Veronika has always been interested in how the mind works, how we can influence our minds, and how the mind effects our bodies, our beliefs, and our behaviors. After finishing a Bachelor I Psychology, Veronika got pregnant with her first child and was introduced to Hypnobirthing for the first time. While preparing for her birth with Hypnobirthing, she learned more about the mind-body connection, what happens in the body during labour and birth, and how, as expecting parents, we can benefit this natural process by working with our minds and our bodies, educating ourselves, and making informed decisions. This is also when her passion for childbirth really kicked off.
After having experienced two beautiful and empowering births herself, she decided to start teaching Hypnobirthing herself, with the goal to provide more parents with education and tools that can help them prepare for and influence their own birth experiences in a positive manner.
Veronika does not want to limit herself to helping parents prepare for birth, she wants to be able to offer her continuous support and guidance on this special journey through pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond. So she decided to deep dive further into the birth world and started studying to be a doula. She is now a doula in training, and offers her support as such to expecting parents.
Veronika and Kasia first met when Veronika during her second pregnancy started attending Kasia’s prenatal yoga classes. They soon discovered they have a common passion for childbirth and specifically for Hypnobirthing.
Here is where you can read more about Veronika and what she does.
