For more than 25 years, HypnoBirthing® has been the most complete childbirth course for parents who want to see their babies born in a calm and loving way.


With the original HypnoBirthing® method, we provide techniques for applying the correct relaxation and breathing techniques. The mother is able to reduce anxiety and stress during the birth process, by remaining fully aware and in control. She will learn to trust her body, to follow the womb muscles, in short, she will learn to let Mother Nature do what it is meant to do.


In this complete childbirth course, the father is also prepared for his duties during the birth process. HypnoBirthing® teaches him to support, care for and partner with his family. This makes the mother feel safe.

HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy as it is a technique. It is a rewarding, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm, and joy.

When a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally, and spiritually, she can experience that sort of joy. Giving birth to her baby in an easier, more comfortable, and often even pain-free manner.

Through a well-thought-out program of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualization, affirmations, and education, HypnoBirthing® returns to a woman the art of birthing in a way that allows her to summon her natural birthing instincts and to birth her baby in safety and with ease.

About me

About me

Stefanie Gatto Herrera

My name is Stefanie Gatto Herrera. I am originally from Germany, but have been living in Rotterdam since 2013 with my Chilean husband and my son Nicolas. He was born in 2019 and his arrival has changed my life.

Before I was pregnant and during my pregnancy, I heard a lot of traumatic and negative birth stories. In my opinion birth shouldn't be a painful or fearful experience. I came across a different childbirth course: HypnoBirthing. It helped me to empower myself and take responsibility back in giving birth.

I experienced such an incredible birth that I decided I really want to share this knowledge and give other women the opportunity to undergo the miracle of a natural birth. So, in 2019,  I became an official Hypnobirthing instructor. 

I want women to be empowered, so that they can realize they have freedom of choice and can find the confidence in themselves and in their bodies. I also want to show partners how they can give substance to their supporting role. When women and their partner are well prepared, the optimal conditions are created for a quiet, safe and gentle birth. My goal is to let as many parents and babies experience this as possible.

As an expat in a country with a different language, the birthing system is challenging. For me, it was difficult to find a suitable HypnoBirthing course in English. So, I am glad to offer this childbirth class now in English, but also in German on request.

The expectation is often that being pregnant is a wonderful period in which you feel great, enjoy all the changes in your body and are proud of your growing belly. But all those changes in your body and your life can also have a negative impact on you. Having a child is an emotional event that can bring out all kinds of things that you may not have been aware of before. Perhaps you find it difficult to discuss this in your own environment or have done so, but do you notice that you mainly receive well-intentioned advice that does not actually help you? Then pregnancy coaching can help you. Inflow offers individual support during your pregnancy to help you to enjoy this special time of your life. To know if it suits you, we will have a free introduction meeting for about 30 minutes to discuss everything that is important for you.

Pregnancy Support

Pregnancy coaching is a form of individual guidance during your pregnancy, which can supplement (but certainly not replace) the guidance of your obstetrician or gynecologist. There is extra time and space to discuss what you find difficult during your pregnancy and what you are looking for support with.


Individual Birth Preparation

With individual birth preparation, we will discuss what is important for you and how you see your upcoming birth. I will help you to know how to reach it and to prepare for your birth step by step.


Free Introduction Meeting

During the introduction meeting, we will discuss your situation, what you experience during your pregnancy and what you would like to change.

We also estimate how many coaching sessions and what you need to achieve your goal.

You can decide for yourself whether you prefer to meet face-to-face or online via Zoom.
