The best legacy you can give to your children is a foundation of love, security, and deep connection, nurturing them into healthy, confident individuals who positively impact future generations. - AC

My Story

I'm Alicia Contreras, living in the San Francisco Bay Area, a mother who experienced three natural, vaginal, water births. My journey into childbirth education was inspired by my own birthing experiences and my mother's natural, unmedicated births in Mexico City.

As a HypnoBirthing practitioner and doula, I've encountered many women who shared distressing childbirth experiences. This motivated me to dedicate my practice to helping women have beautiful and empowering childbirth experiences. 

I was further influenced by Dr. Vivian Keeler and Dr. Gerhard Schroth's mentorship and the psychoanalytical aspects of Prenatal Bonding (BA).

My mission is to promote "Transgenerational Harmony" through Childbirth Education, emphasizing the profound impact of prenatal experiences on long-term health and relationships.

Alejandra talks about Alicia's approach


Clients describe Alicia's programs as life-changing, highlighting her ability to create deep connections between parents and their unborn babies. Her methods focus not just on physical preparation for childbirth but also on fostering mental and emotional well-being. Alicia's clients often express amazement at the depth of understanding and connection they achieve with their babies, even before birth. They recount experiences where their babies' responses during prenatal bonding sessions mirrored their post-birth behaviors, reflecting the efficacy of Alicia's techniques.







Why I Do It

The core of Alicia's mission is to empower parents and transform childbirth into a more conscious, joyous, and harmonious journey, with transgenerational harmony as a guiding principle.

I believe the best legacy you can give to your children is a foundation of love, security, and deep connection, nurturing them into healthy, confident individuals who positively impact future generations
