It is always fun to be in touch with like-minded professionals from around the world. Awital Zingg-Bollag is a certified Hypnobirthing Practitioner and teaches childbirth preparation classes in Finland. See her webpage here. Because she is from Switzerland, lived in the States for five years and now lives in Finland, she mostly works with international women.
I love how she describes her journey to this work.
"In an effort to allow other mothers-to-be to become more educated on the miracle of pregnancy and birth, to enable them to critically question the status quo, and to help them achieve their goals of having a calm and peaceful birth, I started my training as a HypnoBirthing® practitioner."
Though her life is busy with a 4- and 2-year-old and 9-month-old, she is in the process of becoming a post-partum doula. HUG training is part of this process. We wish her well in her important efforts to support and encourage women in her corner of the world!
