When I first took my HypnoBirthing class I enjoyed it but I wasn’t convinced. Average birth is only 5 hours long- isn’t that nice. No need to push, the body will do it all on its own, just “breath your baby down and you will see your baby in 20 minutes.” Isn’t that sweet?!? Then it happened for me with twins and I became that mom that stopped every pregnant woman on the street raving about HypnoBirthing. I did that for a few years and then finally became certified to teach and doubt started creeping in again, what if I was just a fluke- maybe I had such and easy birth because the boys were premmies. What if I am selling snake oil? Then I continued to teach, then I continue to attend births and my practice became more confident. I began to believe in birth! I began to believe completely in the strength of a woman and her beautiful love for her child that she has nurtured and cared for, for so many months. I began having birth after birth that were happening exactly as I knew they would happen. Each birth reminded me of why I raved about the power of HypnBirthing- because HypnoBirthing is only a key that unlocks a woman’s amazing potential to be exactly who she always dreamed she could be and was too scared to admit it. That is why women rave about HypnoBirthing because it allowed them to fall in love with themselves.
