Moms Who Inspire: Bryn Huntpalmer

Ever Searched on YouTube for water birth videos?

Reading Time: 8 minutes

The first time I listened to The Birth Hour, a podcast that serves as a place for women to share their childbirth stories, I was immediately struck by how much it made me feel at home. The birth story of the woman who was being interviewed was so captivating, honest and raw, and I felt as if I was hanging onto her every word.

Later that week when I listened to another episode, the same thing happened. I literally couldn’t take my ears away, it was that engrossing. The more episodes I listened to, the more hooked I became. That’s when it hit me, although the women who are interviewed on the podcast are engaging storytellers, the person that makes that space possible is the creator of The Birth Hour, Bryn Huntpalmer.

Bryn lives in Austin, TX and is the mother of three. When she gave birth to her first child four years ago, something in her shifted…

Bryn shared, “I found a strength I never knew I had and discovered a passion for supporting women as they prepare to become mothers. I searched for three and a half years for the way that I could use this passion along with my talents in photography, writing, and connecting people to create something bigger than myself and my local community.”

Bryn with family

You can tell by the way Bryn creates her podcast that bringing stories to her listeners that are real and diverse is very important to her. She interviews women who have had home births, hospital births, water births, cesareans, and vaginal births and encourages them to speak about the memorable, challenging and unexpected moments.

In short, Bryn connects women from all over the world by giving them a place to share one of the most transformative events of their lives: the birth of their children.

Based on what she’s learned along the way, Bryn has created the Know Your Options Childbirth Course and written a new book The First-Time Mom’s Pregnancy Handbook, a week-by-week guide will prepare and empower you during pregnancy and beyond.
