Peaceful Birthing HypnoBirthing® Childbirth classes will guide you
through the philosophy and techniques of normal, gentle, peaceful birthing.

You and your birthing companion will learn to use focused deep relaxation, guided imagery and special breathing techniques that can help to bring about a shorter, easier, and more joyful birthing. You will birth your baby in a more comfortable manner, awake, alert, and fully in control.  Relaxation techniques will help you to eliminate fear, tension, and pain.  HypnoBirthing childbirth education consists of a series of five, 2 ½ hour classes that are usually taught over a five-week period.

While HypnoBirthing is a benefit at any stage of pregnancy, it is recommended that classes be taken around the beginning of the second trimester.  However, if you find yourself farther along in your pregnancy, be in touch about classes.......it's never too late to learn!  Even a late introduction is highly beneficial.  Inquire about our Accelerated Format classes if needed. 

During this five-week course, you will learn:

  • How our emotions and thoughts can negatively affect our body and birthing
  • How women's bodies are designed for normal, trouble free birthing  
  • What causes pain during labor and how to alleviate/eliminate it
  • How to prepare your mind and body for your desired birthing
  • How to avoid artificial induction, episiotomy, and surgical birth
  • How to achieve deep levels of relaxation
  • How to prepare your Birth Plan
  • How to interact with your pre-born baby
  • How to tap into your body’s natural pain relievers
  • How to gently breathe your baby down for birthing, avoiding forceful pushing
  • How to maximize bonding before, during, and after birth
  • Birthing Companions also learn to assist Mom with relaxation and becomes an advocate for Mom and Baby

Tuition includes:

  • How to write your birth plan - information on delayed cord clamping, skin-to-skin contact with your baby, do you want an IV, EFM, Vitamin K shot, intervention & induction information, how to know you have the right care provider and birth location and more, more, more!

We find that smaller classes are more comfortable for everyone and therefore group classes are limited to no more than 6 birthing families at a time. Private instruction is also available at a higher tuition rate. Classes are for mom and her birth companion.

Peaceful Birthing HypnoBirthing®  Fertility 

Did you know that stress can reduce your chances for conception?    When we experience stress our bodies produce Cortisol which can inhibit the implantation of a fertilized ovum, delay ovulation and reduce the number and motility of sperm.  Is it possible that daily stress levels are hurting your ability to conceive the child you desire?  Find out how this easy program of relaxation and hypnotherapy can help you release and manage your stress. 


According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, 6.1 million American women and their partners experience difficulties in conceiving a child.  Worldwide it is estimated that 10 to 15% of couples of childbearing age experience infertility.

Many families turn to Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).  Studies have shown that including relaxation and hypnotherapy in their treatment can double their success rate. 


The Journal of the American Medical Women’s Association reported in 1999 that 42% of women were able to conceive within six months of being taught mind/body relaxation techniquesAdditionally, these women were able to affectively decrease their levels of stress, anxiety and depression.

Peaceful Birthing ~ proudly teaching expectant families since 2006!



Meet Your Teacher:





















Janice Rex-Weaver HBCE, HBFE

   Janice chose HypnoBirthing education for both homebirths of her daughters Ashlynn and Alivia.   Ashlynn was a beautiful waterbirth, and Alivia was a planned waterbirth, but came so unnoticed  that the tub was not filled in time and the midwife did not arrive before Alivia did!  These two profound, life-changing experiences led Janice on down a path to support other women and families to know their options for birthing, and understand that birth is joyful and peaceful.  

 Janice earned HypnoBirthing childbirth education certification in 2006 four months after the birth of Alivia and opened Peaceful Birthing that same year in New York - educating expectant parents about 'The Mongan Method' to support their discovery of empowered, comfortable childbirth.  

  Since moving back to Rochester in 2008, she has expanded the business which has now supported over 200 families.  In addition to sustaining Peaceful Birthing, Janice helped bring a HypnoBirthing program with Community Health Education at Crittenton Hospital and also provides classes for Henry Ford Wellness Retreat Center.  Janice has added Doula services and HypnoBrithing Fertility to customer options at Peaceful Birthing.  Janice currently holds the position of President of the Michigan Childbirth Education Connection of SE Michigan.  She is working towards bringing a long time vision of hers to life:  creating a birth and family wellness center in Rochester.
