Does it feel like your upcoming birth and transition into parenthood is rushing toward you?

If so, you’re not alone. Fear and worry are common feelings when you have so much to learn and not enough time.

That’s why I’ve taken my 30+ years as a Doula and Birthing Coach and created the most complete, affordable and stress-free preparation courses for you.

Mindful Hypnobirth

Mindful Hypnobirth is a 1- or 2-day course for pregnant couples that are focused on creating a positive birthing process.

Many couples, especially those pregnant with their first baby, have a sense of anxiety, unpreparedness, and “flying blind” when it comes to getting ready for birth. Hospital maternity courses are very generic in nature, and many of your important questions can go unanswered.

Knowing exactly how to prepare yourself and being ready for whatever happens will allow you to focus on bringing your baby into this world safely and creating a deep connection quickly.

Mindful Hypnobirth will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate the birth of your newborn with calm, confidence, and mindfulness.

Transition into Parenthood

Transition Into Parenthood is a 1- or 2-day course for pregnant couples wanting to develop practical skills and knowledge to begin their parenting journey with confidence.

No two pregnancies, births or babies are ever the same...meaning there are lots of “what ifs” and moments where you will need to make decisions. Your baby is relying on you to be prepared.

Knowing the right decision to make can be very daunting, especially if this is your first time becoming a parent!

Rest assured. Many couples have been in your shoes before and learned the skills needed to confidently navigate the transition into parenting.

Transition Into Parenthood will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to calmly navigate the birth of your newborn and approach the first 12 weeks of parenting with confidence.
