Chris and I started seeing you, I liked everything I heard
and read about HypnoBirthing®. However, I had doubts that I
could learn the technique in only four sessions. I enjoyed
the sessions very much not only because I felt I was
learning but also because I felt that you cared. You were
also excellent at helping me develop confidence in my
natural birthing abilities as well as helping me get rid of
my fears. Every visit with you made me feel more confident,
calm and positive about the birthing of our child as well as
myself as a parent and person.
part is that I gave birth before we even had a chance to
take our last session with you. This was my first child and
I expected that my labor would start past my due date. To my
surprise, my labor started two and a half weeks early. I was
in active labor for 14 hours total, 12 of which I spent at
home. Two hours after we arrived in the hospital I had our
son in my hands. Although I had never given birth before, I
felt confident and calm. I listened to the relaxation tapes
and did the breathing you taught me. I had the birthing
experience I had hoped for; natural and peaceful.
A few times
during labor when I lost my focus for a moment, I realized
how powerful what I learned from you was. I realized how
confusing and awful my experience could have been had I not
learned to trust my body and had I not used the relaxation
techniques you taught us.
called to confirm I appreciated that you took the time on
the phone to give me another caring reminder of the
essential things to do to stay relaxed. I really appreciated
that you took genuine care and did not cut anything short,
quite the opposite, you always took an extra step to give us
as much help as possible.
There is no
question in my mind that it was largely because of our
sessions with you I had a wonderful birthing experience. We
will recommend the HypnoBirthing method and your excellent
services to any of our friends who are expecting a child.
With love and
Stremska, Chris Andrews
