It has been an honor to be a part of the miraculous journey through pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period for the precious families that I've been privileged to work with over the past several years. I'm hoping that as you read more about me and the services I offer, you'll allow me to share my passion, my knowledge and my heart with you through compassionate, informative and fun childbirth education.
My classes are based on the Lamaze Six Healthy Birth practices:
Healthy Birth Practice 1: Let labor begin on its own
Healthy Birth Practice 2: Walk, move around and change positions throughout labor
Healthy Birth Practice 3: Bring a loved one, friend or doula for continuous support
Healthy Birth Practice 4: Avoid interventions that are not medically necessary
Healthy Birth Practice 5: Avoid giving birth on your back and follow your body's urges to push
Healthy Birth Practice 6: Keep mother and baby together - It's best for mother, baby and breastfeeding
The video below from Lamaze International is an introduction to these practices. Enjoy!
