Giving birth is a natural marathon that every mother was created to run! We want to help you run your race by training you and your husband to work together during pregnancy, during labor and delivery, and after the birth of your blessing. We look forward to being a small part of one of the most important and wonderful events in your life.

My Birth Stories:

As we teach, we have our own wonderful stories to share. Our daughter, Ramiyah, was born on Thanksgiving Day in 2009 in a Birth Center in Alexandria, VA. Although my birth with Ramiyah was natural, it was also long and hard. My husband and I were so thankful to have taken a childbirth course! It was an incredible experience that changed our lives forever.  

Our son, Samuel, was born on Sept. 27, 2011 at North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, Georgia. Samuel chose to come to us a little differently than expected. We discovered at 39 weeks that our little man was footling breech (feet first), estimated to be 10 lbs, and wrapped in his cord multiple times. We tried everything we could to help him turn, but he just could not do it. Therefore, it was necessary that he be born by c-section. It was a learning experience that impacted me greatly as a person and as a teacher.  

Finally, our daughter Grace was born October 24, 2014. Her birth was everything I could have asked for. It was quick and easy. She was born in water at the NOVA Natural Birth Center in Chantilly, Va. Her birth gave me my first successful VBAC. 

Although our 3 birth stories are very different, we cherish each of them! Our children are healthy and happy! We also believe our very different 3 birth experiences can help inspire many others to have a meaningful and memorable birth.

My Bio:

I am a stay at home mom, homeschooling mom, and have been a childbirth educator for 7 years. I have taught childbirth classes at pregnancy centers, maternity homes, in an Ob office, the Manassas WIC (Women Infant and Children) office, the NOVA Natural Birth Center as their in-house childbirth educator, and now at a Chiropractic and Wellness office. I served the Virginia Department of Health as a Breastfeeding Educator for 2 years. I am also a frequent speaker at local mother's groups, a blogger, and author. Currently my family and I live in Bristow, VA.

We look forward to meeting you, serving you, and being a part of your story in the wonderful miracle of childbirth!
