About Us

Yohanna is the founder and lead instructor of Birthright Initiative. Her strong desire to support pregnant women and their families came from her own experience as a first-time mother. In 2015, she became a Certified Breastfeeding Educator, in accordance with the standards set by the World Health Organization. Her transformative pregnancy and birth using HypnoBirthing®, the Mongan Method, prompted her to get her certification as a HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator in 2016. She offers HypnoBirthing Childbirth classes, personalized breastfeeding support, and guidance on parenting resources.

Yohanna Castro established Birthright Initiative because she is convinced that a best beginning is the birthright of every baby, mother, and family — however different that beginning may look. Birthright Initiative exists to remind women and their families of this birthright and to empower them with the tools to become active participants in ensuring their own best beginning with their baby.
