“I have to say that I entirely credit Hypnobirthing with how wonderful the last half of my pregnancy was. I can go back and pinpoint the time I started practicing the breathing and listening to the CDs with when my morning sickness stopped and my aches and pains subsided. Hypnobirthing gave me a reason to concentrate on my pregnancy and baby before he even arrived. It also showed me that I am in charge of my birth experience, and allowed me to feel fully empowered during the birth. Now that my son has arrived, I am proud to say that I have a calm, content baby, which I also believe is because of Hypnobirthing. So thanks to you and Hypnobirthing for making pregnancy and the early days of motherhood such a wonderful experience.” Tiffany Wolf, mom to Edward
