My name is Lindsay Osterhoudt and I live in Raleigh, NC. I was lucky enough to discover Hypnobabies during my first pregnancy, before the days of Facebook and Social Media! I was amazed at how wonderful my birthing time could be and by the power of my own body. I'm blessed to be able to teach this amazing gift to other mothers as they grow their families.
I believe if you don't know your options in birth then you don't have any options! I'm excited to share my knowledge of Hypnobabies with you to empower you to make the best decisions for your family and your baby during your pregnancy and birthing time.
I am a registered Hypno-Doula through Hypnobabies® and a Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor. I have had the pleasure of teaching for seven years, teaching over 85+ families, as well as using Hypnobabies® for the birth of my own five children. I draw on my professional training as a doula and childbirth educator, knowledge, and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, education on information you need to make informed decisions as they arise during your birthing time. I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for birthing time progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning, hypnosis deepening, and other techniques for comfort.
Additionally, I'm a Body Ready Method Certified Birth Professional. I have been trained on how to help clients prepare their bodies to improve baby positioning and pelvic space. I'm educated on which movements will progress labor most, and positions which encourage progress—delaying or even eliminating the need for medical intervention. I've prepared with specific hands-on tools to encourage progress and address delays and I can help you advocate for the birth of your dreams! My calm presence and Hypnobabies knowledge make me an ideal doula for all of my Hypnobabies students.
Other natural childbirth courses have excellent programs and benefits that have helped many families have better, more relaxed births. Hypnobabies, helps prepare families to become self-reliant and confident about birthing their own way; safely and in much more physical comfort. This is achieved by overcoming negative belief systems and programming, and learning medical-grade, somnambulistic hypnosis techniques, My goal is helping families to enjoy their baby’s birth in peace and joy! Hypnobabies is the only birth hypnosis program that is a complete childbirth education class and uses “Eyes Open Childbirth Hypnosis”, which allows each student to walk and talk and move around freely yet remain deeply in hypnosis, very relaxed, fully present, aware and in touch with her body and baby and comfortable while doing so. Other programs rely on immobility for focus and concentration, which can severely impede the progress of labor and the descent and positioning of the baby.
Whether I'm your Hyponbabies Instructor our your Doula or both, I'm passionate about helping you succeed. I believe every family should be educated about their choices so they can make informed decisions about their pregnancy and baby's care. I can help you navigate all of the information so you can decide what's best for your family. I believe in you and in your body's ability to give birth!
