What brought me to Hypnobabies?
When preparing for our son's birth there was no question that it would be natural. Being a first time mom, I just didn't know how to go about preparing for the actual birth. My husband and I decided to go with fabulous midwives at our local birth center (check out Covenant Birth Center) for our pregnancy and birth - the only question was which childbirth method to use?? You name it, I looked into it as a possibility when preparing for our son's birth. I kept thinking "women have birthed for thousands of years without the use of drugs.... I know I can do this..." When I found Hypnobabies I knew it was the ONLY way for us to go.
I loved the positive message of Hypnobabies and knew their philosophy meshed with my own. Using my mind to create the same medical hypno-anesthesia that people utilize to undergo surgery without drugs? Yes, please! Anticipating our upcoming birth with excitement and positivity instead of fear and "coping strategies"? Yes, please! Planning for an easier, more comfortable birth? Yes, please! Enjoying relaxing hypnosis sessions throughout the rest of my pregnancy? Yes, please! Yes, please! Yes, please!!!
We had an amazing birth and got the greatest gift in the world with our son. I loved the Hypnobabies program so much that the teacher in me decided I had no choice but to become an instructor! I'm truly thrilled to bring Hypnobabies classes to Columbia. This program is such a gift to mothers, fathers and babies! Seriously, it's amazing. I'm so happy to be able to help expectant parents prepare for,and anticipate the birth of their child with excitement, joy and love!
