Talk about pregnancy, birth & baby
I will answer your questions about what it was like for me to be pregnant, give birth naturally, and have a newborn! When I was pregnant, I had very few close friends who had had children and I wasn't always sure who to turn to for questions on pregnancy, natural childbirth, birthing without fear, believing in my body and myself, and hearing positive pregnancy/birth/parenting stories. I want to be a resource for the women who are trying to get pregnant, expecting a baby, are curious (or even scared!) about the birthing experience, or have no idea what it's like to have a newborn baby. I'll talk about doulas, birth partners, birth plans, trusting your body, and variations of normal. I'll be honest but not sensationalistic. What you see on TV is not what you get in pregnancy and childbirth and parenting! If you want to hear about another mama's experience, let's chat! We can meet up locally or Skype for 25 minutes and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea together.
Training & Qualifications
I am a mother of one, my daughter who was born in May 2016. In 2015, I experienced an ectopic pregnancy followed by a healthy pregnancy. I used Hypnobirthing to have a natural, intervention-free/drug-free birth with my midwife in a hospital setting. I have been successfully breastfeeding since May 2016 while working out of the home part time. I'm a strong advocate for fear-free birth, gentle parenting and breastfeeding. In addition to my personal experiences, I am happy to share book recommendations, online support groups, and other resources for expecting and new mothers.
