Hypnobabies® - Natural Childbirth at its best!

Hypnobabies Instructor Julie Byers shares this Doula's experience with us!

"Kristin Abboud took my Hypno-Doula training in January 2011. I asked her to blog her first Hypnobabies birth experience. Her clients were first time parents who took my class and gave birth at Oconee Memorial."

She listened to scripts through ear phones and barely made a peep. Once in a while she would say “peace” or make a little moan. It was during scripts that the most work seemed to be getting done. Vaginal exams were refused. I wanted to DO something. Shouldn’t we be walking, swaying, massaging, praising, encouraging, timing? Shouldn’t she be breathing harder, moaning, groaning, snapping, needing?"

"Time, time was what was needed. There were hints and clues here and there that things were progressing. I couldn’t tell when a pressure wave began or subsided so timing was no use. When she was on the monitor we caught a glimpse of her waves. They would rise half way and hold on for 2 minutes or longer. I watched her when they would start, peak and end. Her hypnosis was so well practiced and trusted, she hardly flinched at the pressure."
