Starting our Birthing Classes this week!!

I am so pumped to be starting our Birth Classes this week. We are doing a hybrid Hypnobirthing/Bradley Method class with a former hypnobirthing instructor that has created a bit of a tailored class (based on her years of being an experienced doula & hypnobirthing instructor). I am so excited to finally start this process & get myself & husband prepared for labor!!! Also, she is due with her 2nd baby in September (Im due 9/16!) so she can relate to SO many things that much better!

How fun! Can't wait for ours :)


What is the difference between hypnobirthing and Bradley method by the way?

They are very similar really - both really focusing on relaxation & breathing for the goal of a natural birth. It teaches you to be aware of exactly what your body is doing from the moment you go into labor. Hypnobirthing just draws you into an even deeper relaxation to where the pain can be dramatically reduced...

How fast did that come round?!  So excited for you!


My friend did hypnobirthing and said it was incredible and really helped her!  Hope it does the same for you :-) 


Please let us know how it goes

We didnt end up going through our hospital since the classes they offered didnt fit our schedules (which was a bit of a bummer since they are so much more affordable). I originally wanted to the Bradley Method but when looking at the 12 consecutive weeks of classes, it was just a bit too much for us to be able to realistically commit to. Then I stumbled upon our intructors website through yelp & her experience with both hypno & bradley were impressive & the fact that it was just 6 weeks (versus 12 weeks) was ideal for us too. So its like the best both worlds in one. I am hoping & praying this class helps prepare us both like promised!


@adamsapple - I know! I also have my baby showers on the calendar to gear up for, first of them being THIS SUNDAY. Its crazy how time has been flying recently... I am sure it is going to slow down soon though :(
