The amazing, Kristin Strom. Kristin is the mother of 2, her son Solar is 5 and her daughter Phoenix is 3. With Kristin's first pregnancy she followed all of her doctor's advice and thought that a typical natural hospital birth was exactly what she wanted. However after thinking about her pitocin, epidural and an ultimate cesarean she chose differently for her second birth. Kristin stumbled upon a doula who led her to a hospital midwifery group. Her daughter was born vaginally without any interventions, a huge triumph after being told that her body was too small to birth her large babies. Kristin is now a doula, a Personal Trainer and a Pilates Instructor. She so gracefully reminded us during her session that there is a secret in our society, it's not that birth is too painful, it's that women are strong.
