Q) Does everyone need to have a telephone interview with Kerry Tuschhoff before being accepted into the Hypnobabies Instructor Training program?
A) Yes. Kerry is our Founder and Director and feels very strongly about training only people whose hearts are dedicated to making a positive impact on their community when it comes to childbirth and parenting issues! As Kerry says, Hypnobabies is not “adding a little hypno-birthing” to your current practice, childbirth class or doula meetings. Hypnobabies goes light-years beyond that and we need professionals with excellent training and personal commitment.
