About Krist’l

Hi, I am Krist’l D’haene from Belgium. I am a holistic midwife/doula, yoga and Ayurveda practitioner/teacher and biodynamic craniosacral therapist.

During pregnancy, birth, postpartum and early parenting I love mothering the mother, the father/partner and the baby with floor/water yoga, prenatal massage, child birth education, hypnobirthing, doula at birth, craniosacral therapy, baby massage, healing post-partum care and hormone yoga therapy. I am fascinated by traditional postpartum practices and keep exploring Ayurvedic food and lifestyle and Thai traditional practices. I live in SE Asia since 1996 in Laos, Cambodia and Thailand and prior to this, I spent 10 years in various African countries. I approach birth as a totally natural event, as I have witnessed in all these cultures. I resource in nature, with music and dance. Language is the door to another culture, which I find totally fascinating. I speak Dutch, French, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese and somehow Thai, Lao and Khmer too. www.kristldhaene.com.

I am currently based in Bangkok. I gave birth to my son in Bangkok in 2002. As an expat mom, far away from family and friends, I deeply missed support. Therefore, I set up my private practice Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond, providing holistic support to pregnant couples from conception into parenting. I am 62 now and I am very interested in menopause/andropause and how we can manage this time at best with Ayurveda food and lifestyle and hormone yoga therapy.

Feel free to contact me and find out how I can help you. I might speak your language!

About Mucha Mama

Mucha Mama Hypnobirting cursussen

Hypnobirthing is hypnotherapy applied to pregnancy and birth. With hypnobirthing you explore your unconscious responses to pregnancy and birth, how they affect you and what you can do to change your experience into a more fulfilling one. Your partner takes the course with you.

I am delighted to bring hypnobirthing as part of the holistic approach of preparing yourself for motherhood. Hypnobirthing focuses on the unconscious, psychological and emotional aspects, while childbirth education and pregnancy yoga focus more on the physical and spiritual aspects.

Frequently asked questions

Why hypnobirthing?

Surely you have heard stories about pregnancy and birth, you have seen movies or you read books, your mother gave birth to you, or you gave birth already. All these imprints are stored in your subconscious mind and they define your experience, behaviour, attitudes and the way you live your life today. Hypnobirthing allows you to consciously explore your unconscious fears and anxieties and become aware of them. Once you are aware, you can than consciously transform these imprints into more happy and fulfilling ones using specific techniques and tools. The result is increased confidence and self-awareness. As if you reprogram your mind for positive experiences instead of the usual negative ones.

What happens in a hypnobirthing session?

I trained with Mucha Mama in the Netherlands. You subscribe online and receive all preparation materials to read and listen to with the instructions to work at your own pace. The Hypnobirthing audio sessions are relaxing and allow you to explore your mental images. Once you are familiar with the exercises, you and your partner join the hypnobirthing class with few other couples or you might take a private class. We will practice hypnotherapy techniques/tools such as breathing, direct and indirect suggestions, visualizations, anchors, metaphors and fear release exercises.

At how many weeks of pregnancy shall I start?

Somewhere in the second trimester. The earlier you start, the more you can benefit from the exercises long before you give birth.

How long it lasts?

How long to see benefits?

Preparing with hypnobirthing will not only help you during labour and birth but surely also in other areas of life for many years to come. For myself, taking the training has long-life effects as I have become very aware of my mind patterns, habits and attitudes and I know now how I can change the negative ones in more fulfilling ones.
