Our Story

In Novermber 2008, my husband Tim and I welcomed our little boy into the world. During my pregnancy we attended a short 2 session series class at our hospital but left feeling like we could have learned more. We needed more confidence in knowing my body can have a baby without medical intervention. Looking back, we wish we would have taken advice from friends to take The Bradley series instead because my OB convinced us to induce which led to more interventions and ultimately led to a unnecessary cesarean. My body and our baby was just not ready for labor. While some cesareans save mothers and save babies, mine could have been prevented. 

Leaving the hospital, I was feeling more than just the physical pain from the cesarean. I was also feeling emotional pain from my body failing to progress the labor after induction.   I knew  there was a better way! That's why we took the Bradley series during our second pregnancy. We were so glad we did because our daughter was born natural VBAC in July 2010 and our second son was born natural VBAC in June 2012. Both were born in our home with a midwife. 

After our daughter was born, I knew I wanted to help women and their families have the information and the education needed to make the best choices for their births which is why I became a Childbirth Educator and Doula. 

All of our births were special and meaningful to us. Each one taught us something different. Our first birth taught us what you don't know can hurt you sometimes, the second taught us how to find our voices and to have courage for ourselves and our family, and our last birth really showed us how to have patience. Each were very unique in their own way and perfect just for us. If you had asked me a few years ago if I could wish my c- section away, I would have said yes in a heart beat. Today, years later, I say no. My c- section changed me, for the better!
