With Amy’s guidance, I was able to learn to allow my body to do what it is designed to do, rather than fight against it. Specifically, learning to relax my body and mind, as well as letting go of the fear of pain, were the most powerful tools that Amy helped me realize. As a result, I had the birth experience that I desired. I was in control and was able to listen to my body so that my laboring was effective, without unnecessary pain and work. Thank you for helping me achieve my goals and for helping me to learn to embrace childbirth!

The birth was a transformative, empowering experience. I’m so happy that we found the Hypnobabies classes. They tools we learned with you helped me to stay relaxed and focused throughout the birth — including a 2 hour + push phase! I don’t think I would have developed the right mindset if we had taken a different childbirth prep series. I couldn’t be happier with the birthing experience and now having our little guy home with us. Thanks again for being a part of this amazing experience.

Our class really helped my husband be a great coach. I couldn’t have gotten through it without him and he wouldn’t have had the confidence to coach me through it without our class. Thanks for helping me achieve the natural birth that I wanted!
