My husband, Alan, and I have 4 fun, energetic children. My birth experiences are: 1 daughter born in the hospital (induced for pre-eclampsia) in 2003, 1 adopted son born in the hospital (I was able to attend his birth!) in 2007, a 2nd daughter born at home in 2009 using the Bradley Method® and a 2nd son born at home in 2012 using the Bradley Method®.

Alan and I learned many strategies from the Bradley Method® to help us have amazing birth experiences and I look forward to sharing information and ideas so you can have the best possible birth experience! 

My ultimate goal for my students is that they feel empowered through gaining knowledge and practice to make the choices they want to have satisfying and safe birth experiences...joyfully!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have at any time. I LOVE talking about all things related to birth!
