Episode 194: The Connection Between Birth and Menopause (And How Hypnosis Helped Dr. Toni Through Both)

In this new episode, Dr. Toni shares a new insight about the connection between birth and menopause in her experience. How we feel about birth and menopause may be linked by the messages we are programmed with from a young age about our bodies, as well as how we cope and manage stress.
