Transformational Holistic Pregnancy Coaching

Give Birth “Your Way”

Carrying and birthing a child can be one of the most amazing times in the life of a woman, her partner and their families. It is unfortunate that many women do not experience this time as empowering or even positive. Expectant mothers every day , unknowingly hop on the medical assembly line without being fully informed of all their options. Women may not be encouraged to be fully engaged in their experience and thereby, unwittingly are robbed of their power. My life has been dedicated to shifting this outdated paradigm to a more life-affirming holistic one. I inspire women and families to take charge of their pregnancy, labor and births to give birth “their way”.
I am a pregnancy, birth & postpartum expert offering my 35 years of experience for professional coaching sessions for Pregnancy Guidance, Birth Preparation and Fourth Trimester Support.

Helping you, your partner and family to navigate your way to a decision that is aligned with your beliefs and values for the highest good of all concerned.

Addressing concerns for women who are exploring whether to have a vaginal birth or schedule a repeat cesarean.

Pregnancy often brings the opportunity, whether welcomed or not, to revisit unhealed wounds. Few of us had ideal parenting and as you approach motherhood it is common that unresolved issues from childhood arise. Women also can suffer from the effects of physical, emotional, verbal, psychological and sexual abuse. Wherever you are on your journey to reclaiming your ability to trust and be vulnerable again, I assist women to address their unique healing opportunities that this transformation time can bring.

We are living in an insanely addictive society. Addictions can include tobacco, over-or undereating, bulimia, shopping, alcohol, substances, excessive emotional dependence on your partner, sex and social or sexual anorexia. Women are often motivated to quit addictions and adopt a healthier lifestyle when they find they are “with child”. I support you on your journey to a freer way of life.

Life can bring an unexpected turn of events and our culture is unskilled in helping people to effectively grieve. Whether there has been an early miscarriage, a pregnancy complication, a rare late pregnancy loss or an unexpected cesarean, it often leads to women and their partners wrestling with the existential question “why?” I have personally experienced significant losses and have studied grief from a variety of angles. Through dispelling common fallacies about the mourning period, empathic coaching, and the use of personalized rituals, women are supported as they move through the grief process to make sense of their experience and eventually emerge into acceptance and peace.

Women need to have an arrangement with a health care provider who has accepted responsibility for their full medical or midwifery clinical care.
