My primary goal is to help women enter their birthing time feeling confident and healthy, with their minds and bodies ready, and their babies in good position. The self-hypnosis and self-care skills learned during the Hypnobabies course are great for this purpose! I encourage women desiring additional help with baby positioning and cervical preparation to see one or more local professionals for pre-birth work (chiropractic, acupressure, physio, etc), and I use a variety of techniques to assist with baby positioning during birth (acupressure, body positions, etc). People tell me that I have a calm presence, and this is part of what I offer to parents. The respectful relationships I aspire to develop with local midwives and medical staff also enhance the positive environment in the birthing room, and help 'ease the way' for parents. I share a lot of information with parents about baby behaviour, baby calming techniques, and baby sleep patterns, and parents have told me that this information is really helpful. Oh! I also have experience with water births.
It is such a pleasure to be able to offer Hypnobabies classes in this area. The self-hypnosis scripts are brilliant, and the techniques help women to experience pregnancy and childbirth in a state of peace, comfort and joy. Women and their partners also gain skills they can apply throughout the rest of their lives. What a positive and beneficial approach! I recently moved to Corvallis, Oregon, and intend to offer group classes in my home or at a local birth clinic. For parents who can't make a group class, I'm happy to teach the course privately. I also enjoy my role as a certified Hypno-Doula. It is wonderful to support mothers during hypno-births, to witness their joy and satisfaction, and to see what a difference the course has made for them!
