Cynthia Overgard, Founder

Prior to founding HypnoBirthing of Connecticut in 2007, Cynthia Overgard was a corporate executive and Professor of Finance at UConn. She first experienced HypnoBirthing in 2005 when she water-birthed her 8 lb. 14 oz. son, and again in 2009 with her 9 lb. 7 oz. daughter. Both births were natural and lasted only 3 and 5 hours, respectively. The simplicity and beauty of her babies’ births gave her the passion to dedicate herself to educating and supporting others through safer, evidence-based, informed birthing.
Today Cynthia is among the most featured childbirth advocates and experts in global media, with her articles published in print-media in more than 70 countries. Her podcast, Down To Birth, has achieved nearly one million downloads, placing it among the top 1% of all podcasts in the world. Cynthia has taught HypnoBirthing classes to more than two thousand couples from around the US via her live, interactive online classes.
