The Face Behind the Page

I’m Shana, a stay at home mother to 2 wonderful children both born via HypnoBirthing natural births. I’m passionate about natural, intervention free childbirth and I am a (currently non-practicing) Birth Doula.

My 3 year old daughter was a hospital birth with a midwife group that lasted 4 hours from start to finish. I was aiming for a water birth with her but due to HypnoBirthing they didn’t realize I was in transition when I was and the tub wasn’t filled up quick enough so I missed out! With my son we were also planning a hospital water birth at a different hospital but he had other plans for his short 45 minute long labor. I ended up birthing him unassisted on the freeway while my husband was still driving! Both births were remarkable and empowering and absolutely amazing.
