One of the unique perks of using The Birth Centre of Charlottesville is their access to HypnoBirthing classes as you near your birth. 

Hypnobirthing is a philosophy based on the belief that birth is natural and normal. When a woman receives the proper mental, emotional, and spiritual tools for childbirth, she can experience “a gentle, safe, serene, comfortable birth, free of the fear and negative emotions that cause tension and labor pain.” 

HypnoBirthing teaches partners how to best support the laboring mother. It gives mothers the tools to stay relaxed, confident, and comfortable throughout childbirth.
