Why take my Childbirth Prep Class?
One With Child is a comprehensive 3 Week Series created for those searching for a positive birth experience. Together, we learn how to prepare for birth; physically, mentally & emotionally, Through the process, you will be empowered with the skills of comfort & coping techniques, breathing, movement & the use of a Rebozo. Also, discover the practice of various Spinning Babies ® techniques to enhance your comfort during pregnancy and assist your baby to navigate through the pelvis during labor. Understanding that each experience is unique, we discuss commonly suggested interventions. We discuss how to make informed decisions based on evidence, and most importantly, celebrate your values and preferences. With 14 years of experience as a Certified Childbirth Educator my purpose is to reduce the fear or anxiety you may experience through the birthing process. I will provide all the necessary tools to build your confidence with an emphasis on strengthening the connection between you and your baby.
Spinning Babies® Parent Class

Spinning Babies Parent Class shows you what to do for an easier birth with practical and detailed preparation to help baby find the best position to fit into the pelvis and solutions when labor seems long, painful. or has a stall. If practiced daily, an easier labor and birth are likely.
Why have a Birth Doula?
Having support from a doula, a childbirth educator and a mom who understands the birth process is pretty awesome! I have such fond memories of conversations with my doula. As your doula I provide continuous emotional and physical support to you and your husband/partner during labor, birth and early postpartum. I listen to your needs, support your choices and keep you on track. Being an Evidence Based Birth ® Emeritus Instructor, I am able to explain the details of any interventions that the doctor or nurse may be suggesting and help you advocate your preferences. As your doula I don’t replace your husband/partner but am there to enhance the experience and allow him/her to enjoy it without all the pressure.
