I've been working with families for over thirteen years. As the only Certified "Birthing From Within" Mentor and Doula on the South Coast, I offer a unique perspective on birth. In my dynamic and deeply personal approach to birth preparation and healing, families find holistic, introspective, and soulful ways to ready themselves for their powerful initiation into parenthood.
I've been trained by Pam England, author of "Birthing From Within," for the past six years. I work closely with her, and all my offerings are based on her book and our continuing work together.
*Birthing From Within Class: 12 hours total: a 6-week series or immersion weekend
*Birthin' Again Classes: For women and their partners who are expecting a second or more child.
*Birth Story Workshops: For women who experience difficult births and are looking for new perspective and healing.
*Cesarean Preparation Class: 90-minute class for all expectant parents, whether they are trying to avoid one or know they must have one.
*Birth Art Cafe: Two-hour workshop for women to create art about birth and mothering. Lively and personal discussion unfolds as we connect through creativity.
*The Childbearing Year: This unique course offers nine months of classes (twice a month), throughout pregnancy and early postpartum. A wonderful in-depth way to experience an extended preparation for birth and parenting.
*Mothering Circles: Occasional gatherings of women, for sharing, connection, and learning.
All fees are on a sliding scale. Private classes available.
My other qualifications include: Certified Birth Doula (DONA and BFW), and Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I am mother to three children, including twins.
I look forward to talking with you about how I can support and empower you and your family throughout your childbearing year.
