Lauralyn Curtis thank you so much for your wonderful hypnobirthing instruction! It helped make my hospital birth the natural birth I had dreamed of. It never once occurred to me to ask for pain medication throughout my 18 hour labor — the thought literally never entered my mind. I had a great doula, an amazingly supportive husband and a wonderful team of midwives that went to bat for me when the attending physician was getting antsy. I knew I wanted a natural birth because it was best for baby, but was initially intimidated by the idea! Thank you for helping me prepare, trust my body and embrace the power of the process. I’m still a little amazed by what I did.
