CLD (CAPPA), Certified BIRTHING FROM WITHIN® Mentor,  Lactation, Childbirth, and Grandparenting Educator

unnamedRemembering my own birth experiences and, having the joy of having been a part of so many births, I became aware of the need to help parents before their births.  A lifelong process of personal and professional growth began when I first read Pam England’s book, Birthing From Within,  and found the philosophy a perfect fit with my own. My journey continues even now, through advanced certifications and workshops, and through mentoring our Birthing From Within classes. I am privileged to be a witness, guide and mentor through a year of great change in a womans life.

I am also trained in optimal fetal positioning techniques and facilitate workshops teaching parents how to help babies find an easy passage as an adjunct to my Birthing From Within classes. Now I am a grandmother. I have learned firsthand how imperative it is for new grands to know what has changed since THEY gave birth ,so I developed a class just for them. My role is to mentor and support families. I look forward to serving yours.
