Color of Calm Natural Birth Services
 

Welcome

Welcome to the Color of Calm! You’re probably here because you’re looking for natural birthing options, and for that I commend you. Parenting and making wise choices for your baby begins even before birth!

Having a baby is one of the most exciting and life changing events in life. Welcoming a new little person into this world and into your family is an experience like no other. As women, our bodies know how to birth. Our babies know how to be born. Our bodies and our babies will work together in perfect harmony if we just relax and let nature do what it does best! Birth is not something to be afraid of – it should be peacefully and joyfully prepared for.

Thank you for visiting my site – please continue to browse the resources and services I provide and definitely feel free to call me. I’m always happy to chat with an expecting mother!

HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method

You have many choices and decisions to make for your birthing experience – your care provider, the environment in which you will bring your baby into the world, and the childbirth education classes you will choose to prepare for the birth of your baby.

HypnoBirthing® is a tried and proven method that guides and prepares a woman to birth in a peaceful and beautiful manner. HypnoBirthing courses are built around an educational process that includes special breathing, relaxation, visualization, meditative practice, and attention to nutrition and body toning. It considers the psychological and physical well-being of the mother, her birth partner, and their newborn, fostering mutual respect for everyone involved. HypnoBirthing is very effective in both traditional health-care centers or alternative birth settings.

Through self-hypnosis you will be able to fully relax and trust your body to do what it naturally knows how to do. You will learn to trust birth and let go of any fears or limiting thoughts. In the absence of fear you allow your birthing muscles and your baby to work together in harmony, just as they were designed to do.

Self-hypnosis isn’t anything like the goofy hypnotist stage shows you may have seen. Self-hypnosis is simply a method of bypassing your critical mind and accessing your subconscious through a deeper level of relaxation. It allows you to explore and release any limiting beliefs and fears and replace them with positive ones. You will be completely aware and in control the entire time.

With HypnoBirthing you will have the advantage and confidence of the Mongan Method reputation for top-quality birthing preparation. Find out more about the HypnoBirthing philosophy.

About Me

My goal is to help you prepare for the birthing you envision

Alanna Peters

mmy name is Alanna Peters and I am the mother of two beautiful little girls. I am a certified HypnoBirthing® childbirth educator and a successful HypnoBirthing mama! I had such a beautiful experience with my birth that it has become my goal to help other families have the natural births they envision as well.

I first realized that I had an interest in birth way back in junior college when I saw a birth video for the first time. It brought up a very strong emotional response in me and I strongly felt that birth was something I COULD do, that my body knew HOW to do (even though I was in no way ready to be pregnant yet at that time!). About 7 years later, when I did become pregnant, those strong emotions returned and I began to do immense amounts of research on birth and how I could accomplish it in a peaceful, unmedicated way. Still to this day, every time I see a birth it I get all choked up and teary-eyed. That moment of birth is such an amazing, awe-inspiring thing.

With my first pregnancy I tried a few different natural birth techniques and labored very peacefully for about 30 hours. The time eventually got to be too much for me and I gave in and got an epidural. I still had a wonderful birth experience but I was determined to do it completely naturally the second time around! I had several friends who had successful HypnoBirths so I decided to give it a try for myself. I ended up having the most amazing, relaxing, easy birth I could ever imagine. I was so relaxed that I didn’t even realize I was truly in labor until a few minutes before my baby was born peacefully at home! It was such an incredible experience that I felt compelled to share these HypnoBirthing techniques with others. A natural, healthy pregnancy and birth are things that are extremely important to me and it is my desire to help others achieve them as well.
