I love working with pregnant women and couples to empower them to create a beautiful, harmonious and peaceful birth. I help you envision and express the ideal birth situation, and through hypnotherapy trances, reaching the subconscious, we present that vision to be embraced and accepted by the entire body and psyche. I help you release fears related to beliefs about birth or about prior negative birth experiences, and draw out your strong and powerful aspects through Voice Dialogue, visualization or Alchemical Hypnotherapy processes. Having worked deeply with the “Birthing From Within” model for the home births of both of my own children, I help women and couples to create their ideal birth, draw upon their strong and resourceful aspects to deal with surprises, and I teach coping strategies for managing pain, either transcending or moving into and through the pain of labor, going on a visualization journey to your safe place or beautiful garden, and/or drawing on your guides and power animal aspects to give you support, power, endurance and passionate resolve for your beautiful child’s entry into the world.
