Expecting parents deserve inclusive, non-judgmental childbirth preparation. My work as a Doula, Childbirth Educator, Birth Story Mentor, Birth Professional Trainer, Author, and Coach has shown me the importance of giving parents the tools they need to work toward their goals while helping them foster a resilient, self-compassionate mindset to face the inevitable surprises - large or small - that arise during the birth process.

I know what's it's like to experience confusion and overwhelm during times of transition.
