For more than 20 years, I’ve had the privilege of helping expectant mothers bring their babies into the world in a stress-free, often pain-free manner.
I believe that when babies enter the world in a calm, caring and loving atmosphere, we’re changing the way the world will work.
The HypnoBirthing® method sets the stage for your baby’s life.
While many expectant parents focus on making sure they have the material things ready (crib, clothes…), I believe it’s much more important that you are emotionally and physically prepared for welcoming your baby into the world and into your life.
About my classes:
As couples move through the HypnoBirthing® classes, I love watching them transition from being anxious, fearful and not knowing what to expect during childbirth, to feeling completely at ease because they understand the natural birth process and have full confidence in the innate wisdom of a woman’s body and their baby’s instincts.
During the prenatal classes, we work on releasing all fears and pre-conceived ideas that childbirth is meant to be painful.
The more knowledgeable you are about how your body works, the more confident and relaxed you’ll be.
I’ll teach you multiple ways to achieve and maintain the optimal state for your baby’s journey through the birth canal, answering any questions and concerns you have as we move through the sessions.
When labour begins, you and your birth partner will be well prepared. You’ll know exactly what to do, including how to rapidly reach a relaxed state because you’ve practiced how to do it.
The HypnoBirthing® method teaches you how to work with your body to allow your baby to work his/her magic at their own pace.
Your body and baby have been working in unison for 9 months. Birth is simply the final stage of this miraculous process.
The classes also help you and your partner create a bond with your baby even prior to birth while also helping you create a stronger family dynamic – one built on trust, understanding and caring, with practical tools you can use over and over whenever stressful events occur.
I would be honoured to help you have a wonderful birth experience and set the stage for your baby’s loving welcome into your growing family. Class schedules can be found here .
