Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis
I'm excited to provide doula services exclusively for my Hypnobabies students. As a highly experienced Hypnobabies Instructor since 2017, I have the knowledge and skills to support my students during their birthing time and help them use all the hypno-tools and cues we learn during my Hypnobabies classes.
As a birth doula, I accompany women in their birthing time to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. I support women planning hospital, birth center, and home births. I am a registered Hypno-Doula through Hypnobabies® and a Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor. I have had the pleasure of teaching for six years, as well as using Hypnobabies® for the birth of my own five children. I draw on my professional training as a doula and childbirth educator, knowledge, and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, communication with the staff to make sure you have the information you need to make informed decisions as they arise during your birthing time. I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for birthing time progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning, hypnosis deepening, and other techniques for comfort.
As a Hypno-doula, I am specifically trained to offer support during the birth by using only Hypnobabies language and techniques at all times. I can also be a liaison for the family with hospital staff, explaining my clients need darkness, solitude and quiet, and help keep distraction to a minimum. I can use hypnotic Deepening techniques with the Hypno-mom, for use in Transformation (transition) stage, as well as help with Fear Clearing and hypno-cues during your Birthing Time. When a birthing time slows or is stalled, I can assist with the "Strengthen My Birthing Time" track to help birthing waves become stronger and/or more consistent. My calm presence and Hypnobabies knowledge make me an ideal doula for all of my Hypnobabies students.
I currently only accept 1-2 Hypno-Doula clients a month, so booking early is advised.
Doula packages start at $1200. Please contact me today for a free consultation to see if we are a good fit. I'd love to chat with you!
First time mom, Corielle says:
"Lindsay is an amazing doula who empowered us to make the best decisions for ourselves and our baby at every stage of pregnancy and our birthing time! We worked with her as both our doula and our Hypnobabies instructor, and I'm so glad that we had the opportunity to build a relationship and common foundation with her this way. I would highly recommend that any other parents work with her in both
capacities for maximum benefit. She provided knowledge, coaching and support in countless ways, and on several occasions, she gave crucial guidance to help us realize our ideal vision for pregnancy and a beautiful, peaceful birth. For example, when we first started working with Lindsay, we were unhappy with our current OB practice but hadn't considered making a change. She took time to understand our values and goals and then provided information and counsel that empowered us to switch to a wonderful midwife care team that we absolutely loved and trusted. Then, at 42 weeks, we made the decision to move forward with an induction for the health and safety of me and our baby. Lindsay's knowledge and guidance in those crucial hours were the key to a joyful and comfortable birth. Hospital protocol involved moving very quickly through a series of induction protocols, and Lindsay gave us information and guidance that helped us make the right decision to take things more slowly, allowing my body to respond appropriately at each step. Thank goodness we did! With just a few extra hours of patience after the first induction technique, my body entered natural labor without further interventions, and we delivered a healthy baby girl within 8-hours. We are immeasurably grateful that Lindsay was with us at every step of this journey, and we can't recommend her highly enough!"
