Tree of Life: Natural Childbirth & Beyond


My husband and I have had four amazing births using The Bradley Method®.  Each of our births was unique.  Our first son, Matthew, was born in the spring of 2006 in the hospital at 35 weeks, five days gestation.  Our second son, Nathan, was born in late 2007 at 39 weeks in an accidental unassisted birth in the car on the way to the hospital.  For his birth we hired an amazing doula.  Our daughter, Sarah, was born in late 2010, just shy of 40 weeks in a planned home water birth.  Our sons were asleep in their beds.  Finally, our daughter, Autumn, came into the world through homebirth on April 8, 2014.  Matthew and Sarah were able to witness the birth with the help of an amazing birth/sibling doula, and Nathan woke shortly after to meet his littlest sister.  Having such varied experiences gives me unique perspective and enriches the instruction and doula services I offer.

More about me:  I hold a Masters of Education and am a licensed NYC public school Dramatic Arts teacher.  I've been a La Leche League Leader since 2010, leading with both the Hackettstown, NJ and Staten Island, NY groups.  In the past I helped found the Skylands, NJ chapter of BirthNetwork National, a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of the Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative, and led monthly meetings with them as well. 

My family and I moved from NYC to Budd Lake, NJ in 2009 and we absolutely love living here.  I am a life long student and self-titled birth and conference junkie.  I love doing community theater and knitting, and I’m interested in all things holistic and natural parenting. 

I am so passionate about birthing without fear and I feel completely honored to be able to help other families during one of the most amazing, life-changing milestones they’ll ever experience.
