HypnoMothering Class

The first three months of a baby’s life out of the womb are referred to by many as the “fourth trimester” – and while the baby is no longer in the womb they are still helpless in so many ways and fully dependent on their mother.

These first three months out of the womb are also the first third of what is sometimes referred to as “exterior gestation.” This term comes from the belief that infants are born before their brains are fully matured (because their heads would be too large to fit through the birth path at full maturity) so, their brains finish growing when they are outside the womb.

This is a period of time that, in many ways, is more challenging for the mother than the first three trimesters.

During this “fourth trimester”, the mother can no longer just take care of herself and trust that her baby will receive all he requires (as she did in the first three trimesters) – she now has to be really intentional about caring for her own needs, while also of course caring for her infant who is now much more demanding than he was in the womb – it can understandably be incredibly challenging!

Enter HypnoMothering, a 2.5 hour class for moms to be, new mothers, and moms of young children. Developed by two hypnotherapists, each a mother of twins, this fun, practical class teaches mothers easy and fast self-hypnosis techniques to make the most of limited sleep, keep calm and balanced on challenging days, and find focus and mindfulness amidst the myriad of feelings that mothers face.
