With Lauralyn Curtis Kohl of HypnoActive Birth

Empowering expectant couples with training, connection, and relaxation techniques for an amazing birth experience!

Eliminate the Fear Surrounding Birth

Many pregnant women (and their partners) experience fear and anxiety when thinking about their upcoming birth experience, but it doesn’t need to be that way. What if you could replace that fear with confidence? When you and your partner are aligned with a plan and equipped with the right knowledge and training, you will be well on your way to having a happy, healthy, beautiful birth experience.

  • Is this just for first-time parents?
    No, many parents didn’t have adequate training with their first birth and are looking forward to a better experience the next time. Even parents who have taken Lauralyn’s classes previously will benefit the reminders, additional practice, and fun time together with their partner.
  • Is this class for natural birth only?
    No. Whether vaginal or cesarean, medicated or unmedicated, water birth or dry land, home or hospital, every birthing parent deserves to feel completely supported, prepared, and confident on their journey through birth.
  • Is this a substitute for a childbirth education class?
    Yes, this retreat will cover many of the foundational aspects of a birth class as well as provide in-depth experience for couples to learn techniques to remove fear and pain from delivery. For a broader coverage of childbirth education, Lauralyn offers a six week course.
  • What should I bring?
    An open mind, receptive heart, and positive attitude.
  • What is the dress code?
    Wear clothes that are comfortable for relaxation and movement during the hands-on portions of training. For those attending the evening reception and dinner, casual attire is also welcome.
  • Does my registration include my partner?
    Yes, your tuition includes you, and one non-pregnant birth companion.
  • Can my friend/sister/mom/doula attend the retreat as my partner?
    Yes as long as she isn’t also pregnant. The retreat is designed for an expectant mother and her birthing partner who will support her during labor and delivery.
  • Can I attend this retreat on my own, without a birth partner?
    You can, but the retreat is designed for couples, so it’s not recommended, and it doesn’t change the price. There will be hands-on activities, like acupressure, that require a partner.
  • If I refer multiple friends to this event, can I receive a bonus gift card for each one?
    Yes. Simply have each of your referrals provide your name during their registration process.
