Childbirth is an amazing experience - it brings not only the birth of a sweet baby, but also the birth of a mother. I support birthing mothers to trust their instincts, communicate effectively with their birth team, and tap into their inner strength. This self-confidence can continue and strengthen you in the journey of parenthood.
I believe in supporting all women. I support your birth with love and without judgment, recognizing each birth is unique. I have experience working with families in many different situations including unmedicated birth, epidural use, cesarean birth, and VBAC. It is an honor to be a present for the profound experience of birth and see the growth of each family.
Childbirth education is invaluable for understanding the process of birth, evidenced-based care recommendations, and medical interventions. It will aid you in making informed decisions about your birth and your baby. You will learn and practice comfort techniques and labor positions with your partner.
I teach Lamaze childbirth classes, which are based upon Six Healthy Birth Practices, using active learning styles and multimedia. I also draw upon my yoga background to teach relaxation, breathwork, and connected support.
