Birth is one of the most pivotal events in life and should be awaited as eagerly as life's other rites of passage. How a woman feels about her birth has an impact on how she feels about herself, her body, and her motherhood.
The ability to conceive and grow a new life within, and give birth to a baby, is a privilege and a blessing. However, this soul-deep truth has been overshadowed or even lost to many women, whose perspective on childbirth has been clouded by our culture. For many people, childbirth is an ordeal to be feared, "just what a woman must suffer through, in order to have a baby." I love sharing an alternate view, of participating in the miracle of pregnancy and birth as an honor and a celebration.
, CCCE Childbirth Educator & Doula
I have been happily married since 1990 and blessed with three wonderful children. Through my own birth experiences in the hospital, a birth center, and at home, I became passionate about fully experiencing the wonder of the natural birth process, and sharing this enthusiasm with others. I am a childbirth educator and a doula because I love pregnancy, labor, childbirth, and newborns. My calling is to help others have a meaningful birth experience that they will cherish.
