HypnoBirthing childbirth education program can help you achieve a safer and gentler childbirth by blending trust in the female body with the documented effectiveness of self-hypnosis (deep relaxation), guided imagery, visualization, special breathing and tension-releasing techniques.

The HypnoBirthing childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free birthing. Mothers-to-be will learn how to call upon their birthing body’s own natural relaxant (endorphins) to lessen or eliminate birthing discomfort, labor pain and the need for medication. When a pregnant woman is properly prepared for childbirth and her mind and body are in harmony, nature can be freed to function during labor and birthing in the same manner that it does with all other creatures.

HypnoBirthing childbirth classes teach expecting mothers to release all prior programming about birth and how to trust the birthing body and work with it, as well as how to eliminate harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles during labor and birth. HypnoBirthing teaches the art of using natural birthing instincts, and empowers women so they can create the birth they want.

HypnoBirthing mothers experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm and relaxation, without fear and tension that causes pain. Their body’s natural relaxant replaces the stress, hormones that cause labor pain. HypnoBirthing moms are aware of their laboring and birthing body and choose to surrender to the childbirth process. They are aware, in control, and profoundly relaxed.

In addition to learning self-hypnosis techniques to help achieve a more natural birthing, by taking HypnoBirthing program you will also learn:

  • Breathing techniques for labor and birth
  • Exercise techniques to prepare the body to give birth
  • Nutrition; birth planning
  • How to get a good start with breastfeeding
  • Postpartum and more

RSIA Tambak serves hypnobirthing training every day:
Monday to Friday 10:00 to 14:00
Saturday at 10:00 to 18:00

RSIA Tambak also serves the facilitation of labor with hypnobirthing.

Lactation Services

The Lactation Department within RSIA Tambak is a daily resource for breastfeeding mothers and babies within the hospital. All of the Lactation Consultants are nurses who are also certified by the national Board of Certified Lactation Consultants.

Although breastfeeding is natural, learning does not come easily for all new moms, and sometimes even experienced moms may struggle with a new issue. If you’re concerned about the amount of milk you’re producing, the baby’s weight or are having issues pumping, RSIA Tambak offers personal consultations with you and your baby. Some problems may be addressed over the phone, but other issues need a personal visit. RSIA Tambak invites you and your baby to come in to address your concerns with one of the certified lactation consultants. They will offer you individualized guidance, tips, and tools to make breastfeeding more comfortable for you and your baby.

Based on the nature of the consultation, there is a scale available to check a pre-feed and post-feed weight to make sure your baby is receiving an adequate supply of milk. When bringing your infant to the consultation, it would be best to have the consult at a time when the baby will be interested in feeding, but not overly hungry.

When purchasing a breast pump, please consider your needs for use. If you are going to be a full-time working mother, you will succeed best with a double electric pump. If you will be an at home mother with only an occasional need to pump, a single electric pump or even a manual pump may be adequate. There are many online resources that will provide you with a comparison of brands and uses.

2.5-hour class is for both moms and dads and focuses on the basics of breastfeeding your newborn. Preparation and education will help you feel more confident as you start this journey. The consultants will also discuss pumps, when to start pumping, milk storage, and returning to work. Classes are taught by Certified Lactation Consultants. Plan to attend this class prior to your delivery so you will feel more confident breastfeeding your baby right from the start.

Children Growth and Development Department

Understanding your child's changing and emerging growth and development is an important part of parenting. As infants and children progress through a series of growth stages, they may encounter physical and emotional challenges, and some relatively common problems during these years.

Growth and development includes not only the physical changes that will occur from infancy to adolescence, but also some of the changes in emotions, personality, behavior, thinking, and speech that children develop as they begin to understand and interact with the world around them. 

Besides, the Children Growth and Development Department at RSIA Tambak evaluates, diagnoses and treats children with disorders of growth and puberty.

When you visit the Center, your child will be cared for by the multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurse clinicians, family therapists and nutritionists, who are nationally recognized experts in the area of growth.

The staffs are actively involved in the latest treatment approaches for children with growth disorders, including new research approaches, and they plan your child's treatment with the benefit of this knowledge.
