Empowered Births and Beginnings
Setting the Stage for Empowered Births and Beginnings through Childbirth Education
I started my business from the heartfelt desire to empower new Moms and their labor partners for one of the most memorable experiences they’ll ever have, meeting their babies. This desire was seeded in my soul as I sat through my very own childbirth classes and feeling so empowered by the knowledge and understanding of the birth process, I just knew I wanted to be able to give that same experience to other Moms and their partners.
I trained with my very own childbirth education teacher, in the Happy Birth Way, an offering of classes that are designed to honor all birth preferences and locations. Whether you’re looking to have a home birth, birth center birth or hospital birth, these classes will leave you prepared, educated and empowered. To that foundation, I add an evidence-based approach, along with lots of #reallife conversations and oodles of love and compassion, empowering my students from day 1 to listen for what resonates and inviting them to trust their intuition.
My desire to support Mamas beyond birth education came from my own experiences as a new Mama. I had my babies very close together (12 months and 3 weeks apart to be exact) and looking back at my Postpartum experience for both pregnancies, especially after my second, I now know I had undiagnosed postpartum anxiety. I went years (and still struggle, though less than at the beginning) with this overwhelming feeling of uncertainty, anxiousness, and fear around my ability to parent my children and suffered immensely with feeling unworthy of love and like an utter failure. Through my own experiences, lots of therapy, and learning how to love myself through these moments, I have become SO aware of how many other women suffer and struggle in the same ways. I am a trained postpartum doula, a woman who helps serve women in the 4th Trimester (and you don’t have to be diagnosed with PPD to benefit from one), and love working with women to support and encourage them to give themselves Grace and to recognize that they are doing the best they can.
I believe the way we experience our first trimester as Moms has a major impact on how we continue to show up in Motherhood in our lives, thus making this such a tender and impactful time for us. Support, love, compassion, and understanding are the keys to having as empowered an experience as possible.
I hope this has given you a sense for my heart, my intention, my passion and how I can help serve you and other women and families.
