Reclaim Your Power

“Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear.” – Jane Weideman


Most of us have been misled about physiologic birth our entire lives. Evidence has supported the fact that severe pain is not an inherent part of childbirth for hundreds, even thousands of years, and yet society and medical professionals continue to perpetuate this myth. With proper education and preparation, we can unlearn these myths and return to a birth experience that more closely mirrors the one nature intended. Does a calm, gentle birth always mean an unmedicated vaginal delivery? Of course not. HypnoBirthing classes and doula support can make a significant difference in the outcome and satisfaction level for your birth even if you need an induction, medication, cesarean, or another medically necessary intervention. Being prepared, empowered, and supported simply means you remain calm regardless of what transpires, which is always better for baby!

Meet Nicolle Kasch

When I became pregnant with my first child, I knew I was finally fulfilling my destiny to become a mother. What I didn’t anticipate was the passion for gentle birthing that followed!


Like most women, I was very concerned about how difficult and painful birth would be and had no sense of how I’d get through it. The hospital based childbirth classes instilled so much more fear in me that I became determined to educate myself further on normal birth – I found Marie Mongan’s HypnoBirthing book, practiced diligently, hired a doula, and had an incredibly calm and empowering unmedicated hospital birth! During the months that followed this blessed event, I was consumed with our birth story and wanted to share my experience with as many women as I could. Becoming a HypnoBirthing® practitioner was born from this passion, and there is nothing I love more than helping Orange County couples achieve their goal of a calm, gentle birth.
