I’ve been teaching HypnoBirthing–Childbirth Education classes in Utah since 2001 and I am certified with the HypnoBirthing Institute of New Hampshire. I’ve been a HypnoBirthing Practitioner Trainer since 2007 and have helped train many of the new HypnoBirthing Practitioners in the US and Canada. I am currently the HypnoBirthing Regional Representitive for Utah and Idaho.
I have five children of my own, all born in the birthing “dark ages” and before I knew anything about HypnoBirthing. Our family consists of three daughters–April, Lyndi and Jillian– and two sons–Dane and the Bald Kid, nearly grown now and living either with their own families or still at home. My youngest son is currently on a LDS mission, serving in Siberia, Russia.
My two oldest daughters have used HypnoBirthing to bring their sweet babies into the world–April, with her twins, nearly four years ago and Lyndi with her daughter (3) and her newborn son.
Before becoming a HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator, I worked as a children’s book author and have 11 published middle grade novels. Currently, I author the daily blog Gracious Rain.
I live with my family in North Orem. Life is wonderful!
