“We were delighted to attend Charlotte”s HypnoBirthing classes in our second trimester of our first pregnancy. The course was filled with interesting information and more importantly the classes were fun and interactive.
Charlotte focuses not only on the core class material but also has the ability to blend it with your own personal situation. Charlotte built up our knowledge for what we were about to go through, enabling us with different methods and tools to approach the birth (cesarean or natural) calmly.
