2014 I finished my training with Hypnobabies® to become a Hypnobabies® Hypno-Doula. 

As a Hypno-Doula I am allowed to:


·        Labor assist (be a doula, *in person* at a birth; not via Skype or other Internet based resources) with moms who have already taken a hypno-childbirth class such as Hypnobabies® or Hypnobirthing, so that they can have an easier hypno-birth.

·        Conduct Hypno-Doula meetings (not classes) with Hypno-students to conduct birthing rehearsals and help them to reinforce their hypnosis techniques.

The rebozo is a traditionell Mexican shawl, long enough to wrap around a woman's body (1.5 -3 meters). During pregnancy and labor it is a multifunctional tool that can be used to assist the mother into various position, to massage her or to relax her. It is like an extension of the arms.

In Gena Kirby's workshop 'Make the Partner do it' I learned various examples how to actively integrate the partner.
