Supporting families through the excitement and nervousness of birth - from pregnancy through postpartum

“Giving birth is a transformation and it doesn’t matter whether you’ve had eight babies before. It’s still a transformation the next time you have another baby, because you are no longer the same woman you were before you had that baby.” –Penny Handford

The Focus is YOU!

In our society, new parents get advice from all sides (some well intentioned and others...not). My mission is to turn the focus back on your wants, needs, and questions about birth and breastfeeding while being your cheerleader and advocate. Families should feel empowered to have the birth that you envision and support if the unexpected occurs.

Normalizing Birth (& Beyond)

The processes of pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum recovery are the hushed stories of back rooms and knowing glances from one mother to another. My passion is bringing these topics back into the limelight and talking about birth and breastfeeding the way we share everything else in our society, such as posting pictures of what you just ate or tweeting about your exercise routine! All parents should feel free to talk about their anxieties, the wonder of the human body, and everything in between.
