Lori has extensive experience working with and training groups of people; over 15 years of experience in the field of maternal and child health; and over 15 years of experience using HypnoBirthing® principles and practices.
Lori initially was a client of HypnoBirthing®, having used the method to deliver each of her three children gently and naturally. In fact, the ease with which she was able to bring her children into this world is what prompted her to become a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner in 2010. In order to better support her couples with healing their other health concerns and in finding balance in their lives, Lori completed a rigorous, 185-hour hypnosis training course in 2011; she is a Certified Hypnotist through the National Guild of Hypnotists. Lori is also a Certified HypnoBirthing Fertility Consultant and a Certified HypnoBirthing Infant Massage Instructor.
Lori has a Masters of Public Administration degree in public policy/international health. Prior to having children of her own, she spent years improving maternal and child health programs around the world.
Lori’s approach is compassionate and is focused on meeting the highest needs of the mother and baby. She offers both group and private sessions.
My HypnoBirthing® Experience
I was originally a client of HypnoBirthing®, having used the method to deliver each of my three children gently and naturally. With each birth, I experienced sensations of waves of tightening or pressure, but no pain. While HypnoBirthing® cannot make any guarantees about what sensations each individual woman will or will not experience during the birthing process, HypnoBirthing® does help return birth to a more calm, peaceful experience, thereby helping women birth more gently, more easily, and with dignity. In fact, the ease with which I was able to bring my children into this world is what prompted me to become a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner. I also have experience with a variety of birthing environments, having delivered my eldest child in a hospital, my middle child in a birthing center, and my youngest child at home. I look forward to working with you!
– Love, Lori
