My project is aimed to help women to overcome their fears and build their confidence around pregnancy and childbirth using HypnoBirthing.

Who am I?

My name is Zanny and I'm a military wife of 6 years. In January 2019 I gave birth to my daughter using HypnoBirthing. I did a HypnoBirthing course and practiced up to the time I give birth. I give birth to my daughter within 3 hours, naturally and left the hospital the very next day after losing almost 2 liters of blood during the birthing. I credited these results to the work I did on my mindset, changing my beliefs, practicing visualization, breathing and relaxation all through HypnoBirthing.

I know the huge fears and anxieties I had about pregnancy and especially childbirth and I decided I wanted to rewrite my own story and have the best experience imaginable. Never one to run to medication and artificial pain management, the idea of using therapeutic relaxation to manage my labor pains sounded amazing. Plus being in the life coaching space, any holistic method to creating a happy well-adjusted life was exactly up my alley.

What is HypnoBirthing?

HypnoBirthing is a method of pain management used during labor and childbirth but is also super effective for mental health during and after pregnancy. It uses deep therapeutic techniques such as deep relaxation, deep breathing, visualization, affirmations, and self-hypnosis. 

Benefits of HypnoBirthing:

1. Shorter labors

2. Less medication

3. Less reported pain

4. Higher APGAR scores for babies- Score given to babies, measuring their overall health and well being after birth.

5. More frequently spontaneous delivery

6. Reduces Postnatal depression

My Business purpose and goals:

Now I'm so passionate about the birthing method and a huge advocate after my miraculous experience, that I have completed my training to become a HypnoBirthing practitioner and coach. 

Not only am I now helping women to overcome their fears but I’m also helping them and their partners to feel more confident and empowered during the birth process and beyond. I get to help them to use the power of their mind and body. By simply letting go and allowing the natural cocktail of hormones that God has created us with, to flow and bring a beautiful baby into the world naturally. 

There is no guarantee that women won’t feel pain, they won’t need a c-section or be induced for labor or undergo any medical complications but what can be guaranteed is that with this training, they would be so confident and equipped to manage whatever situation they encounter. By re-programming their current beliefs, using deep breathing techniques, deep relaxation, visualization, affirmations and self-hypnosis through Post- Hypnotic Suggestions. It is absolutely amazing what we can do once we believe in ourselves to do it.

The Happy HypnoBirthing Vision:

Unfortunately, the world around us has forced us to create fearful stories and narratives about birth. Movies, other people’s horror stories and the miseducation to women, whose bodies are then not trained to produce the natural hormones it was created to produce from the beginning of time. Fears are created and discouragement which then leads to medical intervention and negative experience during pregnancy and childbirth which unfortunately also follows on into motherhood. Moms who are stressed and frustrated during the birth process are a lot more susceptible to postnatal depression and even worse like suicidal thoughts.

All of this can be prevented by using HypnoBirthing and I am so passionate to help women to do just that. Through Hypnobirthing, I would be able to help women not only trust their bodies and themselves but be able to completely let go and have a wonderful birth experience. 

I would be helping them through deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, breathing as well as giving practical tips and advice to help through their pregnancy, childbirth and new motherhood experience. 

I wish to particularly help women and partners in the military community, locally and internationally through one on one, as well as through online courses to have the best experience of becoming parents. I believe the role of a mother in itself is already challenging enough, if we can influence and manage the birthing experience, then why shouldn't we do just that?

My Funding Goal:

My goal is not only to help women who are able to afford an amazing course like this but I also want to reach women from low- socio-economic backgrounds who are unable to invest in a course like this that takes care of them in a holistic way. In many ways, this course can be expensive and only the most fortunate are able to access these amazing techniques offered by a trained practitioner like me. 

My funding purpose

When you support my project you would help me to expand my services:

1. I would create my own method of Hypnobirthing called Happy Hypnobirthing.

2. I would be able to support the military community wherever my family is posted throughout the world.

3. I would be able to create an online course to be able to access more women around the world who are not able to access these services locally and in person. 

I want to be able to provide my one to one course into an online e-course to help women around the world, no matter what background, economic status, and geographic location. Where possible, I would love to partner with charities and other foundations to provide this course free of charge or at a reduced price to pregnant women from traumatic backgrounds or abusive households. 

The money that I raise will go towards building my business in terms of course creation and building my platform to reach more pregnant women around the world. I would like to invest in a course creation course to build my idea and market it to my ideal clients. I also would like to build my website and build my social media to market my courses and coaching services.

Being a part of the military community if often very tough for partners of the serving person. I have a degree in International Tourism Management that I have not been able to use because of our constant relocation and frequency. I am now changing careers in order to support my family financially and provide a service wherever we go. With a new baby and a student loan, I am currently paying off, I am also seeking part-time employment on the side. It can be quite challenging but I can assure you I am doing all that I can to support my project and goals as well. But your support would be greatly appreciated in whatever way that you can. All money raised would go towards expanding my business to not only help women in my local military community but around the world as well. 

My Book:

I have also written and self-published a book, now available on Amazon Kindle called The Power of HypnoBirthing: My Pregnancy and Empowering Natural Birth Story and How It Can Help You. 

This book would be provided free of charge as a bonus to my course as well as a HypnoBirthign Journal I am working on to accompany the course. In my book, I give a thorough description of my own HypnoBirthing experience as well as things I have learned and continue to practice on my pregnancy and new motherhood journey.

I would love for you to be a part of my dream and project. To do that simply make a donation of your choice to help my business reach mothers and partners around the world. You can also share this page with your friends and family.

The Happy HypnoBirthing Experience feedback:

I can't thank Zanny enough for her valuable help and compassionate personality throughout our sessions. Not only she was able to calm me down and scratch fears off my mind, but she has also made me look forward to a positive and natural birthing experience. I can't believe I can actually block the negative thoughts and stories I'm hearing all the time, thanks to all the exercises, meditation, relaxation techniques and scripts she gave me. I feel very much in control of my pregnancy and that I will be able to make informed decisions when the time comes due.
I'm so grateful to have met Zanny at the right time, her calm demeanor and motherly personality is itself very reassuring.
Definitely recommend her to anyone looking forward to a positive pregnancy and birthing experience. Thanks again, Zanny. God bless you!

I just had my first hypnobirthing session with Zanny and it was such an eye-opening experience. Prior to this, I had no exposure to hypnobirthing and after my short but traumatic labor with my second son, this seemed perfect for me to get into with my third pregnancy. Zanny executed the session online via zoom and she has a way of connecting and engaging so deeply with her clients that it really doesn’t matter whether she’s there physically with you or not. The first session itself was so intense and comprehensive, I wouldn’t have guessed that Zanny had just finished her hypnoBirthing training. She was very professional and confident in delivering the session and she also ensured every step of the way that I understood the concepts clearly as there is a lot of information to take in. I’m very much looking forward to my subsequent sessions and would highly recommend Zanny for your hypnobirthing sessions no matter which part of the world you are in.
