About Bailey Gaddis, C.Ht, HBCE

Bailey Gaddis

I am the the owner of Your Serene Life, co-founder of Birth Transformed, and a founding member of the Ojai Valley Birth Collective. In addition, I’m the author of Feng Shui Mommy: Creating Balance and Harmony for Blissful Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Motherhood and a contributor to Working Mother, Pregnancy and Newborn, Disney’s Babble, the Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, Redbook, and other publications, where I primarily write about pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood.

My work as a childbirth preparation educator (trained in HypnoBirthing), birth doula, hypnotherapist, HypnoMothering practitioner, and past egg donor and surrogacy coordinator has given me the privilege of supporting thousands of woman who all experienced pregnancy and childbirth in unique ways, which allowed me to develop a deep respect and knowledge of the fluidity of the journey into motherhood.

I also have the privilege of volunteering for the Nan Tolbert Center’s Parent Care program where I offer in-home support for families of new babies who are in need of supplemental care. In addition, I volunteer my hypnotherapy services at the cancer resource center Ojai Cares.

I live every day in complete awe of the creation, birth, and nurturing of new life, and considers the mother-baby bond the pinnacle of magic – I’m reminded of this messy-wonderful magic daily as I mother my son Hudson, age 4.

Background

I embarked on my immersion in the world of mind-body connections, pregnancy, and birthing when I began working with the Egg Donor and Surrogacy Agency, Alternative Conceptions, owned by Southern California Reproductive Center. In my years working as an Egg Donor and Surrogacy coordinator I developed a deep respect and love for the miracle of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood. I have a true understanding of the numerous and miraculous ways a family can be created, and the impassioned journey many travel to reach that goal.

After I became pregnant, I experienced first-hand the multitude of decisions, information, and opinions that abounded in the pregnancy, birthing, and parenting universe. My inner compass and intuition quickly led me to the birth preparation philosophy of HypnoBirthing® The Mongan Method. I felt at home in this peaceful, supportive, and spiritual method and soon had the desire to pass this message on to fellow soon-to-be parents. I became a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner soon after the birth of my son and have been teaching this transformative method of childbirth ever since.

Through my HypnoBirthing® classes, I discovered a passion for providing Birth Doula services and have been blessed to provide comprehensive support to soon-be-parents throughout early birthing preparation, up to, and after, the arrival of their new life.

I have always strived to support individuals and families in their pursuit of peace, success, and bliss.
