“Using Blissborn for our birth experience was one of the best decisions we ever made… the sense of calm brought about from using hypnosis was irreplaceable. As the laboring mother, I felt in control of the entire birthing process. My birth experience was quick, interesting, and virtually painless – so much so that I can’t wait to do it again.”
– Mindy & Craig
