Stephanie has over 20 years of experience as an E-RYT, PRYT Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance and as a student of meditation. Together they have a casual conversation regarding the benefits, similarities, and differences of hypnobirthing/hypnosis and the Calm Birth Meditation practices. 

What to hear more from Stephanie? She shares her expertise on perinatal yoga in episode 4 of the podcast.

“I like to look at the meditation practice as one that is kinda helping to heal at the cellular level, whereas the hypnosis or the hypnobirthing practice is working to heal at that subconscious and that unconscious level. And, there's benefits to both. And you know, it's really, too, about finding what's gonna connect for you in that moment.”—Stephanie Smith
