A little bit about my background: I have been blessed with five amazing kids, ages 22 to 32, and five beautiful grandbabies, ages 7, 5, 2, 8 months, and 2 months. I was fortunate to be a full time, stay-at-home mom for 13 years when they were little, and it was during that time that I first became a certified childbirth instructor.  I later became an EMT, and then a Paramedic, delivering several babies myself "in the field." I have spent the last several years as the area clinical / training manager for the largest private ambulance company in the United States.  In total, I have almost 16 years of EMS / healthcare education experience, and have taught a variety of medical subjects to EMT's, Paramedics, RN's, and medical students. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Emergency Medical Care from Loma Linda University and have a great passion for clinical quality improvement and evidence-based medicine.  I am also certified as a Health Coach, specializing in expectant and new mothers, through the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute, and an Evidence Based Birth Instructor.

Having said all that, my role in teaching childbirth classes is quite simple: to help you learn about the normal, natural processes of pregnancy and childbirth.  To that end, I believe my greatest asset as an educator is my own personal background: I have had normal, healthy pregnancies, and one high-risk one; had difficult, frightening birth experiences, and medication-free, peaceful, joyful ones; bottle fed and breastfed; and been a married, homeschooling mom and later a single, working mother. I've experienced birth and parenthood from pretty much every perspective you can imagine, and I am happy to share both my successes and my stumbling blocks with my students, in order to help you achieve the safe, fulfilling pregnancy and birth experience that you desire.

You will also receive two of my resource guides, "10 Drug Free Ways to Reduce Pain in Childbirth" and "How to Choose a Childbirth Class."  I will also send you a free book on nutrition in pregnancy.
