hey, mama!

Let's figure this birth thing out.

Here's the thing. You can love your birth. Did you know that? There are a thousand different ways this could look - and so many of them can be right. So let's work together to teach you what you need to know.

No bests. No shoulds. Education for you - then you go write your own good + beautiful story.

Does birth really have
to be scary?

You're probably going to have a lot of people tell you birth is terrifying. That it's wildly unpredictable - and the best thing you can do is just go along for the ride. What if it isn't true?

What if I can teach you what you need to know - and we can turn that fear into understanding + confidence? What if I can teach you that this isn't something you have to go along with - but instead something you can enjoy?

what they're saying

mama of 3, birth & postpartum RN, 
story writer, mashed potato lover

You know what I mean? That person who doesn't care if you ask them the weird questions. The one who expects you to send them pictures of diapers + cracked nipples. That friend who knows you are the best mama for that child - and they will do anything they can to remind you of that.
