First, why I chose to teach.
Having grown up on a farm, seeing animals give birth it had actually never quite occurred to me that there was any other way to do it (except emergency C-section and those were as the name implies, specifically, and only for emergencies) so when I became pregnant with my first baby I entered the world of hospitals and OB's, completely clueless and and trusting, at the mercy of whatever they  thought was best. I may have thought I was making informed decisions but really I was just doing whatever they thought was best. I knew nothing So my mother, as a gift to my husband and I, signed us up for Bradley® classes. we were skeptical (mothers/mother-in-laws can have crazy ideas), but it turned out to be the best thing we did in preparation for our baby. The classes we attended took the confusion and uncertainty and vulnerability of birth away. we felt ready and knowledgeable and empowered to have our baby naturally, without any interventions  or medications. we felt confident about our decisions, We were able to experience and enjoy the birth of our daughter to its fullest.
After that I became excited about natural childbirth and wanted to tell everyone! so I became a Bradley method® teacher. 
We then became pregnant with our son and now having studied even more and taught a few classes, we felt even more ready to have this baby naturally, His big sister got to be present and as a family we welcomed our son into the world, again naturally, free of any medication or intervention. His birth even more than his sisters made me feel so strong and proud.
What do I enjoy besides birth? I am artistic, I love to create. Sewing, baking, cooking delicious food, giving new life to old things, writing, and drawing. I am an adventurer, I love being outdoors with my kids, we love camping and road trips, and aquariums. I am a dreamer I love tea and books and coffee and dark beer, I love animals and will one day have many. I love learning and talking. I love teaching, both childbirth classes and teaching my children.
But above all these things I love my God and I love my husband and children, and would not be who I am without them.
