Hypnobabies Instructor

Dear Moms,

 

I know all the emotions you are experiencing right now can be pretty overwhelming. You want a birth experience that is safe and meaningful, grounded and spiritual. If you want to feel like childbirth is about strengthening your bond with your baby then you’ve come to the right place. Hypnobabies will not only educate you on childbirth and set you up for the best birth experience possible; it will also lay a foundation for your family that will last a lifetime. This is an incredibly special class that’s packed full of great information. It will teach you how to have your baby safely, and give you tools to set yourself up for the most positive outcome no matter how you chose to birth your baby. The amazing thing is that it doesn’t stop there . . . it also fosters teamwork, honoring choices and better loving one another. This class truly is a work of genius and I’m honored to teach it because it allows me to have a positive influence in the world during one of the most precious moments in life – when you’re having your baby! How beautiful is that? Come join me in the next Hypnobabies class and let's learn together how to make the world a better place one family at a time.

Hypnobabies Doula

 

I've been attending births since 2004. Each birth is unique onto its own. Each one teaches me something new about the miracle of life, and each one is a true honor and privilege to attend.  I will do my absolute best to help you have the birth you desire. The first step is to take my class so I can get to know you better. In that way, we will have an established relationship and I'll get a glimpse of who you are as a woman. I'll observe you and your partner interact as a couple and all the effort being made to prepare for your baby's birth.  Often times I book in advance due to having a medical practice, therefore, I only attend 1-2 births per month.  If we find that we are a good fit for each other, know that you'll have a seasoned Hypno-doula, a Hypnobabies instructor, and an acupuncturist by your side. I'll honor your wishes.  I'll respect your choices. I'll support you through this life-changing process. 

 

 

May your baby be born in the gentle beauty you deserve,
