Urban Village Birth Services

A certified natural birth educator and doula with the Academy of Husband Coached Childbirth, I entered into the Doulas of North America (DONA) Birth Doula program for an international doula training, while providing labor support to my many clients. More recently, I decided to continue my offerings to the community and took the next step and entered into a midwifery program focused on becoming a homebirth midwife.

I have gained a deep compassion through my own childbirth journeys about the strength of a laboring woman and her support systems and their impact on the birth of a child. Being able to support families through their time of pregnancy, labor and birth and breastfeeding continually renews my belief in the natural circle of life. I am continually on a learning path to help enhance my ability to provide a wide array of support including; birth education, birth doula support and postpartum care services, along with being and independent product consultant promoting natural health and healing with certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG) essential oils.

I bring years of knowledge and understanding with a strong but gentle touch to the families I serve. I offer knowledge and support for all types of families and situations. My passion is to help support families in their choices for their births, empower them to have voices in their care and nurture them in their birth journeys.

Postpartum Happiness

A lot of mother’s struggle with the transition and often don’t talk about it due to embarrassment and shame. It doesn’t have to be this way. You can feel joy about yourself, your baby, and your relationships. You can find yourself again.
I can help because I understand what you’re going through. I struggled with postpartum depression and understand the sadness, the isolation, and the feeling of being blindsided by its hold on you. My mission is to help mothers struggling with any type of prenatal or postpartum adjustment and share my wisdom, strength, and hope.

HypnoBirthing Orange County

Nicolle Kasch is the owner of HypnoBirthing Orange County, offering HypnoBirthing® childbirth education classes and birth doula services. Mongan Method HypnoBirthing® is a simple, straightforward program, thoughtfully developed over the years to remind mothers of the simplicity of birth itself. Just as the majority of birthing women do not need interventions and procedures for safe and healthy birth, they do not need a complex set of exercises and scripts to prepare themselves for peaceful, calm and comfortable birthing. The birthing body and the baby know just what to do. Mongan Method HypnoBirthing® is designed to teach women to trust in Nature’s way of birth and to relax and let their bodies do what is needed. By practicing a few key techniques, mothers program their minds and condition their bodies to birth easily.

Nicolle began birth doula work as an extension of her HypnoBirthing expertise, and her ultimate goal is to ensure that every family has a positive and empowering birth experience; whatever that looks like to them. She is passionate about making birth a joyous occasion for EVERYONE involved! Birth companions are often so overlooked when their partner is pregnant, but she always prioritizes their wellbeing and vital role – whether that’s being with mom so the partner can eat or nap, getting them more involved in comfort measures, or snapping photos so they can enjoy witnessing their baby’s birth!
