We learned so much and gained so much confidence. We had our baby girl in less than 2.5 hours of labor. A med-free water birth we so desperately wanted was achieved! Thanks so much for all your knowledge and support!" - Holli P.S.
"AWESOME! The techniques we learned from our private classes with Mari at Phoenix HypnoBirthing are essential skills I will definitely use on before and on our birthing day! I highly recommend Mari as a HypnoBirthing mentor! We are first time parents and the knowledge and insight we learned was amazing! :)" -Emily F.J.
"I really liked Mari and the HypnoBirthing class. As an obstetrician, I've seen many families birth peacefully using HypnoBirthing and I was interested in this experience for myself. I was not comfortable with hiring someone that also was offering doula/lay midwifery services along with HypnoBirthing, and researched many different options in the valley for prenatal HypnoBirthing education. Mari was the clear choice- well educated, knowledgeable in her field, and had an appropriate scope of practice. We did private classes, and she was always on time, enthusiastic, and obviously really cared about our baby and birth experience. She did a good job of making my husband feel included too. I would recommend her to a friend or my patients without hesitation." -Anne K.
Our Philosophy and Class Details:
HypnoBirthing® is the original program using hypnosis for natural childbirth, developed in the 1990's (almost 30 years ago)! The key to natural birth is education, repetition, and ongoing practice! Expectant parents learn to use relaxation, visualization and breathing techniques to help mom connect with her body’s instinctual, organic ability to birth. The comprehensive program is based on the premise that there is no physiological reason for pain in childbirth. Pain in childbirth is a conditioned response. However, if the birthing mother is prepared with breathing, visualization, and relaxation techniques gained through HypnoBirthing, her birth can be organic, joyful, and even spiritual!
Mari, your certified HypnoBirthing Practitioner, will lead you through several relaxation exercises presented in the HypnoBirthing, the Mongan Method book as well as several exercises only found in the curriculum. You will also learn three key breathing techniques as well as optimal positions for relaxation and birthing, among many other related topics. Additionally, you will receive weekly Drop box materials with multiple handouts and weekly emails that provide helpful resources that will provide all the tools you need to help you prepare for a safe, calm and gentle birth. This course is taught over five consecutive, 2.5 hour weekly classes. Course tuition is $300 (HSA & FSA cards accepted), which includes the new HypnoBirthing book 4th Edition, visuals, handouts, three audio tracks, five 2.5 hour sessions and any additional sessions you may want through the time your baby is born- for FREE. You don't have to pay it all up front, you can do a $100 deposit to reserve your seats and pay the balance the first day of class. Moreover, if you are not fully satisfied after the first class you will receive 100% refund!
All expectant moms 12 to 35 weeks pregnant are welcome to join our classes! Special accommodations will be made for moms further in pregnancy. VBAC moms and those planning C-Section can also benefit from HypnoBirthing's wonderful breathing, relaxation, and visualization techniques!
We limit our classes to five families to ensure each family's individual needs are met. A minimum of two families must be registered to form a group class. As an natural extension of our HypnoBirthing philosophy, classes are taught in Mari's home. This home-based approach is important because just like birth, we want you to experience the intimacy of a safe, comfortable, warm environment where you feel relaxed and at home. In this way, we avoid the sterile, cold environments that often come with medical facilities and office settings. So, join us and kick off your shoes, and put you feet up! Group classes are located in Ahwatukee (48th Street & Warner).
Upcoming Group Classes held Sundays from 3:30pm-6:00pm: June 9, June 23, June 30, July 7, July 14 -- Registration Open August 4, August 11, August 18, August 25, September 1 -- Registration Open September 15, September 22, September 29, October 6, October 13 -- Registration Open November 3, November 10, November 17, December 1, December 8 -- -- Registration Open Contact Mari for the 2020 scheduled classes. *Please note: some dates may be subject to change based upon the needs of those in the class.
In the event that a class must be missed due to illness or a planned absence, we will happily schedule a one-to-one class, at the Ahwatukee location free of charge. Make up classes will be held Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 10:30am-12noon. Should a second class need to be missed, the class format will be changed to a semi-private class and an additional $100 fee will be required. The semi-private class tuition is $400.
Private, in-home classes, are currently NOT available at this time.
You had a wonderful birth using HypnoBirthing, but it was years ago that you took the class. You don't have to retake the full class series. You can dust off your HypnoBirthing book and take a "Refresher" class to help bring all the techniques you learned to the forefront. The refresher class is a 1.5 hour class and covers all the key techniques and exercises to help you tap into your inner instincts to birth in comfort and confidence! The costs for a Refresher class is $125. Classes are scheduled according to your availability.
