An Unforgettable Day!

"Let your tears come.
Let them water your soul."
~ Eileen Mayhew

Currently, the Birth Journey workshop is held once per month on a Saturday. In order to allow more couples to experience this unique childbirth class, I am considering adding a Wednesday/Thursday evening class from 6-9pm each night. If you or someone you know has a due date in November or December, the October class would be perfect. The all day Saturday class will be held on October 22nd and if there's enough interest, we'll add an evening class on October 19th and 20th. The dates for upcoming Saturday workshops are November 19th and December 17th. Classes are held at Babymoon Inn, but are open to anyone regardless of where you are having your baby. Cost is $150 per couple. To register, email me at dianne.hamre@gmail.com. I look forward to meeting all of the beautiful couples that I am privileged to take on this journey!

Excited Big Brother!

Ethan is making sure mommy is comfortable while patiently waiting for his baby brother to be born.


It was way past Ethan's bedtime so he was resting on the couch in the living room of the birth center when his dad ran out and told him it was baby time! He was SO excited as he watched this little body emerge from his mommy. Overcome with emotion, he shouted, "Oh, I love him!" and you can see that love all over his face! What a beautiful way to innocently witness birth; standing beside Daddy while his hands catch your baby brother. Beautiful...just beautiful!

Such a sweet "little" guy!

Mama Lisa worked SO hard to get this little guy out! When he finally arrived, we found out why...he weighed 9lbs 13 oz! He has the sweetest disposition that will blend right into this wonderful family and I'm sure his big brother Elijah can't wait to get him home!

Labor Day 2011!

It was a Labor Day to be celebrated...This little one was in a big hurry to meet her mommy! I arrived at the hospital with Tracy at 2:15pm. She was 1cm dilated and 90% effaced. We walked around for an hour and came back to be checked again...1cm! Jump ahead to 6:42pm when this mama pushes out a beautiful little girl she named Rivers...Happy Labor and Birth Day!

10 centimeters, unmedicated and still smiling!
