Chrysti Lauter

CHT, HBCE, Birth Doula

Chrysti is a certified hypnotist and DONA trained birth doula.  Her life’s passion is to serve women during the deeply personal transition into motherhood and the journey that follows.  There are few naturally occurring opportunities in life that allow a woman to transform herself completely.  Hypnosis allows you to recognize and cultivate your inner power, allowing you to seize the opportunity and become the woman and the mother you want to be.  Chrysti feels so honored to be able to hold space for such moments of transformation as a birth worker alongside a group of wise and talented women.  Her newest certification additions include Hypnobirthing childbirth educator and Hypnomothering practitioner.  This skill set allows Chrysti to teach women how to reconnect and trust their body’s natural ability to birth their babies in a calm, peaceful, and comfortable manner and provides tools for a more gentle transition into motherhood.
