Doulas and Childbirth Classes

Hypnobabies – Cynthia Gough HCHI Hypnobabies is a thorough preparation for childbirth course that also includes training in ‘eyes-open’ (or waking), self-hypnosis techniques that our moms use to achieve natural childbirth with little or no discomfort. The tools they learn in classes help them to create a hypno-anesthesia in their bodies, just like the hypnosis-induced anesthesia that people can use to undergo surgeries and dental work without medical anesthesia. Since our moms learn waking hypnosis, our moms are able to move around freely, and to interact with their caregivers and support persons, all the while remaining deeply in a state of self-hypnosis and physical comfort. I’m teaching classes in the Salt Lake area. For more info and the class schedule go to: For more information, please see Hypnosis for Childbirth: What is it, and How Does it Work?, or email local Hypnobabies representative, Cynthia can also be reached by phone at (435)313-9104.

Hypnobabies – Amber Hardman HCHI

‘The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams’
– Eleanore Roosevelt

My love and passion is to support and educate women in pregnancy and childbirth. Birth is a wonderful celebration of new life. Through my own personal experience, I have come to find that the birth of a child is nothing to be feared. It can be a calm, wonderful, and joyous occasion. Free from pain, stress and discomfort. After the birth of my daughter, I knew this is what I was meant to do, help women find a way to have a gentle easy birth. To find out more visit:

I want you to feel supported throughout this period, regardless of where or how you give birth. My goal is to help educate you and your partner about your birth and help you feel like birth is a natural, normal process.

I love partners to feel included in the birth experience, as far as they’re comfortable. I enjoy showing them ways to help make you feel supported and comfortable during pregnancy and labor. I believe your partner has an intimate knowledge of you and I have an intimate knowledge of birth. Together, we make the ultimate team. I will help your partner feel included every step of the way.
