About Nicolle Kasch - Founder
Upon my own initiation into motherhood, a passion for birth was forged. In my pregnancy, like most women, I was very concerned about how difficult and painful birth would be and had no sense of how I’d get through it. The hospital based childbirth classes instilled so much fear in me that I became determined to educate myself further on a different perspective. I found Marie Mongan’s HypnoBirthing book, practiced the method diligently, hired a doula, and had an incredibly calm and empowering hospital birth! I came away from the experience feeling called to share a view of birth that positioned women at the center: as capable, strong, and informed.
I went on to become a certified HypnoBirthing practitioner, birth doula, and have furthered my education by attending various workshops and trainings related to the childbearing season. Prior to my life in all things birth, I obtained degrees in both Sociology and Child Development from Chico State University. In college I also met the love of my life, and together we explored the world before “settling down” to start a family.
I currently live in Lake Forest, California with my husband, our two boys, and our rescue dog Sandy. I love to travel, explore new culinary adventures, sleeping in, snuggling with my family, chocolate, being in nature, yoga, being a mom, and of course all things fertility/pregnancy/birth/postpartum/breastfeeding/attachment parenting!
Fun fact: In high school I backpacked over 100 miles through Death Valley!
