This is what Hypnobabies does, it helps pregnant women and expectant couples dream about and achieving a birth they never could have imagined without Hypnobabies

Linda Cummings: Birth Day a Kinder Way is not only the name of my business, it is a Childbirth class I offer that can give you an opportunity to have the birth of your dreams. In addition to my Certification as a Hypnobabies Instructor, I am also a Hypno-doula and Master Hypnotist offering Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy to individuals in Orange County at Life Renewal Hypnosis in Tustin

Kimberly Gross: I have been empowering and supporting families as an educator, doula and student midwife since 2006. My extensive experience in the birthing field allows me to bring specific expertise and invaluable skills to my teaching, my Hypno-Doula engagements and my work as Vice President at Hypnobabies, LLC … and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else – I love my job!  I am always happy to help families have a much easier and more comfortable birth, so please let me know how I can serve you best.

Carrie Mendes:  I am a mother of two amazing Hypno-babies. I am passionate about birth and when I’m not being mommy to my kiddos, it is my goal to help as many families as I can, experience the same kind of joy and empowerment I did when I gave birth to my precious little ones. I’m beyond thrilled and honored to help expecting couples, as their doula and their teacher (sometimes both!), learn how to have, and experience, empowered, easy and joyous birthings. I am teaching in Santa Ana on Sunday afternoons, and Lake Forest on Wednesday evenings.

Shaz Rahman:  I am a Hypno-mom to two beautiful girls and was so blown away by an amazing Hypnobabies Hospital Birth and a second Hypnobabies Home Birth that I knew I wanted to let everyone know and teach this class to other expectant parents. I live in Irvine, CA with my husband and daughters. Hypnobabies not only changed my life but has changed the way my husband views birth and his sense of wonderment is evident when he talks about our experience bringing our daughters into this world with peace and love. My daughters are so full of life and energy and have taught me to view the world through their innocence, wonder and love for the simplest things in life. I hope that you will join us in our Hypnobabies class to experience a beautiful, easy and comfortable birth!

Lorraine Shorman:  My name is Lorraine Shorman and I have been a Certified Hypnobabies instructor since 2003.  For 14 years I have been teaching this amazing program to  expectant couples so they can enjoy their birth experience to the fullest, and to help them have an easy, comfortable birth.  I am the owner of the Prenatal Education Center in Los Alamitos and also offer prenatal yoga, pilates, and fitness classes, prenatal massage,maternity photography and hypno-doula services throughout Orange County”

Sheri Garcia:  My name is Sheri Garcia and my husband and I used Hypnobabies during our first daughter’s birth and fell in love with the program.  I have always remembered being in love with babies and always knew I wanted to be a mom.  What was a pleasant surprise was how much I loved ALL the concepts and education that pregnancy and birthing entails. I am looking forward to each and every opportunity I have to teach other mamma’s and their birth partners to use Hypnobabies to have a calm, more comfortable birthing. I’m looking forward to meeting you and helping you navigate through this adventure!
