Dr. Liz kicks off the month of love with a fantastic interview with Dr. Vivian Keeler, Vice-President of the Institute of HypnoBirthing. Dr. Keeler explains what HypnoBirthing is and what kind of birth a woman and her baby can have. She shares her own journey to becoming a HypnoBirthing instructor, child birth educator, and opening her own Women’s Wellness Center in South Florida that includes HypnoBirthing classes, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, yoga, and doula services.


Dr. Vivian Keeler is a beloved member of the South Florida community. She originally became a HypnoBirthing instructor due to having beautiful births herself and wanting other women to have the opportunity to have the same experience. She took the HypnoBirthing training after already completing her training to be a licensed chiropractor and had her own practice in South Florida. Since that initial training, she’s taught hundreds of women how to HypnoBirth, including Dr. Liz!

Dr. Keeler gives options to find a class or what to do if there’s not a class by you. She also talks about how to find a care provider

that matches the type of birth you want.

Points she makes during the interview are

  • Birth is a natural process.
  • The environment affects how you birth. Bright lights and lots of noise can sometimes slow down the birth process because we’re mammals. Intuitively, we often want to go and hide! Make your birthing environment as peaceful and friendly as possible.
  • It’s important to have a provider you trust during your birth and to prepare for the hospital environment if you’re choosing to have your baby in a hospital. There are excellent providers and OBGYNs. Ask them questions during your appointments and see how they respond. You’ll quickly discover whether or not they truly support natural birth and your ideal birth plan.
  • Listen to your intuition. You should leave appointment with any care provider, whether a doctor or a midwife or a doula, feeling happy and hopeful. If you’re not, check in with your intuition and see if you need to make some changes.
  • Talk with other women who have used your provider, either in person or online.
