Mother gives birth on living room floor.
 These are actually dear friends of mine, and they did an awesome job bringing their baby boy into the world! I love that education gave this daddy the understanding that birth was not something that was dangerous and needed to be feared, rather, it is a natural, normal process of the body when mom and baby are both in a healthy state. Because of this, he was able to be a fantastic support to his wife as she powerfully gave birth on baby's terms. Their story that was the catalyst that pushed me to certify as a doula and HypnoBirthing Instructor...which eventually morphed into dropping the HypnoBirthing practice and writing the course material for How to Birth like a Rock Star. Definitely inspiring!
