About Cynthia Overgard

Family Fall 2015

Prior to founding HypnoBirthing of Connecticut in 2007, Cynthia Overgard was a corporate executive and professor of Finance at University of Connecticut. She first experienced HypnoBirthing in 2005, when she birthed her 8 lb. 14 oz. son, and again in 2009 with her 9 lb. 7 oz. daughter. Both births were completely 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 and more informed birthing.
