Interview at a local cafe or the comfort of your home. This is to go over any questions or concerns you may have and to get to know each other and to make sure our personalities mesh.
Two In home Appointments
At the consecutive meetings, we get to know each other a little better to strengthen our bond before birth. We will review birthing positions, Hypnobabies® scripts (for Hypno-students), relaxation techniques, birth plans, and anything else the couple would like to review.
