they remember is a site dedicated to the stories of unborn spirits–those who have already come, those who will come, and especially those whose first visits into their mothers’ wombs were cut short.

Sarah HinzeFor over 25 years, Sarah Hinze has been a researcher of near death, prebirth and other spiritual phenomena that add evidence to the reality that we are divine beings and the spiritual children of God. She has written eight books, spoken throughout the US, as well as Canada and Mexico. Her books have been published in German and Portuguese. She has been on a hundred or more radio shows and over a dozen television shows through the years. Her husband Brent is her ever-ready assistant, and his Ph.D. in psychology makes him her closest and favorite colleague. Together they have spoken at various colleges and universities and at national and international conferences. Sarah and Brent reside in Mesa, Arizona and are the parents of nine children and a growing cluster of grandchildren. She has written several books, including We Lived in Heaven, The Castaways, Songs of the Morning Stars, Coming from the Light, Life Before Life, and her newest book, The Memory Catcher: When Angels Speak, Who Will Listen?

IMGP5199Lani Axman became interested in Sarah Hinze’s research after experiencing multiple pre-birth encounters with her own four children (and others not yet born). She has been passionate about pregnancy, birth, and mothering for nearly a decade. In 2007, Lani created her blog, Birth Faith, where she continues to share her thoughts and research with thousands of readers around the world. She became trained as a birth doula through DONA International in 2009 and in neonatal resuscitation in 2011 and looks forward to attending births someday. In the spring of 2012, Lani Axman and four co-authors published their book, The Gift of Giving Life: Rediscovering the Divine Nature of Pregnancy and Birth. In March of 2013, Lani and Sarah combined their efforts to create this website. Lani now resides near Phoenix, Arizona, with her husband, four children, and many beloved houseplants.
