I'm your HypnoBirthing expert here to support you through everything from TTC to the postpartum period for a calm & confident perinatal journey!
The journey to your baby isn't always straightforward.
From fertility, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, there
are a ton of changes that create a lot of emotions! I'm here to support you, guide, you, and teach you how to achieve your birth goals (and beyond!) through hypnosis.
Hypnosis isn't what you see on tv. It's about techniques for intentional calm, confidence, and incredible pain management - even in the heat of labour. It allows you to have little to no pain intervention (if that's what you want!), and to know your options, which is a huge part of having the birth you've dreamed of.
My clients have described their births as euphoric, calm, comfortable, and gentle. Have you ever heard someone describe their birth experience this way? Not outside of HypnoBirthing I'm sure!
When you work with me, the atmosphere is everything you need. From group classes, 1:1 support, counselling, or being present at your birth, I am calm, confident, and steady to guide you every step of the way - and I offer all of my classes and supports in English or Spanish. As a birth supporter, I'm here to provide families in the perinatal period a place where they can be supported and educated by specialized professionals while building community and feeling at home.
"Mercedes is knowledgeable, warm, and non-judgemental of the many different decisions couples have to make in their births. She's a wonderful teacher and person. I feel very confident in my ability to have the birth I've always wanted."
I have a BS in Psychology, and a MSc is Gestalt Psychotherapy. I'm also a Birth & Postpartum Doula, certified HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator, Fertility Consultant and DBL Baby Language Educator. Plus, I'm a mom - and I think we all know that's a major educational experience in itself!
When I found out I was pregnant, I looked into all the different ways I could birth. One of my personal priorities was to have a med-free birth, and while I looked into a few options, HypnoBirthing was the ultimate choice for me.
Using HypnoBirthing techniques, the birth went exactly how I planned; I slept through my labour and got to the hospital at 9.5 cm dilated. The doctors couldn't believe how calm I was! It was pretty incredible. I knew HypnoBirthing had so much to offer other pregnant people, so I got certified in order to help others enjoy their birthing experience. Pretty incredible, right?
One thing lead to another, and I dove into educating myself in everything I could to support more families in incredible ways.
Ready to be the next family I support in a calm, empowered birth?
