My passion is empowering and educating women and their birth companions to have the best pregnancy and birth. Here's why: I am the mom of four, almost grown, young men. I've birthed in three different states with 2 OB's and a Midwife. My births ranged from traumatic to fantastic. I have a degree in Psychology and a background in biofeedback. All of these things came together when I found the HypnoBirthing natural childbirth method while I was pregnant with my fourth son 14 years ago. My midwife encouraged me to become certified after that birth.
I was trained by the founder of HypnoBirhting. Marie Mongan in 2007. Later I was trained by Jenny West, author of "The complete Dummy's Guide to Natural Birth", to become a professional birth companion or doula. Now, I read everything I can get my hands on related to natural birth. I've take extra certifications like "Spinning Babies" and "Evidence Based Birth".
I've worked with hundreds of moms in some way over he last 13 years and I cherish every single one them. I've been invited into many a family's most intimate space during labor, birth and after.
Helping, teaching and supporting pregnant women is what makes me happy!
