About me
I am passionate about all things birth and baby but especially empowering birthing people and their partners to make informed decisions, to approach birth with a sense of trust (instead of fear), and to ultimately have a safe, joyful birthing experience and a successful transition into the new demands of parenthood. Prior to founding Joyful Birthing in 2014, I taught high-school English for ten years. My own birthing experiences sparked my passion for safer, more empowered birthing and prompted me to leave my career as an educator to pursue birth work. Since 2014, I have supported hundreds of couples during pregnancy, birth, and early parenting.

HypnoBirthing® Childbirth EducationThis 12-hour series focuses on harnessing the mind-body connection to facilitate easy, gentle birthing. The premise of HypnoBirthing® is that women’s bodies are perfectly designed to give birth and that fear and tension (not nature’s design) cause pain in childbirth and often unnecessary intervention and complication. The series is for you and partner and can be taken at any point during your pregnancy.
