Your teachers

For years Benita and Yvonne have focussed on making HypnoBirthing better known in the Netherlands and creating a positive environment for practitioners to work together and increase knowledge and expertise. In 2014 they had the privilege of welcoming Marie Mongan in the Netherlands. A huge wish was granted when Marie Mongan asked them to become Faculty Members. They thank her for the trust in them and for being allowed to teach in Dutch.

Yvonne Baars has worked as a coach since 2000 for people with all sorts of questions related to life and development within the field of social services. The birth of her eldest daughter in 2005 caused a shift in her career to coaching families during pregnancy, preparation for birth and infancy. She is a devoted and experienced antenatal educator, hypnotherapist, trainer, coach, pregnancy yoga teacher, baby massage instructor and Dunstan Babylanguage trainer. During groupcourses as well as during individual hypnotherapy sessions, she always works from the heart in order to offer parents what they need to bring out the best in themselves and for their baby. She views pregnancy as a period of enormous growth and transformation potential. Time and time again she observes how the energy of the growing baby invites parents to make personal developments and to let go of what is no longer needed.  They thus create the best circumstances and a warm welcome for their baby. It is Yvonne’s mission to help as many babies as possible make a soft landing in their brandnew lives. She gives the HypnoBirthing Practitioner Training with much enthusiasm, knowing that the more practitioners teach the HypnoBirthing course, the larger the ripple effect will be for parents and babies.

Yvonne is married, has 2 daughters and lives in Arnhem, the Netherlands.

Benita Verheem has supported mothers (to be) since 2001 as a breastfeeding consultant, doula and hypnotherapist. In 2011 she crossed paths with HypnoBirthing and immediately recognised the enormous added value of helping parents find their strength during pregnancy, teaching them their rights and how to maintain control and above all the power of relaxation. Benita’s surplus is that she gets to see theory being put into practice each time she is invited to be at a birth. She is happy to have seen the birthing environment shift for the better, both at home as well as in hospitals, and dares to claim that HypnoBirthing has worked miracles for countless of couples as well as for their care providers.

And she is not the only HypnoBirthing adept who is enthusiastic about a course for parents that is both incredibly practical as well extensively informative. A continuous flow of people, both birth professionals as well as people from other professions, turn to Yvonne and Benita to teach them how to become a HypnoBirthing practitioner. A really great development!

Benita lives with her husband, 4 children and dog in Breukelen, the Netherlands.

Teaching together

Benita and Yvonne choose to give this training together so that one of them is always available for personal attention if needed. This training is deemed by many to be life-changing, both on a personal as well as on a professional level. Benita and Yvonne ensure a safe and honest learning environment allowing everyone to become inspired as having a couple of fabulous days.
