HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Education

A natural, instinctive approach to easier, more comfortable birthing

Iowa HypnoBirthing is proud to offer the complete HypnoBirthing® childbirth education program in central Iowa. Classes are taught by Ashley Ladroma, BSN, RN, HBCE.

HypnoBirthing® is a philosophy and technique for achieving a calm, satisfying, and stress-free birth. This empowering program teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in an easier, safer, and more comfortable manner. It recognizes and respects the physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual well-being of mother, birth partner, and infant, independent of context, whether that be at home, hospital, or birth center.

Hypnosis is a safe, natural state of focused attention.


People who have brought themselves into a state of hypnosis feel entirely present, though very relaxed. Throughout the HypnoBirthing sessions, you’ll practice hypnosis to help you remain calm and relaxed while fully aware throughout your birth experience.

You will learn how to call upon your body’s own natural endorphins and thus lessen, or even eliminate, discomfort and the need for medication. When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, Nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with all animal mothers in Nature.

Parents who've prepared for their births with HypnoBirthing® classes are less likely to need interventions during birth, less likely to have a cesarean section, tend to feel more confident in their ability to birth their babies, and  also tend to birth more comfortably.
