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?

Research shows that those who participate in childbirth education have less fear, increased confidence, less interventions, and increased satisfaction with birth.

I've been there. Tracking ovulation, peeing on the stick, sitting in the office waiting for results. I've been there, learning in class, aching with contractions, staring at the sterility of the OR. I've been there, nipples cracked and bleeding, hormones wild, spending a whole day staring at a tiny little stranger. And I've been at that bedside, over + over again, while every type of scenario played out in my patients' lives. Let me give you all of it - so you can take this information and craft a birth + postpartum you want to do over and over again.

where your $$$ Goes

“It is in birth where you can feel what it's like to feel the universe shift. To walk the line between two worlds, the before and the after.”

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.
