Dear Kristin,

I read and listened to everything in your Birthing Through Hypnosis class while I was pregnant. Thanks again for these techniques. The balloon breathing and top-down breath were instrumental in my labor and birth. I definitely used the vacation visualization with the help of four photos from our honeymoon and had bits of the honeymoon script my husband and I created running through my mind between 6 and 9 cm dilated.

We are so proud to announce that Baby B was born Wednesday 8/15 at 7:30am at UCSF Medical Center, one day before my due date. After 26 hours of a wonderful labor at home with our midwives, doula and my cousin, Baby B was born naturally and unmedicated just 45 minutes after our arrival at the hospital. He is completely healthy, alert and now breastfeeding. He is 6lbs 15.8 ounces and 19 inches long. He has dark sandy blonde hair (like his parents) and it looks like he’ll have blue eyes.

Our love,
E & C
