My name is Sheridan Ripley. I have always loved all things pregnancy, birth and babies. (I used to ditch high-school, go to the library and read pregnancy books) I am a DONA trained doula (labor assistant) and I am excited to be a Hypnobabies Instructor. I am happy to have found something to help me share my passion for childbirth with others!
I am also so excited to announce my new book! The Top Three Tips to Enjoy Your Birth. You can read it for free!
I know hypnosis can benefit mom's during their pregnancy and their birth... as well as after, from personal experience and from hearing others experiences too. I am a mom to 3 boys! Devon, my first was a preemie, born by an emergency c-section. Carson was a VBAC using a different hypnosis method and Bryson was a VBAC using Hypnobabies. (click on their names to read their birth stories)
I know first hand that it is possible to have a pain free un-medicated birth using Hypnobabies.
No, I don't have a high pain tolerance. No, I am not someone lucky enough to have easy labors. Once I was a mom yelling at the dad begging for an epidural due to pain during one of my births....
With the right tools, information and practice anyone can benefit from hypnosis for childbirth!
I completed Doula training through DONA. It was interesting watching the Natural Childbirth videos. Then I asked to share the video of Bryson's birth. It was a VERY different feeling, peaceful and calm and enjoyable. Natural Childbirth does not have to be painful! What a wonderful revelation. No drugs for baby and no pain for mommy!
