Hi! I am a mother, midwife, nurse, and lactation consultant (IBCLC) with 11 years Neonatal ICU experience. I used the HypnoBirthing® program to give birth to my daughter at home in 2013
I teach small group (North Beach) and private HypnoBirthing® classes. I love teaching parents to be about every related to pregnancy, birth, and beyond. I especially love the HypnoBirthing® program because it is evidence based and relevant
Group classes are limited to 3 couples, which means you will get individual attention. Classes are held in a central and comfortable location
Private classes are held in the comfort of your home.
I can also do ‘mini-groups’ of friends or family for the regular group price
The price of the classes includes the 5 sessions, the book, and CD, as well as a ZenBand, Affirmation Cards, and goodie bag
I also provide private lactation consultant appointments, pre or post birth. A 2hr breastfeeding preparation class is also available – although the last session of the HypnoBirthing® course covers most of this information. Anyone who attends my HypnoBirthing® classes will only pay the ‘followup’ price if post birth consultations are needed
I am also a stockist for various breastfeeding and expressing products, including Spectra® breast pumps. HypnoBirthing clients will receive a 10% discount on a breast pump
