"I'm officially a certified Hypnobabies instructor!!
At the risk of sounding dramatic, I want to thank some people!
Thanks to Bess Greevy for telling me at 36 weeks pregnant with my first, "you need a doula" and giving me the email address for arguably the best doula in town at the time.
Thanks to the amazing, beautiful and passionate Micky Jones for empowering me to have the best births for me and introducing me to the "birth world" and Hypnobabies.
Also thanks to Micky and Sarah Parker McKay for the doula training that undoubtedly helped this process.
Thanks to Kerry Tuschoff, Carole Thorpe, & Kim Gross for the work that went in to putting this program together and training so many people and putting the hours in to read & grade exams. Thank you for what you are providing for expectant Moms & their birth partners.
Thanks to Kate, for her support, interest, and encouragement.
Thanks to Ryan Smith who kept the boys on his own while I was in New Orleans for six days being trained and who made sure they were taken care of when I needed to work toward this goal. Who supported my desire to do something I love and who has sacrificed to see it happen.
And praise to GOD from whom all blessings flow!
I'm sure that there are more! Thanks to all my friends and family!"
