Birth Education

I am a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE), with additional training in several other birth & postpartum education models including Spinning Babies and hypnosis techniques. I will gladly share my commitment to healthy, fulfilling births with you. My in-person or virtual private classes allow us to focus on the hopes, concerns, and questions of your family’s unique pregnancy, birth setting, and life with baby postpartum.

more about birth education

Drawing upon evidence and current research, a passion for physiologic birth, a strong commitment to informed decision making, and my experience as a doula, I provide 8-9 hours of private birth education to birthing people and their partners.

Divided into 2-3 sessions or one lengthier day, my class allows expecting parents to schedule their birth education for a time convenient to them, in an intimate setting, tailored to their particular hopes for and circumstances surrounding their birth.

I offer birth education for expecting parents who'd like to spend two to six days in our guest cottage in the woods.

Both parents will receive their customized birth education in a beautiful studio cottage, surrounded by a rolling lawn, gorgeous woods, and local hikes, restaurants, exhibits, and shopping.
