My name is Jacqueline Hyland. I am a Certified Nurse Midwife and a Woman’s Health Nurse Practitioner. Before I became a CNM and a WHNP I was a labor and delivery nurse for ten years. I have worked with well over a thousand women giving birth during my career. I can say that, without a doubt, hypnobirthing is absolutely the best way to give birth without medication. The women I have worked with are in complete control and deliver in a quiet and peaceful manner. They are extremely well prepared and ready for the birth. They know what they want and achieve their goals in far greater number than any other manner of giving birth. I highly recommend Jolene Shields and hypnobirthing in general for your birth. It will be a great experience.
