Hey ladies -
   My name is Care Messer and I teach HypnoBirthing in San Diego. I just wanted to let you know about a workshop that is coming to AK this month that is SO WORTH ATTENDING! Anna Verwaal came and spoke to us two weeks ago and it was life changing for all of us. She helped us heal some of our own birth issues etc. and gave us new insights as to how we can help our parents in HypnoBirthing - it was just so amazing! Three of us were practitioners and decided that she has to come back and talk to more of our community. She agreed and will be coming back in Dec. She will be in Alaska for a few different workshops so I thought I would link her page to this email - She focuses on the consciousness of all of us as newborns and what we retain from our birth that shapes our lives. I found out why I am the way I am and had no idea it came as a result of my birth. I have been able to help several moms this week work through stuff from their births as well - it has brought my doula work & HypnoBirthing to a whole other level. Anyway - Anyone that you can get to attend with you - they will be so grateful so I had to pass it on. Let me know if you have any questions - or you can contact Anna, she is very available. You are lucky to have her there for so long. I was born in Fairbanks but have never been back - someday - I am dying to see the northern lights! xoxo - Care
