Life is a gift and birth is a miracle.
I consider it an honor and privilege to support a woman and her family as they welcome their baby into their arms and into their hearts, where their precious baby will leave their footprints forever. As a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, I will provide evidence based information to expectant families which support and protect normal birth. I am also an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor so can provide expectant parents with the tools they need to understand the latest evidence based practices. As a Certified Birth Doula through Doulas of North America (DONA), I offer my constant support to the laboring mother, in addition to nurturing her support team. As a Certified Lactation Counselor, my support continues as mother and baby learn the “breastfeeding dance” together. And as a Certified Educator of Infant Massage, I can share the knowledge of infant massage with parents, so they can bond with their baby through the special, nurturing power of touch. My certification as a Dr. Sears Health Coach can provide support in healthy lifestyle choices before, during and after pregnancy. I also offer CPR classes as an Instructor through the American Heart Association.
My children and grand children are the greatest blessings in my life. It is because of the never ending joy that they bring to me that I have pursued my education in the field of birth and have the passion to share the joy of parenthood with expectant families.
