Dayna Reader shares her birth story of overcoming a fearful, traumatic first birth to have a triumphant waterbirth at home with HypnoBirthing. Although she started HypnoBirthing as a skeptic, Dayna came out the other side a believer in how powerful both hypnosis and her own body is.

Dr. Liz gives tips on what to do with birth affirmations.
