I found Jackie Mize’s book, Supernatural Childbirth, and discovered that pain free birth was indeed possible. I went on a hunt for pain free birth stories, and over the course of the next several years, countless women recounted their personal experiences of pain free birth! I became obsessed, reading books like Ina May Gaskin’s Guide to Childbirth, and many others. I moved out of fear, anxiety, and confusion, into 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-9cm kind of birth)! I was so excited that 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. So, I pursued becoming certified as a doula (a.k.a. birth coach) to support and empower women in labor. Meanwhile, I had two other pain free births.
After several years of working with women from all different backgrounds and beliefs, I discovered that pain free birth is not only possible, it is teachable, hence the creation of Pain Free Birth. Jam-packed with practical tools and spiritual insight on how to have a supernatural, pain free, joy-filled birth, I designed this course from everything I have learned over the last 6 years.
