Pregnancy is unique among all the experiences a woman goes through in her lifetime. During this special time in her life, a woman experiences intense physiological changes and emotions.
Our journey enables a safe space where you, a pregnant woman, can connect with your and your baby’s wisdom and emotions. You will be able to express and process fears, worries, wishes and many special moments of deep connection.
I offer private hour-long sessions during pregnancy, through birth and the first weeks after giving birth.
Using a combination of tools and practices, through PrenatalBonding, HypnoBirthing and BirthStories, you will deepen and nurture the connection you have with yourself and your baby. Learning to navigate stress, you will shift from feeling anxious, stressed and powerless to feeling healthy, worthy, and confident. You will create an intense bond with the baby developing inside you, and develop an awareness of its needs and experiences.
Your thoughts, body, and heart will be in harmony, relaxation, and peace.
What is PrentalBonding?
The Prenatal Bonding method will give you tools during your pregnancy to bond and connect with your baby in a deep and meaningful way.
During pregnancy every thought a woman has, every move she makes, every feeling she feels, the air she breathes and the food she eats is all felt by the baby.
Prenatal Bonding will help you discover how your thoughts, feelings, and movements affect your baby and practice communicating with them in a meaningful dialog that will yield insights and understanding. Mother and baby will become a good team and both experience easier and calmer pregnancy and labor.
Be Present. Be connected. Be in Love.
What is HypnoBirthing?
HypnoBirthing® is a method that guides and prepares a woman in giving birth in a confident and peaceful manner. It considers the psychological, as well as the physical, well-being of the mother, her birth partner, and the newborn.
It is the fear of pain that often keeps the body tense and closed during birth.
Hypnobirthing teaches you how to release this fear so your body can open to an experience of gentle birthing.
HypnoBirthing® exercises build positive thoughts and relaxation techniques that release “feel good” and love hormones to the mother and to the baby that is developing inside her. That will lead to a calmer, more peaceful and wondrous pregnancy and labor.
The confidence, trust and life-affirming nature of your birth can be life-changing for you, for your baby and for your family.
Be calm. Be comfortable. Be peaceful.
Sharing your BirthStory
Giving birth, being born and the minutes after birth is a very special time in the mother’s and her baby’s life.
Whether your birth experience was as you wished or not, remembering it is a powerful way to welcome your baby with reverence and love.
Telling your birth story is a powerful tool to help you process, make meaning of, heal from, preserve, remember, celebrate and honor your unique experience of birth. Sharing your giving birth and your baby being born, you will connect with yourself in a deeply meaningful way. It can transform emotions that you may hold and impact the way that you are connected with yourself as a mom and with your baby.
Through this remarkable journey, you and the baby developing inside you will create a tight emotional bond. Practicing Prenatal Bonding, HypnoBirthing and mindfulness you will develop a dialog that will yield insights and understandings, and will acquire tools to help you through pregnancy, birth and the adjustments that follow it. Your baby will be calm, confident and emotionally balanced, and will possess curiosity and readiness to discover themselves and the world.
What mothers are saying.
"Prenatalbonding during pregnancy was a very deep and meaningful experience for me and for my baby. It gave me a feeling of both physical and emotional purification, and without a doubt contributed to both of us. My child is a very special child; he is happy, open and wise."
- R. Barletz
“By doing PrenatalBonding I bonded with my baby in a very unique way. It feels like she loves the world and the world loves her."
- O. Gal
"My conversations with my little baby girl started at parentalbonding sessions. I see now how my journey with her before she came to this world made her transition and adjustment much smoother than with my older kids. She came ready, happy and immediately bonded with all of us! A wonderful gift to mommy, baby and the whole family."
- M. T Sbero
“Prenatalbonding was a key factor in creating a healthy bond between myself and my son during and after our pregnancy. It helped to create an introspective, calm stress free environment during the all-important months before birth. Every woman is unique, and carries her own emotional history into her pregnancy, so each journey is different; that said, I feel that without prenatalbonding, my son’s first experiences would have been more challenging, more stressful and therefore potentially detrimental to his development. Having just directed IN UTERO, a documentary about the longterm impact of our pre-birth experiences, I have learned that our first environment is in some ways the most influential. Therefore, I hope that more and more women will have access to prenatalbonding and other therapies that promote deeper attunement with their babies from the very beginning."
- K Gyllenhaal
"I was very fortunate to work with Hagit during my pregnancy. She not only helped me bond with my developing baby, but she also helped me mentally prepare for childbirth and beyond. My baby was born calm and alert, and I'm certain that his happy disposition is in large part the result of my work with Hagit. She truly cares about her clients, and I am extremely grateful to have had her presence and support throughout my pregnancy. I highly recommend her!"
