RELAXED

I teach relaxation techniques and stress that fear leads to tension. Once the body is relaxed, a natural, unmedicated birth does happen! Come to class and learn how to enjoy birth by learning relaxation, massage, and natural breathing.

relaxed birth leads to a better birth for you and baby. You’ll experience true harmony in birth.

INFORMED

I teach informed consent for all your pregnancy and birthing procedures. Through the 10 week series, you’ll learn methods to promote positive communications. Classes also stress emotional stages in labor so you know that THIS IS IT! Dads really like knowing where mom is during birth.

You’ll have the information you need to make informed choices about YOUR birth.

NATURAL

Birth was meant to be NATURAL. You’ll learn that your body is designed for labor and birth and motherhood. The 10 week series teaches you how to achieve an intervention free birth.  I use many birth affirmations for the mother and her support team.

natural birth gives you the overall best experience for your birth.

PEACEFUL

Birth can be and should be peaceful. Through my classes, you will learn the normal physiological stages of birth. You will learn how your baby is preparing for birth to help her come into your life.  You will also learn how to discuss issue that concern you about your birth with your birthing team.

Peace will be surrounding you during your birth giving you the best outcomes for you and baby.

FREEDOM

I teach that you have a choice in birth.  Feeling free to move and experience your birth your way is very important to many mothers.  

STRENGTH

Your pregnancy is only the beginning of your journey. Through my classes, I strive to teach you to trust your parenting instincts.  Parenting involves so many new choices. You will learn basic newborn care, breastfeeding, and parenting choices you have.

The more you trust your parenting instinct; the stronger you become as a parent.


I have been teaching natural childbirth classes since 2005.  Over the years, my course content for my classes has grown and will continue to grow.  I wish to continue to grow as an educator in the birthing community and new motherhood community.As for the future, I'm a doula in training with DONA and beginning my training to become a certified lactation consultant (IBCLC).

If you live in the Inland Empire, I would love to help you plan your birth.  Class is forming NOW for February 7, 2011!
