Experience the flavor of Birthing from Within through local and online offerings for doulas, childbirth educators, nurses, midwives, OB/GYNs, IBCLCs, prenatal yoga instructors, support group leaders, and other professionals who work with parents during the childbearing year. These workshops will deepen your relationship with birth, and change the way you see yourself as a birth professional.

Igniting Your Passion and Helping Parents

Birth work is amazing, beautiful, rewarding...and challenging. Supporting parents through major life transitions comes with its own unique struggles for birth and postpartum workers. I want to help you connect with the passion that called you to this work, and to yourself as a birth professional. 

I offer local in-person workshops, as well as online trainings to help you foster amazing new skills for supporting yourself through the labyrinth of birth and postpartum work, and guiding parents through healing and self-compassion.
