I can answer questions dealing with preparing for birth, childbirth classes, pregnancy, doulas, VBAC, natural childbirth, cesarean birth, interventions in labor, labor, birth, helping someone through labor, concerns or fears about labor and birth, doulas, breastfeeding, and other topics dealing with pregnancy, labor, and birth.
Since 2004, I have taught childbirth education classes focused on helping couples gain confidence, make decisions for their birth, and give them tools for helping them get the birth they want. Since 2004, I have also attend births in local hospitals as a birth doula (as of 8/10, I have attended 120 births) , so I am able to see firsthand what is working in helping couples deal with labor. I am a mom of five children.
I am a Lamaze-certified childbirth educator as well as a DONA-certified birth doula.
