Randi’s Second Birth: A surprise home birth without fear!

April 21, 2014

This story is absolutely inspiring and exciting, and reminds me a lot of my own surprise home hypno-birth. This baby girl definitely knew when and were she wanted to be born! Laura and I chose the name Teagan Jade for a few reasons. It was a round table discussion of names with my parents and […]

Sarah actually didn’t take the Hypnobirthing classes, but she did practice with the relaxation recordings at home. She was a birthing warrior! This sweet baby girl weighed in at almost 10 lbs! (We love big, squishy, healthy babies here at Hypnobirthing Utah!) During my pregnancy with Rowan I felt much different than when I was […]

Wednesday, March 19th 6:23 AM: After a restless night of what I thought were just normal cramps I woke up to a little trickle of water and ran to the bathroom where my water burst. Josh was still in bed so I called out to him “We’re having a baby!” And then I started shaking uncontrollably […]

Arvilla had an incredibly powerful hypnobirth. She birthed without fear even during a scary situation (discovering the baby was breech at the last second). I love that Arvilla found her voice during this birth and learned how strong she truly is.  I call my husband into the bathroom. The pee stick was positive we were […]

Here’s a bit of my history, before I get to the birth! This is my 4th baby, my previous 3 were all born at home. I had a lot of fears about having another baby and after getting pregnant I very seriously considered having an elective c-section. Then I started looking into hypnobirthing. I felt […]

Lindsey and Michael took my HypnoBirthing classes and finished the Daddy Doula Training the day before their baby was born!

My favorite part is where he says Lindsey “bellowed just a bit” when she […]

This is a really fun birth story. Mom birthed so quickly the doctor didn’t make it. My favorite part is the nurses telling her to hold her breath and push, while mom ignores them and breathes her baby down and out in 3 minutes!  Thinking back it all really started Thursday August 29th.  I went […]
