What parents are saying:
Another girl! Alexandra was born on January 21st. Labor was a lot faster and smoother this time around - I was almost 7 cm dialated before I got to the hospital.
I credit hypnobirthing with keeping me at home and relaxed for so long.

"I don't know how I would have managed without it. Based on my experience, it was much more effective for pain management than 'traditional' methods such as walking, warm showers, etc. I wanted a vaginal delivery with no epidural and no episiotomy and that's what I got. Without HypnoBirthing, I would have given up and asked for an epidural. Inevitably I would have had an episiotomy or even a c-section."

I saw you for several sessions back in March and April because my baby was in a breech position - I was referred by a friend. I just wanted to let you know that everything went exceedingly well with the c-section. I used the techniques we worked on and I had your cds on my ipod which I listened to at different points. The work we did helped me to stay focused and calm and as a result I had a wonderful birth experience (even though it was far from the natural childbirth I had planned on).
Our perfect baby girl was born in April. We are thrilled with her. Thank you again for all your support. I will definitely be recommending you to friends.
I hope you are well
and thank you for everything. I am recommending hypnobirthing to everyone
I know who is pregnant. It really made a difference for me. Here are some
pictures of the baby and Joe says hello.
HypnoBirthing was extremely helpful and I did not have pain associated with the contractions. The labor was easy and took about 7 hours. I was offered Demerol, but I declined, HypnoBirthing gave me the kind of birthing experience I wanted. My birthing experience was relaxed & calm-it also assuaged any fears I had about giving birth. Also there was no real pain involved.
So good to hear from you. We did have the c-section. We waited till his due date to give him a chance to come on his own. I would have gone for 2 weeks past the due date but the reality was that he was growing more than 1/2 a pound a week which would have made him 11 pds. The truth is that we were a wreck over the AFP drama and I did not want to be induced to have to end up with an emergency c-section. My girlfriend had one weeks before me and it was a nightmare. I felt the c-section was a really good educated decision.
honest truth is the c-section was an incredible experience. I used the
hypno-birthing throughout. The anesthesiologist told me he could not believe
the way I went through the surgery. My attitude was extremely joyous and
positive. My blood pressure, pulse were stable the entire time. I had
no vomiting and very, very slight nausea which he adjusted. Strangely,
I felt confident and in control of myself throughout. Will and I felt
incredible connection with eachother, and Liam throughout. Eventhough,
I had moments of sadness that I didn't have the natural birth I had worked
so hard for, I would not change Liams birth day for anything. Like I said
medically I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but with Dr. Marks. She
did an incredible job on the surgery. She was meticulous.
"I couldn't believe what I had gone through, not one but two long and excruciating labors? I was petrified. Then I found HypnoBirthing. This birth took four and a half-hours. I was relaxed and comfortable all the way. It was wonderful."
