What is HypnoBirthing®?
HypnoBirthing® is a beautiful, calm, gentle, safe way to journey through your pregnancy, labor and birth. You will discover a stress-free method of birthing that is devoted to help you learn, through self-hypnosis and special breathing exercises, the art of “letting go” and opening yourself to the joy of experiencing birth calmly and serenely. You will find yourself forming an even deeper connection with your baby, your pregnancy, labor and birth. See www.HypnoBirthing.com for more details.
Why would you want to take a private class?
I teach private classes which allows you my undivided attention. It gives you the time to ask as many questions as you like or to address any personal concerns of yours in a private setting. It is also great for those that may not be able to attend a class at a specific time and day each week. Times can be arranged to suit your needs. It gives me great pleasure to teach these private classes. By the time we are done I know that you “get it”. If you should wish and my schedule allows, I may be able to attend your birth as your Doula/HypnoBirthing® Practitioner . I have attended many beautiful HypnoBirths.
Classes and material consist of:
- Your own copy of the 302-page HypnoBirthing® Text, HypnoBirthing®– The Mongan Method
- 5 information-packed 2.5 hour classes (special consideration given to out of town students), helping you to understand why labor doesn’t have to hurt.
- 5 professionally written scripts for your home practice
- 2 CDs for your relaxation, stress reduction, and bonding (Including the program cornerstone disk, Rainbow Relaxation)

My husband and I went to see Cheryl because we were interested in having a doula present at our baby’s birth and also curious about HypnoBirthing®. After meeting Cheryl we immediately signed on for HypnoBirthing® and asked her to be our doula. She seemed very friendly, positive and professional. I had heard of HypnoBirthing® from some friends of mine, but didn’t really know much about it. We were looking for a more natural way to give birth, without a bunch of drugs and medical interventions. Cheryl was very thorough and professional about explaining everything to us. We learned tools like breathing, relaxation techniques, positive affirmations, releasing fear, birth plans, nutrition and a thorough understanding of the childbirth process. Throughout Cheryl’s HypnoBirthing® classes we became more and more confident and relaxed about the upcoming birth of our daughter. Even though I had a son almost 9 years ago and went to a child preparation class, Cheryl’s HypnoBirthing® provided me with a much better understanding of the entire birthing process. And, with this understanding I saw that women have been having babies for thousands of years and our bodies are designed to do it without all of the medical interventions that are so readily used today in North America. Cheryl made me realize that most of the birthing experiences that I had heard or seen (through family, friend, media, etc.) were portrayed as painful and difficult and that led me to fear my upcoming daughter’s birth. So, with her guidance and education I feel much calmer and relaxed about the whole experience. Thank you, Cheryl!

Along with having Cheryl as our Doula, she was also our HypnoBirthing® Instructor/Coach. We worked with Cheryl on a weekly basis leading up to the big day learning and practicing all of the beneficial focus and relaxation tools and techniques that HypnoBirthing® offers. Not only were these tools useful during the actual delivery, they were also extremely helpful in guiding my Husband and I in relaxation throughout the entire pregnancy. When people comment on how laid back I was throughout the entire pregnancy and even afterwords, I feel that the biggest reason for this is the HypnoBirthing® method. I have often found myself using these same tools over the past six months of our sons’ life.
I would highly recommend working with a doula for any pregnancy (first, second or even fifth pregnancy). I would also recommend considering HypnoBirthing®. And if you are lucky enough to have Cheryl on your team as your Doula/Coach/Instructor and friend, you will experience the miracle of life in the most supportive, positive and enjoyable way possible. She is one in a million!
