As I prepare to meet my third child, I’m happy to announce that Chattanooga has a new Hypnobabies instructor. Rachel Jimenez trained April 2012 to become our next Hypnobabies instructor. Rachel is a great resource in our birth community. She is a ICAN co-leader, birth doula, postpartum doula, placenta encapsulator and my go-to Frontier co-op orderer.
I’m really thankful that Rachel decided to become an instructor. The success of Hypnobabies is growing really fast in our community. I regularly get referrals from local hospital and home birth based midwives, doulas, as well as a few OB/GYN’s. These care providers love Hypnobabies because the parents come away from the class having tools to use, feeling confident and typically are a bit more relaxed during the birthing process.
Rachel will be teaching her first class session on July 22nd at Four Seasons Acupuncture. The class series is six weeks long and will finish on August 26th. The class runs from 2:00pm until 5:30 pm. Class fees are $350 and this includes all materials. A $50 deposit is required to hold your place in class. Class space is limited to five couples, so contact Rachel as soon as possible if you or someone you know is interested. Her website is Nurtured Birth Services.
