One Moment In Time

One of the greatest experiences was giving birth to my son.  This was just one moment in time but I would birth (labor) him 100 times if I could just to skip the 9 months of pregnancy all together.

My family and friends called me wonder woman that day and boy did I feel that way.  I had an all natural (yup no drugs, no anesthesia) birth.  It was 18 hours of birthing (labor) that I consider the best part of pregnancy itself.  And the prize, my beautiful baby boy.  I spent 16 1/2 hours at home and arrived at the hospital in just the nic of time.  They didn’t even have time to put in an IV or sign paperwork (whew).  I also realized that day that women are amazing.  It was so empowering to know my body grew that beautiful baby and it knew exactly what it had to do (which is so cool).

So what was my secret, I did 2 things (well I did a lot of things along the way -like eat healthy and exercise) but what helped me that day was my doula and Hypnobabies.  Both gave me the comfort I needed to be wonder woman that day.

You may be wondering what is a doula and what is Hypnobabies?


A Doula (/ˈduːlə/), also known as a birth companion or post-birth supporter, is a nonmedical person who assists a person before, during, or after childbirth, as well as her spouse and family, by providing physical assistance and emotional support. To Find a Doula –> Click Here !


Hypnobabies is a very comprehensive, unique and successful childbirth hypnosis program for creating an easier, more comfortable birth experience.  This program helped me stay calm and trust my body.  Basically it is a home study course, that helps parents choose to easily and naturally prepare for childbirth using the Hypnobabies method of Hypnotic Childbirth, which some might call “hypno-birthing”. It teaches you to use a positive mindset and to change the language and fears you have surrounding child birth (or labor).  To Order or Learn More –> Click Here!
