Hypnosis for birthing absolutely can provide a pain-free birth for a mother. I've seen it, I've experienced it, I've had mothers text me in the middle of birth saying, "I don't feel any pain at all. This is amazing." But I've also worked with moms who have been very committed to the program of feeding their mind with positive messages, doing hypnosis every day, and still may feel discomfort during their birthing time. instead of focusing on pain versus no pain, I encourage moms to focus on having a stress-free birth, on having a fearless birth. So instead of doing what we've been trained to do by society which is hyper-focus on the pain, we are focusing on, "Whatever my body experiences during my birth is okay. I'm comfortable with that." Regardless of pain, I can definitely say that hypnosis for child birth can create a more relaxed, amore enjoyable and easier birthing time versus something that's very fearful and that we go into terrified of the outcome. Mom who use hypnosis typically are very confident in the choices that they make during their births and have a really positive experience.

Doula & Hypnosis Instructor

Mandy Schutt was backpacking around the world when she decided that she wanted to become a doula. As she floated through the Amazon Pampas with two European midwives, she was immediately captivated by their birth stories and the culture of womanhood that they spoke of. Traveling on through South America, Europe, and Asia, she was able to witness motherhood in a different light than she had before. When she ran across the term, "doula" for the first time, she knew this was a name she wanted to claim for herself!

Mandy looks at a woman's ability to grow another life inside of her as nothing short of a miracle. She supports women in their efforts to discover this for themselves and know that the act of giving birth is more than just an isolated event in a mother's life, it is realization of an empowerment that many never realized existed. She gave birth to her daughter in 2009, which was the single most amazing event of her life. Mandy believes that women should birth where and how they are the most comfortable and secure. Her safe place was in her home with a midwife, her husband, a doula, hypnosis, and a gorgeous pool of pain-dissolving water!
