HypnoBirthing® Burlington


"HypnoBirthing ®prenatal classes were so much more than we expected.  My husband was surprised at how helpful the course was for him.  It provided him with tools to help guide me through the final weeks of pregnancy and into the labour and delivery of our precious baby boy.  This was very empowering for him in a situation where the partner often feels like a helpless bystander. 

Situations arose during our labour that could easily provoke fear and anxiety, but I listened to the positive affirmations and relaxation CDs repetitively and utilized the techniques that we learned in the course which enabled me go with the flow and remain confident that my body and my baby would figure it all out.  I could feel the difference in the surges when I was letting fear take over versus when I relaxed and let my body do what it is designed to do.  My midwife was amazed at how the baby’s heart rate remained calm and steady the whole time and she commented on how pink and alert he was after the birth.

Dominique was an extremely supportive and patient instructor.  She helped create a relaxed atmosphere that allowed our group to bond, learn from each others experiences, and learn the required techniques to be prepared and equipped for a successful birth.  I still find myself using the relaxation and breathing techniques during stressful breastfeeding times, and in my daily life in general.   We strongly recommend that you consider using Hypnobirthing as a prenatal option to help you you define and achieve your birth plan."  Jill Mueller and Adam Smyth                                                                                                                                       

"My first birth I found to be a traumatic experience so when I found out I was pregnant again I started researching different techniques for a natural drug free birth.  My midwife had mentioned about HypnoBirthing® so I borrowed the book from their library. I am not much of a reader however I could not put the book down.  I read three quarters of the book in 2 days and finished the book by the end of the week.  I took that as a sign that Hypnobirthing was definitely the technique I was going to pursue.  I felt like it was meant to help me.  I found Dominqiue and she has definitely been a great teacher and blessed to have met this lovely person.   I was so happy with my experience I tend to over talk it. I had prayed a lot for the experience I wanted this time and from the beginning was blessed to have a team of support that literally fell together like it was meant to be.  I don't think I would have managed as well as I did without Hypnobirthing.  Thank you so much Dominique." Lisa and Chris Gravitis           

" I was able to have a home birth and it was a pretty short labour - only about 5 hours.  It truely was a relaxed, calm and peaceful labour - even my midwives said that although they weren't very familiar with it before, they were "completely sold' on HypnoBirthing® after seeing a birth in action.  I think learning about these techniques and practicing them regularly really prepared me to maintain a calm state and focus on breathing and the positive outcome of the whole process.  I even feel that our little Tessa is a very calm, relaxed baby.  Even though it's only been a few days after birth - I'm amazed at how my energy feels good and my body feels strong.  Thanks so much for your wonderful guidance and teaching.  My experience has been so memorable and grea." Krista and Shaun D'Aoust 

"Ryan and I want to let you know we had our baby boy on November 30th, 2013.  We also wanted to let you know that by taking your class it educated us on hypnobirthing as well as what to expect during labour.  I believe I benefited from your class and I thank you for that.  I did get to have the birht of my choice, which I am so happy about since the midwives were concerned about my low hemoglobin, platelets and red blood cell count (not being in the normal range.)  We did not have any complications.  I would highly recommned a home water birth to all expectant mothers that are able to have that type of birth.  I felt safe, calm and in control.  I have a beautiful birth story to share wth other moms unlike the horror stories I usually hear.  I don't belive I would be in the same situation if I didn't take your class and have midwives.  Thank you again for your knowledge." Carolyn, Ryan and Brayden

"We both wanted to thank you again for all the support, love and care you enriched us with through yoga and Hypnobirthing®.  The deep breathing helped keep me calm throughout the weekend before he was born and especially during the insertion of the spinal block.  I was really scared  and anxious about being frozen (since I didnt want an epidural if vaginal) but I had no option.  The staff at Jospeh Brant were wonderful and the nurse helped me breath deep and calm during the spinal insertion and after it was in I felt total euphoria and the anthesialogist actually told me to stop breathing so deeply or I might actually pass out! LOL....Without your techniques and months of preparation I know I wouldn`t have been the same and had the same birthing experience.  Words cannot express how thankful we are to you!" Heather and Jeff Davidson

"Because of some concerns about Clara we ended up at the hospital instead of at home, but I was still able to have a totally natural and wonderful birth.  I used my breathing and HypnoBirthing® techniques, and had a completely pain free labour and delivery. Clara was in some distress right after she was born, but she recovered and was in my room in a couple of hours. She's strong as an ox and already back up to her birth weight, so no concerns there! Thank you so much for introducing us to Hypnobirthing® - it made for such a peaceful and wonderful experience, and I'd love for that message to be shared.  We look forward to seeing you soon at Mom and baby yoga." Megan Merwart                                                                             

"Our little boy, Tristan, was born Sunday afternoon just one day after his due date. The delivery was really quick and I felt that all the visualisation and meditation we have done in class has really, really helped me go through these last contractions! Thank you so much for these  classes, they have been a real pleasure to go to, something to look forward every week." Cecile Fradin                                                             

"I have known Dominique for several years and I knew that she was the local expert in pre-natal yoga classes, so when I found out I was pregnant, I registered for her classes. I started at 12 weeks and continued until about 1 week before I had my baby. I loved Dominique's classes and in fact recommended it to several friends who joined me in the class. Dominique's class style, techniques and soothing voice help to make the classes a relaxing and enjoyable environment. I would highly recommend her pre-natal classes, several times a week if possible during any stage of pregnancy."  Julie Boyer
