I am the mom of three boys. I have had three very different birth experiences.
Thing 1 was born by emergency cesarean at 34 weeks
Thing 2 was a vaginal birth with an epidural
Thing 3 was an un-medicated vaginal hospital birth.
Having had such different experiences helps me to understand that birth is unpredictable and we need to be prepared to make choices (and sometimes change those choices) along our journey. Experiencing such different births and discovering all the choices that face expectant parents created a passion in me for educating moms- and dads-to-be on these issues.
That passion is what led me to pursue formal training to provide doula services and teach childbirth classes. I love helping expecting parents prepare for their births.
Is it possible to Enjoy Birth? YES! I have supported hundreds of moms who have enjoyed their births. From planned cesareans to 20 minute surprise unassisted home births. These moms had tools and information to enjoy the journey their birth took.
