I'm adding skills to my doula toolkit!  I attended a Hypnobirthing for Birth Workers course and I have to say I just love it!  I cannot wait to attend to a Hypnomama.  Coming from a yoga and meditation background, Hypnobirthing just clicked for me.  It addresses the physiological and emotional needs of mom and birth partner.  The attention to the breath is key in relaxing the physical body and allowing the baby to make it's way into the world.  I also appreciate the time and dedication that the birthing mother and her partner have spent on learning and practicing the techniques.  They are well informed, relaxed and confident by the time it comes to meet their baby!  If you're curious about Hypnobirthing, I highly recommend clicking here and learning more.
