Through this very comprehensive course and with Lindsay’s skillful guidance, I learnt different natural pain relief methods, including self-hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques, to help me to cope with all the emotions, anxiety and pain that comes during childbirth.

Every class was always provided with very useful discussions and practice. Lindsay’s previous experience with the birth of her 2 daughters using the same hypnobirthing technique also made me feel even more confident and reassured of my choice.

And the result was that Lucas, my son, was born healthy and in a very peaceful labor in April 2018. Thank you Lindsay for this wonderful course and all your very useful tips on breastfeeding and healthy foods, too!

I loved taking this class, and I knew straight away that it would be of great help.

My labor was very smooth. No issues. I spent most of my it listening to the tracks, and I felt that my baby was descending more peacefully, the more I relaxed. 

Thank you so much Lindsay for this great tool that I know will accompany me, not only now, but for my whole life. Thanks to hypnobirthing, I am able to relax deeply in seconds. This is so useful as a daily tool.

We had the most amazing Hypnobirthing course with Lindsay.

This course gave us absolutely everything we needed to have an empowered and beautiful natural birth experience.

The breathing techniques learnt were absolutely crucial in facilitating this process.

I highly recommend this course and Lindsay as a health professional.

I have had such a great experience doing the HypnoBirthing course!

I have learnt so much about the female body during pregnancy, as well as the power of the mind.

I absolutely recommend these classes to any pregnant woman.

I believe that no matter the circumstance or outcome, that this is the most positive and peaceful way to journey through your pregnancy and birthing, and also in many other ways.

Thank you dearest Lindsay!!

This Hypnobirthing course was life changing and truly awakening!

We, as women were made to give birth naturally and I do believe it could be the most blissful experience out of medical interventions.

Prepare your mind, body & baby throughout Hypnobirthing, an internationally recognized technique that will change your perception & experience of birthing for the best🙏⭐

I attended Lindsay’s Hypnobirthing course for my second daughter and it was truly life changing.

Before the course, I was anxious about the birth and fearful that my first labour would repeat itself.

After the course with Lindsay, I felt empowered and informed to make decisions about the birth I wanted and confident that my birth partner and I would enjoy the experience of welcoming our second daughter to the world.

I cannot thank Lindsay enough for the tools and techniques she shared with us during the course.

I would recommend this course to all mums-to-be.
