Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Natural childbirth is not something for the extraordinary woman, but something that is achievable by most women with the right education, preparation and support.  I'd love to show you how to train for this magnificent event!  To date, my personal students have a cesarean section rate of less than 15%.  And nearly 85% of my students have a successful unmedicated birth (for vaginal births).   

I live in Bloomington, IL with my husband and 6 kids. Since my husband works in Peoria, we are back and forth between there and Bloomington/Normal quite a bit, which led me to teach students from both communities.  I'd love to have the opportunity to serve you!

I am currently teaching classes in Bloomington.  I regularly have students from  Bloomington/Normal, Peoria and many surrounding areas.
