I found Jackie Mize’s book, Supernatural Childbirth, and discovered that pain free birth was possible. I went on a hunt for pain-free birth stories, and over the course of the next several years, countless women told me their stories of pain-free birth! I became obsessed, reading books like Ina May Gaskin’s Guide to Childbirth, and many others. I moved from fear, anxiety, and confusion, to excitement and fascination about what my body was capable of.
In March of 2013, I had my first all natural, pain-free, joy-filled birth (I’m talking, laughing-at-8-cm kind of birth)! I was so excited, I even blurted out “I’m having fun!” In the middle of active labor. It was so transformational in my life, it lit a passion in me to tell other women just how good birth could be. I certified as a doula, aka birth coach, to support and empower women in labor and had two other pain free births.
Over years of working with women from all different backgrounds and beliefs, I discovered that pain free birth is not only possible, it is teachable. I designed this course with everything I have learned over the last 6 years, jam-packed with practical tools and spiritual insight, on how to have a supernatural, pain free, joy-filled birth.
