We started the hypnobirthing class quite late in my pregnancy which left us little time to really practice, but we were dilligent and did all we could. The back and neck strain I had been experiencing as my pregnancy progressed was marvelously relieved by the relaxation practice that we did and I was very positive that my home birth experience would be all that I hoped. I had more time to practice than initially anticipated as our initial “guess date” passed and the ultrasonographers estimated date passed and we were filled daily with intense anticipation of the birth of our first child. Hypnobirthing is intended to apply to any situation as birth is always unique and somewhat unpredictable. In my case, my water broke more than twenty four hours before hard labor ensued. I utilized the relaxation techniques throughout and did very well except for an inability to sleep as I was too concerned over the well being of our child. By the time hard labor began I was very fatigued and found myself less successful in relaxing than I had been previously. My progress was discouragingly slow but then began to progress very quickly indeed. I would have to say that at the end there was little application of the techniques I had learned except in the quiet, calm encouragement of my husband. This and the support of a very capable midwife who respected my birthing wishes made for a wonderful experience. And there is nothing like the rushing sense of joy and intense love that I felt as our tiny baby girl was placed on my chest and I saw her for the first time.
The final stages of labor were more difficult than I had hoped, but I definitely feel that continued practice and application of the relaxation techniques I learned through hypnobirthing will make our next experience more pleasant. It is certainly my intention to use these techniques throughout any subsequent pregnancy and delivery.

Taralee’s class was an absolute game changer in my birth. I came to hypnobirthing simply looking for a way to stay calm during my birth as I normally experience terrible anxiety being in hospitals. I left with so much more!! Taralee helped me find the right providers for me, the best hospital for my situation and even offered an extra bit of help to my husband and I as he was out of town for most my pregnancy. I had an absolutely beautiful birth and I truly believe that it wouldn’t have been so without Taralee an her class. Worth every minute and every penny!
I am so grateful we invested the time and money in Teralee’s class. Our birth experience was amazing and I don’t think we would have had the same experience if we weren’t so prepared from her class. She is also so personable and easy to connect with. Highly recommend!

I recommend Teralees class to all the soon-to-be parents I know. Teralee is knowledgeable and has a such a non-judgemental approach to supporting the families that take her class. I loved that no matter what decisions we were making in preparation for our birth that the principles of hypnobirthing could be applied.
Teralee also supported us beyond the class with consultation phone calls and extra hynosis scripts. Our baby was breech for a long time and I felt like Teralee showed a personal investment in helping us navigate our birth options. I applied the hynobirthing techniques I learned in the class for a ECV (external cephalic version) and it went so smoothly! We were able to have an unmedicated vaginal birth and it was amazing.
