Hi, I'm Jessica Hill. I have a deep passion for supporting expectant couples throughout pregnancy and beyond. When I was expecting my first born, I took HypnoBirthing® classes and had an empowering natural birth in a hospital setting with midwives. My second pregnancy was high risk and I again called on these techniques to stay calm and focused throughout pregnancy and birth. After my birthing experiences, in early 2018, I certified as an educator with the HypnoBirthing® Institute. It brings me so much joy to be in service to expecting families and I would be honoured to be chosen as your birth educator. It is my goal to help families feel prepared, relaxed and confidant about their upcoming birth. I believe that the combination of breath, visualization, education, self-hypnosis, affirmations and relaxation will give expecting couples the tools they need for a calm and empowering birth.

HypnoBirthing® is a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that when a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally, and spiritually, she can experience the joy of birthing her baby in an easier, more comfortable way. HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy as it is a technique that introduces hypnosis, a naturally induced state of relaxed concentration in which we communicate suggestions to our subconscious mind. This part of our mind influences what we think, how we feel and the choices we make. Almost anyone who chooses to can reach deep relaxation and redirect their focus. Birthing becomes a calm, relaxed experience, without the fear and tension that cause pain. The body’s natural anaesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones that create pain, and when it’s time for baby to be born, the mother is empowered, confident and peaceful.
