A few words from Drew*
"They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I can think of no greater testament to the profound impact of Blissborn on our birth experience than this photo of my wife Karin and our newborn Alex shortly after delivery."
Dr. Drew's amazing book The Very Cool Life Code is changing lives and teaching people how to live an infinitely cooler existence.
Some more nice words:
"I used Blissborn birth hypnosis for my first child who was born January 2011. I went through the classes with Laura via Skype since there was nowhere close that was certified. We covered a vast array of subjects, worked through fear, and learned how to manage pain. I was religious about listening to the cd's every day, sometimes twice a day.
"I was completely floored when I went into labor and delivered only 6 hours later. I was blessed with an incredibly short, problem free, and only mildly painful birth:) I can promise it wasn't luck, only the hard work that was put into the program. You really do get out of it what you put in. You have to have an open mind and the drive to WANT this to work, I think that's what ultimately made this work for me:)
"Again, Blissborn gave me the birth experience that I had my heart set on, it was beautiful and I cannot wait until I get the opportunity to do it again."

A few special notes about beginning your custom training with one of the world's foremost experts in childbirth hypnosis and education
You'll need to bring your birth partner to each session – he or she is an essential part of the birth team and receives personal birth and hypnosis training in each session.
The training is custom-planned for you and your partner. We customize Blissborn for you where you are right now, based on your knowledge, experience and goals for your baby’s birth.
As part of your private training, you will also receive six practice hypnosis CDs and a comprehensive book written by Blissborn’s founders. The book and CDs deepen and expand on your training, and provide specific guidance for various situations. They are also a perfect companion in labor.
You’ll have the opportunity to connect with your instructor anytime by email for support, guidance, and motivation. It's like having your personal hypnotherapist and childbirth educator on speed dial!
If you want extra support you can call your instructor when you’re in labor for advice and guidance. Sometimes this can make all the difference!
Continue your growth work after the baby comes through hypnotherapy sessions with your instructor at a discounted rate. Sessions can be conducted in person, by phone or through Skype.
