I'm Nicole, and I'm so grateful that you're taking the time to read about Hypnobabies and how I came to be a part of teaching this incredible program. I am a two time Hypno-mom to a 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter. My professional background includes work with children and families from birth through high school as a bilingual social worker. I hold a Master's degree from Columbia University in Social Work, with a concentration in advanced clinical practice and school-based services. I have always been dedicated to working with children and family systems, and am extremely excited to have recently begun the journey of working with families prenatally as well. During my undergraduate studies in Human Development, the most fascinating class I had the privilege of taking was entitled "The Psychology of Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Motherhood". I have always been enthralled and fascinated with all things baby, childbirth, and mothering. When I had the opportunity to welcome my first child, I was so fortunate to find a Hypnobabies group class in the area and attend the 6 week session with my husband. We both felt wonderfully prepared, confident, and empowered going into the birth of our son, and had an equally incredible experience welcoming our daughter three years later. I am thrilled to be bringing the opportunity to experience an empowered, calm and positive birth to more mothers and families in our area as a certified Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor.
