In my second ( also my last) year of massage school, I found myself pregnant with our first son. We were excited + scared at the same time! I became very interested with the anatomy of a woman’s body + how it changes physiologically during pregnancy, childbirth + even after.
When he was only six months old, I decided that I needed to become a HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator. And I needed to do this sooner than later. His birth was traumatic in many ways. Even though we read all the books people recommended and took many other steps to prep for childbirth, we were left with a not so great experience. We were educated, but inexperienced + ultimately - not as prepared as you can be.
My son’s birth changed the course of my life. It wasn't the birth experience I had imagined. In many ways, I felt disempowered, out of control of my own body + silenced.
Taking the HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator course is something I needed to do as part of my healing journey. To be honest, I didn’t even know if I was going to teach it. After talking to some friends + hearing their birth stories of their children - none of them were positive - I decided that needs to change.
You see, what the books + other birth prep classes don't tell you is that having a baby is the BIGGEST thing you will ever do. They don’t tell you that the people, energy + environment you surround yourself with throughout your pregnancy + at the time of birth will forever shape the person you are to become.
Bringing a child into the world will change who you are, how you think + what you expect from those around you. Sometimes, that one experience might even prompt you to take a different path in life!
And so here we are...
My mission is to help every mom prepare for a gentle and natural birth experience. Your body is designed to give birth - it does not have to be the scariest + most painful thing you will ever do.
I am here to transform + empower women.
I am here to take care of you. To help you feel heard, seen + confident.
