Hi! I am so happy that you are visiting my website. I hope to inspire you to prepare for a healthy natural birth as I did more than 15 years ago. 

Through Bradley classes, I delivered my two great kids naturally, one in the hospital and one at home. I learned how to eat to make strong babies in spite of having hyperemesis gravidarum and I even nursed one while I was pregnant with the other. At the time, I wasn't thrilled about the experiences of my pregnancies. But I love giving birth, and that inspired me to become a childbirth educator. Over the years and especially as an educator, I have learned to appreciate the messages our bodies give us so as not to see the symptoms of pregnancy or labor as annoyances or signs of illness. This has been a powerful revelation for me that I hope to impart to you through the course.

What Is My Philosophy?

Similar to Dr. Bradley, I believe:
  • in women's ability to birth
  • in the strength and comfort of a partner's love and support
  • that women's bodies are made to birth naturally even though our current cultural conditioning teaches us helplessness
  • that relationships can become more fun, communicative, and passionate during pregnancy with the right attitude and practices
  • that babies deserve natural birth, especially in this time of opioid misuse
  • that women and their partners deserve to learn to trust her body's wisdom during pregnancy and throughout parenthood

Why Should You Trust Me?
  • I have had two Bradley births
  • I nursed each of my children for 4 years without ever offering a pacifier or formula
  • I've read a lot of books, and I still trust my female intuition more than any of the advice they offer
  • I challenge my own assumptions and philosophies every couple of years, and I always come back to believing in women's bodies as sacred and magnificent
  • I made two really intelligent, loving, and well-adjusted kids
  • My love for life, the Great Creator, and all things guides the course

What Will You Learn?
You will learn to give birth naturally. In my class, we will deepen your understanding of Dr. Bradley's advice in his book Husband Coached Childbirth by applying it. We will practice exercises and techniques so that after 12 weeks the techniques have become second nature.
