About me

My birth journey started almost 20 years ago, with the birth of my own amazing child, whose unexpected breech presentation caused me to shift my birth plans significantly. Over time I have been called to support different parents as they navigate their own journeys into parenthood. My experience has encouraged me to be especially empathetic and supportive of parents who have had births outside of their expectations. Experience has taught me, this is almost all parents.

Service introduction

My first birth allowed me the opportunity to learn about breech positioning. Due to that experience and following birth, which was a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) I have become an advocate for increased education and choice during and leading up to birth. I have participated in the planning of two international conferences bringing together experts from multiple fields. This encourages me to continue researching pertinent information from multiple fields of inquiry in the interest of supporting birthing families. I am always working to expand my knowledge of the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of birth to better support my clients as they traverse this path. Doing so has lead me to courses from Spinning Babies, Penny Simkin, and Robin Lim.
