Services in a nutshell

Our HypnoBirthing childbirth education class gives you the tools to have a confident, informed, and most importantly calm birth by utilizing evidence based techniques that combine holistic pain management strategies and the natural powers that our mind has over our body. Using a combination of guided visualization techniques, breathwork and self-hypnosis, you will learn how to put your trust back into your body so that you can birth without fear, lessen the chance of interventions, and lower perceived pain during the birthing process. This class is wonderful for those who have the goal of achieving an unmedicated birth, but can be extremely useful for all birthing scenarios that share the goal of eliminating fears and anxieties around birth.

Our team


Sarah Baker is a mom of two little boys (one being a hypnobirthing baby), Hypnobirthing Childbirth Educator, Internationally Accredited Meditation Teacher, Postpartum Doula and Holistic Health Specialist. Similar to you, Sarah wanted to feel prepared, confident and calm during her labor, no matter what twist or turn took place. Finding a childbirth education class that provided not only in-depth knowledge on everything that goes down during labor, but proven methods that help you feel calm, confident and empowered (that did not consist of just pain management interventions that hospitals offer), was something that Sarah had a hard time finding in the Chicagoland area.

Sarah started Asana Mama to provide parents in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs an incredibly engaged, premier Hypnobirthing Childbirth Education class (currently being held completely remotely).

Sarah brings almost a decade of practicing as a Holistic Health and meditation specialist with a heavy emphasis on mind + body balance, and has pivoted her practice to specialize in maternal wellness when she became pregnant with her first son in 2017.
