I sought out an education in childbirth and women’s health after being inspired by several of my friends’ journeys into motherhood. I felt compelled by the need for birth workers in Nashville, but especially in developing countries. I believe that parents can make excellent decisions for their growing family when they are informed through empowering education, and I find great joy in offering compassionate services to women during their most precious and vulnerable moments in life. I have a wide spectrum of experience supporting families in both the birth and postpartum setting, including families with multiples, those conceiving with IVF, high risk pregnancies, advanced maternal age, adoption, VBAC, clients on bed rest, premature birth, single parents, water birth, home birth, and special needs babies. I also have experience with the Hypnobabies birthing method.
