Hey sweetheart! I’m glad you’re here.
I’m Krystal Trammell, birth nerd and multipassionate mama. I have five kids from age 18(!) to 5, and I’m basically a hippie at heart.
- I’m also a web designer, a longtime unschooler, and I write regularly for The Homestead Guru.
- I volunteer with the Earth Repair Corps and I’m a Texas Master Naturalist, too.
- If you decide to follow me on Instagram, be prepared for lots of nature pics!
MY OWN BIRTHS – Two of my five kids were born at home, and the last one was unassisted. It was magical.
HIPPIE CREDENTIALS – I might be addicted to the crystal shop…
FANDOMS – On a scale of 1-10, I am 9 and 3/4 obsessed with all things Harry Potter.
ROOTS – I am a Hungarian gypsy by heritage, but I’m happy to have roots here in Central Texas.

Pregnancy is a time to celebrate!
Sometimes, pregnancy can be really tough on the mind and emotions. I’m skilled in emotional healing, belief work, and fear release. I use essential oils along with Tapping/EFT, Reiki, and the Bach flower remedies to help with this. Emotional work is really beneficial, espcially if you’re planning a VBAC, CBAC, or have experienced prior birth trauma or loss.
Over the years, I’ve also learned loads about holistic nutrition and herbs. Whatever your diet looks like – vegetarian, vegan, paleo, primal, GAPS – I’m probably familiar with it!
I believe that even very small babies can understand far more than we give them credit for, and are deserving of our kindness and respect. This fits with emerging research in perinatal psychology and attachment theory. I can help you to bond more fully with your baby during pregnancy, and in the trying newborn stage.
