Cynthia Overgard in the Media

Since her first birth in 2005, Cynthia became increasingly committed to educating and empowering women in birthing. In 2007, Cynthia wrote and published her inspiring birth story in various print media — most notably, the internationally-acclaimed Mothering magazine made it the cover story of their annual Pregnancy Special in 2007. Since then, Cynthia continues to publish and be interviewed on a regular basis, presenting evidence-based childbirth research in a compelling and accessible way for today’s expecting parents.
