I first took this class in 2011 as a hypnotist to widen my hypnosis knowledge. I have taken it again as a refresher course as people are now more open to having hypnosis for comfortable labor and childbirth and I see a growing demand for this. I feel this class explains and shows comfortable labor and childbirth so clearly. It covers all the stages of labor and even includes the partner to guide the mother through the birth process. Lisa is a great teacher and I enjoy all her classes as she explains everything clearly and simply. Thank you.

It was lovely. I used a hypnobirthing course 6+ years ago in preparation of the birth of my daughter. When she was 2, I decided to study hypnotherapy. Now, it is a beautiful circle that I have come to be certified in hypnobirthing as well. I loved the course, the simplicity, the clarity of the 5 sessions. I'm excited to be able to offer this amazing experience to my clients. Thank you.

Loved learning about how to use hypnosis in childbirth. It was interesting to watch the clients get pinched out of hypnosis and then in hypnosis and immediately see how that worked.

I was thinking about Hypno Childbirth for a while. I live in a very family oriented suburb, lots of children and it's the Jewish vacation go to location of NY, nearly all of Brooklyn comes here for the entire summer every year for a good 100 years I've been told. I happen to have the luxury of working with many of the woman who are all either nursing or expecting unless they passed the child birthing years and if so they have many children to recommend to me! After watching these classes I'm positive this will be my #1 specialty. Thank you so much Lisa for all you share with us. I only hope I will be half the Hypnotherapist you are, wink!

I loved this course and my first client for this enjoys it as well. I would like to have learned more about a better breathing technique (instead of violently pushing, rather relaxing to loosen the muscles etc.).

Very interesting indeed. So much information so I need to re-watch the video and review the workbook. It would have been nice if there were 5 session videos with the same client to see how it flows from session to session. What a great way to use hypnosis!
