Hi, my name is Alicia Contreras. I was born and raised in Mexico City.
I’m a happy wife and mother of three amazing boys living in the San Francisco Bay Area. In my life, their births were such a wonderful and empowering experience. I had normal and healthy and not so healthy pregnancies, but I had beautiful all natural, vaginal, water births with the three of them. That was something I always wanted, and I worked for it.
But usually when I share my story, I get to hear very different ones. I listen to women telling me…. “you are so brave,” “how could you do that!?”, “I had such a horrible time!”, “being pregnant was a nightmare,” “Oh no, I had a C-Section,” “I was so afraid in so much pain that I needed an epidural,” “It was so traumatic…”
And I just started asking myself WHY?
After ten years of living the question, researching, experiencing, and working as a woman, wife, mother, HypnoBirthing practitioner, and doula to answer the question, I am ready to bestow all my findings through posts, videos, courses, classes, workshops, and counseling.
I will share everything to help childbirthing become the best experience to everyone.
