Pictured with me are my two lovely daughters and my wonderful husband.
Ibecame interested in childbirth when I became pregnant with my first baby. I did a lot of reading and realized that I did not have to rely on medication to get me through birth. I took natural childbirth classes with the American Academy of Husband Coached Childbirth® which helped my husband and I tremendously. After the birth of my second child, I knew that I wanted to share my knowledge and passion for birth to other couples and became a certified natural childbirth Instructor with the American Academy of Husband Coached Childbirth ®. I have been teaching since 1990. I have changed my affliation in 2012 and became certifed through Informed Beginnings as a certifed childbirth instructor.
I am also a former HypnoBirthing® instructor from 2000-2010.
Throughout my teaching career, I have supported couples in my classes during their births. In 2007, I decided to officially certify as a labor doula through DONA® International.
I am a former member of the ICEA (International Childbirth Education Association).
I hold an Associates of Arts degree.
Besides my birth work, I hold a full time job, enjoy working out, reading, ballroom dancing, and gardening.
