My husband Nathan and I greatly enjoyed Zina's 5-day HypnoBirthing course.
I highly recommend this class to any expectant couple. My first daughter was born via emergency c-section, which I completely blame on my lack of preparation knowledge. After attending Zina's class, which was actually a one day seminar version of the complete hypnobirthing class, I now understand so much more about the woman's body and natural labor process. I feel completely prepared to practice the techniques she taught us when I go into labor this second time and confident that I can have a successful VBAC. My husband also feels much more knowledgable, empowered, and prepared to serve as my partner and support during labor. Zina provides a super intimate and comfortable space (with snacks!) to ask any questions and discuss past experiences and any concerns openly. She's super accommodating to the group and flexible and asks for anyone to reach out if they have any other questions that arise after the class is over. This class was so extremely helpful! Thank you, Zina!
My husband and I attended Zina's hypnobirthing class this past weekend. It was awesome! Zina is extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful throughout her teachings. We both definitely feel more prepared for the natural birth that we are planning for in the coming months! I would highly recommend the class and working with Zina! Many thanks!!
I'd recommend Zina's Hypnobirthing class to any expectant mother (whether or not you're hoping to have a natural birth). After taking her class I felt better educated and prepared for labor than I think most women have to opportunity to experience. The class teaches not only how to relax and breathe throughout labor, but it educates you on the physical interactions between your baby and your body throughout the birthing experience. With this I went into my labor excited for the event rather than scared or worried. I just gave birth to our first baby girl and honestly couldn't have done it without Zina's support (both during and after the class). Even though she isn't there in the delivery room with you, all of her techniques and calmness will help to coach you and motivate you throughout your labor. Not to mention, your partner will be incredibly prepared to play an active role during the delivery. Thank you Zina!!
Zina's class was everything my husband and I hoped it would be--informative and empowering. We took the class in an all-day seminar format, from 10 AM to 4 PM on a Saturday. The class was intimate, which allowed us to get to know the other couples and feel comfortable to ask questions and share from our own experience.
My partner and I just finished hypnobirthing class with Zina and loved it. We both felt empowered and learned a lot about the mind/body connection and birth itself.
