What is Active Hypnobirth?

Unlike other hypnobirthing methods, we teach Active/Alert hypnosis, which enables you to remain awake, aware, and fully in control at all times during laborYou’ll be able to change positions, walk, and talk while remaining totally relaxed and comfortable. 

You'll learn to breathe, move, and vocalize intuitively, to speed up labor and turn down discomfort. You'll feel 100% in control, while deeply relaxed and calm. Our unique approach to birth hypnosis has been changing the lives of thousands of Curtis Method families for over a decade.

Partner Affirmations

18 years ago, I was pregnant with my first child, and absolutely terrified. Scared to have an epidural. Scared to go natural. Scared of EVERTHING. I wanted to enjoy my pregnancy, but fear had completely taken over.

Pregnant with my third son after two very difficult births, I knew something had to change. I got certified in hypnosis, and combined it with yoga, breath work, and vocalization; pioneering an ACTIVE approach to Hypnobirthing. 

AND IT WORKED. This program is the result of nearly 12 years of polishing and perfecting the system that allowed me to birth my third and fourth sons quickly and comfortably, without pain or tearing.

So I could tell you all about my list of credentials as a Certified Doula, Hypnobirthing Practitioner, professional singer and voiceover artist, yoga instructor, and licensed Hypnotherapist through The National Guild of Hypnotists.

But I'd rather talk about the fact that YOU already have the power within you to have an amazing, joyful, comfortable birth. This program is designed to help you FIND that innate power and harness it. 

YOU CAN DO IT. I can show you how.
