Maya was instrumental in helping us have the birth we dreamt of. She succinctly explained how hypnobirthing facilitates the relaxation so crucial to a positive experience. My boyfriend was quite skeptical at first, but Maya eliminated those doubts. We came to realize that there is nothing wishy-washy about hypnotherapy. It is based on factual research, biology, experience and common sense. Maya earned our trust and was an excellent teacher and communicator. As a result, we had a wonderful experience that I’d previously thought was impossible for a first time mum: a birth at home, in water and with no drugs or interventions. Maya gave me the confidence to trust in my body’s ability to give birth, and that is exactly what it did. I’m convinced that without hypnobirthing, that would not have been possible.
