Our hope is that being part of our tribe you will learn to leave the shame, judgement and guilt behind and grow into confidence regarding who you truly are, not just the separate parts or roles that you play in life but as the WHOLE you.

Testimonials
Brittany Baxter

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.

Katie Fredenburg

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!

Adriana Rosales

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.

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.

Educating is NOT Shaming

I was never told that placenta previa was a common occurrence after a c-section for future pregnancies, or that I would have pain from scar tissue, or that secondary infertility was a risk. As I was wheeled in for my first c-section I was not informed that finding a VBAC supportive provider would be a challenge and only the most persistent person could overcome the obstacle. Or that many hospitals won’t even allow a mother to attempt a VBAC. Or that my baby was at risk for higher rates of adverse health effects in the future. No, as I was wheeled back for my non emergent, intervention created c-section I was simply told “it’s fine honey, we do these all the time, it’s standard"
