The co-founders of HBT are passionate educators and mothers with unique birth and parenting experiences. Our goal is to empower families to be the authority of their life, not just their birth. We have witnessed too many families hand over their autonomy and power during the birth experience; that lack of confidence carries into parenthood. We coach and empower families to ask the right questions, to confidently trust their intuition, and to shed the guilt and judgment pushed on them by soceity. Confidence in parenthood starts during pregnancy and birth.

Crystal and Michaela are both so great. They make you feel confident as a woman. Even though I chose a c-section, I was at one time thinking about vbac. They gave me some wonderful information and so much encouragement. If you're ever needing advice these are your two gals to go to.

Attending Honest Talk’s Weekend was one of the best decisions I have ever made! It has changed my life and that is no exaggeration! When I attended I was a brand new stay at home mom. I was feeling low, lonely and like I had lost my spark. Honest Talk helped me find that spark again. Being a military spouse, I have had a lot of various jobs but nothing that I was passionate about. After connecting with the  Honest Talk community, I knew that I was made to serve women and moms who are going through the same struggle I was. I made so many friends and connections but most importantly, I found myself again! The work you guys are doing is so important and you are impacting so many women’s lives!

I highly recommend Honest Talk International as a genuine service and support system for women wanting community, & resources for any stage or phase of life. I have been able to connect with exceptional women through Honest Talk. Michaela and Crystal are women that I both admire and support as they are at the forefront of stirring up conversations needed with in a “mom” community that currently does not exist.

Difference of Birth Coach & Birth Doula

Doula and birth coach - these terms are often used interchangeably as both provide more or less the same services. Both are trained and receive a qualification to provide physical and emotional support as well as education to the birth mother during pregnancy, labor and after birth.

Lotus Birth Overview: Advantages and Disadvantages

A lotus birth leaves the umbilical cord attached to the placenta after the mother has delivered it and until it dries out and falls off naturally. Research also suggests that leaving the cord attached for even longer may have additional benefits, therefore the rise in popularity of the lotus birth.
