Building empowerment, self-confidence and connection through candid education and compassionate advocacy for all families before, during and after pregnancy. TM
When my son was an infant, I facilitated a new parents support group at The Midwife Center. It was there that I listened to birth stories, breastfeeding challenges and triumphs, complaints of sleepless nights and the joy when a partner stepped up and when above and beyond for mom and baby.
As a prenatal yoga teacher, I also heard stories of births gone south and mothers who were coping badly with their experiences. I heard stories of care providers who were unsupportive of a mother’s choices.
I had mothers tell me they didn’t know what they could ask for during labor and birth, mothers who didn’t know what was possible.
I heard stories of preventable birth trauma and stories of magnificently wonderful care providers who respected their patient’s needs and were a calm and steady presence during labor.
These stories shaped my personal beliefs around birth and fueled my desire to support mothers by providing the high quality, evidence based information, physical preparation through yoga and emotional support that is necessary to have a good birthing experience.
Watching you, my students, evolve into strong, competent and confident parents is what drives me to serve you as fully as I can. To do so, I offer group classes, private and online classes, and doula services to fit your needs.
