I believe in birth as a normal physiological process. I believe in you.  I believe in your body's ability.  I believe in your baby.  As your coach and guide, I hope to support your achievements in experience a postive birthing experience.




My Inspiration

The first time that I witnessed birth, I was in awe.  My very close friend invited me into the room for the birth of her second child. I was so thankful to my friend for being so open during an intimate life moment. That experience started me on my birth journey.  From there, my own pregnancies and births really sparked my passion for birth. With each birth, I continued to read and talk birth more and more. It was such an empowering and transformative experience that I felt all women deserved to feel this way- strong, beautiful and loved.   In addition, having a birth team was vital to my positive birth experiences. I appreciated all the support that I received from my partner, doula and care providers; they believed in me. I have a calling to give back what I received.  The continous emtional and pyhsical support is a vital role that is missing in our modern birthing world.

I want to be an active particpant in my birth, not let it happen to me.
