Professional, informative and FUN!

So far, this podcast is really opening my eyes to a new way of thinking about my pregnancy and birth! I love the Q/A part and that I can submit my own questions. Thank you for this great information. I am eager to hear what’s next. This is a definite go to guide for anyone having a baby.

Wonderful resource!

This podcast is excellent. The hosts are professional, friendly, and so knowledgeable. They are honest and straight talkers and are speaking on issues that are so important. The sound quality is top notch too! This is a MUST resource for anyone expecting a baby or postpartum. Loving it so far, and can’t wait for more.

A MUST FOR EVERY EXPECTING MOTHER!

While I’ve known Cynthia for a while, this was my first glimpse inside her practice and the world of Hypnobirthing.

Initially, being a single male, I didn’t think I was going to get much out of the podcast. I decided to listen because she’s a good friend of mine and at the very least I could give her feedback. 10 minutes into the first episode, I found myself completely drawn into a world I knew nothing about. What is the most important organ in child birth? Why is there such a high number of cesareans? Is it really that unsafe to have an extended labor? As a result, I found myself playing “Down to Birth” on my commute to and from the gym.

Cynthia puts 100% into everything she does and this podcast is no exception. Her depth of knowledge, passion, and purpose to inform women on one of the biggest decisions they’ll ever make regarding their child are only a few reasons every expecting mother should listen to this podcast.

Since my first episode, I’ve already shared it with all my friends who are expecting mothers and were unaware of the choices and potential risks posed to them and their expected child by the typical hospital birth.

She is a remarkable woman and as a friend I continue to be inspired.
