“Through breathing, visualization, and self-hypnosis, HypnoBirthing guides you in how to birth instinctively and without fear.”


HypnoBirthing® is a childbirth technique and philosophy that focuses on fear release and deep relaxation to help you achieve a gentle and relaxed birth. Beyond being an evidenced-based childbirth education class, HypnoBirthing® focuses on the relationship between mind and body, exploring how our thoughts shape our experiences, and consequently our births. Through breathing, visualization, and self-hypnosis, HypnoBirthing® guides you in how to birth instinctively and without fear. I love sharing knowledge, and I bring several years of experience working as an Adjunct Lecturer at CUNY and NYU to my HypnoBirthing® classes. Taught over a series of 5 two and a half hour sessions, your investment includes the HypnoBirthing textbook, a workbook, meditations, my signature Earthling Soak herbal blend for your baby’s first bath, and other goodies.
