My husband and I went to Treese Morford-DeBoer for our HypnoBirthing classes. We used it during my pregnancy with our first (and only) child, Elizabeth. The classes were very informational and helped relieve a lot of worry that was normally associated with labor and delivery. We did one-on-one classes and found it very easy to communicate and relax during class. Labor and delivery was very quick and what I
would consider easy compared to what we went in expecting. The classes helped keep me calm and relaxed during contractions and during the delivery of our daughter. We were able to keep with our plan to have a natural delivery and had a beautiful healthy8lb 13oz baby girl. I was induced at about 9:00 am and delivered around 9:30 pm. Numerous times the nurses had to come in and adjust our Pitocin drip because my contractions were stronger than they should be but due to our classes and my ability to keep calm and relaxed I didn’t notice any contractions until about 7:00pm when it was time to deliver baby. The class expectations were very true to what I experienced during my labor and delivery. If we have any more children hypnobirthing will be our go to class again.

My husband and I used HypnoBirthing for our third child Tanner. We couldn’t have been happier with our experience. Our son came into this world the way we wanted him to, and I had complete control over my birthing process. Rainbow relaxation, an aspect of hypnobirthing, allowed me to channel my body’s awareness and work together with my son to give birth. I had never felt more connected to him or myself than when I took those three final deep breaths and saw him for the first time. I wept tears of joy to know that I was able to bring a child into this world without epidurals, pitocin, or the words “pain” and “contractions.” My birth was positive physically and spiritually and was a life changing experience for my husband and I. We are currently expecting our fourth child and I am thrilled to relive this enlightening and enriching experience again. Thank you again Treese for exposing us to a beautiful and memorable birthing experience, and for making me feel empowered during one of the most special moments of our lives.
