I do not have a birthing partner, can I still apply for your sessions?

Why Hypnosis and not another method?
Marie Mongan was hypnotherapist, and based on her experience she found that existent fears and histories from other births, were preventing the moms to even consider natural births.

But the program is much more wider than hypnosis, and teaches techniques to support a relaxed and comfortable birth.
