As a Lamaze® Certified Childbirth Educator, it is my responsibility and privilege to promote birth as a normal and healthy process that has a profound effect on women and families. I will provide evidence based information that will help you make informed decisions in birth, as well as be an advocate for normal and natural birth by instilling confidence in your body’s ability to birth your baby. I will explain the stages of labor and help you and your partner learn strategies and comfort measures to facilitate a normal and healthy pregnancy and birth. I will also teach the importance of breastfeeding and attachment parenting.

Classes for Multiples and Vaginal Birth After Cesarean are offered as well.

Private classes are available.
