    Comment:  I think every mom would benefit from learning about this technique, whether they from planned C-section to home birth. This method is all about relaxation and allowing the body to do what it is meant to naturally do during the birthing process. I learned so much about how to breathe, how to listen to my body, and how to reframe what was going on, as it was going on (for example: in hypnobirthing we call contractions "surges"). Maeva was very flexible as far as making up classes that we couldn't attend because of work schedules, and she was available over email for any lingering questions, of which I had many. I loved this class so much and believe that the months of practice I had with the breathing and visualization techniques allowed me to have exactly the birth that I wanted.Based on a May 2017 birthing experience

    Comment:  Maeva - Hypnobirthing5 stars. Maeva is a wealth of knowledge, connections in the birthing community, and goes the distance to support expecting parents. We took the class in her home, and really enjoyed the personal environment, the other couples, and learned so much that prepared us for a natural birth.Based on a June 2017 birthing experience

    Comment:  Maeva Althaus - Maeva's HypnoBirthing class helped me feel prepared and excited for a low intervention birth. Her class, 5 sessions of 2 hours each, was fun to attend and very informative. I like that we practiced the breathing and visualization techniques, and practiced different birthing positions. I also enjoyed the audio meditations that you do at home every day/several times per week. I felt like I was able to easily recall the strategies when I was in labor at the hospital. The emphasis on the birthing partner being prepared was also incredibly helpful. My husband had many tools that he used during our baby's birth.Based on December 2016 birth experience

    Comment:  Member Review: Maeva is a knowledgeable instructor. I felt super well prepared for child birth after taking her class. I did not end up using all of the techniques but I was glad I had them as tools available to me. (Review submitted via the 2014 Birthing Survey)
