She used my online materials and I didn’t even know she had this beautiful birth using these tools because we weren’t together. And so that means there’s really resources out there, whatever your budget is, that you can look into using hypnotherapy without having to spend the– You know what’s next, hypnotherapy for the anxious dad, who sometimes gets–
Oh please! No no, you know how it is, sometimes the one in the room who’s most calm is the mom giving birth, and the dad’s like “Oh my god! Oh my god!” Sometimes they faint, and end up in the hospital and she’s like, “Can you check on him?” I’m like, ” Okay, one big push. “Okay, can you please check on him? “You ready?” You know? Isn’t it hilarious how that works? Grace, thanks so much for being here, Kathryn, thanks for joining us.
