Melissa provided a wealth of knowledge in her hypnobirthing course and is all about birthing without fear – no matter the birth. I truly felt unbelievable during Iyla-Mays birth.

I felt really confident in my body going into my second birth and came out feeling like a real warrior.

This is all thanks to the info and education learned from the hypnobirthing course for my first birth. I, unfortunately, let my fear get the better of me in my first birth, but I took it all in the second time around and truly embraced the power of birth.

I felt so amazing and fulfilled and it was a completely different experience. I had to be induced due to medical reasons but I still felt in control of my body. I even had a student midwife present (this was her 3rd birth) and as soon as Iyla-May was born, she looked at me and said “Wow, that was amazing!” so we both got an incredible experience out of it thanks to you!

I believe the positive experience also helped with the post-birth healing and recovery, both mentally and physically.

Thanks so much.
