The course creator and teacher is
Tracy Barrett Adams,

Clinical Hypnotherapist & Doula


A third of Tracy’s practice is devoted to hypnosis for fertility, childbirth, and new parenthood. A mother of four and birth assistant (doula), Tracy is intimately familiar with the real-world challenges of labor and birth, and she’s thoroughly committed to equipping parents to move through challenges with calm and confidence. When not working with pregnancy related issues, Tracy specializes in working with chronic pain and migraine, insomnia and anxiety. Tracy teaches the Integrative Medical Hypnosis practitioner certificiation course for the International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapy.

"...even though Tracy was not present at the birth, she was certainly an essential part of the team as our birth instructor. We enjoyed the classes and found the hypno exercises very useful. The exercises are not just useful for the birth but I used them to help me sleep and find comfort during the last weeks of the pregnancy and am using them all the time now to help me get to sleep immediately whenever I get a chance to sleep with a newborn. My husband uses them too! 

Tracy is a great instructor."
