Read testimonials from Jolene’s clients and their outcomes and improvements with hypnosis
As an LCSW BCD, I have known and worked with Jolene since she stated in this field. She is an outstanding practioner. Working with her was a privilege!!Shirley M.
Amazing! My labor experience with this child was so much easier than my previous experience with my first child. I think my success with HypnoBirthing came after months of practice at home.
A few points worth noting:
1- I was able to turn my breech baby into the vertex position
2- I imagined a 7lb baby and that’s what I got.
3- I was so relaxed even when I was dilated to 8-10cm. I thought perhaps I was still at 4-5 cm.
4- I had a great birthing companion
5- I didn’t tear this time, which made for a very easy recovery
6- My baby latched on so well following the delivery, she is very content as if she had a good experience too.
Thank you Jolene for your very helpful and educational class, and especially for your confidence in all women.
I am out of pain, sleeping better and have lost 27 pounds. I even used hypnosis at my dentist office as was able to save an hour without having to have shots or gas.Linda G.
Self-hypnosis has helped me greatly with reducing the stress that was making my IBS condition and my pain worse. For me stress increased my pain and pain increased my stress causing a vicious cycle that hypnosis was very effective in breaking.Becky C.
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.My name is Jacqueline Hyland. I am a Certified Nurse Midwife and a Woman’s Health Nurse Practitioner.

Thank you for training Archie and I in Hypnobirthing. I was very happy with the result. It allowed me to be relaxed and confident during labor, which helped me comfortably avoid medication which steadily progressing the whole time. Using your (Jolene’s) 60 Second Progressive Muscle Relaxation script during uterine surges was the most helpful technique for me. I also feel that the daily practice I had done at home with the CD’s during the weeks and months prior was very helpful. I was very calmed as well by having soothing music playing in my room at the hospital all during labor and birth. Thank you so much,Grace
I came in for smoking cessation in December of 2013 and I haven’t’ smoked since. I never properly expressed my gratitude. I know a big part of stopping is the smoker really wanting it. With that said, you “unBrain” washed me and I appreciate it. Now that I have found you again, I am going to refer to you like crazy.Bob
Jolene’s work with my patients has been extremely helpful and therapeutic. She has given them wonderful tools to cope with chronic, often unbearable pain, disabling anxiety and panic, and preparation for potentially traumatic surgical procedures. Her work has been an excellent complement to biological and psychosocial psychiatric interventions that my patients are concurrently receiving. I would highly recommend her approach to anyone who could benefit from deep relaxation and mindfulness practice.Carmelia Javellana M.D.
I had my baby in January using the HypnoBirthing techniques. It was so exciting to be able to have a baby naturally (after two previous births). I was so surprised when the midwife told me I was dilated to 10cm, I felt like I was only having cramps. I felt so much better after and I used the techniques you taught us, to help me cope with stress and sleep better. The class was so inspiring and helpful. I think it is so wonderful to learn what our minds and bodies can do.
Thank you so much, Jolene.
The whole hypnosis process has turned my life around. The pain and discouragement no longer control my life; I feel very empowered. I have energy I never knew existed. I feel that an almost intangible shield keeps the negative parts of life from overpowering me. There is a lot more positive self-talk going on. I am perceiving daily events differently. I feel more secure in knowing I have tools to work with as I make efforts to manage the difficult parts of like.Sherrie B.
Hypnosis has carried over into all areas of my life. TMJ is not only a physical ailment for me, but causes emotional stress. Hypnosis has helped me have control over it, something I did not have before. I have learned so much about the mind/body connection, this information has been vital to my healing. I feel I have learned skills for life.Melanie B.

I think this is the best thing I’ve ever done for my weight loss and my health. I’m very motivated.Valoree A.
My surgery went very well yesterday and, as you said in the session, I am surprised at how fast and how well I am recovering. The session and the CD were incredibly helpful and I believe they made a big difference. I am continuing to listen to the CD and it is a wonderful comfort.Mike
We got to the hospital at 4:00 AM at 3 cm dilated and I had the baby in the bath tub (quite unexpectedly, where I had been laboring for maybe 5 minutes) at 5:37 AM. I don’t know if I told you but during the last hypnosis session, I had chosen to labor for two hours and it totally happened!
The doctor didn’t even make it in! I breathed down three or four times and out she came. Zero pain. It was truly incredible.
Two weeks after our baby girl was born I was still going over the experience in my head a couple times a day, it was so amazing!
Thank you so much for helping us have an unforgettable birthing experience.Erin
I am an Executive Interview and Job Promotion coach. I refer All my people to Jolene. I can tell a big difference between those who Have seen her and those who haven’t. Those who have are able to relax, be more focused, prepare more effective and efficiently and recall information under pressure. Those who haven’t seem stuck in their old wars and most likely stuck in their old jobs.Richard
