Ascension in Northeast Wisconsin offers hypnobirthing to help promote a natural and less-stressful birthing experience.

Hypnobirthing for a more relaxing birth experience

At Ascension NE Wisconsin - Mercy Campus, we offer many types of personalized birth plans. Hypnobirthing is one aspect of a natural, medication-free birth. Applying relaxation to your daily routine during pregnancy is a positive, healthy addition to your prenatal care. During labor, you have the option to include hypnobirthing techniques. This may lead to a more gentle birth with less stress on you and your baby.
