My journey to become a birth worker took time. I married my sweetie in the midst of dealing with a chronic, debilitating pain condition. Along my healing journey I discovered that I had a gift for creating connections and helping others achieve wellness. With the birth of my son in 2011, I became acutely aware of the need for more people like me working in the birth world. I wanted to become a professional in the continuum of child-rearing so that I could support my clients in every aspect of the transition to parenthood, from beginning to end.
Fast forward to now, I am now an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), International Certified Childbirth Educator, Usui/Tibetan Reiki Master, and life/health coach. I have served hundreds of families through my prenatal classes, being their doula, and providing lactation support, coaching and providing reiki treatments.
My goals are to help you find optimal health in a holistic way. I want you to feel empowered as a new parent with the tools you need to thrive emotionally and physically. My dream is that all parents thrive instead of survive in all aspects of themselves. I want everyone to learn how to manifest vitality, healthy relationships with self and family, calming the nervous system and building community.
In addition to my work-life I also have a big happy urban homestead. I have 3 children (Henry, Clara and Barnaby), 9 chickens, 2 cats and 6 newborn kittens! My life is overflowing with joy (and plenty of crazy!). Over the course of these last 7 years I have been slowly building the life I’ve always imagined–lots of life around me, a lot of work and a lot of love.
I bring unconditional loving care and expertise to my work and look forward to getting to know you!
