I met F & A at the end of my first year of teaching. I enjoyed them so much because of their wonderful, loving, positive energy. They were so sweet on each other. After classes were complete and baby was born this mama said to let my students know to practice as much as possible and prepare materials they may want to use for labor and birth ahead of time. F & A stayed calm as they adjusted to the changes in their original birth plan. I am proud of them for staying calm and making the best choices possible for them and their baby. Baby S is so very lucky to have such noteworthy parents! Congrats guys! You are a beautiful family.
C & J were a delight to work with! Both silly yet serious people. I know Baby P will grow strong and confident in this life because that is the nature of her parents. Congratulations C & J! You did good and Baby P is just perfect.
Baby E, a sweet, happy, alert baby was brought into this world by two wonderful parents. Both, equally invested in HypnoBirthing and how one could support the other, and wanting to make the best choices they could for their baby. This mama labored drug free through her induced labor. She spent a great deal of time preparing for labor by listening to the relaxation tracks and practicing the breathing techniques. While laboring, she stayed on top of her breathing and controlled her thoughts, and as a result did not need any pain medicine. As you can see from the picture, this mama was so pleased to meet her little one. Great job, L! I am so proud of you and A!
This couple was full of excited, positive, joyful energy that brought a smile to my face every time I saw them. They came with open hearts and were so excited to learn about HypnoBirthing :) This mama had a start and stop labor for a few days and a virus to boot prior to her baby's birth. Dad was extremely supportive, helping mom labor at home until it was finally time to make the trip to the hospital. Dad physically carried his wife to the car. This baby's birth was beautiful and I am so proud of this couple for their ability to remain calm during the eventful week leading to their baby girl's birth. I got the opportunity to meet and hold Baby E. A sweet and happy child! Way to go C & J!!
Baby L was born just in time to celebrate Halloween with his parents. He was welcomed early with open arms and a very open birth plan. Mom did amazing laboring without drugs while dad was really awesome supporting mom the whole time through. Congratulations J & T! So, so happy for you all.
Welcome to the world Baby A! Baby girl was born into our world at home, with no drugs, a fantastic midwife, and had no tearing. Mom enjoyed relaxing in her birth tub and dad was amazing by helping his wife throughout her entire labor. Both parents walked away from this birth feeling so good! Congratulations E and A! So, very happy for all of you.
This very sweet couple welcomed their little girl into their arms a few weeks early with love and surprise. Congratulations D & C!!
Baby C was born into a wonderful family with two big sisters already in tow. His mom and dad prepared a home birth for him, a third home birth for this unique couple. Mama A focused on what she wanted in this birth, releasing fears and choosing a birth team that was in line with what she wanted for her family and her son. She posted visuals along her walls and dreamed of the day the leaves would fall from the trees and she would get to meet her baby. Baby C was born into this world during our gorgeous season of Fall. This remarkable mom birthed an 11 lb baby gently with dad supporting along the way. You both worked so hard for baby C and I am so very proud of you. Mama A you deserve all things good. You are a blessing to your children, your husband, and to the world. Way to go! Thank you for letting me get to know all of you. Shared, are some magical photos by Emily Weiss Photography.
Welcome to the world, baby S! You ARE noteworthy. Your parents worked hard to bring you into this world calmly and safely. I wish you all a life together in truth and light 💜.
HypnoBirthing helped bring this little girl into the world. Here is what her mom and dad had to say:
"Lisa's HypnoBirthing class helped me to relax and enjoy the birth of our second baby. Letting go of fears from my first birth experience was huge. Lisa had my husband and I talk through our fears and we did an empowering fear release. Additionally, many of the HypnoBirthing scripts that she read to us enabled us to have a positive and relaxed pregnancy and birth.
I would highly recommend HypnoBirthing for any mom to be. I had a c-section due to medical issues, but felt calm and at ease. I played the Rainbow Relaxation in the operation room and I didn't feel any pain like I did with my first c-section. I remember seeing our baby and tearing up at how beautiful she was. The love, peace and calm that I felt in that moment was so empowering. I felt whole in my heart!
My recovery was much better afterwards too. I healed much faster and even started walking that very same night after the c-section. I wouldn't change a thing and I thank you dear Lisa for imparting your knowledge of HypnoBirthing to us. There is no greater gift than the gift of a joyous birth and you gave us that and much more." - A & J
This little guy was the first of my HypnoBirthing couples to join us earthside, and I got to hold him! Mama C brought with her a calm confidence and ease of going with the flow to our HypnoBirthing classes and to her baby's birth. Her ability to stay in the moment was admirable. Dad supported mom endlessly in classes and surrounded her and their son during labor with love and protection. CONGRATULATIONS C and P! I am so very proud of you both! You are all most definitely noteworthy ❤️.
I just taught my first HypnoBirthing® class series to a wonderful couple and I felt really good doing it! I felt as though I was doing something first-rate for the universe. Although, it has been a couple of years since my baby's HypnoBirth, I am quickly reminded why I wanted to teach this class and how very important all the material is. Not only is this class helpful at preparing moms and dads for a gentle birthing, but it teaches tools, techniques, and ways to be a calm, gentle, confident parent and person too.
A dad in my HypnoBirthing class described what we were learning as "HypnoLiving." I am attached to this term now. HypnoLiving is what I call life AFTER HypnoBirthing. To me, it is a way of life. It is being mindful and present as I move throughout my day. Finding time to reflect on the things that are working and making the necessary changes to those things that are not. Relaxing my mind and body through guided imagery, deep breathing, progressive relaxation, exercise and gentle stretching. Getting quality sleep regularly, feeding my body with healthy and nutritious foods, drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated, and avoiding the stressors that bring tension to my body. HypnoLiving means I surround myself with positive, open and kind people and release the negative energy that I often take on from others. I talk in a calm and soft voice to myself, my children, and to anyone I encounter, and I affirm myself regularly that all I do and all I am is enough.
I respect HypnoBirthing® for allowing my baby's birth to be gentle and freeing, but also for giving me some tools to use once she was here. Being a parent is amazing and so rewarding, but challenging and exhausting too. It reveals your weaknesses and certainly grows you as a person if you are able to embrace the lessons. HypnoBirthing focuses a great deal on letting go of fears. Particularly fears of childbirth and parenting and the breathing techniques taught create calm. This is HypnoBirthing®. It is good, it is positive and it is empowering.
I teach Tuesday evening classes from my home in Springfield.
