Lynsi Eastburn Creator of 3Keys® HypnoFertility

Lynsi Eastburn

As the creator of HypnoFertility, Lynsi is the world’s established expert in the field of hypnosis to promote fertility. She began professionally using hypnosis to facilitate pregnancy before anyone else had actively considered or pursued its benefits, when there was no information about it in books, when nothing could be found on the internet. Lynsi then went on to institute the first certification program for therapists which she has taught worldwide.

The author of three books on the subject, Lynsi personally receives patient referrals from several of the top fertility clinics in the United States. Lynsi frequently works with the most difficult cases. Patients are referred to her when other practitioners have run out of options, when medical treatments or repeated protocols that should work do not.

Lynsi has been featured in national and international media including television news, talk shows, podcasts, radio and print, and her work is the basis of ongoing research.

Her innovative style effectively blends the worlds of science and spirit (also referred to as logic and creativity or left and right brain). She holds a master’s degree in Depth Psychology and is a board-certified hypnotherapist and instructor. Lynsi is what is known as an intuitive empath. For more than 25 years, she has been a professional practitioner and instructor in the healing arts, and she’s well-versed in spiritual practices including Usui Reiki, Angelic Reiki, color healing, crystal enhancement, mindfulness, and meditation.

Lynsi combines her insights and intuitions with a biopsychosocial approach to hypnotherapy. She has found that biological, psychological, and social factors make up the whole person; therefore, all must be considered to effectively support each one. Lynsi supports a holistic, inclusive integration of science and spirit because she understands they are not mutually exclusive. Too much emphasis on one or the other can result in varying levels of imbalance which can, in turn, exacerbate the struggles of infertility. Her comprehensive background contributes to her inspired insights and has enabled her to become finely tuned in the practice of subconscious communication and mind-body balancing.

Lynsi’s clients affectionately refer to her as a spiritual midwife, and the “baby whisperer” or “spirit baby whisperer,” because of her enigmatic ability to help them achieve success—often when they have been told it’s impossible, often when she is their last hope.

Lynsi believes that if you feel a calling to have a baby there is a reason for it. She has said so from the very beginning of HypnoFertility; she has known it all her life. It may not be rational, logical, or medically sound, but there is a reason for this calling, a purpose. Lynsi has been connected to spirit babies for many years and has seen some miraculous happenings. She delves into some of these experiences in her second book, The 3 Keys to Conception—Pregnancy Against All Odds, and it is the heart of her third book, Waiting in the Wings.

Hayley Middleton Executive Director & HypnoBirth Specialist

I’m Hayley. I am the Executive Director of HypnoFertility International and the Eastburn Hypnotherapy Institute & Center. I am also a Certified Hypnotist and 3Keys® Certified HypnoFertilitist. I am the Director of the HypnoBirth Division of HypnoFertility International, and the co-creator of the 3Keys® HypnoBirth certification program. I work with clients, and also train practitioners, to utilize genuine hypnosis tools and techniques to facilitate the most effective hypnobirth possible.

I first discovered the benefits of hypnosis in 2010, when I needed to ease my own stress and anxiety due to having night terrors and sleep issues, and I’ve continued to work with hypnosis ever since. It wasn’t until I started my own fertility journey in 2017, however, that I started to delve much deeper into hypnotherapy.

Once I decided I wanted to be pregnant, and it didn’t happen immediately, I found my thoughts becoming more and more consumed with trying for a baby. Soon it was all I could think about. The added stress from this was actually working against me conceiving and I realized I needed to change my mindset. I recalled how much hypnosis had helped me in the past, and I knew it was just what I needed.

I began a daily practice of self-hypnosis, and it wasn’t long before I had the positive pregnancy test I so desired. This is when I really realized the power of hypnosis and its incredible impact on the mind-body connection! I continued my hypnosis practice throughout my pregnancy and also used it for the birth of my son and, eventually, my daughter. It was so amazing and empowering.

I even had a couple of the nurses at Holly’s birth thank me for allowing them to witness such a beautiful, calm, hypnotic birth. My midwife told me that, of all the hundreds of babies she had ever delivered, she would never forget Holly’s birth as it was so incredibly serene.

Immediately following my son’s birth, I knew my purpose was to empower women on their journey to motherhood—from preconception to conception, pregnancy, birth and beyond. This is when I began my formal training in hypnotherapy, hypnobirthing, and hypnofertility. Interestingly, during my HypnoFertility® training I conceived my second child. I couldn’t believe how easily it happened!

By the time my daughter was born I’d earned multiple certifications and had my own private practice. I know the benefits of hypnosis for both fertility and birth firsthand. Thanks to hypnosis I have two beautiful children and am able to help others to realize their baby dreams as well!
