Just as a woman's heart
knows how and when to
pump, her lungs to inhale,
and her hand to pull back
from fire, so she knows
when and how to give

I am a certified Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor (HCHI) and I offer group and private
classes.  You can find more information about
Hypnobabies here.  Classes are comparably priced with
local Bradley and HypnoBirthing classes.

Hypnobabies is a 6-week complete childbirth education course
and a
course in self-hypnosis for childbirth.  Classes are divided into one
3.5-hour class per week.  That's a total of 21 in-class hours of
childbirth and self-hypnosis preparation for your beautiful birth!

Course Materials:

the Hypnobabies Workbook (nearly 300 pgs of wonderful info!)
the Hypnobabies Quick Reference Guide/Birth Partner's Guide
7 CDs for the Hypno-Mom
1 CD for the Birth Partner
a special handout based on the book Back Labor No More,
    created with permission by the author specifically for
    Hypnobabies students
7 Hypnobabies scripts on paper
& various wonderful handouts

Group Classes
(Available in Tyler, Longview, & now Shreveport/Bossier City)
Group classes are offered throughout the year and are hosted either in a mother/couple's home or various locations around the Houston metro area.  The hosting family receives a discount on their
course fee, with the added benefit of not having to leave their home!  For a class series to be confirmed a
minimum of three couples is required, with a maximum five couples.  Please
contact me for more
information and pricing.  Please also let me know if you are interested in hosting a course (I offer a
discount for the hosting family).  

Private Classes in Your Home
The same wonderful class, just tailored to your birth preparation and needs, and at a time and day that
works best for you! Please
contact me for more information.

Hypnobabies Home Study Advantage Course
A 2 to 3 hour class for Hypnobabies Home Study families.  In this class we fine tune your Hypnobabies
practice, review any course content you have questions or need additional information about, practice
all of your Hypnobabies tools and techniques, with a special focus on your Birth Partner getting
practice and feeling increasingly more confident in supporting you with your Hypnobabies practice,
view some Hypnobabies birth videos, and a birth rehearsal, using all of your tools and techniques in
combination with productive birth and pushing positions.  

contact me for more information, pricing, and specials for any of the above class options.

                        Birth Doula Services

As a birth doula, my goal is to help you discover your options
and resources, and to support you emotionally as you prepare
for your birth.  Every mother deserves to feel loved, cherished,
and completely supported as she brings her baby into the world!  

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and I am a
certified birth doula with
Doulas of North America International
(DONA) and a certified Hypnobabies Childbirth
Hypnosis Instructor (HCHI) andHypno-Doula (HCHD).

A free, no obligation consultation meeting.

2 Prenatal Visits - Each visit is typically 2 hours long.

During these visits we will discuss ...
how your pregnancy is going - your health, helpful exercise, preparations at home, and how
your visits are with your care provider, etc.
how you envision your birth
create a personal Birth Preferences plan
discuss the birth process and consumer choices  
provide additional childbirth education information, if necessary
I can attend a prenatal visit with you and your care provider (optional)
I will provide a copy of my Pregnancy, Birth, & Beyond Local Resource Guide
and you will have free access to my lending library of books, magazines, and videos on
pregnancy, baby massage, birth, breastfeeding, babywearing, parenting, and natural living.
Birth photography, when possible and if desired.

I am also happy to provide information about babywearing, show samples of different s
lings and carriers, and to provide information and a demonstration on cloth diapering, if you are interested.

The Birth - Unlimited service time.
I will be available to you 24/7 for the two weeks before and the week following your birth.  As soon as
you are confident that your birthing time (labor) has begun I ask that you contact me.  We will talk
about where you are in the process, helpful things to remember, and what your options are at that
stage of your birthing time.  Whenever and wherever you decide you want me with you, I will be there,
assisting with comfort measures, emotional and information support, hypnosis cues (if applicable), still
and/or video photography (when possible), and breastfeeding support immediately following the
birth, if desired.  

1 Postpartum Visit - Typically 2-3 hours long.
During this visit we will discuss how you are acclimating to your new addition, how your birth went,
baby soothing techniques (specifically Happiest Baby on the Block), and review any postpartum issues,
breastfeeding assistance, if desired, and overall how your new family is doing.  I can also perform light
housekeeping upon request for an additional fee of $20/hr.

Please call for pricing and specials.  I offer a discounted rate for families who would like to
combine two or more of my services, and for families with an active service member.

Understanding that we all find ourselves in tough financial situations now and then, I am always open
to working out a payment plan that fits your budget.  I also offer discounts for combining services.  
Please don't hesitate to
contact me to discuss option.
